Nick Jankel is a top 50 global keynote speaker who speaks on how conscious leadership and wisdom can—and must—be leveraged to shape a successful future of business and society in an increasingly complex and crisis-hit world.

Research has shown that leaders have a more significant impact on employee mental health than doctors, therapists, or even spouses. In one study, men with a boss they didn’t respect were 60% more likely to suffer a heart attack. The world is becoming exponentially more complex, uncertain, and crisis-filled, leaving employees feeling anxious, confused, and languishing. There has never been a more crucial time for conscious and wiser leaders to switch on and step up.

It takes immense personal effort to muster the courage, conviction, clarity, and inner coherence to safely guide others through these times and steward them toward a more purposeful, engaged, and ethical future. However, many bosses expect others to change, transform, and innovate without first shifting how they show up, grow up, and shape up.

Having worked with senior leaders in remarkable organizations throughout my entire adult life, I’ve witnessed many well-meaning executives unknowingly sabotage their success, destabilize their grounding, and demean their team members. I recognize these behaviors because I’ve acted similarly for years. I had to recover from being smart and sharp to become even a little conscious, awake, and wise.

Together with my collaborators, I’ve developed a pathway and, crucially, a set of embodied practices to help leaders achieve the hardest task in life: changing themselves. This transformation enables them to then change their teams, organizations, and industries. Taking your brief, I commit to working tirelessly to amplify your messages and elevate your ambitions while remaining independent as a thought leader, challenger, and aspirer.

Every one of my keynotes is customized to meet and exceed expectations, connecting with your specific audience to unleash energy, momentum, inspiration, and traction. I can share how to unleash more conscious and wise leaders who are open, not closed, responsive, not defensive, and empowering, not egotistical. Learn how anyone can break and self-transform persistent and pernicious patterns that sabotage ambitions and diminish themselves and others.

Discover how to be authentic, humble, and vulnerable without appearing weak, weird, or woo. I can guide on making seemingly impossible ethical decisions with full awareness and ownership. Understand why fusing grief and gratitude, compassion and courage can turbocharge transformative action, be it on climate change or breakthrough innovation. Learn to use wisdom and consciousness practices to bring more wholeness and aliveness to every meeting and interaction.

Explore how conscious and wise leadership can elevate, enlighten, and ennoble others, co-creating a future worthy of their noblest aspirations.
