Keynote Speakers

We’re on a mission to change the world of work through strengths-based talent development. And when it comes to talent, there is no one-size-fits-all rule that serves everyone. Instead, we empower team leaders with content, coaching, and technology that enable everyone to do their best work. We start with the team leader because the team starts there. We help team leaders unleash their own talent and the talent of the people they lead.

Founder & CEO

Marcus first conquered the bestseller lists in 1999 with First, Break All the Rules. While the title may imply an iconoclastic streak, his continuing plea for managers to break with tradition has nothing to do with rebellion; instead, he argues, rules must be broken and discarded because they stifle the originality and uniqueness — the strengths — that can enable all of us to achieve our highest performance.
