Over the last 15 years, organizational psychologist, Dr. Tasha Eurich has helped make thousands of leaders AWESOME. From start-ups to the Fortune100, the celebrated leadership expert and lively speaker works with organizations, boosting the effectiveness of CEOs, senior management, and entire teams.

After receiving her PhD in Organizational Psychology from Colorado State University, Tasha took the reigns of the global leadership program at CH2M HILL, a Fortune 500 engineering and program management firm. She was later recruited by Rise Medical Center/HealthOne where she built a leadership development program from scratch. Her initiatives ultimately lead to $8 million in savings and a coveted spot in the "Top 25 Hospitals to Work For" by HealthExecNews.

In 2011 Tasha founded The Eurich Group and has had no shortage of clients. On top of that, her best-selling business book Bankable Leadership: Happy People, Bottom Line Results and the Power to Deliver Both has attracted more!

Tasha serves on the faculty at the Center for Creative Leadership, one of the top-ranked executive education institutions in the world. In 2014, she was named a Top 100 Thought Leader by Trust Across America alongside the likes of Stephen Covey, Jim Kouzes, and Bill George.

Full Profile

Tasha is a born entrepreneur. In the early 1980s, her mother started and grew a successful company. Watching her find fulfillment and a way to support their family as a single mom, Tasha witnessed the power of businesses to transform lives. Eager to get going and ever the Type A person, she started her first business at age 11 (if you’re curious, they designed and delivered children’s birthday parties so parents could hang out and drink wine instead of stressing).

When it was time for college, Tasha braved the freezing Vermont temperatures to study Theater and Psychology at Middlebury College. She returned to Colorado, her much-less-freezing home state, to complete her PhD in Organizational Psychology at Colorado State University. As the youngest instructor in their business school, she earned a commendation for teaching excellence and fell in love with teaching. She also cut her teeth as a junior consultant, working with businesses like Poudre Valley Hospital and New Belgium Brewing (no, they didn’t pay her in free beer).

Tasha knew she didn’t want to be one of those consultants who told companies what to do but had never worked in one. So after graduate school, she entered the Fortune 500 world. Starting out at CH2M HILL, an engineering and program management firm, Tasha worked her way up from an entry-level position to leading the company’s global leadership programs, where she travelled the world to help their leaders be better.

She was then recruited to work for the CEO of Rose Medical Center/HealthONE (Yes, nurses and engineers—basically the same, right?). Here, she had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a leadership development program from scratch. In less than 18 months, the programs she built saved the hospital more than $8 million, and they were named one of the Top 25 Hospitals to Work For by HealthExecNews. Her boss was pretty pleased, and Tasha knew she was onto something!

In 2011, Tasha founded The Eurich Group, which helps companies succeed by making their leaders AWESOME (primarily through workshops, keynotes, and executive and team coaching).

In her spare time, when not working on her second book, Tasha enjoys traveling, cycling and is an unapologetic theater nerd. She lives in her hometown of Denver, Colorado, with her husband and their rambunctious dogs.

Dr. Tasha Eurich, Organizational Psychologist: TEDx Talk


Dr. Tasha Eurich takes a look at how we can find the time, energy, and willpower to invest in “that thing” we’ve always been meaning to learn or work on, yet constantly put off in favor of the “urgent” list of tasks and obligations that bog so many of us down. She shares three key tactics that anyone can apply to become “totally awesome” at whatever skill they wish to master.

Revealing the first step, she advises people to be aware of the Dunning Kruger Effect, or as it is known in NPR circles, “the Lake Wobegon Effect,” meaning that most people severely overestimate their talents and abilities. “If you had room for improvement, would you know?” Tasha asks rhetorically. “Delusions about ourselves are the roadblocks on the journey to becoming awesome.”

Dr. Tasha Eurich, Organizational Psychologist: Speech Excerpt


Keynote Speech



Speeches / Speaking Engagements Back to top


As a passionate, often humorous and always enlightening speaker, Tasha has built a reputation as a fresh, modern voice in the leadership world. Her audiences use words like “enthusiastic,” “sharp,” and “pithy” to describe her style. Blending scientific savvy, hands-on tools, and powerful stories of leadership transformation, her programs are packed with interactive discussion, real-world application, and experiential activities. Audiences don’t just walk away inspired and entertained—they are ready to transform.

For Tasha, no two talks are ever the same, because no two groups are the same. She meticulously customizes her programs, spending time to understand her clients’ organization and industry. After her presentations, it’s not uncommon for audience members to ask, “Are you sure you don’t work here?”

