Unleash Innovation and Connect the Silos

“The bigger the challenge, the wider you need to spin your collaborative web!” That’s the pivotal perspective of best-selling author, tech industry veteran and acclaimed collaboration expert Tim Sanders. His key insight: Innovation starts with the motivation to think outside of the box, but only comes to life when you courageously work across the lines of your organization.

During his tenure as a senior executive and Board member, Sanders has studied leaders that practice what he terms ‘disruptive collaboration,’a problem-solving style that leverages surprising alliances along the fault-lines of a company. He’ll reveal how the biggest leaps and turnarounds in history came from collisions of thought, not safe work in our silos of excellence. Tim’s eye-opening keynote will deliver actionable insights and tools that will unleash innovation, drive agility and quickly produce breakthrough business outcomes.

How To Win Business & Influence People

The most powerful force in business isn’t greed or brute force – it’s love for our customers, colleagues and partners. We show it by sharing our knowledge, our network of relationships and our compassion. When we develop a culture that emphasizes promotion of everyone’s success, stronger relationships are built and loyalty soars – delivering measurable business results.

This keynote offers new ways to mentor, connect people that should meet and approach leadership and customer service from a design point of view. Perfect for opening general sessions where knowledge sharing and networking is emphasized.

The Final Frontier Of Leadership Development

In a business world where disruption is a constant and competition is fierce, emotional intelligence (EQ) is just as important to a leader’s success as on-the-job experience and education (IQ). As leaders invest time sharpening their EQ to become more resilient and relationship oriented, they develop what bestselling author Tim Sanders calls Emotional Talent. Developing our emotional talent expands our influence, bringing out the best in others. Best of all, it’s an area where leaders can make great strides with a committed effort. “It’s all about dialing into the emotional side of any situation, then proceeding with generosity.”

He’s traveled the world delivering conference keynotes and training programs to leading companies, universities and government agencies, giving leaders actionable insights that improve their performance immediately. Key takeaways include a blueprint to emotional talent development: Self-awareness, self-leadership, social awareness and relationship management.
