Winning the Talent War: Three Unorthodox Rules to Elevate Recruiting, Retention, Performance, and Organizational Success

Gone are the days when a 250-300-word job description will do the work for us. Today, we must change the story we tell to attract (and keep) the best of the best. What does it look like to stand out from the competition to attract and retain top talent? +

Through years of extensive research and practical experience, Eric Termuende has developed a systematic approach to winning the talent war. In this inspiring and actionable keynote, Termuende takes the audience on a clear and concise journey that reveals three counterintuitive and extremely powerful steps to boosting performance, beating back competitive threats, and driving long-term shareholder value.

Takeaways include:

Increase retention of top performers, while having low-performers self-select out of the organization.

  • Key strategies to increase belonging and trust.
  • A deeper understanding of culture and where it actually lives within the team.
  • Techniques to differentiate your story to new candidates and existing team members.
  • A radically new framework for recruiting. --

The One Degree Shift: Building an Intentional Future

In a fast and dynamic world, the future is too unpredictable, which means our standard five- and ten-year strategy will no long work. Yet, standing still is the fastest way to watch our competition and goals race off into the distance. What we need to do, is focus on building an intentional future. What we need to do is embrace the small, one-degree shifts we make every hour of the day that will get us to where we’re going with more confidence, intention, and experimentation. Change can be scary. Standing still can be paralyzing. The one-degree approach is the way forward, in business and in life. It is the new framework to plan and thrive. +

In this interactive and humorous keynote, hear from Eric Termuende about how to build an intentional future, create opportunity and potential from every conversation and meeting, and realize that the future of work and life can be more optimistic than we ever thought possible.

Key takeaways include:

  • How to raise the level of consciousness on your decisions.
  • The ability to iterate and pivot faster.
  • Develop a deeper appreciation for the present moment and process rather than outcome.
  • Learn why practice development is more effective than habit development.
  • Become more resilient and persistent.
  • Be more in control of your future. --

Building a Thriving Community Rooted in Soft Skills, Belonging, and Psychological Safety

Having surveyed and interviewed thousands of people across North America, Eric Termuende profoundly discovered that a team doesn’t always equate to success — community does. Gone are the days when we could simply attract people solely based on what they can do and the experience they have. Competition is too fierce and employees need to be a part of something bigger than a group of people that share a common skillset; they need to share values, a similar way of working, and have a sense of community that many teams miss. +

In this highly engaging, interactive presentation, you’ll learn:

  • The components of a thriving community.
  • New best practices that allow your community to stand out.
  • How to tell a story that speaks to the right candidates.
  • The skills, competencies, and character traits of today’s workforce and how these individuals are shaping the future of work.
  • A clear framework for building and nurturing an environment where people thrive, together. --

–University of Calgary

The City of Calgary, Planning & Development, invited Eric Termuende to speak at our annual Town Hall. Based on the feedback, Eric was a tremendous hit with the employees. He was informative, entertaining and provided a few simple but practical tools for employees to take back to their workplace to build better communities. Wow! Thank you Eric.

–Planning & Development at The City of Calgary

Eric wowed us with his interventions at our manager summit. For the first act, his keynote presentation on the one-degree shifts to move from TEAM to COMMUNITY was perfectly tailored to the audience. A master storyteller, he captivated the group with humor and human insight, and made the abstract HR challenges of our business seem practical and simple. And then in the 2nd act, he facilitated a small audience implementation workshop of property managers that quickly moved them from conceptual discussion to realistic concrete actions. Bravo!

–Director Talent Development - North America, Caribbean, Mexico at Club Med

We had the opportunity to bring Eric in as the keynote speaker for our annual strategic planning workshop with all our Senior Leaders. Eric did an excellent job of helping us understand and connect the links between strategy and culture with some “one-degree shifts” in our thinking about people and process. This slight change in our thinking was a great catalyst for the subsequent discussions as we built out our strategies for the coming year.

–Vice President Human Resources, Toyota Material Handling

Eric is an absolute pro. He was tasked with closing our 4-day event. He was the 13th speaker, he followed 12 incredible presentations, not an enviable position to be in. Not only did he bring something from every other presentation into his program, he also wrapped our entire event with a bow. He may have been the youngest presenters on our faculty but ended like a seasoned pro.

–Founder, EPIC Conference

Eric delivered a high energy, engaging and informative keynote that left our people leaders inspired, informed and committed to shifting 1 degree. The task of creating a conversation about what ‘has got us here, won’t get us there’ was met 100% with modern research and examples of companies that were relevant and thought-provoking. Eric has a gift for deep listening, challenging the status quo and confidently sharing his stories with humility, humor at a world class standard.
