Tom Corner – Author & Motivational Speaker
Leaders need to change their mindset and their approach
and how they approach their employees in the work place
and you don’t just plaster gaudy principles up there and
then your executives don’t abide by them.
Tom Corner is a motivational speaker, mentor, and the author of several books, including an upcoming book about the disconnect in the corporate world. Based on his years of experience in big business, he explains how some work cultures are changing for the worse as a result of COVID-19 and why some business leaders need to start valuing employees as people – or risk losing them and money. Tom is the author of five books, the most recent being Borrowed Eyes and Feet: Finding Enlightenment After Rage. He published his first children’s book in 2014 – List for Santa, List for Life! His follow-up publications include Positive Thoughts, Positive Life! Mommy Why Do You Have Two Birthdays? and Life is Fine, When You are Aligned! Corner’s successful careers in the restaurant, hospitality and financial services industries paved the way to his focus on mentoring and helping people find their path in life. Tom says, “Although most company executives won’t admit it, the reality is many in the workforce are disengaged. Companies are throwing thousands of dollars out the window because of that lost productivity, which stems from a toxic workplace and a lack of authentic concern for employees from leaders. Leaders need to start leading with love.”

When people stick with generosity, when people focus their
minds on how they can contribute to the lives of the
people around them, they do better.
