Adrian Gostick Speaking Topics

  • Carrots 2.0: How today’s managers use recognition to engage their people, retain talent, and accelerate performance With Chester Elton

    The Dilemma: Most managers want to create cultures where their teams achieve above-and-beyond results, but for a culture to really take off teammates must encourage each other on a daily basis. The answer is in rooting for each other: having each other’s backs, appreciating strengths, and recognizing strategic behaviors.

    The Research: Based his #1 bestselling book The Carrot Principle, which unveiled a 10-year, 200,000- person survey, Elton has become the preeminent authority on employee recognition. Now, he introduces us to Carrots 2.0—showing incontrovertible evidence that today’s employees respond best when they are recognized for things they are good at and for those actions where they had to stretch.

    The Result: Elton introduces audiences to new generational and industry-specific data from his 2016 proprietary survey of 14,000 working adults—helping managers link recognition to what is most meaningful to their employees. He introduces practical concepts that help managers encourage excellence, including ideas such as appreciation vs. recognition, effort vs. achievement, and praise vs. rewards. Chester shows how great managers lead with carrots, not sticks and in doing so achieve higher: ?Productivity ?Engagement ?Retention ?Customer Satisfaction The Audience: Designed for managers, Chester Elton has presented “Carrots 2.0” to corporate audiences and associations worldwide. The session is typically customized to an organization’s specific recognition needs and can also include the organization’s available R&R tools.

  • All In - How Great Leaders Develop a Culture of Belief and Deliver Big Results

    The Dilemma: While most leaders understand their most reliable competitive advantage comes from their people, few know how to get their teams “all in”—convincing employees to buy into the strategy they’ve put forward. If a culture is clear, positive, and strong, then people will believe what they do matters and that they can make a difference. If a culture is dysfunctional—chaotic, combative or indifferent—employees will spend more time thinking about why the people sitting next to them should be fired than getting fired up themselves.

    The Research: Teaming up with research giant Towers Watson, #1 bestselling author Chester Elton presents the findings of an unprecedented 300,000-person study conducted in the worst of the recession for his book All In. Based on this breakthrough research and his extensive consulting experience with a who’s-who of successful organizations, he presents a simple roadmap that all managers can follow to create a high-achieving culture in their own teams where employees are engaged, enabled and energized.

    The Result: Elton offers specific how-tos for each step, and tells fascinating stories of leaders in action that vividly depict just how these powerful methods can be implemented. Audiences will learn: ?the 3 research-based characteristics of the world’s most profitable, productive organizational and team cultures; ?the 7 steps today’s most successful leaders use to generate buy-in; ?how managers at any level can build a productive workgroup culture of their own where employees commit to the culture and give an extra pushof effort.

    The Audience: Designed for senior leaders and managers (although sometimes tailored to include all employees), Chester Elton has presented “All In” to corporate audiences and association conferences worldwide. The session is typically customized to an organization’s specific culture challenges.

  • The Best TEAM Wins: The 5 Disciplines of Today’s Most Effective Team Leaders

    The Dilemma. The vast majority of employees’ days are now spent working collaboratively, but still 96 percent of executives cite poor teamwork as the main source of workplace failures in their organizations. It might be the most-pressing question organizations must address: How can managers lead their teams to improved performance given the volatility and challenges we face today. The Research. Based on an 850,000-person study of the most profitable, innovative work teams, New York Times bestselling author Chester Elton introduces his audiences to the new science of teamwork—helping leaders deal with the increased speed of change in business, global and remote employees, the rise of the Millennials, the need to work more cross-functionally across departments, and more.

    The Result. Elton’s research has discovered a set of leadership disciplines that make the biggest difference in building today’s best teams. He helps leaders: ?Manage to the One—Identify the drivers of each team member for maximum engagement ?Speed Productivity—Help new people and teams work faster & smarter ?Challenge Everything—Inspire greater innovation through healthy debate ?Focus on Customers—Build bridges across functions, cultures, and distance.

    The Audience. Designed for senior leaders and managers (although often tailored to include all employees), Chester Elton has presented The Best Team Wins to corporate audiences and association conferences worldwide. ?Extremely engaging and motivating talk! Most importantly, you tailored the content perfectly to ensure it was relevant to our fast-paced and forever-changing needs.

  • Employee Engagement: The Deep Dive (Done with Chester Elton)

    • The Dilemma: 90% of senior leaders believe employee engagement is a key driver of business performance, but only 24% think their employees are engaged enough to move their businesses forward.
    • The Research: New York Times bestselling authors Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton are founding partners of The Conference Board’s Engagement Institute, and have unprecedented access to meta-data on engagement that includes hundreds of thousands of employees in some the world’s highest performing organizations.
    • The Result: : In a fresh, humorous and thought-provoking keynote, Gostick & Elton can show exactly how real leaders move the needle on employee engagement. The authors drill deep with case studies and practical examples of known drivers of engagement such as open & honest communication, people development and recognition.
    • The Audience: Designed for managers and senior leaders, the authors have presented “Employee Engagement: The Deep Dive” to many corporate audiences as a follow-up to their All In presentation on Culture. The session is typically customized to an organization’s specific engagement needs.

  • What Motivates Me: Put Your Passions to Work

    After surveying more than 850,000 people, New York Times best-selling authors Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton have found the key difference between employees who are most energized and productive at work is whether or not their work aligns with what motivates them.

    In the What Motivates Me keynote, the New York Times best-selling authors of The Carrot Principle and All In offer an extensively tested method for leaders to identify their employees’ unique blend of core motivators and then help them align just a little more of their work with what drives them—creating huge boons in productivity and engagement.

    In a fresh and wildly thought-provoking keynote presentation, audiences will learn:

    -A step-by-step method to help identify employees’ particular blend of core motivators.

    -A process to figure out the disconnect that may exist between employees’ passions and their current work situation.

    -60 simple but powerful job-sculpting strategies to help people “accomplish more” and “avoid blind spots.”

    More than half of workers surveyed say they are unhappy in their jobs. The ideas the authors present have been vetted with their consulting clients from American Express to Procter & Gamble to AT&T, and are shown to increase levels of employee motivation, engagement, and productivity. This is a vital message for leadership teams, employee groups, or association audiences.
