My Most Requested Topics

Depending on your needs, here are four of my most requested speaking engagements (can work for anywhere from 10 to thousands of individuals):

1) Secrets to Maximizing Employee Engagement and Performance in Minutes (Plus Attendees Play Cards Against Mundanity in Small Groups to Experience Why This All Works – Click to see the game/process)

Think about the best team you’ve ever been on. The team that was the most cohesive, cooperative, deeply connected, and productive. Maybe it was a job, a sports team, club, startup, an event you were apart of, etc.

How did it feel to be connected to something bigger, to sort of lose yourself in that moment? That feeling you just thought of is…THE…most…powerful…business…asset…on…earth.

It’s what separates the top 1% of organizations from all the rest. It’s what gets employees to work at their peak level every single day. It’s what allows organizations to create game-changing products, services, programs and experiences.

Leaders struggle and stay awake at night trying to figure out how to create that feeling for every employee, team and across the organization. Very few of them ever figure it out. When they do, it takes at minimum five to ten years to 

Unfortunately, many leaders believe that building high performing and innovative teams are like your DNA – you either have it or not. THAT’S NOT TRUE AT ALL. It’s not luck nor an accident.

It’s backed by science and intentionally developed and prioritized by leaders. Business leaders can learn how to “dial in” to the right behaviors and to put every employee in a peak state of performance and engagement.

The secret to building the highest performing and most innovative teams is building a foundation based on core four principles (psychological safety, vulnerability, truth-telling and operationalized values).

Research overwhelming supports this premise:

  • Harvard found over a 10-year study of 200 organizations that ones with a strong culture increased net income by 756% versus ones without it only increased by 1%.
  • Sales increased by 19% for the most engaged teams versus -17% for the least engaged.
  • Increase individual performance by 200% by using specific engagement strategies.

After spending three years interviewing more than a thousand individuals, including leaders and teams in Fortune and Forbes Top 10 Workplaces, I’ve discovered specific strategies and activities any organization can do to quickly significantly increase bottom-line metrics, communication, collaboration, innovation, problem-solving, engagement and employee retention.

I’ll also share more than 10+ specific best practice strategies the top 1% managers/leaders use to manage others (in every direction), provide actionable feedback, motivate others and promote collaboration. You’ll be able to put these to work immediately.

Together, we’ll demystify team performance, innovation and engagement and show you how to operationalize it so you can spread it across any size team organization, any industry, and externally with 3rd parties such as clients, prospects, partners, etc.

We’ll also play my breakthrough team building game, Cards Against Mundanity, which allows every attendee (leaders, managers and employees) to experience why these strategies and tactics will work for them. In minutes they create the same-level of trust of the top 1% teams (which normally takes a decade or more). It’s “the secret sauce.”

More than 10,000 employees have played the game including organizations such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft, PRSA, Oracle, Ernst & Young, Southwest Airlines, Gillette, Worldwide Express, SHRM, Utility Concierge, Phillips May, AA-ISP, and many others. 

After the presentation, individuals, teams and organizations increase trust, engagement, and closeness by 20%+. That translates into double-digit increases in performance, teamwork, communication, problem-solving and innovation.

Here’s What Attendees Gain:

  • Learn the “secret” strategies to quickly maximize performance, engagement, collaboration, and problem-solving.
  • Discover how to build high levels of trust both internally and externally with third-parties (such as clients, prospects, etc.) to instantly create great working relationships and maximize productivity

  • Walk away with best practices on how to manage, interact and engage (up, down and across) much more effectively to maximize teamwork and reduce conflicts.

Bob Perkins | AA-ISP | Founder & Chairman: 

“People loved Cards Against Mundanity. Great keynote.

Thanks again for speaking at the event.”

2) How to Build the Highest Performing and Most Innovative Teams

I use a different version for teams with many of the same concepts. We also play Cards Against Mundanity in small groups.

3) How to Eliminate Your Crippling Leadership Blind Spots

The single biggest predictor of your success is a combination of your self-awareness and emotional intelligence. The challenge is only 10% to 15% of leaders are self-aware, but 95% of them believe they are. The managers and leaders that need the most help either don’t seek it out or resist the training and help. Their blind spots end up significantly negatively impacting performance, collaboration, retention and bottom line metrics.

The key to create quick meaningful behavioral change and get to buy-in is that their unconscious patterns are sabotaging their success. Behavioral change is about pattern recognition much more than skill development. For example, a leader may be a poor listener because they grew up in a household of six children where talking over others got them heard. They may have had to shout at the dinner table for mom and dad to hear them, listen, and give them what they wanted.

We’ll cover together:

  • Why self-awareness and emotional intelligence matters in the workplace and why prioritizing it in training and development is critical
  • Why people get and stay stuck in negative patterns that derail them
  • Specific activities and tips to make quick behavioral changes

4) How to Develop Authentic Influence & Persuasion to Increase Leadership and Management Effectiveness

I share the key steps to allow any person to go from ordinary to extraordinary as a leader in your organization or business. When you can leverage influence and persuasion effectively, you create situations where everyone wins because you can build trust, rapport, and likability at a lightning speed.

I share 12 specific best practices with scripts and action items. Every attendees gets a copy of them with additional materials so they can put the information into action the same day.
