Getting Ahead of Burnout
Many of your best people are on the verge of suffering professional burnout. They’ve stepped up the number of working hours, partially due to the new work-from-home environment, but mostly because they need to get more done with less.

In this presentation, Tim provides insights on what it takes to restore work-life integration in 2021. He’ll share the latest research as well as best practices from companies and wellness advisors.
You’ll learn how to:
Spot the early warning signs of burnout in individuals and groups.
Design workstreams to ensure load-management of key talents.
Leverage resources such as the work marketplace to offload tactical burdens.
Coach others to reduce stress and recharge energies while they work from home.
Innovating Faster - Why Collaboration Changes Everything
Leaders in every industry prioritize innovation but are frustrated with how long it takes to bring breakthroughs to market. According to bestselling author and consultant Tim Sanders, the best way to speed up the innovation process is to promote a culture of collaboration across your organization and externally with partners, customers and competimates.
Over his career, Tim has studied leaders that practice what he terms ‘disruptive collaboration,’ a problem-solving style that leverages surprising alliances along the fault lines of a company or its market. He’ll reveal how the biggest leaps and turnarounds in history came from collisions of thought, not safe work in our silos of excellence. Tim’s eye-opening keynote will deliver actionable insights and tools that will accelerate the rate of innovation, drive agility and quickly produce breakthrough business outcomes.

Tim kicked our annual meeting off on the perfect note. Not only was his presentation engaging, timely and high energy, but he took the time and effort to target his expertise on the issues and challenges specific to our audience. He genuinely wanted to understand our interests and relate to the audience in a way that added maximum value and impact. I would not hesitate to bring him back to a future event and/or recommend him to others.
We have been working on increasing our leaders' EQ for about a year now, and I watched dozens of YouTube videos, trying to find the right person for our culture, and Tim Sanders was absolutely the right choice! We got tremendously good feedback on his session and we are so glad he was able to take part in our event. His style and energy were a perfect match for us and his message really hit home for our team. Having him as our first keynote set the bar pretty high!
Tim's speech energized and inspired our company. I was impressed with how quickly Tim understood our culture, strategy and challenges. He developed a speech that was both insightful and impactful. Many of our employees said Tim was one of the best speakers they have heard.
What made Tim stand out amongst the sea of keynote speakers was his sincere interest in customizing his presentation to offer value to our audience. He went above and beyond to get to know our industry and ensure his keynote and the supporting resources he provided contributed to our mission of helping our attendees improve and grow their businesses.
At the reception immediately following our event I saw firsthand the value Tim's message offers as I witnessed several team members from different departments collaborating on innovative ideas we could use to improve our business offerings to our clients this was an afternoon that was well worthwhile and I would highly recommend it to others!
Tim knocked it out of the park on "The Art of Leading Remote Talent." Feedback was off the charts from our 100+ Supplier members. I had several companies comment on timeliness and importance of the content. COVID 19 forced many companies to transition to a remote workforce overnight. The workshop was timely, spot on and tools were immediately executable.
Tim's workshop caused us to rethink the way we currently manage our remote resources especially in the light of COVID -19, which has changed the work landscape drastically. Tim is undoubtedly one of the most engaging speakers we have come across and his research on the topic and sharing of insightful ideas /examples was much appreciated.
Hearing Tim Sanders speak is a game-changer for your business. He taught us about the value of building diverse teams and how important it is to build strong internal and external relationships long before these relationships are needed.
At showtime, Tim absolutely wowed the audience. His message of collaboration is relevant to every type of business professional and every type of industry. He will leave your audience utterly inspired and engaged.