Leadership: General Audiences
Bankable Leadership: Happy People, Bottom Line Results and the Power to Deliver Both
Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, associationmembers, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Summary: In today’s competitive business environment, leadership is as difficult as it is important. Even though research tells us that effective leaders balance people and results, this complicated balancing act is easier said than done. In the quest to create happy employees and drive bottom-line results, most leaders feel more comfortable doing one than the other—choosing either a “Cool Parent” or “Trail of Dead Bodies”approach. And whether they know it or not, this imbalance drastically limits their success.

In this entertaining keynote based on her New York Times best-selling book, Tasha will help you master the balance. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can help almost anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment. At the end of the session, you’ll understand your personal preferences as a leader, what skills you’ll need to sharpen, and leave with a plan to improve immediately.

Optional “How To” Tools: For keynotes of 90 minutes or more: Building trust, setting clear expectations, fostering transparency, showing compassion, treating adults like adults, supporting without hand-holding, bringing out employees’ best, entitlement-free appreciation, no-fear feedback, change leadership, building focus to build results, and employee engagement.

Becoming a Generational Genius: Why Most Generational Problems are Leadership Problems in Disguise
Ideal Audiences: Boomer, Gen Xer, and Millennial managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members; anyone who is struggling with generational issues at work.

Summary: For centuries, people have been lamenting the foibles of younger generations. And for organizational leaders, generational conflict seems inevitable. In this informative talk based on her own scientific research, Tasha reveals why most generational problems are really leadership problems in disguise.

Are Millennials more self-centered than other generations? Is work less important to them? Does rampant generational conflict really exist? Audiences will learn the myths and realities of generational differences, what the real problems actually are, and how effective leadership can heal most generational ailments. They will leave with a clear understanding of their own generational beliefs, actionable tips to lead across generations, a specific plan to improve inter-generational harmony.

Specialized Audiences

Bankable Leadership Strategy: The Secret Weapon to Accelerating Business Success

Ideal Audiences: Executives (VPs, SVPs, Presidents, C-suite leaders) who are accountable for setting strategy and shaping culture in their organizations.

Summary: Good leaders create economic value—and poor leaders can sink companies. To advance their business strategy, companies must have the right leaders in the right place at the right time. But this is easier said than done. Although most CEOs believe that developing leaders is critically important, few believe they’re doing it well.

In this interactive and action-packed talk, Tasha will give you the keys to her kingdom. She’ll review a practical process to build a Bankable Leadership Strategy that accelerates your business goals. Audience members will leave with practical tools to help their leaders attract, engage, develop and retain top talent, as well as a Leadership Strategy Assessment to take home to continue their learning.

Bankable Leadership for Technical Leaders: Happy People, Technical Excellence and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal audiences: Technical leaders—from the front line to the C-suite—in professions such as engineering, science, information technology, finance, accounting, and medicine.

Summary: The professions of engineering, science, technology and finance are full of highly-competent, meticulously trained experts—who study for decades to get where they are. The best among them often become leaders. But with precious little training and a “sink or swim” mentality from their organizations, many hit a wall for the first time in their careers. They quickly learn that the skills to be an effective leader are different from the skills that got them where they are (people aren’t quite as predictable as computers, atoms, or balance sheets!).

Tasha understands this conundrum—over the last decade, she’s transformed hundreds of technical leaders. Participants will learn a scientifically-based, nuts-and-bolts process to “hack the code” of leadership. This isn’t a “woo woo” or “pie in the sky” leadership talk—audiences will leave with practical insights, specific tools, and a plan to improve immediately.

Bankable Leadership for Healthcare Leaders: Happy Clinicians, Quality Outcomes, and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal audiences: Physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, clinicians, and healthcare professionals who are directly or indirectly responsible for providing patient care in settings like hospitals, physician offices, or health systems; associations or organizations with clinical leaders.

Outcomes: In recent years, there's been a seismic shift in the U.S. health care industry. Patients have taken charge: they’re informed, focused on outcomes, and demanding value for their money. Healthcare leaders must help their organizations respond to this new reality. To do this, they must balance many competing behaviors: collaborating with employees and holding them accountable; treating employees like humans and ensuring consistent results; creating a supportive environment and driving continuous improvement.

These complex demands leave many scratching their heads. After working with healthcare leaders for years (including an internal role in a hospital), Dr. Eurich has the prescription: Bankable Leadership. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can help healthcare leaders achieve happy people while delivering high-quality, efficient care. You’ll learn your preferences as a leader, a model for effective healthcare leadership and a plan to improve starting today.

