Happier People, Happier Organizations

The strongest companies in the world have the happiest people working at them. Coincidence?

The Secret to Never Being Too Busy Again

What’s the biggest complaint in the workplace? I’m too busy. We’re too busy. There’s not enough time. And there’s too much to do. But regardless of the stress and demands put on us at work, there are three simple rules you can implement tomorrow to create space in your days. In this fast-paced and resource rich talk Neil uses his trademark Sharpie scribbles to share 1) How to make every decision at twice the speed, 2) The counterintuitive way to have more time, and 3) How to add an hour to your day with only one small change.

The 3 A’s of Awesome – Classic or Case Study Versions

The talk is available in the Classic version that inspires audiences through Pasricha’s personal narrative and his universal "attitude, awareness and authenticity" model, which guarantees your group will laugh, cry, and take a big step back to reevaluate and reenergize themselves to move forward. The talk is also available in the Case Study version as the 3 S’s of Awesome (Social, Stimulation, Story), a customized case study format for workplaces where business case studies and real-life corporate examples leave your group with key takeaways that can be applied in the workplace at no cost to drive employee engagement and happiness.
