Awesomely Simple

Taken directly from the core ideas of John’s book, this speech deals with the six critical strategies for building and sustaining a highly successful organization. Full of stories, anecdotes and lots of real-world application, this speech will help attendees clearly understand what they must focus on to take their business to the next level and keep it moving forward. This speech is appropriate for anyone who manages or leads a team, department, division or an entire organization.

Creating A Winning Culture

One of John’s most popular speeches, this program takes an in-depth look at what is required to build the kind of corporate culture that attracts, retains and grows truly outstanding employees. Based on the Great Places to Work study and the Firms of Endearment study, this speech touches on issues such as: communication, teamwork, motivation, accountability and delivering superior customer service.

The New Normal
Dealing Effectively With Change

Anytime there is economic or organizational turmoil and your employees are faced with significant change, it is absolutely critical to help people understand how to effectively embrace change and move forward proactively towards the “new normal.” This speech deals with the emotional cycle that people move through as they struggle with change and outlines specifically what must be done to create an organization that can deal successfully with change.

Managing Millennials

For the first time in history, five generations are working side by side. But whether this multi-generational workplace feels happy, engaged and productive or misunderstood and antagonistic, is in large part, up to the leader. How should you manage employees of different age groups? What motivates each of these different generations? What specifically motivates the fastest growing segment of the workforce, the Millennial? What can you or your management team do to help them work effectively together, share knowledge and ideas, foster an engaged and collaborative culture, create strong work units while delivering the required business results? Whether focusing on the millennial generation’s attitudes, value systems and what motivates them or integrating all generations into cohesive teams, this information-intensive workshop or keynote will provide the specific skills and tools to help you successfully lead and manage across this incredibly diverse workforce.