Bankable Leadership for Education Leaders: Happy Teachers, Quality Education, and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Summary: In the world of education, expectations are elevated, resources are scarce, and leaders are facing unprecedented challenges. To succeed, they must balance many competing priorities: implementing mandated reforms and getting buy-in from teachers, students and parents; demanding accountability from teachers and sustaining morale; creating a performance-based environment and a collaborative culture. Education leaders who can’t rise to meet these challenges will feel stressed, ineffective, or overwhelmed.

Luckily, Tasha’s fresh, science-based approach can help almost anyone become a more effective leader. In this session, you’ll understand your preferences as a leader, learn a simple framework for effective education leadership, and make a plan to improve starting today.

Employee Engagement

From Indifferent to Involved: How Bankable Leaders Boost Employee Engagement

Ideal audiences: Managers, executives, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members.

Summary: According to research on employee engagement, for every engaged employee, there are two actively disengaged ones. This statistic rightfully strikes fear in managers’ hearts. While engaged employees are productive, positive, and committed, disengaged employees are absent, pessimistic, and entitled. It’s no wonder that stock prices of companies with disengaged employees lag their competitors by almost 5 to 1. So, what creates disengaged employees? Very often, it’s the very choices and behaviors of the managers themselves!

In this entertaining yet pragmatic talk, Tasha will reveal three common mistakes managers make that unintentionally disengage employees—and what Bankable Leaders do instead. You’ll leave a clear understanding of the science behind employee engagement and a few powerful tools to improve it.

Peak Performance

The Scientific Prescription for Breakthrough Professional Success

Ideal audiences: Association members; general public, individual contributors, entrepreneurs.

Summary: Today’s business environment is more competitive than ever. To succeed, you have to stand out. And to stand out, you have to continuously grow your skills. Strangely, people spend time and money on diets to lose weight, or personal trainers to be healthier, but most of us don’t truly invest in our professional success. Instead, we wait for a magic bullet that never comes—and feel stuck, frustrated or overwhelmed in the meantime.

After spending more than a decade helping leaders transform, Tasha has discovered a pattern: three steps for professional success that don’t just apply to leadership—they apply to any skill you want to develop. Based on her popular TEDx talk, she will help you build a plan to become more effective, credible and confident at work. Through the science of human behavior and the stories of real people who have transformed, you’ll leave with a prescription to supercharge your professional success.

-Vincent Ragucci SVP, Government Affairs & Strategic Business Development, Parsons Brinkerhoff

She exceeded our expectations, and I’d enthusiastically recommend her to any audience that wants to improve their leadership skills.”
- Traci Lounsbury Principal and Owner, Elements

Tasha has truly turned me into a believer in the power of leadership.”
- Jacob Wiesmann CFO, Parkland Medical Center, HCA Healthcare

“Tasha's fresh and practical approach really connected with my team of engineering and operations leaders. Through an engaging and science-based approach, she was able to make the often “fuzzy” topic of leadership both practical and learnable. The time spent with Tasha received the highest praise from everyone and created new energy around improving leadership skills.”
- Cheryl Campbell Vice President, Gas Engineering and Operations, Xcel Energy

“Dr. Eurich has an approach that is different than other speakers that I have had the opportunity to listen to.

Her training and follow up have set in motion a change in both my management style and outlook toward taking my operations to the next level.”
- Brad Patrick Strategic Account Development Manager, SOS Employment Group

“I was very impressed with your comfort in letting the audience, most of whom were well-versed in the subject matter, direct the conversation.

- Randy Smith Business Group President, CH2M HILL

Tasha’s expertise and knowledge largely contribute to our success during these times of change.”
- Cathy Bailey Transition Manager, Greater Cincinnati Water Works & Metropolitan Sewer District

“Tasha Eurich is an expert in the leadership, motivation, workforce management and organizational development spaces. Her foundation in academics - coupled with her realistic and graceful style – makes her a dynamic and engaging speaker.”
- Bob Chapman Senior Director Talent Management, Xcel Energy

“I first met Tasha Eurich when I attended her presentation among a crowd of about 30 executives. Typically, I expect to sit through such a presentation, meet a few colleagues and leave wondering why I bothered attending. Much to my surprise, this meeting was different. From the moment Tasha started addressing the crowd I was captivated. Tasha immediately engaged with the audience, and before we knew it, we were “part” of her presentation. Tasha is obviously smart, well read, and intuitive, but in my opinion, her winning personality and excellent communication skills are what make her such a dynamic speaker. I would recommend her highly to anyone who is looking to align themselves with a true professional.”
- Carolyn De Rubertis Chief Executive Officer, Hand Surgery Associates

She is an asset to any business group seeking excellence in leadership!”
- Connie Wood Director of Imaging Services, Parker Adventist Hospital – Centura

“Dr. Eurich's presentation was both informative and engaging. She spoke eloquently and was very approachable. As a first year graduate student...

