Any company can use some help when it comes to optimizing their processes. Especially if we are talking about a larger company which has several departments, you need to put quite a lot of work in aligning their performance to get increasingly better results.
Moreover, if there’s a speaker who can help you with this, then Jeff Havens is your man.
His experience in keynote speeches shows. Not to mention the fact that, throughout his career, he has provided presentations for 10% of the Fortune Top 50 companies. Even better, he adds comedic value to his expertises as a Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur or Fast Company contributor.
However, enough about his achievements, and let’s see how exactly can he drive business growth by using your best resource – your team.
1. Teamwork – Next Level
Within an organization, there are some issues which can trigger more problems than you would think. One of them is the age gap resulting from the heterogeneous nature of a larger team.
It is not just about age, however. It is about the fact that different work backgrounds come with different practices and acquired habits. Where these interfere, there is potential for conflict – which you may well want to avoid, if possible.
Jeff Havens understands this dynamic and designed a dedicated keynote, Us vs. Them, in which he tackles the issue in hysterical lines. The fun approach will set the premise for a laidback atmosphere – just what your team needs to unwind and connect better.
This keynote is so successful because it helps everyone address their biases and preconceived notions about teammates. Then, it discusses the intrinsic motivations which lie behind the surface. After taking everything in, a team will be able to understand better what drives people with different backgrounds and how they can see expectations and confrontation from a better perspective.
Here’s a clip to get a better idea of Jeff’s craft:
2. Growing Forward-Thinkers
Another aspect which drives growth within a business is innovation. You would like your team to be always motivated to deliver innovative ideas. However, this is something you need to cultivate long term. Moreover, patiently.
However, there’s more.
Having a particular talent for expressing any topic in straightforward lines, Jeff also came up with a great concept called uncrapify your future. Did you smile while reading it? It is because it is intended to raise an eyebrow and prepare guests to realize they have what it takes to get rid of ‘crappy’ habits which hinder them from being growth-oriented.
Jeff will develop a witty delivery to talk about:
- innovation-driven patterns,
- overcoming blockages and lack of motivation,
- encouraging individuals to value small ideas and grow them into bigger ones.
3. Management and Leadership – The Jeff Havens Way
In truth, many keynote speakers approach this topic. However, few of them manage to do it in such a truly innovative and also compelling manner like Jeff Havens.
He has a particular style and a one-of-a-kind approach when it comes to empowering a management team.
First, there’s the concept. Alternatively, rather, an intriguing call to action: Unleash your inner tyrant. Tyrant is a word used by Jeff to depict the relentless drive a leader must possess to constantly seek for ways to empower their colleagues.
All in all, Jeff’s way of delivering valuable insights can be best assessed only when seen in person. So, you will want to hurry up and hire him for keynote speeches which are hilarious, insightful and growth-inducing, all at the same time.
