Jay Shetty’s Speech Topics

  • Think Like A Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day

    Inspired by Jay’s #1 New York Times Bestselling book by the same name, this talk distills the timeless wisdom that Jay learned as a monk into practical, daily steps anyone can take to live a happier, more meaningful life. This session reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits to access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us. Jay transforms abstract lessons into simple advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, sharpen focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline, and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Jay proves that everyone can — and should — think like a monk.

  • How to Find Your Purpose in The Workplace – Interactive

    One of the top challenges for executives is raising employee engagement, and for good reason. Engagement is on the decline across the world, and that spells trouble for business leaders everywhere. Today, employees are genuinely searching for meaning, purpose and fulfillment in the workplace. When each person deeply understands how they fit into the bigger picture they become more motivated to align with the company’s goals.

    With an emphasis on work-life integration, Jay understands that a separation of the two can create more stress, inevitably trickling into personal interactions. Jay guides participants into personal awareness and an understanding of their responsibility to co-create a meaningful trajectory. This highly interactive session may include the following exercises:

    • Exercise 1: Strengths Interactive – This extremely engaging activity allows participants to gain more insight about their strengths and potential. It allows them to start recognizing the dynamic nature of the workshop and become active participants rather than a passive audience. The simplest place to find purpose is in our strengths and where we naturally have impact. This is a group activity and high energy.
    • Exercise 2: Quadrant of potential – This activity allows time and space for some personal reflection. Self-awareness is a foundational element in finding your purpose. In this exercise, individuals will reflect on their personal qualities, skills, interests and weaknesses to gain a more in depth analysis of themselves. This activity helps attendees overcome the myth that purpose is only about loving what you do, it helps them recognize the value gained by doing things that they don’t necessarily enjoy.
    • Exercise 3: 3 Moments – This reflective activity allows attendees to recognize the origin stories that:
      • 1. Helped form a value/lesson
      • 2. Developed a personal strength
      • 3. Inspired a way to connect with others/how you want to make them feel
    • Exercise 4: 2 Letters: More powerful than a purpose statement, attendees will write two letters to themselves. This exercise will allow participants to hone in on the ideal compliment or testimonial that they would like to receive in life – encouraging each participant to contemplate on how much impact they created & how much value they drove. These are subconscious purpose statements, which are much more emotive.
      • What advice would you give to your younger self?
      • At age 80, what will you regret that you did not do?

    Takeaways include:

    • Understanding the scientific reasoning for purpose and meaning for a healthy life;
    • How to integrate one’s purpose with that of the company;
    • Practical techniques to give meaning to everyday activities. 
  • Why Connected Thinkers Will Rule the Future

    We’ve lived in times ruled by lawyers, doctors, and bankers. We’ve moved onto a time ruled by coders, engineers, analysts, and mathematicians for the Internet. The challenge that faces individuals today is to be a connected thinker. People who can bring together mindfulness, with modern psychology, and trending technology and use it for social impact will see limitless possibilities where others do not. Steve Jobs made calligraphy relevant to computers. Mark Zuckerberg visited an ashram in India so that he could reinforce the importance of what he and his company were trying to do. They see what others can’t see. They perceive the invisible connections. Because it’s what you don’t see that makes what you see today possible.

    The best innovators expose themselves to a broad set of human experiences; experiences that literally kick-start the creative process. The key to thinking differently is perceiving things differently. To perceive things differently, you must be exposed to divergent ideas, places, and people. This forces your brain to make connections it otherwise might miss.

    This session reveals how we can tap into our creativity and innovation through behavioral science to create more powerful futures . Jay will share case studies, stories, and exercises that enable session participants to learn more about themselves and how to begin the creative process.

    Jay’s interactive approach introduces at least three exercises to help attendees become more creative and innovative –identifying the top skills needed to thrive in 2020 –as recognized by the World Economic Forum. This session will achieve the following:

    • Understanding the four mindsets for being a leader of the future;
    • Greater collaboration between team members;
    • Enhance creative thinking amongst groups and teams;
    • Equip individuals with the tools and techniques needed to be more forward-thinking. 
  • Digital Innovation – Preparing Your Mindset for the Future

    What got us here, won’t get us there. More and more people are worried about robots taking their jobs, the rise of artificial intelligence and machine learning pose real threats to our careers and companies. How can companies redefine their mindset for the new world? What skills need to be prioritized, enhanced and focused on and what we could let go of? Jay believes the solutions for the future are sitting inside your company right now but often they’re not being asked the right questions. This session unlocks that potential.
