Eric Termuende is a seasoned keynote speaker and best-selling author who has given over 400 presentations to industry-leading businesses and associations all over the world.
Now, with The Great Resignation in full force and organizations and associations struggling to attract and retain top talent, Eric’s keynote presentations inspire business leaders to prepare for the future of work and make the one-degree shifts that build trust, belonging, and engagement at work.
A life-long entrepreneur, Eric has surveyed and interviewed thousands of employees and leaders coast to coast in his efforts to put numbers behind the employee experience and understand what separates great teams and leaders from the pack. He brings a fresh perspective to workplace culture and what it takes to build incredible teams.
As a renowned keynote speaker, Eric inspires, challenges, and shares the tools needed to succeed in a wildly unpredictable future. Since his best-selling book Rethink Work came out in 2017, he’s been an in-demand speaker and commentator on this subject and other aspects of The Future of Work, leadership, and workplace culture.
If there is one thing we’ve all learned in the past months, it is that the future is impossible to predict. Knowing that, how do we build teams that thrive in the weeks, months and years to come? The answer lies in one-degree shifts: small, consistent changes that enable teams to build trust, remove friction, and build a culture of innovation.
In this engaging, and takeaway-loaded presentation, workplace expert Eric Termuende shares what years of research, stories, and insights uncover about the one-degree shifts leaders use to adapt to an ever-changing world around them and build incredible teams. From Domino’s Pizza to the British Cycling Team, discover how the consistent application of small, incremental changes improves camaraderie, belonging, psychological safety, and engagement. While the future of work is certain to be uncertain, there is nothing to say we can’t still thrive in it.
Having studied some of the world’s best leaders and surveyed thousands of employees, workplace expert and bestselling author Eric Termuende knows that those who lead remote teams do three things effectively: They communicate well, reduce friction, and build a deep sense of trust. With the world changing at a break-neck pace, there are key steps we can take today to ensure that we’re mitigating burnout and getting the most out of our teams whether working remotely or together in the office.
In this fully customized, insightful, and takeaway-filled keynote, Eric Termuende shares leadership stories from the Cleveland Browns to Chicago’s Holy Cross Hospital to uncover what separates incredible hybrid workplaces from those that are losing talent and suffering as a result. Building stronger remote teams requires a deeper understanding of how we use our time, connect with our people, and tie recognition back to our values. While the future is anything but certain, the actions we take today are sure to prepare us for whatever the world throws our way.
Regardless of which research we subscribe to; the outlook is bleak: employees coast-to-coast are transitioning jobs at rates we haven’t seen since the Vietnam War. And while many of us think this is a threat to our workplace culture and organizational success, the truth is that the opportunity has never been greater to establish a one-of-a-kind culture that attracts and keeps an incredible team. Instead of calling it ‘The Great Resignation’, perhaps it should be called ‘The Great Reconfiguration’. After all, people aren’t leaving the workforce, they’re aligning with a lifestyle that suits them. This is where the secrets lie.
In this head-scratching, insight-filled, and unexpectedly funny keynote, workplace culture and future of work expert Eric Termuende takes us on a journey filled with out-of-the-box ideas that are budget- free and immediately actionable as we work to not just survive ‘The Great Resignation’ but thrive through it. Just because there is a national talent shortage, doesn’t mean our team has to have one too.

"We had the opportunity to bring Eric in as the keynote speaker for our annual strategic planning workshop with all of our Senior Leaders. Eric did an excellent job of helping us understand and connect the links between strategy and culture with some “one degree shifts” in our thinking about people and process. This slight change in our thinking was a great catalyst for the subsequent discussions as we built out our strategies for the coming year."
