I want you and your team to leave a mark in Leadership and Life. I want to reintroduce you and your team to the importance of increasing our Education, Engagement and Accountability. This three-legged stool is the ONLY way to success in Leadership and Life. Results, customer service, morale, health, finances and relationships are only improved by increasing Education, Engagement and Accountability.
This is what L. Hanson of Rogers, Arkansas wrote after a program; Greg brings to the table tremendous insight about leadership, relationships and personal responsibilities that demands one to take their personal inventory; but he does it with such a humorous gentleness that you’re left with a feeling of, “Wow! I can’t wait to get started!”
There are only two mindsets; The Leader – Owner Mindset and employee – follower thinking. If you would like the Leader – Owner Mindset at your next meeting or conference, thank you in advance for considering me as a speaker.
Short Speaker Bio:
If it pertains to Human Resources, leadership, management, supervision or life; Greg Gilbert has been there, done that, journaled it, heard the grievance and is now teaching and writing about it.
Early in his leadership career, the “if it’s not written, it didn’t occur” chip was implanted in his mind. In 1978, he began journaling successes, failures and what led to each. This continued through different positions and levels of leadership. These journal entries became Keynotes, Seminars and the leadership book, “Leading Like You Own It – Why We Never Wax A Rental” in 2015.
Prior to retiring from a Fortune 100 company, Greg served his last 12 years as the primary Human Resources contact to over 2200 team members. Additional journals were required.
Although I am proud of many things in my personal life, the five things I am most proud of that would interest you are;
- Transformed the perception of Human Resources from the police to a partner. This allowed us to be proactive instead of reactive.
- Removed the drama from personnel issues by keeping the focus on results instead of personalities or emotions.
- Continued to battle absence after FMLA, and won.
- Have been informed by many attendees of a “light bulb moment” in my sessions. This is the greatest validation of my sessions.
Hi, I’m Greg Gilbert. I am a Speaker, Author and Leadership Coach.
One word describes what I want for you;
verb 1. Improve on or surpass (an existing or previous level or achievement).
If it pertains to Human Resources, leadership, management, supervision or life, I’ve been there, done that, journaled it, heard the grievance and I’m now teaching and writing about it. I have been able to utilize, witness and share the unbeatable benefit of Education, Engagement, Accountability and the Leader/Owner Mindset with thousands across the country. I measure the benefit of my program through the feedback, referrals and subsequent requests for additional programs.
I have witnessed the benefit of Education, Engagement and Accountability as a telephone repairman, Supervisor, Area Manager and as the primary HR contact for over 2000 team members. I began journaling “what worked” and “what failed” in 1978. This has led to content that has been shared with thousands of attendees. The experiences are now also shared through my books.
I am a firm believer in presentations and books with both content and humor. I sometimes utilize “Mr. HR With A Guitar” as a unique method of sharing these lessons and adding humor. I have discovered the frustrations and challenges of Leadership and Life are only eliminated through increased Education, Engagement and Accountability. There is no other way. I invite you to join me on this “journey through my journals” through my books and Leadership Development Sessions.
Unbeknownst to me, one of my programs was attended by and covered by a local newspaper reporter.
Some of my articles have been featured on The Good Men Project website which receives over five million visitors per month.
These are a few of my core beliefs that make up the foundation of my presentations.
I believe “due to the economy” is frequently used in error because it sounds better than “due to poor leadership.”
I believe in Education, Engagement and total Accountability of every team member at every level.
I believe businesses succeed or fail because of the presence or absence of Education, Engagement and Accountability.
I believe every organization has “that person” who “runs a tight ship.” I believe with the right tools, lessons and opportunities, most people can plug their leaks and become “that person.
I believe the results, profitability and morale of any organization can be improved by increasing Education, Engagement and Accountability.
I believe a team never does what they CAN until the leader does what they SHOULD.
I believe it is impossible to lose Hope when we are getting better at something.
I believe in having FUN! “Mr. HR With A Guitar” was created to add humor and a unique method of Education to my presentations.
Most importantly, I believe I can help your organization.
This story sums it all up; Others.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to sharing our message with your entire organization.
