The Exceptional Impact of a Brilliant Culture – Curating High Performance Company Cultures Where High Achievers Thrive

High Achievers outperform the average worker in productivity (14%), sales (18%), and profitability (23%), according to research. However, 8 of 10 employees worldwide are not engaged in their work, leaving only 2 of 10 involved in and enthusiastic about what they do. This is a wake-up call for Founders and Leaders as culture impacts everything from productivity, engagement, and customer loyalty, to the speed of innovation, retention of talent, growth, and, of course, profitability. It’s time to reimagine the workplace, starting with a culture where people come first.

Culture as Your Silver Bullet Designing and Scaling High Performing Company Cultures as a Founder and Leader

Culturally-driven companies have 18% more revenue per employee than the average. And culture can intentionally be designed. As the saying goes, “culture eats strategy for breakfast,” so how do you keep your people and culture on track while doubling or tripling your company every 12 months?

The High Achiever Culture Strategically Leading, Investing in, and Championing Your High Achievers

High Achievers thrive alongside fellow High Achievers, and they attract each other. They are looking for the freedom to perform and thrive in deep alignment with your company’s vision. However, a lack of leadership capabilities costs U.S. corporations up to $550 billion annually, according to research. In many companies where the 9-to-5 factory model still continues, the mentality that every hour carries the same value is still very persistent. However, most employees no longer work in a factory environment, and it’s been proven that using old models in modern companies leads to old results. It’s time to reimagine the workplace in the age of High Achievers.

Growing and Magnifying Your Dream Teams – Creating a Thriving Future with Culture-Based Recruitment

High Achievers outperform the average worker by 14% in productivity, 18% in sales, and 23% in profitability, according to research. These High Achievers care deeply about your company’s success and together achieve the majority of your positive results. They thrive alongside fellow High Achievers, and they attract each other, which can be a game-changer for your company. Today’s High Achievers are increasingly driven by purpose, the desire to excel, and the opportunity to contribute. They seek impact and greatness and look for companies with values that align with their own. So, how do you attract them?

Lifestyle Design – Living a life with Purpose, Achievement, Fulfillment, Impact, and Contribution

High Achievers outperform the average worker by 14% in productivity, 18% in sales, and 23% in profitability, according to research. Supporting and leading these top performers holds tremendous potential for impacting your entire organization, but how well they perform varies depending on the culture they are in. Fortunately, it’s possible to design and scale people and purpose-centric cultures where these exceptional achievers can thrive.

MAPPED Brilliance – Achieve Greatness and Amplify Impact with the High Achiever Mindset

How do High Achievers continuously achieve the seemingly impossible? How do they challenge the status quo so effectively? How do they effortlessly amplify their impact? It all starts with recognizing the power of fully embracing the High Achieving Mindset.

The Unconventional Path – From Surviving to Thriving as a Trailblazer

Is it possible to experience a deep sense of accomplishment at the end of each day even when the world is crazy? Can the daily grind be a source of happiness and fulfillment even in times of challenge? Can you live a designed life of purpose and values instead of following traditional pre-decided paths?

The answer is… Yes, of course! Just as in the movie The Matrix, limitations are only in our minds. “There is no spoon.” And, just as there isn’t a single definition of success or living a fulfilled life, there are multiple paths to greatness which can be designed and made your own.

It’s time to reimagine the workplace, starting with a culture where people come first.

 

Combining 20 years of experience as a Founder, Future of Work Expert and CEO of Reimaginez, Therese Gedda has positively impacted 30,000+ company cultures and worked with 1,000+ founders, CEOs and investors worldwide. Through her work in helping companies to thrive she has developed actionable and scalable frameworks and methods for championing High Achievers.

Two of these frameworks include The High Achieving Culture Model™ and the Futuristic Leadership Framework™, which are focused on building and scaling people and purpose-centric cultures successfully.

 

While technology is often the focus within the Future of Work today, championing a people-first mindset is the key to promoting a lasting and transformative change in the workplace. The time has come for modern companies to leave old and ineffective methods like factory-based micro-management behind and embrace a more visionary approach: an approach that is based on a people and purpose-centric philosophy that understands the needs and wants of the High Achievers of today and the High Potentials of tomorrow.

 

Through this keynote, you will learn strategies for effectively championing your best people, removing toxicity, and amplifying your impact by designing and scaling a high-performing culture.

Combining 20 years of experience as an award-winning Founder, CEO of Reimaginez, and Cultural Expert, Therese Gedda has developed actionable and scalable frameworks and methods to successfully build and scale people and purpose-centric cultures. Some frameworks include the High Achieving Culture Model™ and the Futuristic Leadership Framework™, supporting companies to thrive by empowering their High Achievers. She has positively impacted 30,000+ cultures and worked with 1000+ founders, CEOs, and investors, who often refer to her as “Master Teacher,” “Founder Therapist,” and “Yoda.”

Why focus on culture while you are growing so quickly and already have a million things on your plate? Because culture is the glue — the silver bullet. It is a way to align people with shared values to support each other in overcoming challenges and achieving ambitious goals in an efficient and meaningful way. It impacts everything from productivity, engagement, and customer loyalty to talent retention, speed of innovation, growth, and, of course, profitability. And the issue is, if you are not actively investing in your culture, you are at risk of ending up with a mediocre culture or, even worse, a toxic one. By intentionally designing a thriving people and purpose-centric culture, you can successfully scale your company even during hyper-growth.

