"If leadership is best assessed by looking at who is following - John Hatfield is a leader. He influences out of a spirit of vulnerability and as a principle-centered leader. I have had the opportunity to be led by and to lead John - both experiences were highlights.

His winsomeness, relational skills, and insightfulness into people allow him to lead, promote, and recruit naturally and with significant effect. John leads with a developmental bias and each person that works with him feels valued and affirmed in the process.”

"Angelique Weiley Vuilleumier is a world class leader and champion for excellence. After watching Angelique magnetically lead a room full of top leaders from the stage at a national event I was immediately convinced I needed to find a place for her on my team.
As a consultant to our company she became the de facto vice president of culture development and engagement for the global organization of entrepreneurs we are entrusted to train and mentor. After only a few short months working together Angelique quickly became the MVP of our entire company. She was truly the glue and the force of insight that helped us move through exponential growth, while maintaining a standard of excellence.
She became so valuable, in fact, that I entrusted the entire operation of our company to her to poke around in and offer feedback. This allowed me to watch her shine in her gifting of coaching our clients on weekly training workshops, which consistently received five star raving reviews. One of Angelique’s greatest accomplishments for our company was helping us mastermind a training program that now empowers our clients to develop proper mindset and mental toughness for survival in the entrepreneurial environment.
Angelique’s integrity is impeccable. Her work ethic is second-to-none. Her ability to deliver results is rare. If you’re looking for an A-player to lead your organization, your team, or you individually to the next level in the area of cultural development, employee engagement or mindset then Angelique is your choice. Her strategic wisdom, critical thinking skills and passion for excellence makes her the perfect catalyst for any organization or individual seeking a breakthrough."

"Without a doubt, one of the highlights of my fifteen years in full-time ministry has been working under the direction and authority of John Hatfield. He is every bit the leader, recruiter, trainer, motivator and barrier-buster that you could hope for in a supervisor. He thinks so strategically and communicates the vision so passionately that you can’t help but find yourself doing anything within your power to see him, yourself, and the entire team succeeds. John cares not just about the immediate task at hand, but about developing the skills and gifts of the people within his organization in an effort to build them as tomorrow’s leaders.

In fact, he creates an environment of trust with whoever he is around by seeking first to understand and then to be understood. As a result, John (originally) built a ministry out of nothing, and grew it to impacting at least 400+ students directly year after year, with a ripple effect to tens of thousands others across the US and world. It has been an honor and privilege to work with and under John Hatfield.”

"One of my greatest experiences has been the opportunity to work on a team under Angelique’s leadership. Working with Angelique is quite enjoyable, and always a learning experience. She embodies the characteristics of a great leader, including excellent organizational skills, a genuine caring for people, and character that is beyond reproach. I have personally experienced Angelique building a huge team, and leading them to success.
Angelique is a fine trainer, as well as a tremendous leader. She understands and demonstrates that the best way to ensure the success of her team is by helping each of her team members succeed. She does this through her superior skills in coaching and mentoring. She not only possesses the knowledge and wisdom to share with those she is training and coaching, but also the teaching skills to transfer that knowledge, and the sincere desire to see every one of her team members grow and succeed. She is a great mentor and role model.
Another area in which Angelique has a unique insight is that of the development of organizational cultures. She has a deep understanding of the components and nuances of cultures within organizations, and has created strategies and approaches to actually build positive, powerful cultures. I have personally witnessed, and benefited from, her doing just that.
Angelique also excels at project management. She possesses a keen grasp of the mechanics of taking a project from initiation to closing. More importantly, she has a rare talent with the more subtle, and difficult aspect of managing projects – that of directing and motivating her people toward project success. This is another area in which she has taught and mentored others to achieve the level of mastery that she has attained. It is also another example of how she measures her own success by the success of others. Angelique will excel in any position that involves the directing and managing an organization. I would enthusiastically recommend her for any such position, and I know that any organization would benefit enormously from her presence.

