Hi, I'm Erica Keswin

Three-time Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Speaker and Workplace Strategist

Watching the world of work change over the past 25 years (especially the last five!), I’ve never felt more convinced about the importance of bringing our human to work. 

I’ve always been passionate about helping people find the “sweet spot” between tech and connect in their lives and at work, but these days, nothing matters more. Creating a truly human workplace is not just good for people, and great for business, but it just might change the world. 

"Workplace strategist and author Erica Keswin knows how to create sustainable cultural impact for leaders and organizations with a focus on the crucial role of the people manager."

See Erica in Action

Erica Keswin is an internationally sought-after speaker, bestselling author, and workplace strategist who partners with some of the most well-known companies in the world on how to bring their human to work.

Everything we know about work today has shifted in the last four years.

The pace of change in where we work, when we work, how we work, and even why we work, has left managers and leaders with more questions than answers.

Employees across the board report feeling disconnected from their organizations and unheard by leaders.

In fact, according to Gallup, only 2 in 10 employees feel connected to their organization’s culture. They are overwhelmed by new developments and constant shifts, leaving them concerned about being left behind.

The irony is that as more technology is developed to help us engage and connect, the more disconnected, distracted, and disengaged we become.

In other words, left to our own “devices,” (excuse the pun) we’re not connecting—at work or in life.

My Unique Approach

My 3-Part Approach to Creating Connection at Work

Becoming a Human Leader

Subject matter expertise gets you promoted quickly, and then you’re expected to lead, teach, and help people grow. According to Fortune, 82% of bosses are “accidental managers” and a quarter of those are in senior leadership roles. They aren’t trained to lead nor prepared to thrive.  

Erica’s Human Leadership roadmap is designed to teach you how to become a more human leader, one who knows how to develop happier and more engaged employees AND serve the company’s bottom line. 

The human stuff is actually the hardest stuff—so don’t leave it to chance.   

Navigating the Modern Workplace

No matter if you’re working in person, hybrid or remote, it’s important to consider when and where employees connect and also identify the tools to help them do so.   

These days employees are often come together by chance, while leaders should prioritize and curate moments that matter. Because here’s the thing—the lack of intentionality is a recipe for resentment.  

Whether it’s creating meaningful employee experiences, leveraging rituals during meetings, or carving out time to develop your people, these tools will help you succeed in the modern workplace.

Leveraging Tech for Connection

The technology available to us today continues to expand at a mind-boggling rate. From email and texting all the way to Generative AI, we have so many different ways to communicate. It’s the Wild West out there! Which is why these days companies need some rules of the road. 

We humans often get sucked into the technology because it’s the easiest, most convenient option. But at what cost? Let’s face it: the default use of technology degrades connection.   

Learn how to leverage all that’s great about technology but also know when and how to put it “in its place” (aka, away).
