Most Popular: Challenge Your Assumptions and Change Your World: Turn Your Assumptions Into Opportunities  

“It can’t be done”. “The client will never buy it”. “This is not the way we do it around here”. “It’ll never work.” These are samples of the hundreds of the assumptions that act as barriers to change and growth. Yet these same assumptions can be turned around to create new opportunities, drive better solutions and smarter decisions.

The process for doing this is called “The Assumpt!

The Assumpt! is an innovative and hands-on way of thinking about successfully managing assumptions instead of assumptions managing you. This keynote helps organizations and its people identify the unseen assumptions that stand in the way of success and then provide the tools to turn those dangerous assumptions into Assumpts! that enhance their ability to lead teams, boost sales and launch new product successes.  

New Talk: Challenge Your Cyber Assumptions, Change Your Cyber World  

When you move from the physical to the digital world, the rules change. Unfortunately, it’s human nature to assume that they stay the same. This directly affects an organization’s ability to make faster, better decisions in cybersecurity. This dynamic keynote explores how within every cyber decision lies an assumption.   

Based on Andy Cohen’s new book, Challenge Your Assumptions, Change Your World, he provides the mechanisms for learning how to identify potentially dangerous assumptions that act as barriers to security and turn those same assumptions into opportunities to adapt, innovate and defend. This talk provides the tools that allow CEOs, CIOs, Senior Engineers and Team Leaders to move out of their comfort zones, break through the status quo, and align their thinking to uncover key solutions in this new cyber frontier.   

Target Audience: Military, Government Services, Corporations, Organizational Employees and Cyber Security Firms 

Marketing and Sales Classic: Follow The Other Hand – How to Pivot Your Product, Service or Team to Adapt, Change & Grow  

We are living in an exponentially accelerating world in which the fundamentals of technology, business and society are shifting on a daily basis. To adapt and cope we are becoming increasingly dependent on our assumptions to speed the decision-making process and to keep things moving. The danger is when we treat those assumptions as truths rather than beliefs. “Follow the Other Hand” is based on Andy’s New York Times Notable book. 

“Follow The Other Hand” shows you how to turn those dangerous assumptions into opportunities. This dynamic session offers strategies and tools to pivot and shift perspective in midstream by identifying and challenging dangerous assumptions which act as barriers to change and hinder an organization’s ability to think and act differently.

This one of a kind interactive experience is designed for senior leaders and their teams which are seeking to unlock unproductive behaviors and processes generated by dangerous assumptions such as “That’s the way we do it around here,” “we don’t have the time or resources to change,” or “there’s only one way to do it.”    

Through personal stories, executive interviews, and business case histories you will discover effective tools to break through the barriers holding your organization back from making the changes that lead to growth.

All About Team Work/Generational Differences: Bringing the Workforce Together: How to Successfully Integrate Generational and Other Differences

Countries have diplomats for a good reason; they act as mediators between two different cultures. Yet organizations often lack people who can act as ambassadors during times when different generations, divergent divisions, groups or teams are integrated.

Each group brings their own language and set of assumptions around their way of doing things. This generates tension, decreases productivity, and loss of morale.

The Assumpt! works with teams to identify and challenge the assumptions that stand in the way of successful integrations. Through personal stories, interactive experiences, business case histories, and tools, organizations enhance their ability to “think differently,” resolve conflict and accept change.

This keynote/seminar is designed to help successfully integrated business units that will need to change the way they work, interact and produce.

Diversity Eye Opener: Dealing with Uncertainty: How to Transform Biases From Danger into Opportunity

Despite the rising popularity and recognition that cognitive biases drive irrational behavior, they are integral parts of daily decision-making. Less practical help has been offered to overcoming their adverse impact in inhibiting profit, growth and alignment.

The key is to recognize cognitive bias as assumptions which when identified and managed can be turned into opportunities.

Now by combining the construct of The Assumpt! with insights from work identifying cognitive biases, a new framework for effective management has been developed to enhance an organization’s or individual’s ability to think differently and improve decisions under uncertainty.

This keynote/seminar is designed for Senior and Thought Leaders looking for ways to helping their teams manage risks and deal in an environment of diversity and uncertainty.
