Workplace culture and leadership expert, best-selling author, and in-demand keynote speaker
Pairing small-town roots with worldwide experience, Eric’s refreshing, down-to-earth message helps leaders build unwavering teams.
Eric Termuende was born and raised in a small town in the Rocky Mountains Growing up in a tight-knit community, Eric would see people he knew on the streets everyday as he walked with his family. The importance of human connection and community was clear to him even then.
SOMETHING’S WRONG IN THE WORLD OF WORK
In university, Eric noticed that his peers were endlessly applying to dozens of different positions, dreaming about that perfect job that they never seemed to get. Or, they’d get what should be a ‘dream job’ and find the environment simply didn’t work for them.
They (along with what seemed to be the entire workforce) were getting disenchanted with a world of work that seemed a little different from the promise of purpose and passion they grew up expecting. Eric knew there had to be a better option.
THE CURIOSITY GROWS
After co-founding his first company, Eric set to work researching what makes a great place to work. He and his team surveyed tens of thousands of people to find out what separated incredible leaders from the rest.
He wanted to know how companies could tell a more representative story about their existing workplace experience, not to attract the best people, but the right people. Along the way came a deep understanding of leadership and what skills, actions, and characteristics help create unwavering teams.
Through this research, Eric began to wonder: what if work became something we enjoyed doing, not felt like we had to do? It was this question that formed the foundation of his first best-selling book, Rethink Work, and inspired him to pursue his passion for speaking.
SPREADING CURIOSITY THE WORD
Eric has taken the research and work he’s done with countless employees and leaders and packaged it in a way that has audiences laughing, scribbling notes, and feeling excited about a future of work that is truly impossible to predict.
