    Unlocking the Power of Your People Through Adult Development Theory

    Utilizing Research to Create the Ultimate Work Environment

    (Customized Keynote to Full-Day Program)

    Presentation Overview:


    Most organizations are constantly looking for ways to get the most out of their people and create the ultimate work environment. An environment where everyone shows up as their best selves has each other's back and moves the organization toward its key goals.

    But we have never been more divided as a people. There is so much productivity lost simply because the old way of doing things is clearly not working anymore. It’s been harder to recruit, retain and develop the team and leaders we need.

    With wildly changing work expectations, quiet quitting, and older generations retiring at high rates, it’s never been more important to unlock the ability to truly solve your biggest people problems at work.

    The fascinating research of Adult Development Theory is based on tens of thousands of studies over the last 60 years that prove that all people regardless of the origin of birth, gender, or language spoken, pass through predictable and sequential stages of maturity. Each stage has different core motivators, fears, characteristics, and ways they are driven to take action.

    This research fills in the gaps of personality types and generational data to give you a full picture of how to connect with and ethically influence others. This research will break down the four stages of maturity that currently exist (that have absolutely nothing to do with age) that will explain why certain people get a long and drive change…while others create conflict and slow results.

    If you are looking for research-based insights into solving your biggest people problems, this presentation is for you.

    Key Presentation Outcomes:

    • Gain a completely new way of understanding your people based on their stage of maturity that will unlock how you approach trust and teamwork.
    • Uncover surprising insights into what makes people tick based on the 4 stages of maturity that dominate our workplace
    • Be inspired with strategic actions customized to your group, such as talent building, retention, and messaging
    This a-ha-inducing, fun, and engaging presentation will keep your audience saying “wow” to themselves based on the insights, examples, and solutions presented that will help them finally understand people in a truly amazing way.

    This presentation takes 60 years of research and presents the most specifically actionable ideas in a fun way that will leave your audience on the edge of their seats and wanting to give you a standing ovation for bringing in this topic.
