Jessica Kriegel (KREE-GL) is a workplace culture strategist. She is a Doctor of Leadership & Management and Fortune 100 Thought Leader. She is a dynamic speaker, consultant, Co-Active coach, and is author of Unfairly Labeled: How Your Workplace Can Benefit from Ditching Generational Stereotypes and upcoming book, The Culture Equation.

For 15+ years, Jessica has been guiding global, national, Fortune 100 and other organizations on how to create intentional cultures that power your strategy and accelerate performance.

After she got her MBA and became a global consultant for a human capital management solutions provider, Jessica consistently saw highly-stressed leaders failing to deliver against lofty financial goals. She knew that if these leaders could transform their cultures, performance and profitability would follow. But, because culture is often viewed as ‘woo’ and an intangible, these leaders didn’t know where to begin.

So, Jessica set out on a personal mission to ‘quantify culture’.

Her unique ability to analyze organizations in qualitative and quantitative terms and create measurable growth across all levels has made her the go-to ally for global leaders and teams.

This program is perfect for organizational leaders who are:

  • Overwhelmed by the push and pull of the urgent day to day deliverables vs. the long-term health of the organization.

How Unconscious Bias Gets In the Way of Creating The Culture You Want

The key to building intentional culture that drives performance is understanding how our unconscious bias is enemy #1

Leaders struggle to create the culture they want because they do not realize how their own and their teams’ bias is working against them. Jessica educates her audience on the signs and symptoms of unconscious bias, and provides practical tools for leaders to overcome their own unconscious bias.

This program is perfect for organizational leaders who are:

  • Striving to create a culture that supports the business goals, but struggling to get the expected results.

  • A framework for overcoming unconscious bias within your organization.
  • Steps for creating the culture you want despite the obstacle of unconscious bias in your way.

Make Your Strategy Work On The Frontline

When we lose our why, we lose our way. Ensuring your strategy works for everyone

Global studies show that only 5% of employees understand their company strategy. This is because strategy creation has traditionally been an absent or insular habit – and as a result, strategy execution fails. In this keynote, Jessica shares a framework for a strategy that gives everyone in the organization a ‘why’ as well as metrics to measure success.

This program is perfect for organizational leaders who:

  • Either don’t have a strategy, or have a strategy that isn’t accelerating performance and driving culture
  • Think they could leverage their strategy for added value if only they knew how
  • Understand the importance of a strategy that includes everything from the why to the metrics to measure success.

The audience will leave with:

  • An inspired perspective that managing and championing culture transformation is entirely possible and even simple.
  •  Steps to cultivate an intentional culture that powers your business strategy and accelerates performance.
  • The roadmap, education, and motivation to take the first step to be becoming a champion of The Culture Equation.
