Karl Staib speaking

How would you feel if you could help people make a bigger impact at work?

If you want a speaker that will inspire people to unlock their superpowers then I can help. I tell stories from my own experiences that will help people connect with their own working lives. But I don’t just tell stories and leave. I also give actionable tools that they can start using right away.

“Karl brought his A-game to the Pioneer Nation crowd. People left feeling inspired—and more importantly, they knew what steps to take to grow their career.”

– Chris Guillebeau of World Domination Summit and Pioneer Nation

I believe work happiness comes from good relationships. It’s about encouraging people to connect with people they can help and can help them. When they know that it’s up to each individual to make themselves happy they stop being pushed around by people and circumstances and start taking action to improve their relationships, work and life.

Here is clip from my presentation I did with Philips Global.

People are happy when they are:

  • Having fun (Satisfying their curiosity through work).
  • They have friends at work who support and encourage them.
  • Know what they are doing is for a larger purpose.

My Goals

I want your people to walk away with a better understanding of how they can unleash their happiness in their job to improve communication and productivity. Too often we focus on just our strengths and forget to step back and understand the larger picture. How we fit in with our work and the people around us.

It all starts with your why. If you don’t understand your why your passion for work will be flat. It won’t matter how focused you are and how you are able to leverage your strengths.

Everyone deserves to do work that they care about and work with good people. The only way that will happen is each person takes it upon themselves to create a happier and more productive workplace.

My One Goal:

  1. Unlock your career happiness so you can be more productive and more successful at work.

Topics I Speak About

  1. Unlock Your Career Happiness – Live your passions, harness your focus, and leverage your strengths to bring more happiness and success to your career.
  2. Find Your Superhero Team – People who compliment your superpowers so you can leverage their superpowers and they can leverage your superpowers so you grow your careers together.
  3. Don’t Let the Happy Plane Take off Without You – Find your happiness, communicate better, and do great work.
  4. Supercharge Your Creativity – Relax your desire for a solution, lower your stress, and develop ideas as a team.
  5. Develop Your Goose Formation System – As a leader you know engaged employees are amazing, so let’s empower your employees to make the company better.


Your company has an opportunity to show your employees that you embrace a culture that promotes fun. When you do this, your employees will become more engaged and happier at work. I’ve worked for companies that were afraid to let people be their true selves, and it was awful. The employees were in a sour mood and this trickled down to the customers. Call me for a virtual Happy at Work seminar and watch how your people respond. They will learn to treat each other better, promote team work and become more productive. They won’t mind going that extra mile because they will recognize how important it is to pass on their happiness to the customer.

My Specialty: creating a fun session that gives your people actionable ideas that they can use today. I encourage attendees to think about the importance of treating each other with respect as well as giving the customer the type of happy service that makes them spread the word about your business.

“I would highly recommend it to my co-workers to check out his presentation. Especially to my colleagues who are administrators.” – Katie Teitelman of Country Home Learning Center

I love speaking to organizations about creating an environment that encourages happiness. Employees are happy when they can build positive relationships and enjoy the freedom to do great work. This can be achieved by improving communication, building processes that support employees, and allowing employees to improve the company. My specialty is: Every company wants employees who will be with them through thick and thin. The best way to create this attitude is to help someone develop  at work. That means helping people work on their personal growth, career development and emotional intelligence. This in turn will lead to positive results on the bottom line.

Seminars and Workshops

Leading a fun, interactive workshop with your organization is a great way to teach ideas that will last. I can’t stand workshops in which the speaker just talks to an audience who is barely listening. I make sure my workshops are filled with laughter, hands-on participation, and learning. I believe that people learn best when they are happy. I conduct one and two hour workshops that will help your people appreciate each other, improve their communication, and foster happiness that is passed on to the customer as well. My specialty is: Communication – Building strong relationships that encourage people to develop their potential to achieve the results that make them happy at work and excited for more.
