Travis Bradberry ON Speaking Back to top


People can be better than they ever imagined by learning how to increase their emotional intelligence.

SPEAKING.COM: What do you want people to learn / take away from your presentations?

BRADBERRY: That people can be better than they ever imagined by learning how to increase their emotional intelligence.

SPEAKING.COM: What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How do you prepare for your speaking engagements?

BRADBERRY: First, I get on the phone with the client who has invited me to come speak. Each client is different and I craft my EQ presentation to meet their needs. I ask many questions to set expectations for how and what I can deliver to meet their needs. Next, I prepare something that will knock their socks off.

It’s hard to understand why people were so nervous, but it was a very uncertain time.

SPEAKING.COM: Have you had any particularly memorable speaking engagements / unusual situations arise while on the road?

BRADBERRY: Shortly after 9/11 a homeless man who had wandered into the venue through an open service door came into my session, walked up to the stage, and asked me for some water. He had many extra layers of clothing on which made people really nervous, because they thought he might have a bomb. I gave him some water and had him sit down and we took a little break so people could calm down. Looking back, it’s hard to understand why people were so nervous, but it was a very uncertain time. I asked my client if they sent him in as an EQ test for me.

Another time I sat next to Oakland A’s great Dave Stewart on a flight from a speaking engagement and we talked baseball the whole way home to San Diego.

SPEAKING.COM: What types of audiences would most benefit from your message?

BRADBERRY: It really runs the gamut, but I often speak to leaders, high potentials, sales, and engineering groups.

SPEAKING.COM: Which of your keynote speaking topics are your favorites and why?

BRADBERRY: Emotional intelligence, of course!

SPEAKING.COM: What inspired you to start doing speaking engagements?

BRADBERRY: The energy in the room. It’s palpable.

SPEAKING.COM: How much do case studies, personal stories and or humor factor into your keynote speech content?

BRADBERRY: I incorporate all three quite a bit.

I’ve been very fortunate to be able to help my clients succeed with EQ.

SPEAKING.COM: What are some of the successes you've helped clients make?

BRADBERRY: I’ve been very fortunate to be able to help my clients succeed with EQ. Here are some examples:

  • Created a cutting-edge leadership development solution, with real accountability for results.
  • Invested in EQ as the foundation for staff who empathize with and respond to guest needs.
  • Increased self-awareness to take C-suite leader performance to the next level.
  • A high-performing executive team navigated unprecedented organizational growth with EQ.
  • Equipped management teams with EQ skills to guide staff through organizational changes.
  • Measured emotional intelligence skills and personality to unify leaders’ perspectives.
  • Prepared sales associates with EQ skills to handle demanding clients.
  • Confronted the anxieties of servicing customers, cold calling, and a changing competitive market.
  • Increased staff satisfaction and retention with three proven EQ skill development strategies.

    In today′s fast-paced world of competitive workplaces and turbulent economic conditions, each of us is searching for effective tools that can help us to manage, adapt, and strike out ahead of the pack.

    By now, emotional intelligence (EQ) needs little introduction—it’s no secret that EQ is critical to your success. But knowing what EQ is and knowing how to use it to improve your life are two very different things.

    Emotional Intelligence 2.0 delivers a step-by-step program for increasing your EQ via four, core EQ skills that enable you to achieve your fullest potential:

    1) Self-Awareness
    2) Self-Management
    3) Social Awareness
    4) Relationship Management

    Emotional Intelligence 2.0 is a book with a single purpose—increasing your EQ. Here’s what people are saying about it:

    “Emotional Intelligence 2.0 succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way.”
    —The Dalai Lama

    “A fast read with compelling anecdotes and good context in which to understand and improve.”
    —Newsweek

    The Personality Code
    A revolutionary approach to success and fulfillment-already being used by hundreds of thousands of individuals and organizations-now available for the first time in an accessible, practical book.

    The Personality Code clearly and persuasively demonstrates how personality determines why we do what we do and how we can maximize our strengths, work smarter with others, and profit from better relationships in our careers.

    Based on the IDISC(tm) Personality Profile-an updated and rigorously validated proprietary version of DISC, the world′s most popular form of personality testing-the book provides insights and strategies for individuals and organizations that promote self-awareness and foster excellence.

    Readers will have free access to the online IDISC(tm) Personality Profile (each book will include a unique code number), which will reveal their own profiles from among the fourteen personality types that have been refined and defined through the author′s decade-long international study involving more than five hundred thousand participants.

    Travis Bradberry shows readers how to discern the fixed characteristics that explain three-quarters of human behavior. Most important, they will learn how to leverage these traits in order to capitalize on their strengths and sidestep weaknesses in themselves as well as in other people.
