About Express Pros Training

Fuel Your Employees’ Drive

The Modern Management Program is a systematic approach to leadership and management training.

We use proven techniques and principles, from broad concepts to a targeted focus on specific areas of knowledge, everything necessary to help emerging leaders develop the skills they need to be vital, successful managers.

Unleash the potential in your organization by investing in the resources your employees need to become better managers and more effective leaders.

We had team culture issues, mainly due to everyone miscommunicating with each other. Cohesive team building and communication is what we took away. My team has grown since the training just from the effectiveness of understanding others.

We’ve developed a multi-tiered approach to leadership and management development.

This gives an organization the flexibility to choose the right solutions for its team.

  • A range of resources have been crafted to address specific needs across the entire organization or to help groups with broad training.
  • Choose select skillsets from a spectrum of concepts, running from fundamentals and foundations to a cutting-edge curriculum.
  • Completely Customizable
  • Comprehensive or Laser-Focused


One of the biggest challenges facing companies today is capturing its employees’ potential and unleashing it for success – it rises and falls on leadership.

  • Help managers develop the necessary skills to surmount obstacles and seize opportunities as equipped, effective team leaders.
  • Employ Modern Management’s tailored approach to respond to today’s challenges and to prepare for tomorrow’s by empowering employees.
  • Utilize all the tools managers need – and more.
  • Trust in training that adapts to diverse sectors.


Success-focused executives don’t always have the bandwidth to personally motivate and mentor emerging leaders and high-potential employees themselves.

  • Modern Management offers an extensive inventory of topics and approaches to help individual organizations address their unique hurdles.
  • Cultivating managers includes helping them develop the insight to know what to do and how to get it done for their specific organization, team, and project.
  • Invest in employees and reduce turnover.
  • Boost productivity in a culture that excels.

Embrace proven methods and success through expert coaching and consulting from an objective, experienced trainer. Whether the organization needs strategic insights to make a whole department run smoothly or focused attention on problem areas and opportunities for growth, get a tailored strategy to help every manager – new or existing, struggling or top performing – reach their full potential and exceed it.

Invest in the Modern Management Program for success.

Kevin Johnson - Partner/Executive Trainer

Kevin Johnson, MBA


Kevin Johnson is the founder of  LeadTandem Management Consulting.  His focus is on helping individuals and teams perform at a high level. What motivated him every day during the 13 years that he was an executive in the healthcare industry was the satisfaction of helping people move past roadblocks to maximize their strengths. Potential shouldn’t be wasted when there’s momentum and progress waiting on the other side.

The cohorts he built, managed, and led had amazing tenure at his company and within his industry. Few competitors saw the same degree of success, but his achievement wasn’t a unique situation. Even though every business and its dynamics are different, the principles for success are the same. The key is piecing together the right ones at the right time.

As a result:

  • The vision and goals of the CEO and C-Suite are met.
  • A company has a healthy work culture of satisfied, loyal employees while maintaining sound business operations.
  • Tension and stress are transformed into positive forces of motivation and productivity.

Those are the frontline experiences that still fuel not only his work with businesses, but also his work as a business professor and while serving on the Business Advisory Committee for a local college.

As a result, his clients have access to the literature, the theories, and the constructive concepts that are out there.

Kenny Lange

Kenny Lange

Executive Trainer

Kenny grew up with an entrepreneurial father and mother and absorbed that spirit early in life. While in middle school, he would have his mother make an extra lunch that he would sell almost every day for vending machine money.

As a professional he discovered a love for helping leaders because he saw they often were expected to help others AND themselves. This led to a passion to learn as much as he could about what great leadership looks like and eventually led him to start his own company at 27. After multiple years, he sold his company to a larger enterprise and stayed around to help them go fully remote for the first time, expand their employment globally, and grow their revenue by almost double in 2 years during COVID. 

His passion is helping leaders to be better and gain clarity in a safe space as they chase their goals and discover who they were created to be. His focus is on creating leadership and organizational transformation that teams actually buy into in order to build a people-first and high-performance culture.
