 Her talks include:

Bankable Leadership: Happy People, Bottom Line Results and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Summary: In today’s competitive business environment, leadership is as difficult as it is important. Even though research tells us that effective leaders balance people and results, this complicated balancing act is easier said than done. In the quest to create happy  employees and drive bottom-line results, most leaders feel more comfortable doing one than the other—choosing either a “Cool Parent” or “Trail of Dead Bodies” approach. And whether they know it or not, this imbalance drastically limits their success. In this entertaining keynote based on her New York Times best-selling book, Dr. T will help you master the balance. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can  help almost anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment. At the end of the session, you’ll understand your personal preferences as a leader, what skills you’ll need to sharpen, and leave with a plan to improve immediately.

Optional “How To” Tools: For keynotes of 90 minutes or more: Building trust, setting clear expectations, fostering transparency, showing compassion, treating adults like adults, supporting without hand-holding, bringing out employees’ best, entitlement-free appreciation, no-fear feedback, change leadership, building focus to build results, and employee engagement.

Becoming a Generational Genius: Why Most Generational Problems are Leadership Problems in Disguise

Ideal Audiences: Boomer, Gen Xer, and Millennial managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members; anyone who is struggling generational issues at work.

Summary: For centuries, people have been lamenting the foibles of younger generations. And for organizational leaders, generational conflict seems inevitable. In this informative talk based on her own scientific research, Dr. T reveals why most generational problems are really leadership problems in disguise. Are Millennials more self-centered than other generations? Is work less important to them? Does rampant generational conflict really exist? Audiences will learn the myths and realities of generational differences, what the real problems actually are, and how effective leadership can heal most generational ailments. They will leave with a clear understanding of their own generational beliefs, actionable tips to lead across generations, a specific plan to improve inter-generational harmony.

Bankable Leadership Strategy: The Secret Weapon to Accelerating Business Success

Summary: Good leaders create economic value—and poor leaders can  sink companies. To advance their business strategy, companies must have  the right leaders in the right place at the right time. But this is easier said than done. Although most CEOs believe that developing leaders is critically important, few believe they’re doing it well. In this interactive and action-packed talk, Dr. T will give you the keys to her kingdom. She’ll review a practical process to build a Bankable Leadership Strategy that accelerates your business goals. Audience members will leave with practical tools to help their leaders attract, engage, develop and retain top talent, as well as a Leadership Strategy Assessment to take home to continue their learning.

Bankable Leadership for Technical Leaders: Happy People, Technical Excellence and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal audiences: Technical leaders—from the front line to the C-suite—in professions such as engineering, science, information technology, finance, accounting, and medicine.

Summary: The professions of engineering, science, technology and finance are full of highly-competent, meticulously trained experts—who study for decades to get where they are. The best among  them often become leaders. But with precious little training and a “sink or swim” mentality from their organizations, many hit a wall for the first time in their careers. They quickly learn that the skills to be an effective leader are different from the skills that got them where they are (people aren’t quite as predictable as computers, atoms, or balance sheets!).  Dr. T understands this conundrum— over the last decade, she’s transformed hundreds of technical leaders. Participants will learn a scientifically-based, nuts- and-bolts process to “hack the code” of leadership. This isn’t a “woo woo” or “pie in the sky” leadership talk—audiences will leave with practical insights, specific tools, and a plan to improve immediately.

Bankable Leadership for Healthcare Leaders: Happy Clinicians, Quality Outcomes, and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal audiences: Physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, clinicians, and healthcare professionals who are directly or indirectly responsible for providing patient care  in settings like hospitals, physician offices, or health systems; associations or organizations with clinical leaders.

Outcomes: In recent years, there’s been  a seismic shift in the U.S. health care  industry. Patients have  taken charge: they’re informed, focused on outcomes, and demanding value for their money. Healthcare leaders must help their organizations respond to this new  reality. To do this, they must balance many competing behaviors: collaborating with employees and holding them accountable; treating employees like humans and ensuring consistent results; creating a supportive environment and driving continuous improvement. These complex demands leave many scratching their heads. After working with healthcare leaders for years (including an internal role in a hospital), Dr. T has the prescription: Bankable Leadership. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can  help healthcare leaders achieve happy  people while delivering high-quality, efficient care.  You’ll learn your preferences as a leader, a model for effective healthcare leadership and a plan to improve starting today.

Bankable Leadership for Education Leaders: Happy Teachers, Quality Education, and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Summary: In the world of education, expectations are elevated, resources are scarce, and leaders are facing unprecedented challenges. To succeed, they must balance many competing priorities: implementing mandated reforms and getting buy-in from teachers, students and parents; demanding accountability from teachers and sustaining morale; creating a performance-based environment and a collaborative culture. Education leaders who can’t rise to meet these challenges will feel stressed, ineffective, or overwhelmed. Luckily, Dr. T’s fresh, science-based approach can  help almost anyone become a more effective leader. In this session, you’ll understand your preferences as a leader, learn a simple framework for effective education leadership, and make a plan to improve starting today.
Employee Engagement

From Indifferent to Involved: How Bankable Leaders Boost Employee Engagement

Ideal audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, entrepreneurs, emerging leaders, association members.

Summary: According to research on employee engagement, for every  engaged employee, there are two actively disengaged ones. This statistic strikes fear  in managers’ hearts—and rightfully so. While engaged employees are productive, positive, and committed, disengaged employees are absent, pessimistic, and entitled. It’s no wonder  that stock prices of companies with disengaged employees lag their competitors by almost 5 to 1. So, what creates disengaged employees? Very often, it’s the very choices and behaviors of the managers themselves! In this entertaining yet pragmatic talk, Dr. T will reveal three common  mistakes managers make that unintentionally disengage employees— and what Bankable Leaders do instead. You’ll leave a clear understanding of the science behind employee engagement and a few powerful tools to improve it.
