Defining Success at Work and Learning to Enjoy It

Tim Schurrer

Tim is the author of The Secret Society of Success and host of the Build a Winning Team podcast, where he challenges people to consider “helping others win” as the North Star for how they should live and lead.

He’s also the CEO of David Novak Leadership, a 501(c)(3) private operating foundation whose mission is to make the world a better place by developing better leaders at every stage of life. As the CEO of Yum! Brands (KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut), David Novak grew the business from $4 billion to $32 billion and he did it by creating a culture of recognition where every employee felt seen and valued for what they contributed. And now, these leadership lessons are being taught in companies and to students all over the world through the nonprofit David has entrusted Tim to lead.

Early in his career, Tim spent a decade launching two brands — StoryBrand and Business Made Simple — as COO alongside New York Times bestselling author Donald Miller. And before that, he worked at TOMS and Apple Inc.

Tim lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, Katie, and their two kids.

Redefining Success for Your Business

There’s a message getting a lot of airtime these days. It says to be successful, you have to step into the spotlight, climb the ladder, become the boss, or chase whatever version of success that’s been dangled in front of you.

But what if there’s another way? What if fame, money, and power aren’t all that we should be chasing?

In this keynote, Tim Schurrer invites you to reevaluate your definition of success and learn a new, freer way to go about achieving it. Through powerful stories of people like the CEO of Apple Tim Cook, NBA all-star LeBron James, founder of Thistle Farms Becca Stevens, and others you’ve never heard of, you will discover that the success you’re looking for is within your reach, wherever you are and whatever your role.

This keynote will teach you to
• define success for yourself;
• contribute to your team without minding who gets the credit;
• make an impact that spans far beyond yourself, regardless of the size of your platform;
• navigate living in the tension between contentment and striving;
• go from feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and restless in your job to being confident in the value you bring to the team; and
• discover meaning and fulfillment in the work that you do.
