Sunjay Nath

Sunjay Nath travels the Globe sharing insights on leadership and performance. He is best known for his trademark, “The 10-80-10 Principle” which is a framework that helps individuals and teams improve performance. This methodology combines best practices with small wins to help people empower themselves.

The framework is the synthesis of years of studying many different business models and philosophies and then distilling them into a very simple and easy to apply the framework. Some of the concepts it compasses include The Pareto Principle (The 80/20 Rule), The Gallop Research that was used in the writing of “Now Discover Your Strengths”, Sir Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion and Jack Welch’s Differentiation.

Most successful organizations use these concepts in one form or another. The 10-80-10 Principle can be used to explain why Apple is such a resounding success and how the financial meltdown occurred in 2008. It can also explain why we care more about gas prices than mortgage interest rates even though the latter has a significantly larger impact on our lives. The successful understanding and application of this principle will have a tremendous impact on the performance of any individual, team or organization.

Sunjay was a founding Vice President of an e-learning company based in Toronto that has gone on to become a multimillion-dollar company. He started an international speaking business when he was 19 and in 2005, he became the youngest Canadian (and third youngest in the world) ever to earn his CSP (Certified Speaking Professional). The CSP is the highest internationally recognized designation that a speaker can aspire to achieve.

With his background, Sunjay offers a rare combination of both left and right brain activities to engage all audience members. Sunjay holds an undergraduate degree in Mathematical Engineering, a degree that after the first year of the program, 80% of the students failed out. He also holds a Master’s in Business Administration

Sunjay is the author of The 10-80-10 Principle, The ABCs of Student Leadership, a contributing author for the book, Professionally Speaking. When not on the road, Sunjay enjoys spending time with his wife and three high energy, extremely busy sons.

  1. Covidien Times: Working from Home and Staying Sane (ish) Virtual Keynote

    Yes, we’ve all heard the clichés. “These are unprecedented times and we need to pivot!!” There
    is no doubt that things have changed and they will continue to evolve. If it is not the
    Coronavirus it’s 9-11 or the financial meltdown. As technology evolves and workplaces get
    more complicated it is now more important than ever to appreciate the new more complex
    workplaces of virtual work-from-home and traditional come to the office work teams. It is
    critical to have your organization perform at peak level.

    This virtual program offers:
    • Perspective on some of the benefits from working from home and as a result, increased
    buy in from the teams of virtual workplaces
    • Ideas on protocols to improve performance while teams are working from home
    • Solutions on how to best engage the team so that they still feel a sense of belonging and
    pride within the organization

    If you feel that your team is being sluggish or not as productive as it could be, addressing some
    of these issues can help you get refocused.

  2. The 10-80-10 Principle

    The 10-80-10 Principle is a framework that allows you to increase your performance and results by focusing your energy and efforts on highest yielding activities. Every person or group already exhibits behaviors that are Top 10 (percent) – those behaviors that lead to high performance and achievement. What people lack is the knowledge to consistently operate at that dynamic Top 10 level. The 10-80-10 Principle rewards and grows Top 10 behaviors and eliminates Bottom 10 actions. Engaging Hands on, Sunjay works with the audience to identify their Top and Bottom 10 and then A.C.T. with the 10-80-10 Principle to create greater performance levels in their lives, or within the organization.

  3. The Number One Thing That Holds Us Back

    This workshop builds part of the foundation to the 10-80-10 Principle. If we acknowledge the way our personal bias forms our opinions and biases, we can easily be trapped by our own limiting beliefs. The goal of this session is to help move people from Impossible to Possible. This is done by bringing to surface some of the ways our own assumptions lead to our personal biases. Once we are aware of this, we can learn to question the rules and boundaries, which are often self-imposed. By questioning the barriers and re-approaching from a different perception we can make what was once impossible, possible.

  4. From the Platform

    This is an experiential approach to improving Speaking Skills. The From the Platform workshop focuses on four main components of effective presentations; basics, rules, content and application with an experiential approach. Participants will be given exercises to practice and enhance their presentations skills throughout the sessions.

Excellent and inspirational message. Your 10-80-10 principle was working for me even though I had never heard of 10-80-10. When I went home, after the conference, I started to tell my son about the 10-80-10 principle. He immediately said 'that was Sunjay' and he produced one of your cards from his desk. He attended a Leadership Camp where he saw you speak 7 years ago. He remembers you and your message very well and credits you as a great source of inspiration. I could produce a list of wonderful achievements that Josiah has achieved in his young life, but I'll spare you. I simply want to thank you for speaking into my sons life, and having such a significant impact on him and his life choices.
