Tom Flick Keynote Speech Excerpt


Tom Flick surveys how even change has changed, explaining that transitions used to occur episodically, allowing enough time and stabilization for businesses to form committees dedicated to navigating the organization through periods of transformation. Now companies need to be equipped to handle non-stop waves of change all the time.

He shares that effective leaders nurture a culture in which employees see the world as a place of big opportunities. He explains that in order to make progress everyday leaders must “connect the head and the heart” rather than turning initiatives into “intellectual exercises” supported by the latest studies and numbers. “You can’t lead with that, because you’re leading human beings,” Tom insists, maintaining that quantitative data and analyses are not the key to engaging employees “to win the day.”

Speeches / Speaking Engagements Back to top


Tom Flick speaks on the topic of leadership and is considered an authority on the subject. He helps people become better leaders throughout all levels of enterprise, whether addressing executive leaders, managers, salespeople, or frontline employees. Tom motivates audiences to move faster – with less chaos – to achieve success no matter the obstacles, to lead change, and seize opportunities for growth – all while accelerating personal and organizational performance.

Leading Change
Empowering Successful Transformation

The ability to change quickly and efficiently is not a core competency of most organizations. For nearly all organizations, change is difficult, painful and costly. In a world of ever increasing rates of change and where entire economies can shift almost overnight, the ability to change quickly and well can mean the difference between an organization thriving or dying. When a major change arises, getting it right the first time becomes imperative.

Leading Change sets the stage for creating a core competency in change leadership. Organizations that lead change effectively can take advantage of significant opportunities, avoid looming hazards, and thereby create enormous value for their stakeholders. Studies show overwhelmingly that organizations and their leaders that are adept at change grow faster, create more wealth, enhance customer success, gain public support, and compete more effectively. It is, in fact, the largest differentiating factors in the top performing organizations in the world.

Leading Change sets the stage for organizations to take the next step forward by clarifying the value of Harvard Professor, Dr. John Kotter’s 8-step process, by equipping leaders with the proper understanding of how successful change is created. While it may be true that most people don’t like change, leaders who understand the dynamics of change can slice through resistance and outperform the competition.

The Heart of Leadership
Leading People to Excellence

Create decisive advantage for your organization. The Heart of Leadership demonstrates how capturing both minds and hearts will be crucial. Organizations that do will rise to the top, consistently out performing their competition. Tom demonstrates with stunning clarity how Leaders who positively engage not just the minds, but also the hearts of their people consistently achieve stronger mission awareness, higher productivity and better schedule performance.

The Heart of Leadership presents the core drivers for creating great leaders throughout the organization. From corporate titans to emerging start-ups, the skill and capacity to capture and engage the hearts of people will be the decisive factor in their success. No longer can one charismatic individual lead the vision alone. The catalyst for sustained high-level performance is leadership, from top-to-bottom, which empowers every individual.

Everyone leads… executives, managers, sales, marketing, and front-line employees. The Heart of Leadership mobilizes and inspires people to become superior leaders to achieve amazing results. Empower more leaders, better leaders, at all levels of your organization. Transforming organizations into great enterprises is a process driven by the heart, the true source of all inspired performance.

True Urgency
A Highly Focused Force

Create action that is exceptionally alert, externally orientated and relentlessly aimed at winning. In a fast-moving and changing world, contentment with the status quo can create disaster. Success, or perceived success, produces an inwardly focused organization which reinforces the status quo. A false sense of urgency in an organization has a great deal of action, but it’s driven by anxiety and fear and not a determination to win, and win as soon as possible. Both challenges prevent organizations from exploiting crucial opportunities and accelerating their strategic plan.

In a world that will not stand still, the all-too-common problem of complacency and false urgency can be solved by producing the very positive and highly focused force of true urgency. True urgency is driven by the belief the world contains great opportunities and great hazards. With true urgency people respond with action now, not later, ignited by a deeply-felt determination to make something happen. Now means making progress every single day. Now means tackling challenges that are essential to success or survival, winning or losing.

True urgency creates fast-moving actions in people that are focused on important issues, pushing to achieve ambitious goals despite obstacles, working to achieve progress every single day. True Urgency will produce results in your people that you very much want and the world very much needs. True Urgency opens the door for people to feel true empowerment, true job satisfaction, and bring their “A” game for the ultimate success and profitability of their organization.
