Author of eight books (and counting!), Tracey C. Jones is the president of Tremendous Leadership.
Tracey C. Jones is nationally known for her leadership expertise, as well as her ability to connect on a core level with her audiences . With her signature wit, she masterfully weaves leadership concepts and actionable strategies together with humor and a deep understanding of life in the workplace. Her latest book, A Message to Millennials: What Your Parents Didn’t Teach You and Your Employer Needs You to Know delivers just that blend of professional development strategies and real-world solidarity. Perfect for mentoring, onboarding or developing new personnel, this is a timeless resource that will appeal to employees across generational divides.
At the core of her philosophy on leadership is a simple belief that a commitment to lifelong learning results in a resilience and positive attitude that can alter the work environment for the better each and every day. With nearly four decades of experience across four industries from the military to semi-conductor to publishing, Tracey has crafted organizational leadership techniques that can be implemented right away for noticeable results. She challenges her audiences to bravely embrace their challenges and take the all-important next steps toward effecting meaningful change in their personal and professional lives.
As a graduate of the Air Force Academy with twelve years as an officer in the United States Air Force, Tracey’s storied career in uniform took her from Roswell, New Mexico to the Gulf War to stations in Germany and England, where she honed her operational expertise and tremendous leadership skills in a number of command roles. As a civilian, she built an impressive career as a corporate “fixer” over ten years with industry leaders such as Applied Materials and Northrup Grumman, as well as a stint as a Project Manager with the National Security Agency (NSA). A believer in the value of lifelong learning, Tracey holds an MBA in Global Management and is pursuing a Philosophy of Leadership doctoral degree.
Her father, the late Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, founded Executive Books in 1965 with the goal of changing the world one book at a time. After amassing an exceptional leadership background of her own, Tracey took the company’s reins in 2009 – and carries on her father’s tremendous legacy today. She believes that philanthropy and community engagement are at the heart of leadership.
