FRED JOHNSON is the results-oriented founder and CEO of InitiativeOne, Institute of Business Leadership. Founded in 1999, InitiativeOne is a leadership firm specializing in the development of an organization’s most important and only sustainable resource, its people. He and his staff inspire cultural change within an organization by focusing on and improving the behaviors of the organization’s key leaders. While pastoring four churches for nearly two decades, Dr. Johnson developed a proprietary model demonstrating a pattern of how people respond to change, both positively and negatively. After training other pastors to be more effective leaders, word soon spread to other corporate leaders and he began to address their leadership teams on how to effectively lead positive change. He is a highly sought-after speaker, and a nationally-recognized expert on the interaction and implications of different generations working in the same organization. He has taught his leadership and organizational process to groups as diverse as senior executives of Fortune 100 companies and family-owned business with less than twenty people. He is currently working on his second book, It’s Not About Your Momma! Understanding and Overcoming the Resistance to Change. He is famous for his deep belly laughs . . . and eating copious amounts of Ozzie rolls. He lives with his wife and family in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
DR. PAUL METLER developed his leadership skills early in life, working with his father and brother in their family-owned trucking business. Later, under the leadership of Dr. Fred Johnson at InitiativeOne, he worked with executive teams across North America. An expert in organizational leadership, he is a recognized author, speaker and professor, and has worked with leaders in North and South America, as well as Asia. He currently serves as the Senior Pastor of Heritage Fellowship Church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and lives with his wife and son in nearby Knoxville.
