Van Hooser’s latest book, “Leaders Ought To Know: 11 Ground Rules for Common Sense Leadership,” is a handbook for leaders feeling the pressure to perform. A member of the Speaker Hall of Fame, Van Hooser has been named a “Top 5 Leadership Speaker” by Speakers Platform.

Most recently, he has developed a comprehensive leadership training program, Leaders Ought to Know, which incorporates online and onsite leadership training to transform and sustain leadership growth.
