Speaking and Seminars

Succeed on Your Own Terms:

Based on the New York Times Best Seller, "Succeed on Your Own Terms," which BusinessWeek said "contains great advice," Herb has engaged audiences around the world with his inspiring presentation. The lessons and stories he shares are gleaned from interviews he conducted with people who have carved their own path to success. In this dynamic, motivating presentation, you will learn how to identify your defining qualities, develop you unique definition of success and truly love what you are doing. By encouraging you to think about success in an entirely different way and showing you how winners see themselves and their world, Herb provides a road map to help you find your own success.

What Men Can Learn from Women Leaders:

Caliper's global study of top women leaders shows that by playing to their unique strengths in today's increasingly diverse and global economy, women are redefining leadership. This presentation identifies core qualities that distinguish outstanding women leaders—including their being more persuasive than their male counterparts, more collaborative in their approach to problem solving and decision making, and, interestingly, more willing to take risks. Male and female leaders will learn about each other – and consider how to improve their own style of leadership.

The Psychology of the Sports Champion
What It Can Mean for Your Business:

What do top performing athletes and successful leaders have in common? What separates them from those who give it their all, but never quite make the grade? What is it about the mental attitude of top performers that enables them to rise to the top? The answers to these questions matter more now than ever before, as we all compete in a game where the rules keep changing at lightning speed.

For decades, Caliper has used its personality test to understand exactly what makes a champion. This presentation gives participants a glimpse inside the mind of a winner—and how the lessons from professional athletes matter now, more than ever before, to your company's success. Herb discusses four distinct traits that make a winner and this presentation explains how to find which ones best define you, so you can use it to your competitive advantage as we all move forward in these challenging times.

How Leaders Surround Themselves With Top Performers:

In this engaging, informative, inspiring presentation, you will learn how many of the world's best companies are identifying and developing the potential of applicants who are motivated to exceed expectations. You will also discover the four hiring mistakes that will prevent you from bringing the best people on board. And the three most common errors made when trying to develop someone's potential.

Coaching for Success:

Why do so many individuals who participate in a coaching program forget everything they've learned the next day? This enlightening presentation will explain why it happens and how to change the outcome. You'll find answers to the questions: Does anyone really change? How much time should you invest in improving poor performers? And, what truly distinguishes you from your competitors? Discover how to coach people to reach their true potential and help themselves and your company succeed.
