Speaker: John Bentley, Workforce Development Specialist



After receiving shocking feedback that his leadership style was similar to opening a shook coke can, John began a journey to understand what caused him to spew all over people. The discoveries he made were not easy to accept but he possessed the desire to learn and willingness to overcome limiting beliefs that caused him to destroy trust and derail high performance.

Less than four years later while serving in the Air Force, John was awarded the prestigious Lance P. Sijan Leadership Award from the Air Education and Training Command.  Recognizing how the encouragement and support of others played an integral part in this achievement, John became a self-proclaimed student of self-leadership. He is living proof that you can learn to lead yourself so you earn the right to lead others.

John retired from the Air Force after a distinguished 21-year career. During this time, he developed and led several high performing teams across five continents.  His last assignment was facilitating leadership, management and communication skills to the Department of Defense and allied nation senior enlisted leaders.

For the past 15 years, John has worked with the U.S Army leading workforce development teams and creating leadership programs to improve individual, team and organizational performance. He is the contributing author along with Ken Blanchard, Jack Canfield and Stephen Covey to the book ‘Speaking of Success’. John has written several articles including ‘Team Innovation: A Necessity for Today’s Business Environment’ published ATD.

Session Description:

Wherever you want to lead - in your organization, your community, or your family - you have to have clear beliefs about how to motivate and engage yourself and others. To do so, requires you to understand your attitudes, your values, and what drives you - especially your behavior. Because your behavior over time influences your relationships with others, it is important they understand where you are coming from, what they can expect from you, and what you expect from them in return. Incorporating these into an authentic leadership point of view will enable you to communicate better and establish greater trust with those you work and live with

During this interactive thought-provoking session you will:

  • Determine the outcome of a having a clear, teachable leadership point of view.
  • Examine the personal benefits of clarifying your leadership point of view.
  • Identify and practice the steps for developing your leadership point of view.
