George Nagle's 2023 talks & topics

Achieve True Innovation in 8 Months

The simple phenomena creative brands employ to make people wonder how they innovate so quickly.

There never seems to be enough time in the day to get to everything that we have going on. Deadlines at work, important social events, the kid’s extracurricular activities, and the list goes on. All of these things can make you feel like it is a win if you can bring out a mere iteration in a few years.

However, you see competitors or groups in other industries launching true innovations, and it feels like they are doing it every time you turn around! What is the secret?

What if, in our quest to deliver so many things, we inhibit ourselves from delivering anything of value to anyone, especially ourselves?

It turns out the answer is very simple. They understand how to make time their ally. This naturally brings out the best in everyone that is allowed to participate so everyone can succeed.

In this exhilarating 60-minute keynote presentation, former executive director and author George Nagle describes how he led a group to launch 19 products in 14 months in the highly conservative world of oil and gas chemistry. You will be inspired, not merely motivated, because you will walk away knowing how to deliver this immediately with actions you will start before even leaving the presentation. Your comfort zone will be challenged in an engaging way that is simple, effective, and, more importantly, achievable at work and at home.

There isn’t a big mystery around the concept, but understanding it might be the trick others are missing.

Three Takeaways

  1. Less is more using the power of 3.

  2. Customers need to be in the ensemble.

  3. Time is your ally if you let it be.

POST EVENT: After your event, George Nagle puts in the effort to follow up. Ten days after the event, he will have scheduled meetings with a few different team members to ensure action is taking place. He wants you to succeed!

Unleash Creativity To Increase Productivity

Fun at work isn’t cliche when intentional. Open and present organizations know it increases productivity by 20 to 40%.

Making a mistake often feels to the individual significant to the person that made it. When a culture develops the idea that the leaders can’t admit or acknowledge mistakes, it has a repressive effect. The repression stifles creativity and drives down productivity.

Forced functions, especially outside of work hours, don’t promote a fun atmosphere at work for 75 to 80% of employees. Doing odd games that have no relevance to an objective is counter-productive.

Imagine releasing creativity with your teams and customers that deliver new markets. You get automatic buy-in and an eagerness to want to complete a project fast. Pushing people goes away and is replaced by productivity that is measurable and sustainable.

In this captivating 60-minute keynote presentation, former executive director and author George Nagle breaks down how he led a group to launch 19 products in 14 months and a $352 million portfolio. You will leave with an understanding and method to allow for a culture that builds on trust. The trust allows you to inspire individuals to unleash their creativity so you can increase productivity.

A renewed energy filters throughout the organization allowing you to increase output. Your new biggest issue might become having too many amazing ideas to work on that everyone wants to complete!

Three Takeaways

  1. Being open encourages creativity.

  2. Staying present builds trust.

  3. Intentional fun reduces stress for better productivity.

POST EVENT: George Nagle will customize a video to bring intentional fun to your organization. It will be designed to take less than 20 minutes and cost under $10. This action will actively indicate to your ensembles you are dedicated to them and positive change.

Communicate Strategy to Engage Your Culture

The #1 issue in any company is communication, but so few companies share the power of strategy.

We all know that the weakest link of a chain determines the strength of that chain. The same can be said for the strength of an organization. Those that are slowest, underfunded, understaffed, and, most importantly, least informed will be the limiting factor to success. They are just doing tactics without a defined direction, which according to Sun Tzu is “the noise before defeat.”

Why are so many companies struggling with getting the information throughout an organization? Is it fear that competitors will find out? A lack of understanding? Limited confidence in those that work around you?

What happens when we let go of all of those fears and communicate repeatedly, and consistently, the importance at the individual level?

Cultures start to change and people become energized. Things that would take years start to get accomplished in months. Your organization becomes the envy of the market and your biggest worry is when you are going to begin to cannibalize your own market share before your competitors start to catch up.

In this illuminating 45-minute keynote presentation, former global strategist and author George Nagle talks about how he developed multiple global strategies for multi-billion dollar enterprises. You get a methodology for developing a strategy that consistently drives performance while empowering achievement at all levels of the organization. It engrains a culture of succeeding together in a fun and simple way.

It is simple, but simple doesn’t mean easy. It will require some discipline from upper management and an openness to letting go of how things have been done before- after all that is how your competitors are doing it.

Three Takeaways

  1. Set out the top 3 objectives; talk about only those constantly.

  2. When you think everyone knows the message, they are just starting to hear it.

  3. Tell everyone, individually, how they impact the strategy.

POST EVENT: Follow-up with three members of the organization: the CEO, a middle manager, and an entry-level hirer will happen with George Nagle in ten days. During this session, he will work through communication to drive faster creative innovation for everyone.

Happiness at Work Is Possible

“When you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.” We all know that quote, but more than 90% of people don’t think it is possible.

Imagine if it was the other way around? That only 10% of the population felt that they are miserable at work. The amount of enthusiasm might be so high that you would have to set a new standard for hiring as you get thousands of applications for any opening because people want to work with you.

When we understand how important it is to enjoy what we do, we truly develop a deeper comprehension of the significance of our relationships as humans. We like to work with our friends, and that is more than half of the battle to being happy at work.

Opening up the understanding of our relationships also means we dig deeper into finding and accepting the value we hold for anything that we do. When we don’t see value in a task for ourselves, we loathe doing it. Think about filling out paperwork; does that bring you value or someone else? Do you like doing it?

In under 60-minutes, George delivers a keynote presentation on what makes people happy and how to bring it into the workspace that naturally will spill over to home life. The methods and tools that are presented are designed for immediate use while being fun to employ. The trust allows you to inspire individuals to unleash their creativity so you can increase productivity.

It is time we start making work intentionally fun. When we do, the innovation that will naturally come will drive astronomical revenue and profitability.

Three Takeaways

  1. You need 5 positive to 1 negative interaction.

  2. Misery at work comes from not understanding the value of doing any task.

  3. Being actively heard and contributing creates happiness.

POST EVENT: George Nagle will follow up with several tools to help promote within your organization a desire to bring out happiness for everyone. These tools will be shared at multiple levels to aid in the communication process.

The FIve Letter F Word

Focus.

The amount of distractions that people face has been increasing for decades. Adding onto that, the expectations of output with the increase of technology and we get individuals that are very busy, but not always productive. They certainly are not happy.

Incredible data sets have demonstrated that when people focus, they achieve fantastic things in very short periods of time. They also derive satisfaction, eagerness, and self-esteem.

What happens if we start to take a few things off of people’s plates at work? Or what happens if we only allow for a few things?

Cultures start to change and people become energized. Things that would take years start to get accomplished in months. Your organization becomes the envy of the market and your biggest worry is when you are going to begin to cannibalize your own market share before your competitors start to catch up.

In this illuminating 45-minute keynote presentation, author of The Five Letter F Word™, part of the Breakthrough Thinking™ Series, George Nagle focuses on how you can. You get a methodology for developing a strategy that consistently drives performance while empowering achievement at all levels of the organization. It engrains a culture of succeeding together in a fun and simple way.

The shift in perspective to focusing on a few key items enables growth for your business by helping people grow.

Three Takeaways

  1. Setting people up for success means eliminating distractions.

  2. Communication is more important than being right.

  3. Everyone is a customer.

POST EVENT: Within a few days, a very direct and personalized message to your company will be sent in a video from George Nagle. This video will be the reminder for how your ensemble can focus, and also a motivator to take action.
