Heidi Grant Halvorson is a senior consultant and researcher at the NeuroLeadership Institute and motivational psychologist. Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson has a goal: to help people and organizations achieve theirs. And with simple strategies rooted in scientific research, that’s exactly what she does, empowering organizational leaders with proven tools for maximizing commitment, resisting distraction, devising effective strategic plans, seizing opportunities to act, and persisting in the face of setbacks or challenges.
Outstanding organizations, like outstanding people, reach their goals because of what they do, not just who they are, according to Dr. Grant Halvorson. An exhaustive study of achievement and motivation has led her to pinpoint the keys to mastering the art (and science) of execution — the nine things successful people do differently. They’re not rocket science, but they are proven to help people reach their goals by focusing less on past failures and more on what really matters: commitment, planning, effort, strategy, self-control and persistence.
A provocative speaker and master motivator, Dr. Grant Halvorson offers practical and immediately actionable strategies that actually increase the chances of successfully meeting business and personal goals. By emphasizing things successful people do consistently and effectively, Halvorson shows organizations and their employees a clear path to accomplishing whatever they set out to do.
