Triggers: Becoming the Person that We Want to Be
What keeps us from becoming the person that we want to be? Why are our New Year’s resolutions forgotten by February? Why is employee engagement near an all-time low? Dr. Marshall Goldsmith is a world authority in helping successful leaders achieve positive, lasting change in behavior: for themselves, their people and their teams. In this fast-paced, interactive keynote, Dr. Goldsmith will explain why we so often don’t become the person that we want to be. He will then share several structured approaches to managing our lives (at home and work) that have been proven to result in positive behavioral change. Marshall will also share a completely new approach to employee engagement that teaches employees how to engage themselves. Finally, Dr. Goldsmith will describe his breakthrough work with Alan Mulally, (the former CEO of Ford and CEO of the Year in the US) and show how a disciplined change process can not only impact individuals and teams, but also an entire organization.
MOJO: How to Get It, How to Keep It, and How to Get It Back If You Lose It
“Mojo” is the feeling we get when we’re moving forward, making progress, achieving goals, clearing hurdles, passing the competition—and doing so with increasing ease. Based on his newest book, Marshall Goldsmith discusses the new world of work and shows why mojo is more important than ever before. Goldsmith will reveal how our mojo is impacted by identity, achievement, reputation, and acceptance. By the end of the session, participants will be able to define mojo, measure it, and keep mojo by letting go of the little stuff, avoiding pointless arguments at work, and steering clear of mojo-killers. Free applications will be available to help participants experience more happiness and meaning at work and at home.