- Allison Kolick Graduate Psychology Student

Bankable Leadership: Happy People, Bottom Line Results, and the Power to Deliver Both

People or Results? You Don't Have to Choose!
You probably already know how to build a budget, negotiate a deal, read a financial statement, and build a capital expenditure case. But does that make you a good leader?

You may be a top performer in sales, but do you know how to create a high-performing sales team? To get the most out of them? To feel fulfilled in your job beyond just meeting your quota?

If you're like many leaders, these questions make you feel anxious, or maybe even slightly panicked. Why? Because most organizations spend a lot of time and money on technical training but invest precious little in teaching people to lead.

In Bankable Leadership, psychologist, executive coach, and proud leadership geek Dr. Tasha Eurich solves this dilemma and reveals how to make leadership exhilarating, fun, and fulfilling. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical model can help anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment that ensures sustainable success.

Leadership: General Audiences
Bankable Leadership: Happy People, Bottom Line Results and the Power to Deliver Both
Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, associationmembers, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Summary: In today’s competitive business environment, leadership is as difficult as it is important. Even though research tells us that effective leaders balance people and results, this complicated balancing act is easier said than done. In the quest to create happy employees and drive bottom-line results, most leaders feel more comfortable doing one than the other—choosing either a “Cool Parent” or “Trail of Dead Bodies”approach. And whether they know it or not, this imbalance drastically limits their success.

In this entertaining keynote based on her New York Times best-selling book, Tasha will help you master the balance. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can help almost anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment. At the end of the session, you’ll understand your personal preferences as a leader, what skills you’ll need to sharpen, and leave with a plan to improve immediately.

Optional “How To” Tools: For keynotes of 90 minutes or more: Building trust, setting clear expectations, fostering transparency, showing compassion, treating adults like adults, supporting without hand-holding, bringing out employees’ best, entitlement-free appreciation, no-fear feedback, change leadership, building focus to build results, and employee engagement.

Becoming a Generational Genius: Why Most Generational Problems are Leadership Problems in Disguise
Ideal Audiences: Boomer, Gen Xer, and Millennial managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members; anyone who is struggling with generational issues at work.

Summary: For centuries, people have been lamenting the foibles of younger generations. And for organizational leaders, generational conflict seems inevitable. In this informative talk based on her own scientific research, Tasha reveals why most generational problems are really leadership problems in disguise.

Are Millennials more self-centered than other generations? Is work less important to them? Does rampant generational conflict really exist? Audiences will learn the myths and realities of generational differences, what the real problems actually are, and how effective leadership can heal most generational ailments. They will leave with a clear understanding of their own generational beliefs, actionable tips to lead across generations, a specific plan to improve inter-generational harmony.

Specialized Audiences

Bankable Leadership Strategy: The Secret Weapon to Accelerating Business Success

Ideal Audiences: Executives (VPs, SVPs, Presidents, C-suite leaders) who are accountable for setting strategy and shaping culture in their organizations.

Summary: Good leaders create economic value—and poor leaders can sink companies. To advance their business strategy, companies must have the right leaders in the right place at the right time. But this is easier said than done. Although most CEOs believe that developing leaders is critically important, few believe they’re doing it well.

In this interactive and action-packed talk, Tasha will give you the keys to her kingdom. She’ll review a practical process to build a Bankable Leadership Strategy that accelerates your business goals. Audience members will leave with practical tools to help their leaders attract, engage, develop and retain top talent, as well as a Leadership Strategy Assessment to take home to continue their learning.

Bankable Leadership for Technical Leaders: Happy People, Technical Excellence and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal audiences: Technical leaders—from the front line to the C-suite—in professions such as engineering, science, information technology, finance, accounting, and medicine.

Summary: The professions of engineering, science, technology and finance are full of highly-competent, meticulously trained experts—who study for decades to get where they are. The best among them often become leaders. But with precious little training and a “sink or swim” mentality from their organizations, many hit a wall for the first time in their careers. They quickly learn that the skills to be an effective leader are different from the skills that got them where they are (people aren’t quite as predictable as computers, atoms, or balance sheets!).

