Keynote

The keynote can be delivered in a variety of timeframes, from 60 minutes to two hours. Wharton Professor Stew Friedman has delivered this keynote nationally and internationally to non-profits, government agencies, and multi-national corporations with audience members ranging from the C-suite to the front line. See client list.

Stew brings passion and practical ideas for action to his highly engaging keynotes. With his worldwide experience as a successful leader of change in organizations for three decades — he’s an accomplished executive, award-winning educator, widely-cited researcher, sought-after consultant, high-impact coach, and dynamic speaker — he knows how to help people in organizations produce sustainable results.

Now more than ever, a leader’s success isn’t just about being a great businessperson. You have to be a great person, performing well in all domains of your life — work, home, community, and self… and that’s a tall order. Based on his best-selling, award-winning book, this is the challenge that Stew will put before your group; how to achieve greater performance by finding mutual value among all life domains.

This dynamic, interactive experience begins with an overview of Total Leadership — how to achieve four-way wins — and focuses on three principles:

Be real — acting with authenticity by clarifying what’s important
Be whole — acting with integrity by respecting the whole person
Be innovative — acting with creativity by experimenting what how things get done

Participants assess satisfaction and performance in all four domains and the alignment of their actions with their values. They explore what it means to lead with impact in all domains and leave with a game plan and scorecard for an experiment designed to produce a four-way win, along with a peer coach devoted to supporting their progress.

As a result of this keynote participants will:
  • Learn how to reframe the idea of business leadership by applying new skills and insights at work, at home, in the community, and within the self
  • Learn how to transform the way you allocate your attention, skills and resources by identifying your core values
  • Learn new strategies for engaging others in the process of change
