Leading Speaker on the Strengths Movement
UNLOCKING THE STRENGTHS OF ALL YOUR EMPLOYEES
Executives often give lip-service to the “our employees are our greatest asset” mantra. But do they really value people—or deep down do they view them as a liability to be replaced with robots and AI as soon as possible?
Only 25% of American workers say they have the opportunity to do what they do best every day. This means that your greatest asset is likely being severely underutilized, leading to both lack of engagement and opportunity cost for the organization as a whole.
SPARKING A STRENGTHS MOVEMENT IN YOUR ORGANIZATION
A full two-thirds of American workers say they are disengaged at work. We’ve all seen what that looks like: glazed eyes, gaunt exhaustion written across the face. Work is a hated grind, and so even the most basic day-to-day work tasks can feel that they require almost insurmountable effort. Because of this, disengaged employees put in the bare minimum of effort required to get a paycheck.
USING STRENGTHS TO SUPPORT DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Many business and community leaders are calling for more action on Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace. Bias negatively impacts economic opportunity and personal development for many in the workplace, as well as in education.
In this keynote, you will see data and examples that suggest we can successfully confront bias with tools from positive psychology such as strengths assessments, strengths-based conversations with managers and employees, and individual and team coaching interventions.
It is possible to build workplace cultures that identify, develop, utilize, and celebrate the innate talents of every individual, regardless of background.
A LIFE OF BOOKS IN AN AGE OF DISTRACTION
In our modern, technological world, where the near entirety of libraries like those in Cambridge and Oxford are digitized and available online, it is a sad but truthful irony that the same technology has allowed comparatively meaningless and mindless distractions to seep into our everyday lives. We are accustomed to budgeting our money, but do we also budget our Intellectual Capital?
