Erin Hatzikostas

Tagline: Authentic Leadership

Talent Highlights

  • There’s no doubt we still have a ginormous gender gap at the top of the leadership ladder. However, we often ignore the biggest issue: women aren’t being held down, they’re opting down.
  • Women often fear they’ll have to compromise to rise – compromise their family, their health, or even their soul. As a result, we don’t lean into the big girl job.
  • Erin won’t encourage you to lean in, but rather to lean in a totally different way.
  • She’ll bust down the “Sucky Songs” women often sing to themselves and inspire you to rewrite them by using authenticity as your new secret weapon for success.
  • Using her framework, “The Six Principles of Strategic Authenticity (H.U.M.A.N.S.)”, Erin will show you how authenticity isn’t some fluffy unicorn doo-doo, but rather an actionable strategy you can enact immediately.
  • Her talk will inspire you to change the job – and the entire game – so you can opt up, without selling out!

Once Upon a Sale: How to Use the Power of Storytelling as Your New Sales Playbook

My Uncle Bob tells the story time and time again of his greatest coaching moment. Long story short, unlike any other dad out there, he coached my 3 year-old cousin to keep running until he got to trees way in the distance.

And not that Easter egg hunts have winners, but…Matthew won.

All of us are in one big Easter egg hunt. Or race to capture the attention, trust and wallets of companies and consumers. Sadly, many companies (and their marketing, product, sales, everything teams) are missing out on the single most powerful sales tool – storytelling.

In this talk, Erin Hatzikostas will persuade you to obsess over using stories in everything you do. She’ll highlight research, case studies and…well…likely tell lots of stories!

Things you’ll learn: 

  • ​Understand the neuroscience behind why storytelling is so powerful.
  • Learn about other companies’ turnarounds and success after embracing storytelling.
  • Be able to understand the most important building blocks for a real and effective story.
  • The numerous places where you can infuse storytelling (and no, it’s not just in a sales meeting)
  • Start building your own story “library.”

Women, Don’t Change for the Job.

Instead, Change the Job.

​There’s no doubt we still have a ginormous gender gap at the top of the leadership ladder. However, we often ignore the biggest issue: women aren’t being held down, they’re opting down. 

In this talk, Erin Hatzikostas won’t encourage you to lean in, but rather to lean in a totally different way. She’ll bust down the “Sucky Songs” women often sing to themselves and inspire you to rewrite them by using authenticity as your new secret weapon for success. 

Using her framework, “The Six Principles of Strategic Authenticity (H.U.M.A.N.S.)”, Erin will show you how authenticity isn’t some fluffy unicorn doo-doo, but rather an actionable strategy you can enact immediately. Her talk will inspire you to change the job – and the entire game – so you can opt up, without selling out!

Things you’ll learn: 

  • Understand the common “Sucky Songs” that often hold people, especially women, back from rising in their career.
  • Realize that authenticity is more than a permission, it’s a power.
  • Begin to start seeing authenticity as an active strategy that you can use to increase connections, trust, and intrigue.
  • Learn a practical framework (H.U.M.A.N.S) you can use to put authenticity into motion immediately.
  • Activate your own “Authenticity Playbook” with some simple starter “plays.”
