Authenticity in the Workplace - Mike Robbins

Mike Robbins is the author of three books, Focus on the Good Stuff, Be Yourself Everyone Else is Already Taken, and Nothing Changes Until You Do, which have been translated into fourteen different languages.  He’s currently working on his forth book, Bring Your Whole Self to Work, due out in 2018.

As an expert in teamwork, leadership, and emotional intelligence, Mike delivers keynotes and seminars that empower people, teams, and organizations to work together effectively and be more successful. He has inspired tens of thousands of people around the world to reach new levels of awareness and productivity, both personally and professionally. Through his speeches, seminars, and writing, Mike teaches people important techniques that allow them to be more grateful, appreciative, and authentic with others and themselves.

His clients include some of the top organizations and institutions in the world, such as: Google, Wells Fargo, Microsoft, Charles Schwab, Twitter, Deloitte, the U.S. Department of Labor, Gap, New York Life, Stanford University, Chevron, eBay, Kaiser, UC Berkeley, Genentech, the San Francisco Giants, and many others. Mike is a member of the National Speakers Association and is one of less than 10% of the professional speakers in the world to have earned the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.

He has been featured on ABC News, the Oprah radio network, in Forbes, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and many others. Since 2008 he has been a regular contributor to the Huffington Post. Mike previously hosted his own radio show, “Nothing Changes Until You Do,” on Hay House Radio.  He’s the creator and host of the podcast, Bring Your Whole Self to Work.
Prior to his speaking, writing, and consulting career, Mike was drafted by the New York Yankees out of high school. He turned the Yankees down and instead chose to play baseball at Stanford University, where he pitched in the College World Series. He was drafted by the Kansas City Royals out of Stanford and played three seasons of professional baseball with the Royals organization before arm injuries ended his playing career while still in the minor leagues.

After his athletic career was cut short by injuries, Mike worked in sales and business development for two Internet start-ups. When the dot-com bubble burst in 2000 and he was laid off, it allowed him to follow a deeper passion – empowering and inspiring people – and opened the door for him to start working full time as a speaker, author, and coach.

In addition to earning a degree from Stanford in American Studies with a specialization in race and ethnicity, Mike has continued to educate himself. He has extensively studied many disciplines of both personal and professional development, and received training from the Coaches Training Institute.

He’s also a former board member for two non-profit organizations – Challenge Day (a powerful youth organization that focuses on peace, healing, and personal development for teens) and The Peace Alliance (an organization focused on creating a culture of peace here in America and around the world, as well as a grassroots political campaign to create a cabinet level U.S. Department of Peace).

In addition to his three books, Mike is also a contributing author to: Chicken Soup for the Single Parent’s Soul, Creating a Marriage You’ll Love, and Thirty Things to Do When You Turn Thirty.

Mike lives in Novato, CA (in the San Francisco Bay Area) with his wife Michelle, and their two daughters, Samantha and Annarose.

The Keys to Creating a Championship Team
Enhance loyalty, attitude, & success by doing what winning teams do

A “championship team” is a group of people who can effectively handle adversity and conflict, trust one another, communicate clearly and authentically, and appreciate each other in a positive way. In this program, which is based on key principles from all three of Mike Robbins’ books, as well as his background as a college and professional baseball player, he teaches people, leaders, and groups the fundamental aspects of creating successful teams that truly win.
This program:

  • Teaches people how to build more authentic relationships with the teammates
  • Unifies and inspires teams around their common goals and purpose
  • Shows how appreciation positively impacts both morale and productivity
  • Encourages people to be authentic in a way that builds trust
  • Challenges team members to take ownership for both personal and team success

The Power of Appreciation
Inspire success, engagement and perspective by being appreciative

Appreciation is one of the most powerful, yet overlooked aspects of successfully motivating and empowering people and teams. According to the latest research in the fields of positive psychology and strengths-based leadership, when individuals and teams put more attention on what is working and their strengths, instead of focusing on problems and perceived weaknesses, they thrive. Through this program, which is based on the key principles of his book Focus on the Good Stuff, Mike Robbins illustrates exactly how appreciation impacts productivity, morale, and success. 

This program:

  • Explains the important distinction between recognition and appreciation
  • Enhances teamwork and connection
  • Encourages a positive team culture that focuses on the good stuff – not on gossip, complaints, or negativity
  • Helps people effectively deal with adversity and stay positive in the midst of change and challenges
  • Provides tools and techniques for authentic empowerment

Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken: The Power of Authenticity
Create trust, confidence and team unity by being real

Authenticity is fundamental to relationships, communication, and success. Now more than ever, people, leaders, and teams must utilize the power of authenticity in order to build trust, resolve conflicts, and create cohesion. Some fascinating research in the field of emotional intelligence is proving that being real, honest, and even vulnerable are key elements to success and engagement. Through this program, which is based on the core principles of his book, Be Yourself, Mike Robbins illustrates exactly how authenticity impacts relationships, trust, and productivity.

This program:

  • Improves communication, connection, and trust in a positive way
  • Enhances emotional intelligence (EQ)
  • Challenges people, leaders, and teams to look at, deal with, and address the “elephants in the room”
  • Helps people effectively deal with conflicts and engage in difficult conversations successfully
  • Provides techniques for moving past fear and taking successful risks

Nothing Changes Until You Do
Navigate change and enhance resilience by taking ownership

Wherever we go in life, there we are.  The one constant in the midst of all of the change, stress, and uncertainty we face in business and life is us.  When we take ownership and responsibility for our experience, we not only make it easier to navigate the changes we face, we can empower ourselves and those around us to be authentically successful, regardless of the circumstances. This program, which is based on the core principles of Mike Robbins’ latest book, Nothing Changes Until You Do, illustrates exactly how individuals, leaders, and teams can thrive in the midst of change.  

The program teaches people to:

  • Take ownership and responsibility in an empowering way
  • Enhance their emotional intelligence (EQ)
  • Deal effectively with change and uncertainty
  • Have more compassion for themselves and others
  • Enhance the culture around them through authenticity and appreciation

Leading with Authenticity
Inspire others and build trust by being a REAL leader

Leadership can be challenging, especially in today’s face-paced, globalized world. Senior leaders with a strong sense of emotional intelligence (EQ), an ability to lead with personal transparency, and the capacity to inspire others in a genuine way, have a distinct advantage.

This program, which is based on the core principles of Mike Robbins’ three books, especially Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken, delves into practical ways for leaders to enhance their impact and effectiveness by leading with authenticity.

This program:

  • Teaches leaders how to connect at a deeper level with their teams and build real trust
  • Exemplifies the importance of authenticity and even vulnerability
  • Shows how appreciation positively impacts productivity, loyalty, and engagement
  • Encourages leaders to be transparent in a way that’s both liberating and inspiring
  • Teaches leaders key elements for enhancing their EQ

Additional programs that Mike delivers as keynotes, breakout sessions, or seminars:

  • The Keys to Creating a Championship Team
  • Building Authentic Relationships
  • Being a True Champion
  • Communicating with Impact
  • Leading with Authenticity
