Topic Presentations

In this presentation, Tanveer Naseer examines what makes for a successful training program and uses that framework to help attendees understand how to facilitate a continuous learning environment in their organization. Insights audience members take away from this presentation include:

  • What studies have shown to be the fuel that drives our internal motivation drives and how this impacts our ability to learn and grow.

  • How to improve learning and adaptation by avoiding the 5 motivation don’ts and implementing the 5 motivation do’s.

  • 5 critical steps leaders need to incorporate into any continuous talent improvement program to ensure success and overall growth within their organization.

  • How to effectively address conflicts that adversely impact employee morale in order to sustain and build overall productivity.

In this presentation, Tanveer Naseer discusses the three core psychological needs studies have shown we all have, and how they can help us to not only prevent the spread of workplace zombies, but also how we can tap into these core psychological needs to create employees who care. Using a combination of the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology, along with storytelling and audience participation exercises, audience members come away with a better appreciation for not only how they can stop the spread of employees who simply check their brains at the door, but also how they can encourage their teammates to commit their discretionary effort to their shared purpose.

In this presentation, Tanveer Naseer reveals that charisma is not about charm, but about the ability to inspire and motivate those under your leadership to commit to a shared purpose by building powerful and effective communication skills. Over the course of this keynote, he addresses:

  • The common traits shared by charismatic leaders and how audience members can learn to tap into their native charisma.

  • What it takes to communicate better with those under your leadership in order to create a workplace environment that challenges others to learn and grow within the organization.

  • The four “Charismatic Leadership Tactics” and the two words charismatic leaders use to drive success in their organizations.

In this presentation, Tanveer discusses how the four Leadership Principles shared in his first leadership book, “Leadership Vertigo” can help leaders to tap into the native talents, creativity, and experiences of their employees in order to promote organizational adaptability and growth in the years to come.

Over the course of this talk, Tanveer looks at:

  • How leaders can foster a sense of community in their organization to encourage employee engagement and accountability.

  • How leaders can develop their emotional competence to build and strengthen relationships to drive organizational success.

  • What leaders can do to increase self-awareness in their leadership in order to better respond to their organization’s needs.

  • How tapping into our innate sense of compassion can drive innovation and success.

Over the past few decades, there’s been an exponential rise in the number of books and studies on leadership and what we need to do to ensure organizational success in today’s increasingly complex and interconnected global market. And yet, we continue to see year after year research that shows employee engagement and morale levels plateauing on the low end of the scale. Why is this? Why are we unable to move the needle and create the kind of working conditions that not only allow our employees to succeed, but thrive under our leadership? What these findings reveal is that leaders often can’t see the gap that exists between what they want their leadership to represent and how others actually experience their leadership. Many of us are experiencing a common perceptual problem where our brain sends us false signals assuring us that everything is okay when it is not. We call this phenomenon Leadership Vertigo. Leadership Vertigo: Why We All Go Off Course and How We Can Get Back on Track will help you to understand how you can counter these bouts of self-deception by employing four Leadership Landmarks, Community, Competence, Credibility, and Compassion, to get your team back on course.
