helping organizations develop their most important asset − their people.
In 2017, FranklinCovey launched The Wall Street Journal
Better: 15 Proven Practices to Build Effective Relationships at Work,
authored by FranklinCovey Chief People Officer Todd
Davis. In conjunction with the launch, FranklinCovey created an
interactive work session featuring key principles and content from the
book on behalf of FranklinCovey employees, who participated in the
session facilitated by Davis. It was the book, its content and the work
session that were the impetus for a nomination and an award for
FranklinCovey by HR.com as a LEAD 2018 Top Leadership Partner.
For the past 35 years, the LEAD Awards, formerly known as Leadership
Excellence Awards, have identified and recognized the top leadership

yearly ranking. This year's award winners were published in HR.com’s Leadership
Excellence Essentials e-publication. Future issues of the Leadership
Excellence publication will also feature interviews from select top
award winners in each category. These interviews will outline each
program's unique qualities that made it a LEAD Awards winner.
“We express our appreciation to HR.com for this award. It is a real
honor to be recognized as a 2018 Top Leadership Partner,” said Bob
Whitman, FranklinCovey CEO. “Our competitive advantage has always
been our unique, world-renowned content and performance improvement

upon Todd’s 30-plus years of experience in talent development, his
exemplary leadership, and his deep knowledge and understanding of how to
