    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 14 years, John has worked with the U.S Army leading workforce development teams and creating leadership programs to improve individual, team and organizational performance.



    Change is inevitable; how we respond to it is a choice. 

    To succeed then requires people impacted by the change to understand the external drivers causing the disruption. Just as important is to equip those affected with the ability to manage their internal feelings of loss and confusion that accompany the change.

    Unfortunately, most people struggle with change. They either dig in and fight against it or give in and haphazardly support the new way of doing business.

    The big question is – how do we manage change while helping employees transition effectively? What simple strategies exist when it comes to an experience that can be so difficult to handle? And why is change so difficult to begin with? This program will answer all those questions and more.


    Participants will learn to:

    •  Explore how perspectives impact their ability to deal effectively with external change and the internal chaos it creates.
    •  Recognize the need to work effectively during change, rather than focusing on trying to just make it stop.
    • Expand the range of situations in which they can effectively function during change
