For future focused organizations to succeed in the age of the networks, a bold approach to leadership is needed. An approach where freedom, trust, and experimentation are not only embraced but encouraged.
Unfortunately while our advancement in technology has equipped us to navigate the disruptive waters of change, our leadership ethos has not. Today, many of our organizations still operate from a 19th Century industrial age management mindset that undervalues unconventional thinking, discourages full transparency, deters initiative, frustrates experimentation, and allows people to play small.
Seth will provide a road map for anticipating the strategic challenges that demand fundamentally new thinking. Inspire leaders to break free from obsolete mental models that limit success. And help leaders build tomorrow’s best practices today tp compete and win in the new networked world of work.

“Seth was amazing and found a way to energize and connect with our audience. The information and delivery was inspiring and the comments from the attendees was awesome. Seth kicked off our event in the right manner.”
“All went well. Seth’s message was well received and the group thoroughly enjoyed his presentation. The idea that is he a millennial talking about his own generation in relation to others provides a unique first hand perspective that resonates with the audience. We’d use him again if the opportunity came up.”
“Do it! We have used Seth multiple times and he’s always professional and accommodating, all while being a genuine pleasure to work with.”
“You have probably heard speakers on the topic of generational differences in the workplace, but Seth Mattison is by far the best. His presentation ‘Rocking the Workplace: Managing and Leading the Four Generations’ skips over all the negative and annoying stereotypes (‘millennials have no loyalty, no work ethic’) and gets the audience fired up about the idea of getting along with four—soon to be five—generations at once. His presentation is fun and funny, energetic, and totally relatable. He manages to engage every member of the audience, which in most cases will span every generation, in an affectionate and endearing way.”
“Seth was the top rated keynote speaker at NCA’s 2013 State of the Industry Conference. He was utterly amazing, everyone in attendance couldn’t stop talking about him for days! He is a super star, over the top with knowledge, expertise, energy, creativity and brilliant speaking skills. He interviewed several of our attendees in advance and then customized his speech which really made it a home run. Seth made our conference a tremendous success and any organization that hires him to speak is certain to take their event to an entirely new level.”
“Seth did a fantastic job keynoting for us at our FMI Supply Chain Conference. He was spot on with all aspects of his presentation and his “prep work” on the front end set it all up. He was one of the most prepared and engaged speakers I have ever worked with. I am not surprised this has translated into increased momentum. I hope you’re getting all the engagements you can handle.”
