The Secret: What All Great Leaders Know and Do

One question many leaders need answered: “What is the secret of great leaders?” Mark’s answer? Great leaders serve. If you feel preoccupied with the future, are worried about the people on your team ultimately determining your success or failure, or you’re worried about your leadership credibility, there is a reason for that. In this talk, Mark will reveal five habits that underlie leadership character and that determine a leader’s success – and teach leaders how to develop these habits. You’ll walk away knowing the secret to great leadership.

Leaders Made Here: Building a Leadership Culture

The most important attribute high-performing organizations have in common is that they are well led. Every organization dreams of having enough leaders. Yet too many organizations take a haphazard or inconsistent approach to leadership development. The result is a dearth of leaders and a failure to leverage the full capacity of the enterprise.

In this talk, Mark will unpack how any organization can create a culture in which leaders are routinely and systematically developed, resulting in a surplus of leaders. He even details how to nurture leaders throughout the organization, from the front lines to the executive ranks. He provides a game plan for organizations to build a culture of leadership that results in a deep leadership bench.

Self Leadership: How Great Leaders Grow

Successful leaders don’t rest on their laurels because leadership is not a title on a business card. Leadership is a living process—and life means growth. Many of us are challenged to lead others, but how are we leading ourselves down a path of personal growth? In this talk, Mark shows leaders and aspiring leaders precisely which areas to focus on so they can remain effective throughout their lives. Whether you’re a CEO or an entry-level employee, you’ll leave inspired to reflect on your life and design your own long-term growth plan—a plan that can lead not only to continuing professional success but to personal fulfillment as well.

Scale Your Impact with SMART Leadership

Escape the mediocrity that ensnares so many in business and become a better, more effective leader. Have you ever wondered what it would take to scale your impact, be a better leader, or make a bigger difference in the world? The answer lies in the choices you make: about everything from how you spend your time to the way you view the world.

In this talk, Mark shares the four research-based “SMART choices” the best leaders make to scale their influence and results. By teaching you how to confront reality, grow capacity, fuel curiosity, and create change, Mark will help you and your team: bring fresh eyes and fresh thinking to your leadership approach; increase your confidence in your ability to make a difference; lead at levels you never thought possible; and accelerate your learning curve so that all these benefits come faster and more naturally.

The Secret: What Great Teams Know and Do

Most think that in order to improve team dynamics, you must focus on such things as getting clear about team purpose and team member roles, not the importance of creating a sense of community in a team. However, Mark’s research has proven that in order to have a high-performing team it may look different than you think. The core message is that Talent, Skills, and Community are all essential to team success, and that team leaders and leaders supervising or training team leaders, need to develop all three in order to create such teams. But how? In this talk, Mark offers concrete suggestions for building teams where people know each other deeply, serve each other willingly, and genuinely care for each other.

Win the Heart: How to Create a Culture of Full Engagement

Every great company has an engaged workforce, and nurturing a culture of engagement is at the heart of effective leadership. Employees who really care about their work, their coworkers, and the organization can supercharge a company’s success. But for many years, engagement has been suffering. Gallop reports that 70 percent of employees are not fully engaged on the job. In this talk, Mark draws on more than 40 years of leadership experience to teach leaders at all levels how to change the conversation and create real competitive advantage in the process. Improving engagement unleashes untapped potential in all employees. An engaged workforce is more creative, more driven, and more enthusiastic about reaching company goals. After this talk, your people will never look at work, or their leaders, the same way again.

Talent Magnet: How to Attract and Keep the Best People

There is a long-standing truth in the world of organizations: talent wins. But how do you attract the best people? What do they really want? In this talk, Mark will explore his extensive research on how top performers are looking for very different things than solid contributors. Regardless of industry or title, all top performers want the same three things out of a job. You’ll walk away having identified these three critical aspects of a true talent magnet. Finally the curtain is pulled back on what leaders can do to find and retain the very best people – a strategic need every leader faces.

Make Culture Your Competitive Advantage

After completing a global study with over 5,000 participants from ten countries, Mark exposed the most predominant culture fissures and their fixes. This talk will showcase leaders and organizations who are building strong, enduring cultures and make the case for why leaders should invest their time and energy on building culture. If you want to stay in the game and win, there are simple, actionable rules you must play by. After learning these rules and their accompanying best practices your leaders will be enabled to: clarify and communicate the organization’s cultural aspirations, reinforce the aspiration through their daily activities, and maintain relevance and vitality by constantly enhancing their culture. When leaders’ actions become more strategic and productive they give their organization a huge gift—a place where untapped potential is released and transformed into performance.

Win Every Day: Overcome Execution Obstacles

Great ideas don’t matter if you can’t execute. All high performance organizations have one thing in common: Execution. In this talk, Mark offers a proven, research-based method for creating workplaces where everyone performs at the highest level. Mark put the research-based methods to the test with over seventy businesses employing over 7,000 people. He came out of it with proven tools to release the untapped potential in your people, create a strong competitive advantage, and win not just on game day but every day.
