Habits Expert and New York Times bestselling author of Atomic Habits, James Clear, is BigSpeak’s newest Exclusive Speaker. He has dedicated himself to answering one driving question–how can we live better?
All of his research has led him to create the science of habit forming and breaking and using habits to their greatest potential. He founded The Habits Academy which focuses on training oneself to take small actions that will have large impacts on your success in life. His bestselling book Atomic Habits helps you create systems where “good habits emerge naturally, and unwanted habits fade away.”
Atomic Habits has sold over 300,000 copies in the first 3 months, ranks on the New York Times list at #2 in Business and #5 in Advice/How-To. The book has made the New York Times bestseller’s list every month since it’s launch. Atomic Habits was also a finalist for Goodreads’ Best Nonfiction Book of the Year.
James doesn’t merely report the research of others. He tries out the concepts for himself as he experiments with building better habits as an entrepreneur, writer, and weightlifter. In the end, his talks end up being one-part storytelling, one-part academic research, and one-part personal experiment, forming a colorful blend of inspirational stories, academic science, and hard-earned wisdom.
His thought leadership regularly appears in the New York Times, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Medium, and Time, and he is a regular guest for CBS This Morning. In addition, he helps millions of visitors each month through his website and hundreds of thousands subscribe through his popular email newsletter.
He is a regular speaker at Fortune 500 companies and his work has been used by teams in the NFL, NBA, and MLB. Through his online course, The Habits Academy, Clear has taught more than 10,000 leaders, managers, coaches, and teachers how to improve.
In his keynote, Atomic Habits: How to Get 1% Better Everyday, Clear expands on the principles that propel successful habit-forming. 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.
James 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.
