How do employees reach that next level in their career? Baseline talent gets everyone in the game. Then people begin to compete for advancement and factors such as likeability and trust influence who is promoted into senior roles. Susan Packard, co-founder of HGTV, lays out an approach to help your employees succeed called gamesmanship-a strategic way of thinking, as well as a language of business to help people advance. We are taught that ‘winning’ at work means collaboration and perfecting what we do. But these two drivers are not always the best way to move forward. Through a dynamic and down-to-earth approach, Packard lays out the rules of gamesmanship, based on her upcoming book, New Rules of the Game, and illustrates how employees can better compete for promotions and plum assignments by speaking an alternative language, as well as how they can handle the many stresses that come with being in the workplace.

Testimonials

Susan Packard is the speaker you always look for, but rarely find. She is articulate, dynamic and powerful, yet incredibly down-to-earth and approachable. She has a track record as a proven and powerful leader. She brings a keen mind and intellectual curiosity to her continuing studies of leadership. She informed us, entertained us, and challenged us. She took the time and made the effort to perfectly tailor her presentation to the executives and professionals in the audience. Our audience was so impressed by her presentation that we invited her back to return as our keynote speaker at our Annual Symposium, and once again she received rave reviews. Susan delivers a message that is stimulating, inspiring and practical, with numerous “takeaways” that the audience can use to improve their effectiveness as leaders in their own organizations. I wish I could find more “Susan Packards” for every symposium.

President/CEO, Arizona Women's Leadership Forum

Susan Packard was terrific!! Everyone enjoyed her presentation immensely. She was extremely personable and patient with all the photo’s requests made of her and all the books she signed. Many of the guests thought she was the best speaker we had ever had ( and we have been hosting this luncheon for 33 years). She reached out and met so many people easily and was truly a delight to host in our market. Thank you for suggesting her and for all your efforts on our behalf.
