Greg McKeown - Breaking Through to the Next Level

Greg McKeown has dedicated his career to discovering why some people break through to the next level—and others don’t.

The definitive treatment of this issue is addressed in McKeown’s latest project: the instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less.  As well as frequently being the #1 Time Management book on Amazon, this book challenges core assumptions about achievement to get to the essence of what really drives success.

McKeown is the CEO of THIS Inc, a company whose mission is to assist people and companies to spend 80 percent of their time on the vital few rather than the trivial many. Clients include Adobe, Apple, Google, Facebook, Pixar, Salesforce.com, Symantec, Twitter, VMware and Yahoo!.His writing has appeared or been covered by Fast Company, Fortune, HuffPost, Politico, and Inc. Magazine. He is among the most popular bloggers for the Harvard Business Review and LinkedIn’s Influencers group: averaging a million views a month.

 McKeown has been interviewed on numerous television and radio shows including NPR’s All Things Considered and NBC’s Press: Here. Entrepreneur Magazine voted his interview at Stanford University the #1 Must-See Video on Business, Creativity and Success. 

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

This keynote speaks to anyone who has ever felt overworked and underutilized, always busy but never productive who are making a millimeter of progress in a million directions. Greg McKeown shares a system he used as part of the Stanford course he co-created called “Designing Life, Essentially.” It is a system for achieving more by doing less: a way for discerning what is essential, eliminating what is not, and removing obstacles in order to make the execution of what IS essential as easy and effortless as possible.

By applying tougher, more selective criteria, we can regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and efforts toward the goals and activities that truly matter.

Leadership Essentials

In this keynote, Greg McKeown demonstrates why leading as an essentialist is critical for taking teams to the next level and produce breakthroughs in results and innovation. He teaches five principles, providing examples on how teams and companies can be killed by their own success—and what to do instead. Using evocative stories, hard questions and thought-provoking exercises, this keynote is designed to be interactive and interesting from beginning to end.
