What John Spence Talks About:

Achieving Business Excellence
This is John’s most intensive business improvement keynote. It was specifically created to help a management team take a hard, honest look at their business in order to determine exactly where their strengths and weaknesses are and then create a focused plan for how to succeed at a higher level in the marketplace. John has presented this program to CEOs and senior managers in more than two hundred companies with extremely positive results.

Some of the key elements of this workshop include:

  • An understanding of the importance of creating a clear vision and a focused strategy
  • Numerous benchmarking audits against top companies
  • An understanding of the four primary and four secondary drivers of business excellence
  • An examination of the importance of mastering the organization’s “moments of truth”
  • The discovery of why it is critical to own the voice of the customer
  • An in-depth look at how organizations create effective strategies
  • An examination of the nine steps to effective execution
  • The discovery of how to greatly increase accountability across the organization

At the end of this workshop, the team will leave with a much-improved understanding of their business and a plan of specific action steps that address what needs to be done immediately to improve the revenues, market share, and profitability of the organization.

Advanced Leadership
Based on the more than five years of intensive research that John carried out in order to write his book Excellence By Design: Leadership, as well as his personal experience working with some of the world’s top leaders in business, government, higher education, and the non-profit sector, this program will identify the key characteristics of outstanding leaders in a clear, straightforward, and practical manner.

Taught as a mixture of lecture, group discussion, individual workshops, and group workshops, this program teaches participants the fundamental skills and attitudes necessary to be an effective leader and the tools to implement a successful leadership development action plan for improving those skills.

The Essentials of Accountability
Perhaps the most challenging issue facing many companies today is creating a culture of accountability and disciplined execution in which people make and keep their promises and deliver the expected results consistently. Because this topic has been so important to many of John’s clients, he has created a special program that focuses on the most important skills, tools, attitudes, and actions necessary for greatly increasing the levels of accountability and disciplined execution across an entire organization. Based on extensive research and more than twenty years as a business owner and management consultant, this program delivers John’s best information and advice on how to build an organization that is focused on delivering positive results.

Building A Winning Culture
Based on the findings of a national Gallup poll, the Great Places to Work Study, the Firms of Endearment Study, and John’s personal experience working in some of the top companies in America, this session focuses on what it takes to build and sustain an organizational culture that creates highly satisfied, engaged, and loyal employees who possess an “ownership mentality.” The goal of this program is for attendees to understand the importance of creating and supporting a culture that embraces change, fosters accountability, has a strong sense of urgency, and maintains disciplined execution in order to deliver the required business results.
