Hanes shared the stage with world-renowned figures Astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Lt. Gen Russel Honore. The event was part of the Leadership Speakers Academy, an event that brings cutting edge leadership innovation to entrepreneurs and other thought leaders.
Hanes is founder and CEO of The Authority Syndicate Group a multi-media and book publishing company that has guided over 700 best-selling authors to position themselves as leaders and experts in their field. T. Allen has broken the code for creating best-selling authors. He travels and speaks to aspiring writers throughout the country to unleash the inner leader.
Hanes credits his 28 years of leadership experience in the US Navy for the skills he now uses to help his clients launch their careers. “The potential for greatness is inside everyone,” Hanes said in a recent interview, “the Navy taught me how to find that potential inside of a person and bring it to the surface where they can see if for themselves and own it. That’s what makes extraordinary sailors and it makes exceptional thought leaders. They see it, they believe it, and they achieve it.”
Hanes went on to say, “What I have learned over the years is that Leaders will always emerge and rise to the occasion. Leaders go big on the critical and ignore the trivial. This trait is what separates the Buzz Aldrin and Russel Honores of the world. These legends answered the call of duty and stepped up one by being the first man to walk on the moon and the other take command during a time of natural disaster, both showing decisiveness.”
Lt. General Honore added “The next wars will be about water, not oil. From global and domestic terrorist threats to natural disasters, we encounter new risks to our individual, community, and economic security each day. We will need to leverage technology to deal with 7 to 10 Million people it’s not an option we must do it. Imagine a plane landing at LaGuardia and the computer tells the pilot that the passenger in seat 22 has a fever. None of this is invented, and we have to live up to our ability to be innovators and dreamers.”
Col. and Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, an American engineer and a former astronaut is working on his next mission. As the Lunar Module Pilot on Apollo 11, he was one of the first two humans to land on the Moon, and the second person to walk on it spoke about going big on his mission to Mars. He commented, “In my opinion, there is no more convincing way to demonstrate American leadership for the remainder of this century than to commit to a permanent presence on Mars, going to Mars without setting up a colony — launching only round-trip manned missions is not enough, nor would establishing human outposts on the moon.”
After publishing his critically acclaimed book ‘BOLD’ Helping, You Unleash the Hero Within, with the #1 Motivational speaker in the world Les Brown, Hanes used what he had learned about the process of positioning oneself and founded The Authority Syndicate Group to help emerging thought leaders. His latest best-seller, The Authority Code, is an effort to reach out to tomorrow’s leaders and assist them to take their place on the stages of the world using a system that builds a sustainable business. “Thought leaders, the people at the front of the room, tend to get caught up in their message.” Hanes explains, “They are so busy creating change and making a difference, which they don’t realize they are also creating a business that requires attention. This book gives them a step by step formula in a systems code for making that business run smoothly and generate a profit. We want our thought leaders to be profitable, to be able to support their families, because otherwise, they will have to get off the stage and get jobs. Their leadership will disappear, and that would be a shame.”
In addition to developing leaders through The Authority Syndicate, Hanes serves as a director of the Public Speakers Association to help strengthen the economy, culture, environment and leadership of communities nationwide. His affinity for veterans has led to the creation of special programs designed to help them get the recognition they deserve through publishing and media.
His media career includes more than his published works; Hanes has been featured on CBS, CNN, NBC, FOX, and ABC. He is a frequent contributor to Business Innovators magazine, Small Business Trend Setters magazine, LinkedIn Pulse, Medium, and Huffington Post. Additionally, he has been featured in Forbes and USA Today and is a radio host of the T. Allen Hanes Radio Show on the Business Innovators Radio Network.
