Jude has vast business experience including being a highly successful service advisor, the owner and operator of a hybrid on-line and print marketing company, a top performer in the financial industry, and had a record setting career in retail management.

Jude uses his rich experience and business success as he consults, trains and coaches results focused solutions with clients.

Jude and I discuss hot topics that are on everyone’s mind today.  Among them:

  • Becoming a legendary or sought after employer in your town where top technicians want to come to work.
  • How building a hiring system improves the quality of your hires.
  • Company Culture is precious; Build it and Protect it he explains.
  • An important KPI that indicates if you are servicing your customers well.
  • Where the future of training is heading.
  • Why it is so important to look at your business form a 30,000-foot view.

I asked Jude about top books he recommends. He shared the books that he often uses when working with his clients:

  • The Compassionate Samurai – Brian Klemmer
  • 80/20 Sales and Marketing – Perry Marshall
  • Work the System – Sam Carpenter
  • Getting Things Done – David Allen
  • Leadership and Self Deception – The Arbinger Institute
  • The Flip Side – Flip Flippen
  • 7 Men – Eric Metaxas
  • Start With Why – Simon Sinek
  • The Power of Vulnerability – Brene Brown
  • Emotional Intellegence 2.0 – Travis Bradberry
  • EntreLeadership – Dave Ramsey
  • The Emyth Revisited – Michael Gerber
  • Extreme Ownership – Jocko Willink & Leif Babin

Jude is quick to point out with this disclaimer … If a person reads these books in 12 months and implements/applies even 10% of the principals taught, they will not be the same person a year from now. These represent an opportunity for more growth than an average human can take on in a year… He says ‘Go big or go home, right?!’

In November 2016, Jude was a featured presenter at AAPEX 2016. His training covered:

  • Finding top performer employees.
  • Identifying them from the rest of the crowd.
  • Keeping them in your business long term.
  • Building a comprehensive hiring system.
  • How to eliminate time wasted when hiring.
