Be Real: Know Who You are, Speak in a Human Voice, and Empower Employees

This flagship talk is based on Erica’s twenty years as a consultant for some of the most iconic brands in the world, as well as her recent research for her book on what makes a company more “human.” Erica offers powerful case studies and walks leaders and managers through her ten sure-fire ways to help them design a more human workplace. Chapter one of Erica's book is BE REAL, which is number one for a reason: if companies don't do this, nothing else sticks. For anyone and everyone running a business of any size and in any industry, this keynote offers unique and practical ways to connect with customers and employees in an authentic—and much more effective—voice.

Manage Millennials with Ease: Just Honor Relationships

For businesses who want to attract and retain early-career professionals, Erica offers innovative ways to honor relationships, which is critical for those who want to keep their business current, connected, and relevant to every generation. She helps leaders and managers understand the values that are most important to this generation and shows them how to cultivate a culture of diversity, inclusion, and flexible work practices.

Play the Long Game: Make Your Business Truly Sustainable

In today’s purpose-seeking economy, top talent and valuable customers are all demanding that businesses be held accountable for everything from environmental impact, to diversity, to flexible work. This keynote offers leaders and managers dynamic case studies and an actionable roadmap for investing in the long game.

Find the Sweet Spot: It’s Between Tech and Connect

This keynote is targeted to managers and leaders who find themselves up against the wall of the digital deluge, and want to make a change. Erica offers real-world case studies and shows people practical ways to find that sweet spot—leveraging all that’s great about technology, while at the same time learning how to disconnect to reconnect.

Truly Human Diversity and Inclusion Requires One Thing: Be Intentional

Study after study make it clear that truly diverse teams perform better than groups where everyone is cut from the same cloth. In this keynote, Erica calls upon her twenty years of research and consulting to help leaders bring all kinds of humans to their workplace. By focusing on intentional work practices—the how, when, and where employees contribute to a company's mission—leaders can develop a a truly diverse, and ultimately sustainable workforce.

Good Things Happen When Women Connect

This popular keynote is for women who know how important it is to honor relationships at work (and in life!) but need a little nudge and a roadmap to make it happen. Because we’re so busy leaning in, dropping the ball, breaking ceilings, multi-tasking till the cows come home, not to mention demanding pay equity and freedom from abuse and harassment, it’s all too easy to forget our basic needs. When we connect our stress hormones go down, and our feel-goods rise. We’re happier, more productive, and better humans. Based on twenty years of studying workplace culture and being a professional woman with three children, Erica combines the science with simple, actionable, life-changing steps to bringing your human to work every day.

Bring Your Human to Work-Shops

Inspire your human workplace with a customized half-day workshop guiding you and your team on the Three-P Principles of honoring relationships at work.

Because of this workshop’s focus on human tools to reach human goals, it’s easily adaptable to any audience and industry.

The Three P’s to Honoring Relationships at Work (or Anywhere!)

In this hands-on workshop, Erica shares research-based, practical advice from her hundreds of case studies from leading “human” companies. Based on her research, Erica has developed a simple, actionable guide to help individuals and teams who seek to maximize their human interactions in the face of so much digital distraction.

She calls her approach the THREE P’s to Honoring Relationships

1. PRIORITIZE: Does your calendar reflect your values? Do you honor relationships as part of your day-to-day?

2. POSITION: How can you leverage what's great about technology and also know when it's time to "put it in its place?" What position does technology play in your work/life strategy?

3. PROTOCOLS: We think this technology has been around forever, but it's really brand new. We all need some rules of the road. What protocols make sense for you and your team?

Walking individuals and teams through the Three P’s participants immediately see that not only is honoring relationships good for people, and great for business, but it just might change the world.

Turn your workshop into a Spaghetti Project by adding a spaghetti and meatballs lunch (of any variety—classic, veg, vegan, kosher) and an additional presentation by Erica on the power of connections at work.
