A variety of interviews about leadership and more.
By Anthony T. Eaton
"You don't need a title to be a leader, and having a title doesn't
make you one." I believe everyone has the potential and
opportunity to be a leader no matter their status, education or
the position they hold. I prove this quote and belief true in my first book, a compilation of interviews with a diverse group of leaders from a wide
range of backgrounds and experiences.
In the book, I share sixteen interviews I have done with individuals from design leader John Saint Denise, writer and author Eric Holtzclaw to civil rights advocate James Robinson and business founder, speaker, consultant Croft Edwards. Leadership Conversations brings together a vast range of experiences and perspectives on business and individual leadership. If you are looking for inspiration this is the book for you: but don’t take my word for it, here is what others have said. (Read More)

A CONVERSATION WITH - Tal Shnall
By Anthony T. Eaton
“What I have learned in customer service applies to being a
great leader. It’s caring for people and building positive
relationships with them. Leaders have to work on themselves in order to give the best service to the people they lead. The best leaders aren’t the ones that advance their own cause but the ones serving the needs, wants and aspiration of their communities. As John Quincy Adams, the second president of the United States said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” ~Tal Shnall”
Tal Shnall is a Customer Experience (CX) mentor, with more than 20 years’ experience as a lead Brand Trainer and Hotels operations business leader. He has worked for the top hotel brands such as Marriott, Hilton, Starwood and Intercontinental Hotel Group, to develop Customer Service Training, Leadership Development, Corporate Training, and Executive Coaching.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF ABOUT RESPECT?
Hindsight is 20/20 so they say, but how often do we think about who we were when we were younger? If we had the chance to talk to our younger self about things with the knowledge and experience we have now, what would we say? I pose this question and invite you to join the conversation and submit your answer and I will post it here. Check back to see what others say.

An Interview with Karin Hurt
By Anthony T. Eaton 12/01/2016
Karin Hurt is a former Verizon Wireless executive, a keynote
speaker, leadership consultant, and MBA professor. With over twenty years of experience in sales, marketing, customer service, and human resources she helps leaders improve business results by building deeper trust and connection with their teams.
AE: What drew you into what you are doing today?
KH: I’ve always had a passion for leadership, even as a small child. My mother tells stories of me lining up my stuffed animals and telling them what to do ;-) The first 2 decades of my career at Verizon were all HR and leadership development related. My graduate degrees are all about leadership. The second decade at Verizon, I was challenged to go practice what I had been teaching with large teams in executive roles, and that was a blast.In my final role at Verizon I had an opportunity to work deeply with all of our outsourced call center partners as I led that channel. I realized in working with those companies, how much I had to offer in terms of blending the bottom line with the human spirit. I began writing a blog and that began to resonate internationally. Leaders started reaching out to me to keynote speak and do consulting—which of course I couldn’t do and sustain my executive role—so I took the leap and haven’t looked back (Read More)
