TALK SHIFTs: Simple Communication Tools to Cultivate Candor, Connection, and ALL-IN Commitment
What if the most basic things you’ve been taught about leadership turned out to be not only ineffective but destructive? It turns out, the forceful, world-changing leaders of the past succeeded greatly despite their approach, not because of it. We assumed that what works for once-in-a-lifetime leaders like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates was the best way to lead, but no one asked, “Is there something even better?” 

From their shadows has emerged a new breed of leader— leaders who are using Talk SHIFTs to drive remarkable levels of employee engagement and business growth. 

How did an unconventional leader create nearly one trillion dollars of shareholder value in six years — using compassion rather than ambition? 

In this inspiring and practical talk, proven global CEO, leadership language expert, and author Krister Ungerböck reveals Talk SHIFTs — a simple, yet powerful new leadership communication model that sprang from a surprising source.

Best for: Audiences that include both leaders and non-leaders; employee all-hands events; association meetings; customer events
