The Emerging Future: Building Future-Ready Organizations and High-Performing Cultures to Compete and Win in The Decade Ahead
As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, leaders prepare to face an unrelenting and continuously shifting landscape of change and transformation. Of course, change has always been a reality for the modern-day leader but today it knows no boundaries, no borders, and no breaks. The impact of this can be felt as individuals fatigue under the weight of extreme ambiguity.
From ever-evolving go-to-market strategies and expanding customer expectations to an emerging list of new future-ready competencies and new ways of working, today’s leaders are seeking certainty about the future and the confidence to trust themselves to rise to the occasion and meet the moment with influence and impact.
Rooted in the research and bolstered by time advising high performers in the field, Seth Mattison will help prepare leadership teams to meet the decade ahead with confidence, clarity, and conviction.

The Heart of Business: The Secret and the Science to Influencing and Leading During Times of Transformation
Leadership has always been about one thing: influence. To effectively manage transformation today, leaders must have the understanding and the skill to not only connect with the rational and logical aspects of people’s brains but also have the capacity to reach their hearts in order to understand what ultimately drives human behavior at the deepest level.
As traditional hierarchies are re-examined and leadership becomes less about title, tenure, and time at the organization and more about influence, impact, and connection to their heart, our ability to develop, cultivate, and grow our personal presence and own our capacity to reveal our full selves every single day will become the new mandate for leadership in the modern era.
In this highly interactive deep-dive discussion, Seth will shed light on these questions and add a new perspective to the conversation of leadership today by dissecting the most critical skills and competencies leaders will need to acquire in order to elevate their impact on the teams they’re supporting, the organizations they’re leading, and the communities they live in.
The Human Connection: Harnessing the Power of Belonging to Activate High Performance and Organizational Resiliency
In a world of uncertainty, ambiguity, change, and transformation, leaders today face a stark reality to compete, grow, and scale the business. And while technology supports this evolution, people make it a reality. Specifically, individuals that feel a deep sense of connection and commitment to themselves, their work, and the eco-systems that support them.
What’s possible when environments are created where talent feels safe enough to be free and supported enough to truly belong? When these elements begin to align and experiences unfold, an expansive and abundant future takes shape.
Backed by a decade of research on high-performance cultures, the neuroscience of change, and real-world applications from category-leading brands navigating transformation, this program will unpack one of the most important talent trends of the next decade to help leaders motivate, inspire and drive synergy across teams and organizational structures.
Leading High-Performance Virtual Teams: Strategies for Succeeding with a Remote Workforce
As we enter a new era of digital work, leaders are faced with the challenge of reengineering their organizations for a mobile-first culture in order to drive business performance and maintain cultural cohesiveness from afar. Shepherding a virtual future will be the mandate for the modern leader.
When teams are dispersed and isolated from each other, new systems, processes, skills, and competencies will be required to effectively adapt and evolve to these new environments. The challenges of isolation, social distancing and working from home will give leaders a unique opportunity to create compelling new digital remote work environments that are engaging, participatory, and full of the human connection we deeply value.
In this program, Seth Mattison will unpack the opportunities our new virtual environment presents along with research, case studies, and best practices for what leaders and managers can do today to effectively support and lead a remote workforce and mobile-first future.

“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.”
