The Secrets of Highly Engaging Workplaces and Leaders

Dr. John Izzo has spent a lifetime researching what separates truly passionate, high-engagement teams and leaders from the rest of the pack. Organizations with high levels of employee engagement are significantly more profitable, have much higher customer loyalty, stronger productivity and a better reputation with customers than those with moderate engagement. In fact, the average HIGHLY engaged team member can be up to 40% more productive than a disengaged performer. But what are the secrets to highly engaged teams and highly engaged companies? Why do some leaders consistently create highly engaged associates?

Stepping Up: Becoming an Agent of Change

This inspiring talk shows what happens when individuals decide to be “agents of change” in both work and society. Pushing beyond limits requires each one of us to step up and be even stronger agents of change in our workplaces, communities and personal lives. Based on his bestselling book, Stepping Up—How Taking Responsibility Changes Everything, Dr. Izzo will challenge each one of to see ourselves as people of influence. Through engaging stories of individuals and groups that created change in business and society, he will help us understand why some people push the limits of their influence and how we can grow ours. He will also show the power of personal responsibility in our personal lives and careers.

Leading on Purpose: Winning People With the "Why"

If you really want your people to be engaged and bring their best to work then you need to make sure they have a deep sense of purpose. Research shows that people who see the purpose of their work are more productive, work longer hours and are more engaged. We also know that when people feel inspired by the purpose of your company or organization they are more deeply committed, more willing to change, and serve customers more powerfully.

Dr. John Izzo first introduced the idea of higher purpose at work in his book, Awakening Corporate Soul, and has been showing leaders for over 20 years how to create a workplace where people are connected to the highest purpose of their work. In this engaging keynote, John not only shows why purpose is so critical but provides audiences proven methods to drive purpose and the “why” with their teams.

The Purpose Revolution: Winning the Emerging Customer, Employee & Investor

The new economy is going to be driven by an emerging group of people all over the world who want their employment, investing and buying to shape a better world while meeting their self oriented needs. This book shows how a new driver of choice is happening worldwide whereby consumers, employees and investors are using purpose and community as a major driver of their commitments. This new driver is present worldwide and cuts across almost all demographic barriers including age, developing/developing world, politics, religious affiliation and income level. Those companies who understand and respond to this Aspirational person will create game changing competitive advantage. Rather than thinking of this person as a consumer, employee or investor we need to begin to realize this is the same person and we need to attract them on all three fronts at once. This new person wants to shop, loves brands, is often active on social media and loves to share stories. They want to consume but want “consumption without conflict” where they feel they are helping society, planet and themselves. Winning this new rising class of people who want good for self, good for people and good for planet alongside a sense of community/tribe is a spot of true differentiation. These people want doing well and doing good to sit side by side as they live their lives. They simply want it all and if you can give it you will succeed.
