James Adonis's Biography

James Adonis is one of Australia's most well known people management thinkers. He is a leading international expert on employee engagement, and the co-founder and managing director of Team Leaders - a company dedicated to developing the very best frontline managers.

 

By the time he was 24, James was managing a team of 100. His major achievements have included taking a team that had employee turnover exceeding 70 per cent and reducing it to zero where it was maintained for two years. He has also achieved employee engagement results that have surpassed not only the industry standard, but also world's best practice. Another of his teams achieved its key performance indicators for an unprecedented 100 consecutive weeks.

 

James's articles and research are regularly published in many countries and he is frequently featured in the media as a thought leader on people management. As a nationally syndicated writer with the Fairfax group of news publications - such as The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age - James's original thoughts are read by tens of thousands of managers and business owners every week.

 

He is the author of three books including his latest, Corporate Punishment: Smashing the management clichés for leaders in a new world. His two previous books were Employee Enragement: Why people hate working for you, and Love Your Team: How to halve your employee turnover in less than 90 days.

 

Thought-provoking and entertaining, James's keynote presentations and workshops show companies how to solve staff turnover, engage all generations, and win the war for talent. A truly international keynote speaker, he has presented to audiences in Australia, New Zealand, India, Dubai, Thailand, Malaysia, Germany, and Belgium, with an impressive list of clients including McDonald's, American Express, Coca-Cola, Qantas, Gucci, and many government departments.

 

In 2008, James was the President of the National Speakers Association of Australia (NSW Chapter) - the youngest person in the history of the Association to hold such an honour.

 

Engaging. Entertaining. Thought-provoking. These are the three words most commonly used to describe James's presentations and workshops. Packed full of information and delivered with humour, persuasiveness, and energy, your audience will think differently, behave authentically, and become advocates for employee engagement in the workplace.

With presentations and workshops delivered in many countries and to audiences ranging from front-line employees to CEOs and everyone in between, James doesn't just educate. He stimulates, challenges, and inspires managers to understand and embrace the immensely influential role they play within their teams.
