Creating High Performance Workplaces

Organizations are experiencing fast-moving transformations like never before. Leadership strategy experts Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton can help your team think and act more decisively with a set of proven strategies that can accelerate their ability to continually learn, evolve, and navigate through complex challenges.

With a keynote or workshop designed for senior leaders and managers (which can be tailored for all employees), the New York Times bestselling authors of All In and Anxiety at Work offer 6 Practical Strategies:

Gostick and Elton can help your team evolve from a “must know it all” to a “must learn it all” mindset.
This re-engineered way of thinking can help lessen the discomfort of transformation by eliminating the pressure for your manager to have all the answers and to enable them to move forward with a focus on delivering the best results they can.

“In our data, leaders who were described as ‘decisive’ were 12 times more likely to be high-performing: and they do so consistently, even when dealing ambiguity.”

Engagement & Motivation


Recognition & Gratitude

Stress, Anxiety & Mental Health

Extremely engaging and motivating talk. Most importantly, the content was tailored perfectly to ensure it was relevant to the fast paced and forever changing needs of our clients.

Sally Williams, Executive Director Morgan Stanley, Hong Kong

Tangible, relevant and practical insights on how to create and maintain healthy employee engagement and accelerate any company culture.

Dave Dodson Vice President, California Pizza Kitchen

The feedback was outstanding. Everyone was talking about being 'All-In.' We now have some highly energized, engaged, and enabled leaders.


We had the pleasure of inviting Chester Elton to speak at our company meeting. It was, by far, the best inspirational talk I've ever heard, full of practical takeaways. We then gifted Leading with Gratitude to all our team members and decided to read it together as a team. The data and studies cited in the book on the positive power of leadership should convince anyone on the fence that teams and cultures perform better when people feel valued. I found practical ways to improve my gratitude quotient and strengthen my team culture. The speech was excellent, and the book was a great reminder and thoroughly energizing. If you need a great keynote speaker for your company or event, do yourself a favor and book Chester Elton. You won't be disappointed!
