People Don’t Leave Companies, They Leave Leadership!


There are numerous occasions throughout my life where I have found a co-worker, a colleague, a leader, and even myself, in need of a decision regarding our current choice of employment. We have all been there, we know what that feels like. Depending on the reason, maybe it was because of the money, or there was a life-altering event, or it was seasonal/temporary work. Chances are, 9 times out of 10, the prominent reason for why people leave or resign from a position is because of leadership.

Having been on both sides of the fence when someone resigns or changes their job, I know the different emotions of relief and befuddlement that as a manager/leader you can experience when your employees change or leave jobs. But over the years, the only true reason why I ever left any company, was for a better experience because of leadership. I never had problems finding a job with the money that I wanted, yet I bounced around because the leadership I was supposed to follow were building followers, not building and molding other leaders to come forth. I could never figure that out?

Why would my leadership not want me to become a leader like them and grow organically to help the company grow?

The following answer is not one that anyone should be proud of, nor one to look to. There have been multiple empires that have come and gone, some not too long ago, yet if you look at them today, you will see rubble, memories faded, all because of poor leadership. In regards to why my leadership didn’t want me to grow, it is because they didn’t want to create competition, they didn’t want to improve the systems, they only wanted followers to sit and stay to ensure the leader’s paycheck every 2 weeks.

Think about it, if all the employees in a company truly wanted to excel and succeed and be trained to be leaders, any company would grow exponentially if the right leadership was in place. Yet, if poor leadership is in place, 90-day employer reviews will continually be daily re-occurrence. Even strong leaders will not stick around with poor leaders, Tom Searcy w/ stated, “Poorly led leaders will choose one of two doors–they will leave or they will become weaker in order to survive”. This has been a transparent leadership failure throughout the ages of the world, yet most of the people in this world aren’t and won’t become leaders, because no one wants to teach us, our system is flawed! The leadership skills that we are taught in today’s economy are not those of abundance where more is better, they would rather continue have the masses follow for their own greed and selfish purpose than to truly help and train and replicate leaders.

The harsh reality of it all, is we have to realize this in our own situation, to have the courage to step out to build your leadership skills of what we know as “the norm” to do something where our loved ones will mock us, yet when we succeed, there is nothing more joyful than helping others do the same!

We are a Movement.

I’m WUN OUTLAW aka,Tyler Howell. My story is one that has been heard before. I grew up in a hard working family, I was the oldest of the four brothers, my parents own a few restaurants/businesses, so naturally I became their best employee. I grew up in restaurants my most life so I know the restaurant industry, from the kitchen to the bar to running and operating franchises. In 2008 I graduated fom Westminster College, Utah, with a Bachelors in Marketing, it was the model that I was taught to do just like everyone else, go to school, get good grades, get a degree so you can get a good job… Guess what? I still made more money working in restaurants, than with the piece of paper that said, “I was smarter now, so pay me more!”. The harsh reality set in, we all felt how bad the economy was in 2008, when I went to interview for marketing positions, I found myself competing against my mentors, with 20+ years of experience. I didn’t stand a chance against them. All my life, I grew up around entrepreneurs, I saw how they lived, I saw how my family lived. I knew from the beginning that even though the “go to school, get good grades to get a good job” model was what I was taught, it was not what I believed in. I know that being an entrepreneur isn’t easy, but it’s very rewarding if you are good at it! Long story short, at the end of the day, I wanted to make more money! Up until that point in my life, my research and experience proved that neither the corporate or restaurant industry could pay me what I truly dreamt of. Throughout the years, I’ve been in Real Estate, including lending and real estate investing. I had my share of direct sales, commission-only sales, etc. trying to find the industry that was going to pay me what I truly desired. I played around in Network Marketing for a few months, but never took it seriously like my other ventures, up until February 2013. In February, two fairly new friends came over to my house and shared with me a company’s vision of empowering every single household in America to obtain an extra $500 a month. When I learned about this Movement, I decided to join WakeUpNow and never looked back. Over the course of the past 12 months, we soon realized we had found a huge need for online tools/platforms to market WakeUpNow to and run a profitable online business with WakeUpNow. The Founders of WakeUpNow, Richard Smith, Jon Holbrook, Dale Gibson, and Troy Mulstein and our team came together and formed SystemWUN to provide marketing/training tools for individuals, households, and small businesses to be successful in WakeUpNow. We have developed and proven this model to be successful time, and time again. We have created the most revolutionary online business strategy providing the best financial & marketing tools available in business to start your own small business, home-based business, or online business.
