Called the “Apostle of appreciation” by the Globe and Mail, Canada’s largest newspaper, and “creative and refreshing‚” by the New York Times, Chester Elton is co-author of several successful leadership books. All In, The Carrot Principle and What Motivates Me have been New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestsellers. His work has been called a “must read for modern managers,” by Larry King of CNN.

Elton's books have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold more than a million copies worldwide. As a motivation expert, Chester has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Fast Company and the New York Times, and has appeared on NBC’s Today Show, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, National Public Radio and CBS’s 60 Minutes. And if you Google the 30 top leadership gurus of 2013, you’ll find Chester Elton at number 12, right after John Baldoni and just ahead of Jim Collins.

Chester Elton serves as a leadership consultant to firms such as American Express, Avis Budget Group and Cigna. He is most proud, however, to be the father of four exceptional children—all the more exceptional now they have grown up and left home.

What Motivates Me

After surveying more than 850,000 people, New York Times bestselling 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 bestselling 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.

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

In this interactive and engaging session based on the New York Times bestselling business book “All In”—which includes research from more than 300,000 people in high-performance organizations—Adrian Gostick will teach leaders how to Engage, Enable and Energize their workforces. The formula of E+E+E outlines how high-performance organizations deliver extraordinary results by creating a vibrant, productive culture where people believe that what they do matters and that they can make a difference.

In this presentation, Adrian will relate fascinating stories of leaders in action that vividly depict just how these powerful methods can be implemented. Audiences will learn:

  • The 3 characteristics of the world’s most profitable, productive organizational and team cultures. 
  • The 7 steps today’s most successful managers 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 that extra push of effort.

 Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton have been touring the world helping organizations dive deep on employee engagement

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
