John Graci is a leadership speaker, author of 8 best-selling books, and trainer with more than 20 years of management experience in production, office, union and non-union environments. Graci’s straightforward and tell-it-like-it-is approach comes across as refreshing and riveting, and will have leaders on all levels of business grimacing in guilt knowing they might be practicing management without a license.

John’s debut book, The Buck Stops With You exposes today’s leaders who are quick to blame employees for having bad attitudes as opposed to looking in the mirror and asking what they could have done to cause the situation. Graci’s second book, doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to offering solutions to the question: Why Don’t Employees Perform as Expected? John’s third book, Leaders Are MADE, Not Born! was released in the summer of 2018.


Graci’s books and tell-it-like-it-is approach shines light on what your employees always wanted to tell you, but never do!

This book has been intended to be easy reading and organized with short bursts of information which are straightforward and very simple things to do.

While everyone can learn to be a leader, only a select few can become a great leader. Regardless of how you got to where you are today, the route to leadership is never an easy one. As a leader, you will encounter various situations and emotions; there will be good times, stressful ones, and even terrible times. However, a great leader can always lead a team to success, regardless of the situation that they are facing. In this eBook, I take an in-depth look at some of the essential leadership qualities that separate good leaders from bad ones. 


Delegation – do you know what it actually means? Delegation is one of those leadership skills that is widely misunderstood and creates enormous problems if done incorrectly. When a team leader has the right people on board who are loyal, hard-working, and well-compensated, delegation becomes a powerful tool when deployed effectively. Just how vital is delegation to the success of a leader? Think of a linchpin.
