The Twelve Core Action Values
Joe challenges people to think about their personal values, how those values are reflected in their attitudes and behaviors, and what changes they can make to do a better job of living their values. He provides an overview of the Values Coach course on The Twelve Core Action ValuesTM – universal values that have a life-transforming impact upon people who take them to heart.

Honey and Glue, Because RecruitingandRetention is Not Just One Word
We often speak of recruiting and retention strategies as if they are part of the same package, but as Joe points out in this eye-opening presentation they each rely upon hitting very different motivational hot buttons. He describes practical values-based recruiting and retention strategies employed by organizations that have been recognized for their status as best places to work.
Discovering the Lion in Your Mirror
The collective self-talk, self-image, and emotional baggage of the people who work in your organization constitutes an invisible, but very real, ceiling on your performance potential. In this entertaining and inspiring presentation, Joe shares practical tools and strategies to help your people break through the fears that are holding them back, stop making excuses and giving in to self-imposed limitations, and work toward becoming their meant-to-be best selves.
Leadership Lessons from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings
While he is best remembered (and loved) as the creator of some of the most popular and enduring works in the history of fiction, J.R.R. Tolkien also had a masterful intuitive understanding of leadership. In this presentation, Joe uses Tolkien’s characters to illustrate 8 core leadership archetypes, and scenes from the stories to illustrate essential leadership strategies.
The Physics of Cultural Transformation
A uniquely different and completely entertaining way to look at the culture of your organization – and how to move that culture in a positive direction. Joe shows how the principles of Newton’s physics (including force fields, gravitational pull, and escape velocity); Einstein’s physics (including relativity, critical mass, and energy conversion); and quantum physics (including the uncertainty principle, quantum leaps, and nonlocality) can be applied to organizational change.
VP, Patient Care Services, Midland Memorial Hospital
“Joe was inspiring, transforming and even a miracle worker. He provided an impactful presentation that touched many of our managers that day. After he left and in the days following, managers and others have read the book and say they are being transformed. These were already high performing managers.

"Values Coach has been a valued resource for Tucson Medical Center… We've shared The Florence Prescription with more than 400 TMC employees – it's gotten rave reviews and I believe is helping us foster a culture where people take values more seriously, and take a greater sense of ownership for and pride in their work. And by guiding us in the process of crystallizing TMC's core values and the expectations created by those values, Values Coach has helped us lay a solid foundation for our future growth and development. We couldn't have done it without this support."

“The Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) is a proud sponsor of the Values Collaborative... NHA staff is currently progressing thought The Twelve Core Action Values workbook to align our own values with the values of our Association so that our employees will have a sense of ownership in working on behalf of our members. Through this Collaborative we will encourage our health care peers to be better caregivers, better colleagues, better employees and better people in every aspect of their lives. We believe that we can transform the health care we deliver by living our values, improving our attitudes and creating an environment that fosters a strong sense of personal ownership for the well-being of our patients and our communities. Participating in the Values Collaborative is one of the most important actions a hospital can take to prepare people for the changes we know are going to shake the rural healthcare system in the years to come.”

We would gladly hire him again and again."
