A leading production company in San Diego, BizVid Communications enjoys meeting industry leaders in our efforts to craft captivating videos for our clients. One such occasion was when BizVid taped Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy for the commencement of their Portraits of Jesus seminar. Business leader, author and oft sought speaker, Ken Blanchard was on hand for the seminar and BizVid took the opportunity to prepare our blog spotlight featuring this remarkable man and his international prowess.
One of Blanchard’s first books was a worldwide best seller. It was called the One Minute Manager. His clear and simple business directives captivated readers and opened the door for his legacy. Ken and his several companies are highly sought after for business advice and support from around the globe.
A professing Christian, Blanchard’s tips often include biblical and moral references, with heavy doses of common sense.
According to his website, the San Diego-based Ken Blanchard Companies is a global leader in workplace learning, productivity, performance, and leadership training solutions. They help companies improve their performance, productivity, and bottom-line results. The Ken Blanchard Companies, and its founders Ken and Margie Blanchard, have been honored with a number of prestigious leadership and management training awards during the company’s 30 year history.
Blanchard’s culture encourages and supports many grass-roots efforts led by emerging leaders that promote, organize, and educate on charitable giving, fitness, volunteering, and conserving natural resources. The company, as a whole, believes in the importance of sharing the success of their organization with others and investing time in the improvement and appreciation of the communities in which they live and do business.
Ken Blanchard’s faith helped co-found an ancillary and clearly Christ-based outreach, called Lead Like Jesus. The Lead Like Jesus ministry is not called to run ministries or businesses or start churches, according to their website, they are called to train the leaders who do so in ways that God is glorified, people are served, and organizations are more effective in impacting the world for the Kingdom of God.
As stated in our video blog, a brief visit from the inspirational Blanchard suggests that he is more than a businessman’s businessman. He’s a leader of leaders.
