Keynote Topics

In this talk, Jonas Koffler looks at the phenomenon of Hustle, the zeitgeist driving ambition, confidence, and innovation on the one hand, and the dangers of overcommitment and even burnout on the other. It’s a delicate balance, and when done right, smart hustle leads to incredible benefits and breakthroughs.

Hustle is derived from the old Middle Dutch word, Hutselen, which means “to shake” as in to shake free and begin anew. Hence, Hustle is about shaking free of the old, shaking free to change things for the better, to reinvent ourselves, our work and our company, what we and how we do it.

Hustle implies movement toward a goal, however indirect, by which the motion itself manufactures luck, surfaces hidden opportunities, and charges our lives with more money, meaning, and momentum. It’s the way of bettering of our life and work as we know it, and revealing purpose in the process.

And that means, ultimately, building a deepened capacity for movement toward growth, change, and resilience — as individuals, teams, and organizations. Jonas Koffler use entrepreneurial hustle as a vehicle in the spirit of movement, shaking up the status quo and improving everything we do.

In this talk, Jonas Koffler shows you how to develop empathy as your organizational connective tissue. Empathy is a superpower unlike any other. Using experiments as proving ground and experiences as collaborative deep dives, we will harness the power of active listening and attention, problem-solving and awareness, and addressing the care of concerns of one another.

Whether you run a company, a school or an event, taking stock of your community, starts surprisingly, with authenticity, sharing and vulnerability. These enable you to take better care of yourself, your team, and your customers. This alignment improves your bottom line, goodwill, and ability to grow.

Empathy: understanding and respecting one another, making people feel something bigger than themselves… reminding them they are part of something special, always an important individual and contributor in a broader communal mix of work, life, love, and human potential.

Experimentation: taking simple risks and placing small bets on our innovation to ensure that we improve everything we do for ourselves, our team and our organization.

Experience: leveraging the personal and professional context to create a story that’s deeply memorable, unique, inspirational and share-worthy.

If we include all three of these E words, we have something very special, thoughtful, heartfelt, inclusive and whole – that’s what makes life worth living, and it’s what makes community possible.

In this talk, Jonas Koffler explains the obstacles to a healthy and happy work culture, and how to transform your business, workplace, or coworking space into a more positive place where ambition, creative thinking, and supportive collaboration flourish.

A key part of enhancing your company’s experience is focusing on the developmental wellbeing (motivational, inspirational, physical, financial) of your team through a vastly improved learning environment, and introducing active coaching and mentoring programs.

In addition, Jonas Koffler shares key research and trends shaping workplace productivity, collaboration, human potential, and happiness.
