Bill Jensen, Mr. Simplicity, makes it easier to do great work. He has spent the past 25 years studying how work gets done. (Much of what he’s found horrifies him.)
Bill is an internationally-acclaimed thought leader who is known for extremely useful content, and his passion for making it easier for everyone to work smarter, not harder.
His astonishing ability to blend efficiency and personal growth have yielded raves like this from the same session: “You saved my team over 1,000 hours this month!” … “Wow. Thank you for your giving heart. You inspired me to be courageous again and embrace my failures in a new way.”
His first book, Simplicity, was the Number 5 Leadership/ Management book on Amazon in 2000.
His most recent books — Disrupt! Think Epic, Be Epic and The Courage Within Us — reveal the secrets of success through big, bold ideas and by unleashing your own greatness. His next book will be The Future of Work.
He is CEO of The Jensen Group. Among his clients are Bank of America, Merck, Pfizer, GE, L’Oréal Italia, Genentech, NASA, The World Bank, BBC, Philips Lighting, the US Navy SEALS, Singapore Institute of Management, Guangzhou China Development District, and the Swedish Post Office.
Bill’s personal life fantasy is to bicycle around the globe via breweries.
Everybody is overloaded, and that’s not going to go away. Actually, it’s going to get worse. We need to learn how to quickly de-clutter any information and get better at staying focused, all while engaging the hearts, minds, and actions of others. Bill Jensen will cover all of that, and more, in this session. He will apply what he’s learned after studying simpler ways to work for the past three decades.
Leadership development — for ourselves and for our aspiring new talent — in today’s disruptive environment is hard! Every day, every priority seems to force us all into fire-fighting crises, leaving true development as an afterthought. This intensive session combines proven-in-action development techniques with a much deeper understanding of how disruptive change shapes all of us. Bill Jensen has masterfully integrated the Tyranna of the Urgent with how we develop ourselves for the future.
We are the frontline leaders of the future of work. If… If we chose to take on our role in being and developing tomorrow’s disruptive heroes. Bill Jensen has researched and coached thousands of leaders in our role in forging the new future of work. In this powerful, highly engaging session, Bill will lay out how he coaches leaders in developing future strong cultures, focused on innovation, as well as delivering quick-hit tips.
The biggest challenges you will face in a highly disruptive future of work do not come from ‘out there.’ They all revolve around your ability to disrupt yourself — to change, adapt, unlearn and learn anew — all while staying united and focused as a team. This session details the disruptions coming at you and details the separate dimensions of being future strong — always ready for whatever the future throws at you.
What are the habits of today’s best disruptive heroes? And what can all of us learn from them? This session will answer those questions, and lots more. Bill Jensen has studied hundreds of today’s top disruptors and change agents, and uncovered their secrets. Bill will detail the top five of twenty-five disruptive habits, and exactly how you can use those habits today.
