Jon Gordon quickly engaged the group with his "high energy" style and provided everyone in the audience with a powerful and memorable user-friendly framework for taking their own energy management to a new level. We will work with him again.

Jon's book and talk 'The Energy Bus' illustrates what I believe as a leader and coach. It is a great read and has been a tool that reinforces our commitment to stay positive. When we play with great energy we win; that's what The Energy Bus is all about.

Jon Gordon is THE Authority on positive leadership in organizations today. We had Jon join us in collaborating with our physician leaders, department directors, and senior management at the beginning of the year as we developed a direction for our organization that encouraged principles espoused in both "The Energy Bus" and "The Power of Positive Leadership." After Jon's motivating and energetic presentation, our organization took a major step forward. This year, on two key surveys, we have had the highest physician engagement in over ten years, and the highest employee engagement in over five years!

From our first read of The Energy Bus, we were hooked. Jon Gordon has now been an integral part of how our business and leaders have built a culture of positivity and genuine teamwork. Our partnership with Jon has expanded from intimate team building to large-scale speaking engagements that have inspired our executives, managers, teams in the field and even our customers. Even more powerful is how easily his contagious messages will improve your life in and out of the office.
