- Atomic Habits: How to Get 1% Better Every Day
How can you see dramatic improvement in your personal and professional life? The natural impulse is to attempt big steps to improve. However, taking big steps often results in failure or only temporary gains. You rarely see the permanent results you want. The key to successful change is in small habits. In this entertaining talk, James Clear focuses on the science of small habits, how they work, and how their effects compound and multiply over time. Through research and personal stories, audiences will not only be entertained but also come away with practical strategies they can immediately apply in their personal and professional lives.
- How to Make Motivation Last
The old way of motivating people is broken. Too often, we provide a fleeting moment of high energy while watching an inspiring video or listening to a motivational speech, only to have the feeling fade within minutes. The same is true of other motivational gimmicks from corporate incentives to gamification leaderboards. They simply don’t stick. We don’t need more inspirational feelings; we need enlightened understanding. In this talk, audience members will enjoy a series of aha moments that help them reframe the way they motivate themselves and others on a daily basis. Whether you’re trying to figure out how to motivate yourself or how to motivate a team, James talk will give you the skills and knowledge you need to sustain motivation for good.
- How to Lead in an Uncertain World
We are living in an era full of unknowns. The pace of technological change is accelerating and we are overflowing with data. In a world that shifts rapidly beneath our feet, it’s easy to become frozen in the face of uncertainty. How can we make decisions and move forward? In this talk, James Clear takes audiences on a fascinating tour of the powerful and unchanging forces that have shaped human behavior for thousands of years. You’ll learn how to make decisions, weigh options, develop strategies and thrive in an uncertain world by mastering the constant and predictable certainties of human behaviour.
- Goals Are Overrated: Execution Is Everything
Everybody wants a gold medal, but few people want to train like an Olympian. Having a goal is easy. Executing is hard. We all know how to start but few of us can finish. In the end, execution is everything. So how can you learn to execute? In this highly motivational talk, James Clear shows audiences what holds them back is rarely their ideas or goals. The real bottleneck of progress is daily habits and the systems for making them happen. Audiences will leave this talk with the tools to build the systems they need to get results they want and become finishers.
James delivered a compelling presentation about habit change and personal productivity that will influence how our students stretch themselves to pursue new opportunities. His work is clear and actionable in a way that breaks down some of the most challenging barriers that we all have to overcome. I would highly recommend James to any organization seeking to accomplish great things.

Mastermind Talks is an invite-only event for high-level executives, CEOs, and startup founders. It’s a demanding and intelligent audience. I was lucky enough to have James lead a roundtable session at our event, and to date it has not only been our most attended roundtable, but the highest rated by our audience as well. I am blessed to be in the position where I have access to a deep pool of some of the most well-known thought leaders of our time. When it comes to habits, James is the first expert that comes to mind. I would have James back at our event in a heartbeat. I can’t recommend working with him enough.
James is a strong, confident facilitator and his message was easily understood by the audience. He did a great job teaching and facilitating a conversation with our group about habits. It was a great experience and our team got a lot of valuable ideas from the time spent.
