EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT KEYNOTE SPEAKER
If you’re looking for an employee engagement keynote speaker who will preach platitudes about pizza parties and ping pong tables, Krister is not your guy.
As a keynote speaker, Krister speaks about employee engagement where the rubber meets the road – improving the interactions between people, peers and leaders within a company.
As the world's first Leadership Archaeologist, Krister’s keynotes highlight stories of his adventures to leadership lands yet undiscovered by traditional business media. He spins a tale of a perspective-shifting journey to uncover the leadership secrets that eluded him while he was the award-winning CEO of a global tech company that grew 3,000% - from a handful of people to hundreds of employees in 8 countries, on 5 continents.
Krister’s keynotes teach audiences to be better peers and better bosses, while inspiring employees at all levels – that is, leaders and non-leaders – to take responsibility for their own engagement level and hold people accountable for stopping the behaviors that destroy the engagement of those around them.
If he’s speaking to audiences that are primarily leaders, Krister focuses on the #1 key to increasing employee engagement - building better bosses. He teaches a set of practical leadership and emotional intelligence tools that every leader can immediately implement to increase employee engagement within their teams. Why? Because managers account for 70% of the variance in employee engagement, according to a 2014 Harvard Business Review article.
Before becoming a top rated employee engagement keynote speaker, Krister experienced firsthand the difference between bad leaders and good ones – because he’s been both himself. Krister shares his inspiring personal leadership transformation from “difficult boss” to CEO of a global event technology company that won 5 consecutive Top Workplace Awards.
Krister creates employee engagement keynotes personalized to your audience’s needs 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.
