Mark Murphy


I am the founder of Leadership IQ, keynote speaker, leadership researcher, and developer of the online “Science of Leadership Academy.” I am the author of five books, including the New York Times bestseller "Hundred Percenters: Challenge Your People to Give It Their All and They’ll Give You Even More." My prior book, "Hiring for Attitude," was chosen as a top business book by CNBC. Some of my most well-known research studies include “Are SMART Goals Dumb?,” “Why CEO's Get Fired,” “Why New Hires Fail,” “High Performers Can Be Less Engaged,” and “Don’t Expect Layoff Survivors to Be Grateful.” I’ve lectured at The United Nations, Harvard Business School, Microsoft, Merck, MasterCard, Charles Schwab, Aflac and hundreds more.

I solve the “people pain points” that keep leaders awake at night.
