Adam Kingl Speaking Topics

  • CREATIVITY FOR LEADERS: HOW TO RADICALLY ENHANCE INNOVATION IN YOUR TEAM

    With a background in both the arts and business, Adam has researched the most successful leaders in creative fields and applied their habits, processes and dynamics to leadership principles for any industry to increase an organiZation’s creativity, innovation, adaptability and inspiration. He explores ‘micro-habits’, day to day interactions, tips and exercises to enhance creativity in ways that can be applied immediately and do not require massive investment of resources. These leadership lessons are derived from enormously fun examples from Carnegie Hall, writing, television, Broadway theatre, culinary arts, painting and amusement park ride design. Audiences will be inspired and tickled by Adam’s approach, which manages to communicate profound ideas in light-hearted ways.

  • THE EVOLUTION OF CAPITALISM

    From Shareholders to Stakeholders In August 2019, Chief Executives from the Business Roundtable, including those from Apple and JPMorgan Chase, argued that companies should no longer advance only the interests of shareholders. The shift comes at a moment of increasing distress in the corporate world amidst global discontent over income inequality, sustainability and substandard quality of work-life. Business as usual is no longer acceptable. Though this shift seems unique, history shows us that capitalism has evolved numerous times over the centuries. At this inflection point, what can businesses do to survive and thrive, and who are the bellwethers to listen to within our organisations?

  • A RETURN TO HUMAN-CENTRIC LEADERSHIP

    In company life, we are returning, on a several-hundred year cycle, to the pre-eminence of humanity at the centre of what it means to lead. ‘Focusing on humanity’ implies recalling what followers notice first in their leaders – their behaviours. Then, we have to ask if those behaviours provide clarity, inspiration, engagement, coherence and enable creativity. The Renaissance was a flowering not only of the arts but of commerce, and the interdependency of those two forces. Are we in the midst of a new Renaissance of leadership that is asking us what it means to be human?

  • MANAGEMENT INNOVATION

    Are Your Management Principles Fit For The 21st Century? Over the last century, business has modernised it almost every way except for how it organises, leads, coordinates and motivates its people. Yes, those organisations who have innovated their act of management are celebrated as pioneers and leaders in their respective industries. It is possible for every business to develop a formal method for reinventing its management, just as it has done for products and processes for decades. Management breakthroughs can deliver incredibly powerful competitive advantages that are more sustainable and of a larger scale than any other creative act.

  • STRATEGIC INNOVATION

    Disrupting Your Industry with New Business Models. We often hear about innovation in the context of inventing new products or services. One of the innovation levers of senior executives, one which can be even more powerful in transforming business success, is reinventing one’s business model. While the implications of strategic innovation can be profound, the process of identifying the industry-disruptive idea that reinventing one’s business can be very simple and approachable – it’s a matter of having different and better conversations. We will explore how to do so.

  • GENERATION Y PARADIGMS OF WORK & LEADERSHIP

    There has been plenty of literature and discussion on ‘how to manage Gen Ys’. If their paradigms of work and ‘how to be led’ are indeed very different to those of their managers of earlier generations, then surely how Gen Ys will lead their organisations in the near future will look and feel new. Therefore, the nature of work and leadership is about to change in fundamental ways.
