Speech Topics

Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.


Summary: In today’s competitive business environment, leadership is as difficult as it is important. Even though research tells us that effective leaders balance people and results, this complicated balancing act is easier said than done. In the quest to create happy  employees and drive bottom-line results, most leaders feel more comfortable doing one than the other—choosing either a “Cool Parent” or “Trail of Dead Bodies” approach. And whether they know it or not, this imbalance drastically limits their success. In this entertaining keynote based on her New York Times best-selling book, Dr. T will help you master the balance. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can help almost anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment. At the end of the session, you’ll understand your personal preferences as a leader, what skills you’ll need to sharpen, and leave with a plan to improve immediately.


Optional “How To” Tools: For keynotes of 90 minutes or more: Building trust, setting clear expectations, fostering transparency, showing compassion, treating adults like adults, supporting without hand-holding, bringing out employees’ best, entitlement-free appreciation, no-fear feedback, change leadership, building focus to build results, and employee engagement.

Ideal Audiences:  Executives (VPs, SVPs, Presidents, C-suite leaders) who are accountable for setting strategy and shaping culture in their organizations.


Summary: Good leaders create economic value—and poor leaders can sink companies. To advance their business strategy, companies must have the right leaders in the right place at the right time. But this is easier said than done. Although most CEOs believe that developing leaders is critically important, few believe they’re doing it well. In this interactive and action-packed talk, Dr. T will give you the keys to her kingdom. She’ll review a practical process to build a Bankable Leadership Strategy that accelerates your business goals. Audience members will leave with practical tools to help their leaders attract, engage, develop and retain top talent, as well as a Leadership Strategy Assessment to take home to continue their learning.

Ideal audiences: Technical leaders—from the front line to the C-suite—in professions such as engineering, science, information technology, finance, accounting, and medicine.


Summary: The professions of engineering, science, technology and finance are full of highly-competent, meticulously trained experts—who study for decades to get where they are. The best among them often become leaders. But with precious little training and a “sink or swim” mentality from their organizations, many hit a wall for the first time in their careers. They quickly learn that the skills to be an effective leader are different from the skills that got them where they are (people aren’t quite as predictable as computers, atoms, or balance sheets!).  Dr. T understands this conundrum— over the last decade, she’s transformed hundreds of technical leaders. Participants will learn a scientifically-based, nuts- and-bolts process to “hack the code” of leadership. This isn’t a “woo woo” or “pie in the sky” leadership talk—audiences will leave with practical insights, specific tools, and a plan to improve immediately.

Ideal audiences: Physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, clinicians, and healthcare professionals who are directly or indirectly responsible for providing patient care  in settings like hospitals, physician offices, or health systems; associations or organizations with clinical leaders.


Outcomes: In recent years, there’s been a seismic shift in the U.S. health care industry. Patients have taken charge: they’re informed, focused on outcomes, and demanding value for their money. Healthcare leaders must help their organizations respond to this new reality. To do this, they must balance many competing behaviors: collaborating with employees and holding them accountable; treating employees like humans and ensuring consistent results; creating a supportive environment and driving continuous improvement. These complex demands leave many scratching their heads. After working with healthcare leaders for years (including an internal role in a hospital), Dr. T has the prescription: Bankable Leadership. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can help healthcare leaders achieve happy people while delivering high-quality, efficient care.  You’ll learn your preferences as a leader, a model for effective healthcare leadership and a plan to improve starting today.

Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Summary: In the world of education, expectations are elevated, resources are scarce, and leaders are facing unprecedented challenges. To succeed, they must balance many competing priorities: implementing mandated reforms and getting buy-in from teachers, students and parents; demanding accountability from teachers and sustaining morale; creating a performance-based environment and a collaborative culture. Education leaders who can’t rise to meet these challenges will feel stressed, ineffective, or overwhelmed. Luckily, Dr. T’s fresh, science-based approach can help almost anyone become a more effective leader. In this session, you’ll understand your preferences as a leader, learn a simple framework for effective education leadership, and make a plan to improve starting today.

Ideal audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, entrepreneurs, emerging leaders, association members.


Summary: According to research on employee engagement, for every engaged employee, there are two actively disengaged ones. This statistic strikes fear in managers’ hearts—and rightfully so. While engaged employees are productive, positive, and committed, disengaged employees are absent, pessimistic, and entitled. It’s no wonder that stock prices of companies with disengaged employees lag their competitors by almost 5 to 1. So, what creates disengaged employees? Very often, it’s the very choices and behaviors of the managers themselves! In this entertaining yet pragmatic talk, Dr. T will reveal three common  mistakes managers make that unintentionally disengage employees— and what Bankable Leaders do instead. You’ll leave a clear understanding of the science behind employee engagement and a few powerful tools to improve it.

Ideal audiences: Association members; general public, individual contributors, entrepreneurs.

Summary: Today’s business environment is more competitive than ever. To succeed, you have to stand out. And to stand out, you have to continuously grow your skills. Strangely, people spend time and money on diets to lose weight, or personal trainers to be healthier, but most of us don’t truly invest in our professional success. Instead, we wait for a magic bullet that never comes—and feel stuck, frustrated or overwhelmed in the meantime. After spending more than a decade helping leaders transform, Dr. T has discovered a pattern: three steps for professional success that don’t just apply to leadership—they apply to any skill you want to develop. Based on her popular TEDx talk, Dr. T will help you build a plan to become more effective, credible and confident at work. Through the science of human behavior and the stories of real people who have transformed, you’ll leave with a prescription to supercharge your professional success.