 

In this keynote, you will learn how to align your people around your vision, effectively champion your best people, remove toxicity, and amplify your impact by designing and scaling a high-performing culture.

 

 

The High Achiever Culture

Strategically Leading, Investing in, and Championing Your High Achievers

The Future of Work and Company Culture

High Achievers thrive alongside fellow High Achievers, and they attract each other. They are looking for the freedom to perform and thrive in deep alignment with your company’s vision.

Two of these frameworks include the High Achieving Culture Model™ and the Futuristic Leadership Framework™, which are specifically designed to build and scale people and purpose-centric cultures successfully.

 

In uncertain times, investing in a thriving culture with well-working processes and leading high performers with maximum impact is more important than ever to stay competitive. Instead of archaic, factory-based micromanagement models that drive away High Achievers, you can truly support your stars by embracing a more modern leadership approach. We call it Futuristic Leadership, and it is designed to attract and keep the highest performers today and tomorrow. Investing in cultural and behavioral design is part of the solution, but so is investing in your leaders.

 

In this keynote, you will learn how to elevate your culture by empowering your current leaders, developing and leading your High Achievers, boosting their performance, and helping them thrive through the leadership philosophies of tomorrow.

Through her work in helping these companies to thrive, she has developed several actionable and scalable frameworks and methods for championing High Achievers. Two of these frameworks include the High Achieving Culture Model™ and The People and Purpose Centric Recruit on Culture Framework™, which are specifically designed to grow and scale people and purpose-centric cultures successfully.

 

Curating a people and purpose-driven culture is the bedrock of a thriving company. However, without scalable and future-oriented methods for systematically attracting and keeping High Achievers who share the same values and mindset as your company, you risk ending up with low engagement across the company and with your best people leaving. Or even worse, attracting toxicity into your company, jeopardizing everything you have built.

In this keynote, you will learn how to approach recruitment based on a framework focused on values and mindset first, identifying people with untapped potential and talent, and attracting value-aligned and high-performing people to your company.

For over two decades, Therese Gedda has been designing and scaling thriving company cultures. She has worked directly with over 1,000+ founders, CEOs, and executives over the years, and she is often referred to as “Yoda,” “Master Teacher,” and “Founder Therapist” by founders and CEOs. As an award-winning entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of Reimaginez, she’s inspired tens of thousands of people worldwide and has been recognized in NBC News, Fortune, Nasdaq, and VentureBeat.

Therese has also been named by the Nordic 100 as one of the most influential and impactful entrepreneurs from the Nordics and received the Future Innovator Award given in memory of Alfred Nobel. 

 

High Achievers generally have a high sense of self-awareness and drive to achieve a daily sense of accomplishment, supporting them through advanced lifestyle design can truly elevate both their performance and well-being. Part of this process includes empowering them to move outside their comfort zone by deepening their awareness about their values, style of work, and the rhythm of their body clock, to name a few. Furthermore, successfully empowering all High Achievers is a matter of moving away from more generic philosophies of work-life balance and “one size fits all” concepts to a more personalized approach. Advanced Lifestyle Design recognizes that when High Achievers are in flow, they are unstoppable; when they are at their most creative, they come up with groundbreaking ideas; and when they thrive, they achieve greatness.

 

In this keynote, you will be invited to explore how when leading yourself and others, to let purpose influence your goals, your goals guide your plans, your plans design your habits, your habits empower your thoughts, and your thoughts amplify your impact – explore the power of value-based lifestyle design and experience greater fulfillment, direction, and achievement.

High Achievers and Mindset

How do High Achievers continuously achieve the seemingly impossible? How do they challenge the status quo so effectively? How do they effortlessly amplify their impact? It all starts with recognizing the power of fully embracing the High Achieving Mindset.

 

For over two decades, Therese Gedda has worked directly with over 1,000 founders, CEOs, and investors, who often refer to her as “Yoda,” “Master Teacher,” and “Founder Therapist.” She has developed actionable and scalable frameworks and methods to help High Achievers thrive in their own paths, including MAPPED Brilliance™ and Advanced Lifestyle Design™. As an award-winning entrepreneur and Founder and CEO of Reimaginez, she has been recognized in NBC News, Fortune, Nasdaq, and VentureBeat.

Therese has also been named by the Nordic 100 as one of the most influential and impactful entrepreneurs from the Nordics and received the Future Innovator Award, given in memory of Alfred Nobel.

 

Having a North Star guiding your path is essential, but to truly thrive, it takes more than that. In order to achieve something you have never achieved before, you need to embrace the idea that settling is the enemy of reaching new heights. And, in moments of doubt, the High Achiever Mindset can help carry you through. By embracing your own thriving and purpose-oriented lifestyle, you will be able to more easily pursue what deeply matters to you.

 

Through this keynote, you will learn how to tap into your brilliance, build forward momentum through a sense of achievement, and design an environment in alignment with your values and goals to help you thrive while achieving the seemingly impossible.
