Ken Tanner began his career scrubbing dishes in the back of a Pizza Hut, eventually becoming the youngest manager in that chain s history. What followed was a 20-year career in the hospitality industry that included management of hotels, owning a dinner theater, and serving as a regional vice president for two of the nation s biggest restaurant chains. This phase of his career featured dramatic customer-service turnarounds, record low employee turnover rates, and the development of dozens of industry leaders. Ken is especially proud of the number of women he helped advance into executive positions. Ken founded a human resources consulting firm in 1995. Initially focused on recruiting, Ken now uses his expertise to help companies build teamwork and retain employees. Ken is the author of five other business books on team-building and careers, including Recruiting Excellence and The Boomer s Career Survival Guide.
