EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE KEYNOTE SPEAKER
If you’re looking for a keynote speaker to share academic theory and research, Krister is not your guy. Krister shares nuts and bolt behaviors that leaders can put into practice immediately after the keynote. And he inspires them to prioritize developing their emotional intelligence.
90% of top performers are also high in emotional intelligence. Leaders with higher emotional intelligence lead teams with higher employee engagement. And teams with higher employee engagement are 21% more productive than other teams, according to Forbes.
To unearth this unseen potential in our organizations, our teams and – ultimately – ourselves, it’s critical to develop our emotional intelligence.
The good news is that emotional intelligence can be learned. The bad news is that it’s not entirely clear how.
Prior to becoming a sought-after keynote speaker, Krister struggled personally to find practical tools to develop his own emotional intelligence. He is a former “bad boss” who transformed his own emotional intelligence and went to become an award-winning CEO of a global tech company. In this vulnerable and inspiring keynote, he shares the surprising techniques he used to develop his emotional intelligence.
As the world's first Leadership Archaeologist and professional keynote speaker, Krister shares secrets discovered on his global journey to leadership lands uncharted by traditional business media. He captivates audiences with tales of his perspective-shifting journey to uncover the leadership secrets that eluded him while he was growing a global company from a handful of people in St Louis to hundreds of employees in 8 countries, on 5 continents.
And it was on his journey digging in the far corners of the earth that he unearthed some of the most powerful leadership techniques you’ve never heard of… yet.
Krister creates leadership keynotes that incorporate emotional intelligence themes by hand-selecting the tools from Leadership Archaeologist’s Toolkit that will deliver the most ROI for your attendees. The Leadership Archaeologist’s Toolkit is a set of tools to help leaders inspire followership covering a wide-range of leadership topics, including employee engagement, emotional intelligence, servant leadership and the language of listening.
