John Izzo obtained his Bachelor of Sociology from Hofstra University in 1978 before completing a dual Masters degree from McCormick Divinity School in Theology while simultaneously attending the University of Chicago to complete his Masters in Organizational Psychology. Dr. Izzo then completed his Ph.D. in Organizational Communication from Kent State University shortly thereafter. He is the author of over 60 articles, and is the co-author of the best selling book Awakening Corporate Soul: Four Paths to Unleash the Power of People at Work and its companion workbook. His pioneering work has been featured on CNN, ABC World News, the LA Times, Canada AM, CBC Radio, The American Medical Journal, B.C. Business, The Seattle Times and the cover of Association Management Magazine on Creating Inspiring Work Places. His new book Values-Shift: The New Work Ethic and What it Means for Business (Prentice-Hall) defines how and why our work ethic is changing, and it focuses on the six major shifts people expect from work. As well, if offers practical ideas on what companies and managers can do to retain and inspire the people they need and value.
Based on leading edge research and experiences with more than 200 companies, John Izzo helps people understand these shifting values and how they differ across generations and across gender. John Izzo works with leaders who are serious about finding and keeping talented people and who are willing to do what it takes to create an organization where values and purpose are the foundation of the culture.
At Izzo Consulting Inc. we believe that the greatest resource any company can have is an engaged, vibrant and committed workforce. In fact, in 1998 Gallup International studied 2500 business units in North America examining the relationship between employee engagement and bottom line results. Specifically, they found the business units with the highest level of engagement produced 25% more profit, had 10% lower turnover, and were 50% more likely to create higher levels of customer loyalty.
An engaged, vital, committed work force is one of the keys to competitive edge in the new century. But how do organizations create high levels of commitment and engagement? With the values of workers fundamentally shifting, what works? How must leaders shift their thinking and their behavior? We have spent the last decade consulting and researching that question and stand ready to assist you in achieving your goals.
"Many thanks for the excellent presentation you gave at our annual Leadership Symposium. We in corporate America need to be reminded of the importance of finding purpose in our work, and creating an environment for others to find purpose and meaning. Thanks again for sharing with us your insight and wisdom."
