Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton are trailblazing voices in leadership strategy. With a legacy spanning over two decades, they've been the guiding force behind organizations transitioning to high-performance cultures. Their mission? Offering game-changing solutions for visionary leaders eager to amplify employee engagement, foster unparalleled teamwork, and champion gratitude. As the founders of The Culture Works, a leading global consultancy, they've penned multiple New York Times bestsellers including All In, The Carrot Principle, Leading with Gratitude, and Anxiety at Work. Across titles, their books have sold more than 1.6 million copies worldwide. Fortune has labeled their work "fascinating," while the New York Times found them "innovative and refreshing." As proud founding members of the Marshall Goldsmith 100 Coaches initiative and hosts of the popular podcast Anxiety at Work, they have clinched spots in the Top 10 Global Gurus in both Leadership and Organizational Culture categories.
Chester Elton, dubbed the apostle of appreciation by the Globe & Mail, is coauthor of the bestselling Carrot books and co-founder of The Culture Works. He was previously O.C. Tanner's lead recognition consultant and researcher. He appears weekly on WCBS radio's Building Better Places to Work segment, broadcast to 130 stations in the top 50 US media markets.
