Dan Philips

People First Master Coach

People First International Master Coach

In 1994 Dan Philips had the pleasure of meeting Jack Lannom after being a participant in one of his training programs.  A short time later, he joined Jack’s team as a trainer.  After 11 years and over 1,300 hours of training around the country, Dan is the Master Coach for the People First International’s Training Program.

Dan has been deeply involved with creating the People First Strategic Leadership Program and was fortunate enough to be personally involved with the research and writing of Untapped Potential and People First.  He is currently assisting Jack in writing a second book featuring the Sifo Li and Dan Burton characters titled The People First Effect.

An expert in discovering the needs of his clients, Dan conducts a two day “deep dive session” to fully understand his client’s needs and tailor the material to focus on the client’s greatest needs.

That tailoring process continues as Dan presents the 12 weeks of training process. IN constant contact with HR and Senior Executives Dan ensures the program is meeting his client’s needs and gathers feedback from participants in the training to share their stories and discuss their particular challenges in the workplace.

As the Master Coach for People First International®, Dan has conducted training programs for MiTek Industries (a Berkshire Hathaway company), Essex Industries, City Furniture, Fine Art Lamps, Miller and Solomon Construction, Pompano Hospital, Pro Player Stadium (now Sun Life Stadium), the Orange Bowl Committee, Cleveland Clinic, Jefferson Pilot Communications, Ensemble 4 Advertising, WCI Communities, Prudential Florida Realty (now Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Realty), Reliable Roofing, Palm Healthcare, Heritage Plumbing and Air Conditioning, and Mainscape.

MiTek has contracted with People First for fifth consecutive year. CEO Tom Manenti and VP of HR Bonnie Daniels insist that “Dan is the brand” when it comes to presenting People First Strategic Leadership to MiTek.
