He is is an entrepreneur, executive coach, columnist and keynote speaker. He has been featured on Inc., Time, Yahoo!, Business Insider, Thrive Global, The Muse, and Chicago Tribune.
Few people can speak about the power of people-centered leadership with more authority or passion than Marcel can. Whether your fast-growth company is at the 50 or 500 employee mark, Marcel has found that culture is likely the driver that got you there. Unfortunately, so often companies at this stage of enormous growth lose their identity, or “true north.”
Marcel will inspire leadership audiences to reimagine how putting people ahead of profits will become an even more profitable venture in return! The ingredients of this powerhouse secret sauce every leader has access to is described in his keynotes below.
Over the last twenty years, we have seen a huge trend impacting organizational cultures worldwide. It is the fight to keep employees happy, motivated, and ENGAGED. It’s a fight that, according to research, roughly only 30 percent of companies are winning.
While “leadership development” has been around for decades, people are still quitting their bosses! Marcel made it his mission to help organizations—from start-ups to corporate giants—develop inspiring leaders who are serious about making a difference in how they lead people.
His keynote speeches center around a key leadership philosophy that, it turns out, has been around for centuries. But the odd thing is—most of the top-down, command-and-control business world hasn’t caught up to it yet. What is this winning formula?
Let Marcel’s talk tell you why it’s so different and why it will work for you. Join in the movement.
Research finds that the best leaders rise above managing tasks, time and people to understanding the importance of “emotional currency”—counter-cultural behaviors that science finds will engage employees to perform at the highest level.
Trust, transparency, influence, courage, and self-awareness are a few examples of what matters most in Millennial-based team environments where discretionary effort is released as a catalyst for great work. So that’s our aim with this talk—to raise the capacity of leaders so they can in turn create the most collaborative and engaging teams to get results!