"John Hatfield is an extraordinarily gifted leader. As a decorated military officer, top rated professor of leadership and mentor to over 30,000 business owners, I can say with confidence that John Hatfield is the one percent of the one percent. A few key strengths really jump off the page for me with John. The first is his ability to quickly and intuitively sense the culture of an organization and where misalignment exists from its stated mission. John’s diverse global experience with organizations and teams empowers him to bring deep wisdom that always hits the mark with required cultural shifts that bring an organization back into a position where it can lead in the marketplace and on mission from its greatest place of power.
John’s knack for doing this is uncanny and truly a gift, but that’s only where it starts, because John shines the brightest in his ability to empower organizational leaders and its teams to implement at the highest level on his strategic insights. John creates cultural change to near perfection because of the platform of personal integrity by which he lives by. This platform allows him to build credibility fast with those he’s leading that then paves the way for one of his greatest gifts, which is that of mentoring. John has a keen sense of team dynamics. This sense allows him to know whether to offer a challenging and attention grabbing mentorship style or a firm hand holding style that empowers those he’s been entrusted to lead with the confidence and clarity they need to execute at the highest level.
The best way I can describe John’s gifting in totality is that it’s like watching a masterful conductor direct his symphony understanding with exact precision where every instrument should enter and exit and at what level of tonality and pitch in order to create what the composer of the music intended, much like what a mission and vision statement would be to an organization. John has been the MVP of every team I’ve witnessed him a part of, which is dozens and dozens over the 18 years I’ve known him. It’s John’s leadership that I directly attribute to the winning culture I’ve built inside three successful businesses. If you only have the ability to pick one person to lead your organization in a cultural change initiative or you're an organizational leader that needs some 1-on-1 mentoring, then John is your guy. Period."

She supervised several Customer Service Representatives and was very detailed and methodical in her training and support of their work.

Personally she was very pleasant to work with and was able to communicate effectively across all levels within the organization."

National President, Beta Sigma Psi Fraternity
Chicago, IL

"I highly recommend John Hatfield. I have known John for nearly 5 years as he began consulting on chapter development programming for Beta Sigma Psi National Lutheran Fraternity. John has been an outstanding partner and mentor not only to myself but other leaders in our organization. Aligning organizational activities with stated values is a core principal in leadership and John has been effective working with our young men to strengthen their groups by living out our values daily, thereby attracting better prospects to our fraternity and improving the collegiate experience the men build for themselves.

John has worked on recurring program development, most successful of which is our Leadership Summit which occurs every summer at Denver University’s field station outside of Mt. Evans. Our best young leaders from around the country gather to participate in the retreat which allows them to disconnect, challenge themselves physically, intellectually and emotionally thereby improving their ability to lead other and cultivate an environment of high ideals and purposeful living. I’ve most enjoyed John’s pedagogical technique of allowing the participant to reflect privately on a topic, embark on a challenging learning activity and conclude by sharing their new insights in a collective.

John’s delivery in a group setting is strong and he engages young men better than anyone I have observed in my career. In private conversations John is compassionate and calm and gives very sound advice from a non-judgmental perspective. In small teams that have been dysfunctional, John is able to quickly root out dissenting behavior and guide leaders toward committing to difficult decisions.
John is well equipped to handle adversity and challenging situations and drive changes in failing cultures. His teaching ability, empathetic relatability and strong integrity prepare him magnificently for consulting any company. I strongly endorse John."

He recruited, cast vision and implemented with genuine warmth and competence. "

As I had struggled with my newly created team, I often sought her advice and it worked! She brought some great workable solutions to the table. I once requested Angelique to lead a project independently and she completed from the beginning to the end with some great recommendations. She is a leader! I highly recommend Angelique for any project you have in business!"
stock-4Dane Stewart

