THE BLUEPRINT TO CONSCIOUS LEADERSHIP |
HOW TO ROCK RESULTS AND BE A WILDLY POSITIVE INFLUENCE

Leadership is so critical these days, and leaders are getting a bad rap from employees: 82% of employees believe that their leaders are ineffective, 67% are disengaged from their leaders, and 35% are willing to give up a pay raise just to see their boss get fired! In a world where leadership is a game-changer we need to be the kind of leaders that deeply engage because they are bold, curious, and kind – they are conscious leaders.

This keynote gets to the heart of satisfying your employee’s deep desire for meaningful work, meaningful impact, and meaningful relationships; for enabling them to increase profits AND improve their community. Leaders that matter know how to meet these expectations and ensure that the enhanced trust and productivity yields customer satisfaction.

This keynote is an applied strategy for leaders to become resilient, influential, and thoughtful. Eric shares proven and practical steps for leaders to reflect and decide how to engage and empower their people with wisdom, Love, and Courage.

The Blueprint for Conscious Leadership teaches leaders how to:

  • Limit the role that your ego plays in leading
  • Guide teams to focus on profit, people, and the planet
  • Generate breakthrough team results
  • Empower people with a “distributed consciousness” mindset
  • Learn how to apply kindness AND accountability

THE POWER TO SHOW UP |
HOW TO SWITCH ON COURAGE AND CONQUER THE WORK THAT MATTERS MOST

This keynote defines a path to being inspired, inspiring, and courageous in projects, with coworkers, and with customers. Courage is the first leadership virtue because it is the secret sauce for bold decisions, innovative breakthroughs, challenging status quo, facing rejection, and making deep connections.   

 Your fundamental job as a leader is to organize and influence people to move away from the comfort zone and toward a new vision and to new achievements; this always ignites both excitement and anxiety because achievement and safety simply don’t go hand in hand.  

In this keynote, Eric teaches why, how, and when to turn on your leadership courage; specifically, he shows you how to cultivate the courage to Care, the courage to Speak Up, and the courage to Commit.

This keynote guides leaders at any level to be more courageous and effective on projects, with coworkers, and with customers. Specifically, in this program audiences will be able to:

  • Identify exactly where they need to apply a new level of courage
  • Turn on courage to commit, courage to speak up, and courage to care
  • Step toward their full potential more quickly and consistently
  • Develop tools for being courageous in the moment and over a lifetime

TEAMWORK WITHOUT TANTRUMS |
GETTING LEADERS TO STICK TOGETHER, DECIDE TOGETHER, AND MAKE STUFF HAPPEN

Never confuse a team of leaders with a leadership team! A team of leaders doesn’t share one vision, works in multiple directions, and fights one another rather than the competition. A leadership team, on the other hand, is focused on the unified vision, works collaboratively, and transcends silos.

This keynote is for leaders that want their leadership teams to realize it’s full potential. Eric Kaufmann has dissected thousands of hours of teamwork and teaches how leadership teams can stop burning precious time, energy, and goodwill.

Eric reveals the three poisons of leadership team effectiveness: 1) drag – misinformed disagreement, 2) drift – lack of vision, and 3) friction – internal conflict. He then offers clear and focused instructions for becoming a leadership team that accelerate results by creating flow, alignment, and cohesion.

This keynote is a deep dive into:

  • Understanding why every team throws tantrums
  • Applying a process for uncovering team dysfunctions
  • Accelerating the ability to significantly increase trust in the team
  • Creating a leadership presence that inspires team alignment
