Topic Presentations

Four factors will dominate the coming decades of work, each critical for organizations and individuals to understand. After a year of intensive research across the world of work, living and learning in 12 countries, Tyler's findings on the future of work are compelling, challenging and inspiring.  

We may not be able to predict the future, but that doesn’t mean we can’t determine how to prepare. In fact, now’s the time for organizations to build a sustainable foundation for future success. Given a future of unpredictable change, today demands a strategy for navigating the 10,000+ days of our life's work. The future of work is not distant, it’s now. And the conversation is pressing. This topic is equally provoking and motivating. Expect lots to talk about after. 

Takeaways include: 

  • Discovering the four challenges of future work 

  • Frontier and unique insights from an accelerating world of work 

  • Tactical work principles to prepare for what’s coming next 

  • Workshop Addition: Customized interactive content drawing from numerous executive-level topics (reminder, Tyler is a respected and engaging educator) 

What if the biggest factor shaping the future success of organizations and employees is whether we can engage one person at a time? What if unlocking discretionary effort is the key? Numerous studies point to findings just like that. If people fully engage, the future looks bright. If they don't, quite the opposite. The challenge is, employee satisfaction levels have declined for decades. 

Join Tyler Waye in his journey around the world, researching and exploring the human relationship with work. What are the conditions for deeply satisfying work? How do we declare and develop our life’s work? What are the human-centred rules to unlock work’s greater meaning?

  • Discoveries in human-centered work, and why they matter 

  • Data and details on work’s greatest barrier to success 

  • One principle and three actionable rules to unlock greater meaning at work 

  • Workshop Addition: Customized interactive content drawing from numerous executive-level topics (reminder, Tyler is a respected and engaging educator) 


Leadership is a powerful tool and one of humankind's most powerful abilities. Even before we knew what to call it, leadership was how we envisioned and built a better tomorrow for ourselves and others. When you zoom out to recognize this potential, few things are as clear and compelling. But here’s the new twist. In a world of work - defined by the unpredictable - how does that vision appear? 

Join Tyler Waye’s exploration around the world to take on this leadership challenge. Uncover the modern principles and ancient laws anchoring a simple truth: that when leadership shifts from a status to a mindset, everything changes. It’s how we embrace a future that flips from being done to us, to being done by us. Change becomes what we lead. Expect to leave this presentation with a deep recognition that’s tangible, memorable... and often, transformational.   

Takeaways include: 

  • A ground-breaking leadership model  

  • Strategically sound principles that inspire action and change 

  • Leadership insights that encourage individual and organizational alignment   

  • Workshop Addition: Customized interactive content drawing from numerous executive-level topics (reminder, Tyler is a respected and engaging educator)
