Heart-Led Leadership

Based on New York Times, Wall Street Journal & Amazon bestselling book, The Heart-Led Leader

18 Inches is the distance from your head to your heart. Such a short distance, yet most leaders never take the journey. Leaders and organizations that lead with their hearts are more successful and achieve better results than those that don't. In Tommy’s keynote he shows that love and results are not opposites, they are two sides of the same coin. It is not love or results - it is love-driven results. If you love what you do, if you love the people you do it with, if you love your culture, if you love your mission, if you love your team, if you love your customers- you will achieve better results.

Heart-led leadership transcends numbers and spreadsheets. It is more sustainable and more rewarding. During this keynote, Tommy teaches that defining your leadership philosophy is one of the most important steps you can take as a leader and as an organization and for your life. Being a Heart-Led leader will change your life and your organization. New York Times best-selling author Tommy Spaulding, one of America’s greatest storytellers, will share stories and leadership lessons of heart-led leaders that inspire audiences to live and lead differently. 

Return on Relationships

Based on New York Times, Wall Street Journal & USA Today bestselling book, It’s Not Just Who You Know

Tommy Spaulding inspires audiences and teaches them how to achieve unprecedented professional and personal success by forming deeper, more authentic relationships with customers, employees, clients, and other key stakeholders.

Tommy’s career has been built on valuable and authentic relationships.More than a networking expert, Tommy has led international organizations and forged bonds with leaders that are far more than “business card”deep.

While tough economists talk only of return on investment (ROI). Tammy contends that “return on relationships,” or ROR, is the currency we should focus on rather than solely ROI. By focusing on building meaningful relationships, bottom line goals can be achieved. Spalding demonstrates how investing unselfishly in the lives of others is the most important thing we can do for ourselves and our organizations.

As a leading entrepreneur, Spaulding has the keen ability to relate each of his experiences and teaching topics to meeting and event participants.Tommy teaches your audience how to break the transactional nature of the business and build an organizational culture that’s based on authentic relationships.
