There’s a seismic shift happening in business which Dr. John Izzo calls The Purpose Revolution, a radical desire for work to be about more than money and for our buying, employment, and loyalty connecting to a desire for meaning and social good. Those companies and leaders who respond to these expectations are engaging both employees and customers, creating fierce loyalty.

John Izzo helps clients understand the emerging keys to employee and customer engagement while leaving your team with ideas they can put into practice right away to grow your brand and win, motivate and keep the best talent.

Dr. John Izzo has spent the last 25 years mapping the face of this change, inspiring organizations and leaders to embrace the mindset that creates and attracts purposeful, driven employees and can win the emerging values-driven customer.. Businesses that fail to recognize these trends are doomed. Not just by lackluster teams, but by their inability to connect to the purpose behind the modern consumer's purchasing decisions.

With clients including IBM, McDonald's, Coca-Cola, QANTAS and Microsoft, Dr. John Izzo understands what creates a sense of purpose for modern teams and consumers in a way few can match. A bestselling author of eight books and researcher, Dr. John Izzo has spoken to over a million people in audiences worldwide and worked with over 500 of the world's leading organizations.

Using captivating, well-researched storytelling combined with practical advice, Dr. John Izzo helps leaders and teams to join the purpose revolution - paving the way to highly engaged teams and superlative levels of customer loyalty.

This new driver is present worldwide and cuts across almost all demographic barriers including age, developing/developing world, politics, religious affiliation and income level.

Leading on Purpose

Inspiring 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.

Your leaders at all levels will see:

  • WHY purpose matters
  • How to drive the WHY on a daily basis in your organizations
  • Daily and weekly practices that create a culture of purpose that leads to high productivity and great service

 

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?

In this keynote, John shares:

  • The four keys to creating high engagement teams and shows why some leaders are consistently able to get high levels of commitment from people
  • John gives your leaders daily practices for how leaders can immediately drive engagement for better results
  • How to implement simple disciplines and routines guaranteed to create highly engaged teams
  • Your leaders will not only see their role in driving engagement but will leave with ideas they can implement right away that will lead to significantly higher engagement

 

!00% Responsibility / Zero Excuses

How Taking Responsibility Changes Everything

Taking responsibility means stepping up and seeing yourself as the agent of change, whether it is changing your company or changing the world.

Dr. John Izzo shows how “stepping up” creates positive change while improving satisfaction at work and in life. Dr. Izzo’s simple concept, called “100/0” (100% responsibility/zero excuses) can transform a company when we decide to put aside our excuses and take initiative to create change.

This session can be focused on all levels to foster greater ownership or focused on leaders where he also helps leaders discover how to foster a climate of ownership and accountability.

Dr. Izzo will share:

  • How a small group of employees got together and transformed service and morale at a large hospital
  • How a leader took a dying business unit within a large Telco and got employees to step up creating a “cash cow” for her company
  • How a new VP helped drivers take responsibility for the profitability of their individual routes taking his division from worst to first
  • How three women with no business experience helped thousands of women get out of poverty in Africa