"I have a story about John Hatfield. The skills and qualifications required in leadership are large in number and variety. No one is born a true leader. While they may have some of the abilities required for leadership, there are always areas in which a person can improve. For myself, I lacked in the ability to effectively trust and communicate with the people I worked with. Growing up, I was always the person that would take over group projects and do the majority of the work by myself.
So when I took over as recruitment chair, I approached it in the same manner. I failed, and the team failed, multiple times in a row, and I reached the point of frustration. When working with John in small group meetings or 1-on-1, the way that he approached the meeting forced me to openly communicate with him, as well as other members of the recruitment team. We talked through open scenarios dealing with parents and recruits, and how to approach different situations. Much like a marketing consultant or a salesman for a company would do when selling their product to a customer.
Having a mature conversation with a mentor who will be realistic with you was huge when I was put into a situation in the real world that was similar to a scenario we had talked through. This is where trust plays into the development process. I had to trust that the advice and information John was giving me would work, and I had to trust that my team under me would do the same. Once the communication had reached the appropriate level, and the trust within the team and with John had reached the right level, the team was unstoppable.
It wasn’t just about the team’s success though, my own leadership abilities had reached a new level. I go into situations with confidence in my communication abilities, and I trust that my peers will have my back, and I never would have done that before. These skills, taught to me by John, will continue to play a role in my development as a man, and for the rest of my life in my employment opportunities. "

It should go without saying that, and she is a remarkable leadership talent, with an eye for not only growing her traditional business, but also seeking out opportunities to help others in their businesses.

Angelique has always taken her role seriously and is passionate about her results. Beyond her passion on driving performance, Angelique is a natural mentor, and fights hard for her beliefs. She’s at her best in a group environment, and is consciously proactive at getting full involvement of all other team members to derive the best results possible. She has a very effective personal style, and will be looked to for continued executive leadership.

I have the deepest personal and professional respect for Angelique, and sincerely belief she will bring his unique energy, optimism, passion, and tireless creativity to you or your organization. She has my highest endorsement. "

"I have had the pleasure of knowing John Hatfield since my freshman year of college through his work as the leadership development head of Beta Sigma Psi national fraternity. From the first time I heard John talk address our group, I knew he had a true gift. That gift was inspiring others to truly be the best they could be. From my personal experience, John has helped tremendously in inspiring me to be the best I can be. He has taught me more about leadership through his discussions of personal experiences than any leadership book there is out there. He has pushed me to achieve, and helped me to become the president of my organization.

What separates John Hatfield from the average man is something that is hard to find these days; genuine passion. He is one of the most authentic people I have met in my life. To John, the relationship with the individual comes first and foremost. He is a man of passion, a man of character, and a man dedication. His ability to relate, understand, and inspire are what stand out to me when I think of John. It has been a pleasure working with a man who values integrity and making the most any and every situation. John is a man I hold in high regard."

stock-4Monica Strathman
House Director at Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity
Manhattan, KS

"It is my pleasure to recommend John Hatfield as an educator and developer of students particularly in the area of leadership development. John and I have worked together in multiple capacities since becoming colleagues in 2011. I first came to know John when he was hired as the assistant director of Kansas Campus Compact (KSCC), an organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the purpose of higher education in educating and developing responsible and engaged citizens. Kansas Campus Compact was hosted by the Kansas State University and embedded within the Staley School of Leadership Studies where I serve as the business manager. While he was the assistant director of KSCC, he was also a co-instructor for LEAD 350: Culture and Context, a course requirement for the leadership studies minor. Since then, I have had the good fortune of serving alongside John as the house director of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity (SAE) to which John is an alum and the chapter adviser.

John is extremely passionate about student and leadership development and I admire his ability to connect with students in a way that promotes trust and fosters learning. John sets high standards but because of the relationships he builds with students, they are eager to meet those standards. The men of SAE struggled for years which was reflected in many of the various aspects that make up Greek life including their collective GPA, regularly placing in the bottom third of all fraternities. But when John stepped in as the chapter adviser, he was able to guide the chapter through changes that addressed the fundamental issues causing low grades, among other things, to earning the fourth place spot.

Change is difficult especially cultural change. It requires patience, persistence, and keeping true to the higher standard. Because of the relationships John built with the leaders in the fraternity, he was able to utilize his talents to work with them in developing their leadership skills in order to generate buy-in of the fraternity's values and make the changes needed to meet their goals. I'm most impressed with John's many talents and the passion he has for the work he does. I have learned and continue to learn from John. Not only is he a valuable colleague, he is a good friend."

I cannot thank John enough for all he has done for me and the friendship we have made."

