Lead Beyond Influence and Create Real Results

Business today has significant challenges and opportunities — it all comes down to this: we have an unprecedented opportunity to do something significant.

When we equip, empower and launch others to lead, we develop extraordinary companies, relationships, and communities. And you don’t have to be the boss. Leadership, ultimately, has nothing to do with the title on your business card or your position on the organizational chart. It’s about who you are and how you lead —regardless of your “place” in the company.

John Ramstead’s Beyond Influence Leadership framework is a new and vital paradigm for our exciting and challenging times.

A Little Bit About Me

I started out my career as a Navy F-14 pilot and flew combat during Desert Storm.  Following my Navy career, I became a successful startup entrepreneur and then joined the management team of a Fortune 100 company.   Four years ago I had a near fatal accident that put me under hospital care for two years and required 23 surgeries.  This taught me what is truly important and how to move from success to significance. Today I am the founder of Beyond Influence, LLC, a global leadership coaching and consulting firm.

Our mission is to equip and empower leaders to achieve what has been inspired in them.  I now devote my time to leadership coaching, consulting, and speaking.

In terms of my platform:

  • My blog was named to the top 100 leadership blogs for CEO’s , Entrepreneurs and Leaders
  • My podcast gets more than 15,000 downloads a month and is listened to in 176 countries

I have been happily married to my wife, Donna, for twenty-seven years. We have three sons. We live outside of Denver, Colorado. In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and anything outdoors.

Leading in Turbulent Times
We live in a day of unprecedented challenges. Sometimes it seems nothing is nailed down. In this presentation, I share how effective leaders must develop themselves and their organizations in order to survive. For those who do, the opportunities and rewards are great.

Transformational Leadership: The Five Characteristics of Effective Leaders
