Leadership Keynote Speaker

Impactful Leadership Training Straight From the Heart


The Most In-Demand Leadership Keynote Speaker

As a popular leadership speaker, business motivational speaker, and consultant to companies worldwide, Adam Markel has proven that empowerment is the secret to effective leadership.

At the breakneck pace of today’s business world, two things are certain-change is here to stay, and disruption isn’t going away. Companies that don’t adapt and constantly improve to stay relevant will fall to the wayside.

To improve your employees’ performance, you have to take on one of the toughest challenges in the known universe: changing their minds. Adam’s heart-centered approach helps busy leaders inspire their colleagues to think differently with practical strategies and techniques that nurture success.

Inspiring & Empowering Modern Leaders

Adam Markel shares his timeless, eye-opening message through a combination of powerful stories and audience interaction. He truly is one of the best leadership speakers in the game.

At his events, people laugh, cry, learn how to get things done, have fun, and get guidance on how to be wildly successful all at once. His emotional workshops and keynote presentations are full of insight on:

  • How transparency creates trust, the most important element of building a high-performance team.
  • How to create a sustainable company culture built on the cornerstones of trust, self-care, and accountability.
  • How to hold team members accountable from a place of empathy as opposed to judgment. Learn the best ways to motivate with love rather than fear.
  • A revolutionary feedback loop that encourages authentic conversations. Genuine, open interactions can open the lines of communication and build strong bonds.
  • Systems that encourage healthy risk-taking and create a culture of cooperation versus one of fierce competition. As Adam says, a “got your back” not a “watch your back” culture.
  • How to deal with burnout, turnover, and toxicity with programs that recharge, reinvigorate, and eliminate negativity.

Leadership Keynote Speaker on Resilience

Resilience is the backbone of any successful team because it gives us the ability to be at best even in the most challenging situations. After working with tens of thousands of people from companies of all different sizes, Adam learned that an organization is only as strong as the resilience of the people in that organization.

Before any of our business keynote speaker workshops, we will perform a Resilience Assessment test for each of your employees. This provides us with a snapshot of your strengths and weaknesses, so we can curate specific content for your team. One of the ways we test for resilience is with a short questionnaire focused on 4 areas of well-being: mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual.

The 4-tier Recovery Map map is a personal tool that addresses each area of well-being to cultivate resilience and rejuvenate the spirit. Attendees who fill out the questionnaire will receive a recovery map with suggestions on how to make incremental improvements in different areas of well-being.

Our 7-part Resilient Culture framework is a toolbox for creating systemic resilience within your organization. It helps leaders develop a meaningful culture built around purpose, trust, accountability, and well-being.

The leadership core talk comes with a Resilience Assessment – designed to help each team member build a set of strategies and rituals to bolster their well-being, which leads to better cognitive performance. It presents a simple set of self-care steps you can take to energize your life and operate at a higher capacity.

As one of the top leadership speakers, Adam lays out strategies that are proven to foster a “got your back” vs, a “watch your back” culture. Attendees will also learn about interactive team-building exercises that build trust and bring teams closer together.
