The Art of Inspiration is all about chasing your dreams and my over 40-year career is one of those journey’s. Although no one has the only and exact answer, I believe I have some stories and experiences that may help to find the recipe for success. All of us will have to overcome obstacles and transform our lives. My career has been no different and now after a wonderful career I enjoy the opportunity to inspire people to go after their dreams no matter where they are in their life and career.
I am a graduate of St John’s University, class of 1980, Staten Island campus a commuter college as I worked and paid my way through college. I believe you, your team and your audience will appreciate this. I realize this is not a political view point but a social one where I like to talk about how hard work and enthusiasm are still critical components of success whether in a big company or as an entrepreneur or in life in general. There is no substitute for hard work.
I am a witty, Blue-Collar Guy who rose through the ranks at UPS. I then became a CEO and Board member of a telecom company after UPS. Today, I am now a small business owner. I think you and your people will enjoy the story and the values, ethics and hard work which are the blueprint. This is also something I believe will can all respect. I believe you, your people and your audiences will appreciate that I started unloading trailers as a part time employee at UPS out of High School and worked my way into a senior level. I believe that we all have a responsibility to leave things a little better than we found it. This is LEGACY
I have recently published a book that I think will relate to your audience. I believe Values Matter. I wrote the book in a very different way than past leaders and most leadership and business books have been written. I also believe my book will be an enjoyable read in some difficult times. The book was released February 15. 2017 and it is an Amazon 5 STAR rated book. The title of the book is Tighten the Lug Nuts.
It is all about how we make choices and how those choices determine the kind of leader we can be.
In my book Tighten the Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership, I use my over forty years of experience in supply chain, logistics and transportation, retail, sales and operational management at UPS, and in my CEO and Director roles at a company I worked at after my UPS days, to explore the ways a true leader can add value as a trusted advisor, mentor, and visionary who uses a process approach to lead the organization and its people to new levels of success.
In an engaging, personal, and witty style (through my character Joe Scafone) I detail how leaders must make their three major constituents equal priority by actively listening to their needs and building strong relationships. By following the steps that are laid out, you can truly learn the importance of Balanced Leadership. I believe the true measure of a great leader is someone who leaves things a little better than they found them. In Tighten the Lug Nuts, you’ll follow Joe Scafone as he demonstrates the importance of small acts of kindness, the power that comes with understanding your role, and the freedom that accepting responsibility affords. Learn how to Tighten The Lug Nuts in your own life to keep from becoming overwhelmed and to take the steps to becoming a truly balanced and valuable leader. I was hoping you might find value in this book and I would be honored to discuss my book with you, your team and your audience.