"I first met John Hatfield when I joined Beta Sigma Psi National Lutheran Fraternity at the Kansas State University chapter during my freshman year of undergraduate studies. John was the Leadership Director at the time. During my first year of associate membership of the fraternity before becoming a senior member, I routinely sought advice from John. As Leadership Director, John provided my fellow naïve fraternity members and I with much needed development in terms of leadership, balancing school and extracurricular activities, and emotional wellbeing.

A large part of the instruction we received was during special meetings our membership would have with John. He employed several tactics to help us become comfortable discussing our fraternity’s problems in a constructive and positive way. He taught us how to recruit new members by showing them exactly what Beta Sigma Psi stands for. He helped motivate our members to get involved on campus. He even helped us grieve- as a leader and a friend- when one of our members passed away.

As I progressed through my undergraduate years, I also progressed in my position in the fraternity. My junior year, I was elected president of the fraternity. Throughout my term as president, I met with John regularly to seek advice and council in motivating people. During one particularly difficult semester as president, I frequently harped on some advice John gave me: to quit trying to push my fellow members from behind to motivate them, and try leading from the front. “After all,” he said, “you can’t push a chain and expect it to go anywhere. You have to pull it.”

Since John joined Beta Sigma Psi as the Leadership Director, the Kansas State chapter alone has grown from 8 members to over 50, improved grades from the bottom handful of fraternities to the top third of all fraternities, expanded our social and philanthropic activities on and off campus, established a new scholarship through the K-State Foundation, won 3 Beta Sigma Psi National Fraternity awards, and helped re-establish a new fraternity chapter at the University of Kansas. His accomplishments at other chapters of our National Fraternity are just as impressive, and there is no way Beta Sigma Psi could be what it is today without John’s guidance."

"I agree with the other reviewers here. Angelique is an excellent coach. She has a lovely bubbly personality that really motivates you to want to reach your goals. I would definitely recommend her to push you to the next stage in your life or business goals."

"I have only been a business owner for 2 years. However, coming from a very different background as a retired airline pilot for 29 years, getting into the business world was a big change for me & my husband. Learning how to market ourselves, and generate leads, getting introduced to the business world, and getting out and actually following up with customers was huge for us and we needed a bit of help. We enrolled in a program and were assigned a wonderful coach, Angelique who was much younger than us, and when you are double nickels at this age and your starting a new career, it's interesting because you haven't picked up on all of the technology skills. Angelique was with us and held our hand for 12 weeks, we had a MAC, she had a PC, we had different challenges, and I thought sometimes "I don't even know what you are talking about", knew nothing about Facebook, and she walked us through everything. She was extremely patient with us, she held our hand, but she also held us accountable, to making sure we did the work we were needing to do and get the results that we needed.

So I highly encourage anyone to work with Angelique. She's an awesome coach, and she has done a lot for my husband and myself."

"Angelique is an amazing coach and business mentor!

"When I started working with Angelique, I was looking for support in launching my business. I had some early success, but things started to stagnate for me and I needed a fresh direction. I knew that the best way for me to leverage my time and help more people was to go online, but the process of marketing felt daunting.

Angelique was able to hold my hand throughout the entire process when I needed it and let me fly on my own when I felt comfortable. She helped me develop a plan and walked me through implementation of all of the technical and creative pieces including landing pages, sending out emails, and learning how to research, test and tweak marketing strategies.

Aside from this particular program, I have to admit that I am generally overwhelmed with online marketing. Angelique helped me prioritize where to focus my attention. I have been able to rely on her to help me with list building, managing my social media presence, building a social media presence, and how to make contact and follow up with prospects. What a relief that I don’t have to do this all on my own!

Simply put, I love working with Angelique."

"I strongly recommend Angelique Weiley Vuilleumier for any task that requires quick thinking, great organization skills, building a sustainable business, and a pleasant demeanor when working with people. I had the pleasure of being one of Angelique's mentee when she served as a coach and business leader for a business we were building. She juggled literally hundreds of accounts for several representatives, making their business easier and by extension, helping our team increase in sales. While working with Angelique, she implemented new ideas that resulted in a much smoother process from leads to sales.

Angelique was efficient and effective in her professional role as a leader and coach. Anyone who works directly with Angelique will see the results in expanding their business. Angelique is one of the best coaches out their and I'm grateful to have worked with her and I believe you will be grateful too.."
