Sorry for the interruption. My “official” bio continues below and, fear not, it is chock full of the requisite self-aggrandizement and third person references to my many, many accolades. But before I attempt to convince you that I am the Batman of business thought leaders, let me tell you who I am in real life. I’m a dad, a husband, and a total geek about the science of human nature. My dream is to spend every working moment writing and speaking about the latest and greatest insights that help us turn unpredictable changes into meaningful and exciting adventures. So, yeah, I guess I’m living my dream. Maybe my dream and your dilemma should hook up sometime and…ya know, grab a coffee and a gluten-free bagel or something?

Now back to our regularly scheduled list of things I would never ever say to someone I just met…

Nick Tasler is an internationally acclaimed thought leader, organizational psychologist and the #1 best-selling author of four counter-intuitive books on the art and science of making decisions and leading change. He is also an expert writer for the Harvard Business Review and his work has been covered by The New York Times, Bloomberg Business Week, The Atlantic, Inc., U.S. News & World Report, The Financial Times, Fox Business, and Forbes; as well as NPR, the BBC, NBC, ABC, and CBS.

Nick’s original insights and dynamic style have benefited the world’s most respected organizations ranging from General Electric, Microsoft, JP Morgan, Novo Nordisk, Wells Fargo, the Royal Bank of Canada, and UnitedHealth Group to the Wharton School, Yale University, and many more.

Nomadic by nature, Nick and his wife and their four kids live in…lots of places. Sometimes Minnesota. Sometimes Florida. Currently Puerto Rico.


Change happens when decisions happen. Change stalls when they don’t. It really is that simple. Decisions are the most basic building blocks of growth and innovation. The more strategically and decisively leaders can get their teams to stack those blocks, the faster and more effectively the organization will adapt to disruptions, implement creative solutions, and optimize their resources. Over the last 20 years, organizational psychologist and #1 best-selling author, Nick Tasler, has helped leaders around the globe unlock their change leadership potential…one decision at a time. Nick’s flagship program has been experienced as a keynote or an interactive workshop by tens of thousands of leaders from London to Lagos, Boston to Bangkok, and San Francisco to Santiago, including everyone from Fortune 500 executives and top-producing sales teams to healthcare providers and entrepreneurs. In this exciting experience, leaders up and down the organizational hierarchy will discover how to….

  • Make good decisions faster with an elegantly simple Know-Think-Do framework.
  • Bridge the gap between strategy & execution by making 3 crystal clear decisions.
  • Use a Decision Pulse to instantly align their teams for change.
  • Leverage an “Anti-You” to quickly and easily improve snap judgments and achieve cross-functional alignment.
  • Stay in a confident, creative, and decisive mindset all day, every day. Identify and kill “important” projects that distract their teams from your most innovative solutions.
  • To use a Value-Variance Matrix to channel innovations that make your team truly unique to both your internal and external customers.

Change is hard. Failure is likely. Resistance is common. To paraphrase Mark Twain, these lies, damned lies and pseudo-statistics have gone viral in today’s breakrooms and board meetings. Some are dangerous half-truths while others are complete fabrications with zero supporting evidence. Research shows that all these bogus bromides and pithy platitudes have been scaring the shift out of talented employees and stifling organizational change for the last half century. Instead of inspiring change they have paralyzed your people. It’s time to change the way we talk about change. In this funny and fascinating talk based on organizational psychologist Nick’s groundbreaking work for Harvard Business Publishing, your team will learn how to unlock the resilient superpowers that come standard with every human brain. Through Nick’s trademark blend of counterintuitive insights, riveting stories, and cutting- edge research, he’ll take your people on an exciting journey to discover practical communication strategies and liberating personal truths that will:

  • inspire adaptation instead of intimidation
  • turn fear into focus
  • convert doubt into determination
  • transform turbulent time periods into legacy-shaping opportunities
  • help leaders stop burning platforms and start building bridges to a brighter future

After your people have shed these self-defeating beliefs and behaviors and unlocked their resilient superpowers, your team will be stronger, faster, and nimbler than ever..


Nobody is better positioned to navigate disruptive changes than the individual contributors, team leaders and project managers who make the organization move day after day. Unfortunately, many talented managers and individuals are held back by a belief that they lack the time, the budget, and the formal authority to drive powerful changes. This exciting keynote shatters that debilitating belief. Drawing on two decades of work with real people in real companies, organizational psychologist Nick Tasler shows how anyone—regardless of title or formal authority—can inspire change in their team and their organization. You’ll discover powerful tools and practical strategies like:

  • How to “shore up the core and then give them more.”
  • How to wield the Change Agent’s secret weapon: A Value-Variance Matrix.
  • How to avoid the twin sins of Promiscuous Prioritizing and Leaky Leadership.
  • How successful change agents balance passion with pragmatism.
  • How to find and fire-up vital supporters by applying two strategic super-criteria.
  • How to use an elegantly simple 3-part decision framework to maintain a confident and creative mindset all day, every day.
