A little about what I do.
I help you make sense of how the world of work is changing through my books, articles, and blogs.
Whether through a keynote or a workshop, I’ll leave you feeling more ready to change the world than before we started.
Not literally. But if you’re a leader or entrepreneur, I will help you know how to get where you want to go.
Every organization and every person has magic—some kind of genius, some uniqueness, some brilliance. I help find it.
You want to know how theory and research informs new behaviors at work; I help connect the dots.
I help you leverage macro trends, see the big-picture strategy, and always remember long-term impact.
Stuff I'm thinking about.
Originally posted on my consulting firm’s website. We often bump into the idea that the kind of work we do at Forte is perceived as “warm and fuzzy” by businesspeople.

“Our members were riveted by Josh’s topic and engaged by his style, but mostly we were really inspired to reach out and make real changes in the way we are doing work. We all became passionately enrolled and are actively seeking new ways to reach out and make a bigger difference with our clients and in our communities.”
“Josh’s presentation was engaging and thought-provoking. He presented his theory in a visually stimulating and provocative manner. He challenged participants to re-think their current paradigms and consider alternative ways to get results in the new reality we live in. I recommend Josh for any group that desires to thrive in our ever-changing world.”

“Josh’s presentation was inspiring! His teaching style captivated our attention from beginning to end, and he expertly presented the case for turning conventional wisdom on its head. I have already applied much of what I learned from him in several areas of my life.”

“I found Josh’s presentation very interesting, dynamic and thought-provoking. He presented original ideas and engaged the participants in a way that made the session very interactive and enjoyable.

“Josh has identified, and is able to clearly illustrate, a key game-changing concept that allows individuals to obtain competitive advantages in the dynamic world in which we live. If you feel stagnant in your career or, worse, fearful of how changes in our society could lead to your displacement, I recommend connecting with Josh.”
