“Mack and Ria understand people! The dynamic team made such an impact on our front line of supervision that they were begging for more training! …We highly recommend Mack and Ria – whether you need a bump start for your leaders or are growing organically – they deliver!”
“Absolutely love your messages. Watched Blue-Collar Leadership series 1-20 last night. Also purchased 15 copies of the book for my staff. The message is real and delivered in a very down-to-earth approach that everyone can understand. Thank You very much.”
“Mack and Ria,
Thank you for speaking on Blue-Collar Leadership at our West GA SHRM Meeting today! We really appreciate you taking the time to share your knowledge with our group. It is always informative and relevant!”
“Fantastic book for all organizations. It brought back many memories. Good leaders make a difference, it’s not how much you know it’s how much you care. I would recommend this book for any one on the work force.”
“Just got my autographed copy of Mack’s new book Blue-Collar Leadership: Leading from the Front Lines!!! Thank you Mack Story for making sure everyone knows that they can lead and move up in any position….me and my staff still credit you as a HUGE part of our 2013 National Championship!”
“My first words are, GET SIGNED UP! This training is not, and I stress, not your everyday leadership seminar! I have never been a part of anything like it. After 30 years in technology and two years in Concrete Construction, I have attended dozens and sent hundreds to the so-called ‘Leadership-Training.’ I can tell you that while all of the courses, classes, webinars, and seminars, had good intentions, nothing can touch what Mack and Ria Story provide. I just wish I had it 20 years ago…I could go on-and-on…100% of the team that attended said that they were ‘blown-away, they did not see that conviction and passion coming.’ Many thanks, Mack and Ria!”
“I used Ria and Mack for training of a group of change management leaders and also a group of manufacturing senior leaders. Ria and Mack’s training was very relevant and very inspiring. Their delivery kept the group engaged! I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone needing to motivate your group or for leader training. Awesome!”
“For me, it’s been the best six months for training and growth in my 38 years here.”
“Having worked in manufacturing plants for most of my 30 year career, I found Mack Story’s Blue Collar Leadership to be a very practical guide for all who aspire to lead, with or without a title.
The lessons in the book are organized in 30 easy to read chapters, each only three pages long and chock-full of valuable insight based on Mack’s own personal experiences as well as a wealth of pertinent advice from a large variety of credible sources.
Mack’s approach powerfully compels the readers to take responsibility for their attitudes and actions and create the future that they desire, if they so choose.”
“Dynamic teaching, that will undoubtedly revolutionize leadership and continuous improvement. I generally highlight key information while reading books, but I found myself practically highlighting everything. Going to purchase this book for my staff, and kick start our growing and developing focus. Also, I enjoy the short high-impact chapters.” ~Verified Amazon Purchaser
“The time I spent with Mack learning from him was nothing short of life changing. I simply do not believe it is possible for someone NOT to gain value from the investment that he puts into the people he crosses paths with. Mack has a keen ability to recognize talent in others, meet people exactly where they are, and generate the right kind of inspiration that makes you want to get up and do something amazing with your life! Mack is without a doubt, a truly authentic transformational leader who will always go the extra mile for you!”
“Joining forces with Mack was a revolutionary opportunity for our company. We have achieved incredible results while witnessing the growth and development of our associates as they have been empowered.”
“Thank you for hosting the Blue-Collar Leadership training class. Hoshizaki America sent four attendees and they all had positive feedback. They stated it really inspired them to want to have courage to do the right thing and work hard to be a team with their co-workers.”
“Mack writes this book as that mentor you never had but wanted! He fills the voids and like the things a parent would pass on to their children knowing the words would carry for years to come, the book is written to assist any individual in their career at any stage. It’s hard to put into text the impact this book could have if applied and as Mack rightly states, ‘this book should never be given away’ the contents are too important they build you, they could even make you – Fantastic!!”
“Ria and Mack have opened up a world for our team individually and collectively. The training brought out confidence and enthusiasm from persons who needed the opportunity to know that they were significant. They are hungry for more information about how to influence others and the momentum is rolling. Your genuine approach and authenticity make it safe to grow and learn. Thank you for what you have done for Cobb County.”
“Mack, this book is so inspirational, thank you! Currently on chapter 20. I have read many leadership books. Blue-Collar Leadership Leading from the Front Lines is exactly what I need right now. I value your authenticity and tenacious spirit!”
“My interaction with Mack Story was nothing short of life changing. My personal mentoring session with Mack was engaging, encouraging, inspiring and so much more. Mack is passionate and authentic and I consider it a tremendous honor to have had the privilege of hearing a small piece of his story and knowledge. Our session opened my mind in so many positive ways, I have truly never felt so energized and unstoppable in my adult life. I would highly recommend Mack to any organization or individual that is serious about implementing change and reaching their full potential. This man has a God-given talent that will transform anyone willing to hear what he has to say.”
“What others try to explain in complexity Mack can state elegantly in just a few simple words… Many books have been written where the audience is intended to be the CEO or other senior leaders with advice on how to make the company better or how they might convince the front line workers to go along…This book is written to the lowest paid, bottom rank employees who think they have no say or influence on anything. Mack will show them how they can make the company better from the position where they are at and in so doing lift themselves up rapidly, get noticed and become the kind of leader people will naturally want to go along with.”
“Mack does a fantastic job of helping the reader understand the boundaries that all leaders face, can face, and will need to overcome these challenges. Being a front line worker myself (USMC), I understand the demands and frustrations that can often be placed on these individuals, so it is refreshing to see someone such as Mack strive to better himself and build towards a great leader.
If you want a book that breaks down leadership into easy to follow scenarios and processes, read this book!!”
“Mack does an incredible job of conveying what it means to be a leader. I truly believe anyone who reads this book will benefit immensely! Thanks so much Mack!”
“Mack, Words can’t express my gratitude! You helped me re-point my life toward my true north. The word you do is powerful. Guiding, leading, teaching, and coaching are your true gifts of contribution to the world. I could have never dreamed of the doors that would open when we first talked. Thank you for who you are and what you give to the world.”
