Joel Leonard has traveled the globe to elevate workforce performance. Over the last two years, he has helped support the growth and expansion of the 11-county region surrounding Fort Bragg by coaching the eight local community college presidents. Joel introduced numerous workshops, new industry certifications and technologies into that region. Most notably, Goodyear reports that by attending his classes, the company has saved more than $800,000 by conserving energy costs.

The average age of hundreds of thousands of maintenance people across the globe is 48. Members of the boomer generation have started to retire, leaving empty maintenance positions unfilled. Companies are facing a challenge in finding qualified workers to fill these vacancies. With no one to fix broken pipes, frayed wires, aging equipment, and few who understand how to support modern automation technologies, nations are finding themselves in what Joel Leonard has coined, “The Maintenance Crisis.”