Tasha understands this conundrum—over the last decade, she’s transformed hundreds of technical leaders. Participants will learn a scientifically-based, nuts-and-bolts process to “hack the code” of leadership. This isn’t a “woo woo” or “pie in the sky” leadership talk—audiences will leave with practical insights, specific tools, and a plan to improve immediately.

Bankable Leadership for Healthcare Leaders: Happy Clinicians, Quality Outcomes, and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal audiences: Physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, clinicians, and healthcare professionals who are directly or indirectly responsible for providing patient care in settings like hospitals, physician offices, or health systems; associations or organizations with clinical leaders.

Outcomes: In recent years, there's been a seismic shift in the U.S. health care industry. Patients have taken charge: they’re informed, focused on outcomes, and demanding value for their money. Healthcare leaders must help their organizations respond to this new reality. To do this, they must balance many competing behaviors: collaborating with employees and holding them accountable; treating employees like humans and ensuring consistent results; creating a supportive environment and driving continuous improvement.

These complex demands leave many scratching their heads. After working with healthcare leaders for years (including an internal role in a hospital), Dr. Eurich has the prescription: Bankable Leadership. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical approach can help healthcare leaders achieve happy people while delivering high-quality, efficient care. You’ll learn your preferences as a leader, a model for effective healthcare leadership and a plan to improve starting today.

Bankable Leadership for Education Leaders: Happy Teachers, Quality Education, and the Power to Deliver Both

Ideal Audiences: Managers, executives, high potentials, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members, anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills.

Summary: In the world of education, expectations are elevated, resources are scarce, and leaders are facing unprecedented challenges. To succeed, they must balance many competing priorities: implementing mandated reforms and getting buy-in from teachers, students and parents; demanding accountability from teachers and sustaining morale; creating a performance-based environment and a collaborative culture. Education leaders who can’t rise to meet these challenges will feel stressed, ineffective, or overwhelmed.

Luckily, Tasha’s fresh, science-based approach can help almost anyone become a more effective leader. In this session, you’ll understand your preferences as a leader, learn a simple framework for effective education leadership, and make a plan to improve starting today.

Employee Engagement

From Indifferent to Involved: How Bankable Leaders Boost Employee Engagement

Ideal audiences: Managers, executives, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, association members.

Summary: According to research on employee engagement, for every engaged employee, there are two actively disengaged ones. This statistic rightfully strikes fear in managers’ hearts. While engaged employees are productive, positive, and committed, disengaged employees are absent, pessimistic, and entitled. It’s no wonder that stock prices of companies with disengaged employees lag their competitors by almost 5 to 1. So, what creates disengaged employees? Very often, it’s the very choices and behaviors of the managers themselves!

In this entertaining yet pragmatic talk, Tasha will reveal three common mistakes managers make that unintentionally disengage employees—and what Bankable Leaders do instead. You’ll leave a clear understanding of the science behind employee engagement and a few powerful tools to improve it.

Peak Performance

The Scientific Prescription for Breakthrough Professional Success

Ideal audiences: Association members; general public, individual contributors, entrepreneurs.

Summary: Today’s business environment is more competitive than ever. To succeed, you have to stand out. And to stand out, you have to continuously grow your skills. Strangely, people spend time and money on diets to lose weight, or personal trainers to be healthier, but most of us don’t truly invest in our professional success. Instead, we wait for a magic bullet that never comes—and feel stuck, frustrated or overwhelmed in the meantime.

After spending more than a decade helping leaders transform, Tasha has discovered a pattern: three steps for professional success that don’t just apply to leadership—they apply to any skill you want to develop. Based on her popular TEDx talk, she will help you build a plan to become more effective, credible and confident at work. Through the science of human behavior and the stories of real people who have transformed, you’ll leave with a prescription to supercharge your professional success.


Dr. Tasha Eurich, Organizational Psychologist: TEDx Talk


Dr. Tasha Eurich takes a look at how we can find the time, energy, and willpower to invest in “that thing” we’ve always been meaning to learn or work on, yet constantly put off in favor of the “urgent” list of tasks and obligations that bog so many of us down. She shares three key tactics that anyone can apply to become “totally awesome” at whatever skill they wish to master.

Revealing the first step, she advises people to be aware of the Dunning Kruger Effect, or as it is known in NPR circles, “the Lake Wobegon Effect,” meaning that most people severely overestimate their talents and abilities. “If you had room for improvement, would you know?” Tasha asks rhetorically. “Delusions about ourselves are the roadblocks on the journey to becoming awesome.”
