NEW KEYNOTE: Resilience: Springing to Success

We live in a VUCA world:  volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.  It’s not surprising that leaders who survive, thrive and deliver in business today have one trait in common; they are resilient.  But resilience is not just for a few; it can be learned. Mark shares how to rewire your brain to bounce back from adversity, overcome obstacles and adapt to constant change. 

Audiences will learn success strategies to create a winning mindset, increase tenacity and decision-making instinct.

Harness the Hurricane:  Adapt to Extreme Change and Achieve New Heights

Extreme change can - much like a hurricane - leave you dizzy, disoriented and dazed.  Help is at hand.  Mark's proven transition model enables people to Accept and Let Go of the past and discover new opportunities buried in the rubble.

On Fire!  Energized Together         

When individuals lose their spark, organizations lose their fire. This predicament has a devastating effect on productivity, profitability and company reputation. Mark's test-driven model of engagement equips people to identify the causes of "flame out", recognize behaviors that act as a fire extinguisher and re-ignite employee's passion for teamwork, communication and innovation.
