Run the gauntlet of change with Jeffrey Hayzlett...
What's stopping you from making the changes your business needs to thrive? You've always had the ability to institute positive change in your company. With Running the Gauntlet, I can give you the inspiration and knowledge to make it happen and take control of it - instead of letting it control you.
Running the Gauntlet builds on the principles from my first bestseller, The Mirror Test, and will take you on a step-by-step journey to:
- Develop a 'takeover mentality' to execute the right changes and deal with any disruptions they may cause
- Summon the vision and courage necessary for driving change and sustaining your company's newfound momentum
- Sharpen the mental and emotional toughness to make strategic, lasting change.
Change is already happening all around you. The most dangerous move in business is the failure to make a move at all.

From his career as a Fortune 100 C-Suite Executive, Hayzlett brings your feet to the fire and challenges you to become the change agent you are. Introducing new concepts like Friendsourcing, The 118 Pitch (the elevator pitch 2.0), Focused Executive Program and more, Hayzlett's bold, brash style will motivate you to make the necessary changes to your organizations and show you how you can build your business towards growth. For too long, organizations have become increasingly good at downsizing their business in efforts to cut costs. Now is the time for growth. Now is the time to Run the Gauntlet.  Change your attitude, change your business, change your future.


The first time we hired Jeff to deliver a keynote at our Sales 2.0 conferences the audience ratings went off the charts. Jeff delivers high impact ideas with high energy and he shares real life stories drawn from his rich business experience. He is a rock-star when it comes to subjects such as marketing, change management, Sales 2.0, Social Media, innovation, leadership, motivation, human psychology and belly-to-belly selling. What-s best about him is that he keeps on innovating and he never delivers the same material twice. Every time he speaks for us he fills the room, he holds his audience spellbound and you don't see anyone checking their iPhone or Blackberry. Jeff, I applaud you.
