Why Ben?

If you want to turn lower and mid-level performers into top performers and increase innovation and productivity across your group or organization, you’re in the right place.

If you are trying to develop internal leadership and human capital, you’re also in the right place.

The truth is, to get what you want from the people you manage and to drive excellence within an organization, you must learn about human nature — what motivates people and what de-motivates people.

It simply is not effective to learn the characteristics of “great” leaders. What does “be a great communicator” matter if you communicate the wrong things?

Ben is about clarity of actions. With actionable guidance —like What Exactly Are You Managing People to Be? — you can accomplish greater things through people.

“I set a goal for myself to develop expertise in leading large numbers of people. In pursuit of this goal, I read every leadership and management book I could find and studied the history of human accomplishments, the actions taken and the reasons for those actions.” – Ben


Also, you can read how Ben acquired his leadership skills.

“In my last executive position, on one occasion we sent a large workforce to a nuclear electric generating station to overhaul machinery. Several of the top level managers at that station asked questions of my people on the job and later remarked that they were unable to tell supervisors from workers. That workforce consisted of well-trained, industrious, strong and independent, successful and proud supervisors and workers, almost all of them having the five traits of a Five Star person.”
