    John Graci is an author, consultant, and leadership adviser with more than 20 years of management experience in production, office, union and non-union environments. Graci’s folksy 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 is a frequent keynote speaker on change, motivation and communication for Fortune 500 companies, national conventions and SHRM chapters across the Midwest. He has been recognized by VIP’s for teaching management skills that instantly improve the work environment.

    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?
