The future of work may look wildly different depending on industry, size, and location but the
one thing all great leaders do is build a deep sense of trust, respect, and safety across their team.
The question is: how do they do it?

In this completely tailored, engaging, and takeaway-loaded presentation, workplace expert
Eric Termuende shares what years of research, stories, and insights uncover about the one-degree
shifts leaders use to remove friction, improve communication, and innovate. From Domino’s Pizza to the British Cycling Team, discover how the consistent application of small, incremental changes builds tomorrow’s greatest places to work.

In this presentation, leaders will learn the secret of a one-degree shift to:

  • Reduce friction and build trust
  • Work more effectively with a smaller team
  • Build a culture of innovation
  • Understand your role in creating a ‘greatest place to work’
  • Discover what cilantro teaches us about strong workplace culture

Having studied some of the world’s best companies and surveyed thousands of employees,
workplace expert and bestselling author Eric Termuende knows that those who lead remote
teams do three things effectively: They communicate well, reduce friction, and are highly
empathetic. With the world changing at a break-neck pace, there are key steps we can take
today to ensure that we’re mitigating burnout and getting the most out of our teams whether
working remotely or together in the office.

In this fully customized, insightful, and takeaway-filled keynote, Eric Termuende shares leadership stories from the Cleveland Browns to Chicago’s Holy Cross Hospital to uncover what makes for an incredible workplace experience. Building stronger remote teams requires a deeper understanding of how we use our time, connect with our people, and tie recognition back to our values. While the future is anything but certain, the actions we take today are sure to prepare us for whatever the world throws our way.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to build a deeper sense of trust with your remote team
  • The three golden rules of recognition
  • Where a stronger foundation of belonging resides and how to access it
  • The research-backed correlation between recognition and engagement
  • How leaders can take ownership of company culture remotely

300 people on 100 teams with 7 days to get from London to Berlin. The catch? No communication with anyone outside your team, no currency or credit cards, no pre-arranged accommodation and no pre-arranged transportation – only 24 cans of RedBull. Would we make it? And what would it teach us about leading and cultivating an incredible team?

In this highly entertaining, always surprising keynote, hear from Eric Termuende as he takes you on his harrowing escapade across Europe. Learn how his team overcame new languages, new modes of transportation, and navigated their way across an unfamiliar continent before crossing the finish line and completing the journey of a lifetime.

Leadership and team development doesn’t just happen in the office. A remarkable story with unforgettable lessons may be exactly what your leaders need to be energized, engaged, and equipped with a new set of tools to lead their team.

In this highly engaging, interactive presentation, you’ll learn:

  • How to reduce friction across your team
    What the difference between forced innovation and chosen innovation is and how to execute
    Why choosing the road less travelled is more effective than the highway
    How empathy, trust, and experimentation breed success
    How to empower the team to rise to any challenge
    Why failure almost always leads to success
    And finally, how to travel 2,013 miles across a continent you’ve never been to before without
    anything to trade other than a few cans of a caffeinated sugar drink
