Technology Expert John C. Havens Offers Insight Into Sony Hacking Scandal

Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the Sony hacks and how tons of information and emails are being compromised and leaked to the public. Well, Technology Expert and author John C. Havens shares his thoughts on the situation and offers insight into how other companies can avoid the same mistakes. 

john_c_havens_keynote_speaker“In terms of the Sony situation, I think beyond the actual hacking, what was most compelling to me was how it demonstrated people’s behavior when they thought their words or actions wouldn’t be seen by others. That’s a big-picture side of all this digital hacking – we need to consider how our world will look when all of our words, actions, and intentions will be visible to others. Literally. Augmented and virtual reality are examples of a new kind of lens through which we’ll see the world.”  

“[In virtual reality] You put a pair of glasses over your eyes, and you can see when looking at someone, if they’ve mentioned you in an email and what they said. I believe this is actually an opportunity to move away from negative behavior like gossiping, etc., through something I call “Accountability Based Influence” (ABI) in my book, Hacking H(app)iness. While it’s going to be a huge cultural shift to deal with, it will also help us eradicate some of the negative tendencies our digital and social media lives have wrought.”

John C. Havens is a futurist, thought-provoking business speaker who explains the importance of utilizing technology to optimize your life in a positive way. He is a contributing writer for Mashable, author, and emerging/social media consultant. John focuses on leveraging the science of happiness with emerging technology to maximize value.

Are You Reinforcing Audience Learn Potential? by Jeff Davidson

Time management expert and author Jeff Davidson, explains to meeting planners on how to make a lasting impact on audience members!

O_24ad3a7b1db6851846d04439b3c43168Untitled-1Here is conundrum, to which, perhaps, you have an answer: Meeting planners go to extraordinary lengths and sometimes pay huge sums of money to ensure a well-run and effective conference.

Yet, in most sessions the information provided is quickly forgotten. Participants attend, leave, and soon cannot recall much if not all of what they were exposed to.

I’ve made 836 presentations and attended at least an equal number. In all that time I’ve received a book or audio program from the speaker perhaps 30 times, or from less than 4% of the meetings I attended. Following a worthwhile speech or presentation, such books and audio products are valuable to me. I tend to review them, keep them, and reflect upon what I learned. 

So, which speaker’s presentation and information have the greatest impact upon me: those who only offer handouts or who employ some type of take home learning aid?

An Investment with Legs

If you are paying a small fortune for the conferences you arrange, to ensure that my message or any other speaker’s message has optimal if not lasting impact, I encourage you to acquire books or audio products from us. This represents far more than a dollar transaction that benefits speakers, it is an investment in your people.

My 31-year experience confirms that audience members are thrilled to receive an autographed book or audio product from a speaker, and that the meeting planner who arranges such distribution is considered a forward-thinker.

Such learning tools — in my case, books and audio on the topic of work-life balance — usually don’t cost more than standard giveaways such as t-shirts, mugs, notebooks, or tote bags and indeed have much more residual value. The pre-speech announcement of such gifts generates good will and higher levels of attendance. Participants often keep the book or audio for years, sometimes displaying them in the office, or storing them in their personal home library.

Enhanced Learning, All Around

When a substantial learning tool is given, the audience members can relax, and take fewer notes. The entire session, from start to finish, invariably proceeds on a higher note. At the conclusion of the meeting, the book or audio product is one of the treasures that participants look forward to bringing back with them 

Because you’re buying in quantities, with virtually any speaker, the price per learning aid can drop significantly. Over many years, I’ve had clients large and small, take advantage of this opportunity, and I know other speakers who have witnessed the same. To the best of my knowledge it has been a win-win-win situation (meeting planner, speaker, audience participants) all the way!

Remembering the American Prophet: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

king-nobel-peace-prizeDr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke these prophetic words as a way to motivate the masses to find a cause that they were passionate enough to die for. In the end, Dr. King was willing – and did die for the right of all Americans to be granted respect and equality.

On this day, we would like to thank Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and celebrate him and the countless other civil rights heroes who have dedicated their lives to fighting injustice and inequality in this nation.

When A Lack Of Balance Is Okay by Jones Loflin

The new year is usually a time where we like to buckle down and carve out goals for ourselves, such as productivity and self improvement in our lives and careers. Having a successful work life balance isn’t always easy, but luckily Motivational Speaker and author Jones Loflin can aid you on your path to achieving a healthy balance in the new year.

images1January is “Get A Balanced Life Month.” And whether you call it work life balance, work life blend, or just maintaining your sanity, we all seem to be in search of that elusive point in life when it seems that our work, relationships, and personal well-being are in harmony.

If this article were a commercial, this would be the point at which soothing music would begin, and some really happy-looking people would begin appearing on your screen. And then someone would promise to deliver what every other thing you have tried has failed to do… bring you a greater sense of balance.

Don’t get me wrong. There are any number of products and services that do help us bring more order and sanity to our break neck schedules and execution of our work and life priorities. I just think we put an enormous amount of negative pressure on ourselves when we examine our schedules and don’t see a “balanced” mixture of work and life.

Instead of always trying to figure out how to obtain balance in our lives, what if we gave ourselves permission to experience an out of balance life from time to time? In other words, when is a lack of balance okay? After giving the question some thought, here are some of my thoughts:

When it is temporary. Depending on the activity, temporary could be 15 minutes or one year. The thought here is that you have a clearly defined ending point when you will be no longer be so consumed by this area of your work or life. Retail store managers and employees will certainly experience a lack of balance in their lives until the end of December and will neglect other areas of their lives. They know that come January, however, their lives will return to some sense of normalcy. My friend Chad is a plant controller, and the first 3-4 days of each month he does what is called “period close.” I don’t dare call him during those few days because I know he is up to his eyeballs in numbers. His workflow adjusts after a few days. Instead of wringing your hands about the hours that a current work assignment is taking, take comfort in the fact that it will end, and make plans now on how you will replenish those areas of life you have been neglecting.

When you have been fully engaged with other areas you will now neglect for awhile. As I write this article, I am on a 5 day business trip. I miss my family already, and feel a twinge of guilt because I won’t be there to experience life with them this week. However, I am just coming off a weekend where I spent all of it fully focused on them, and I am already set to be with them all day on Saturday. The mistake I find many people make is that they don’t take care of the right things at the right moment, and they spend so much time regretting that they didn’t make better choices when they had the chance.

When you are experiencing a breakthrough. Call it being in the zone or in the flow, there are times when ideas start coming, and we need to stay the course to make sure we don’t lose them. I typically write first thing in the morning. When I get a new idea rolling around in my head, I can’t just stop and come back later. I may have to miss a breakfast with my family, get to work a little later, or forego exercise in order to finish the thought.

When you know you’ll regret it later. As my dad’s health failed in his last year of life, the time I had to devote to his care was significant. My business suffered, and time with my own family was sometimes limited. I knew, however, that not taking the chance to honor and care for my dad in this way would haunt me forever. I also knew it was temporary. The choice to take a challenging work assignment or pursue a higher degree will no doubt impede on time on family and personal time, but when will it not do that?

When it’s the chance of a lifetime. Rebecca Jones, an extremely talented videographer who is also a friend of mine, once had the chance to intern with Ken Burns. It required a move to the Northeast and very little financial reward, but what an amazing opportunity to work with someone who is the icon in producing documentary films.

Now the question that’s been on your mind since you read the title of this article is, “When is a lack of balance NOT okay?” That’s a subject for another day, but here are three possibilities:

When the lack of balance is the result of continued poor choices about how you use your time

When your actions are influenced more by who others think you should be than what your know you want to become

When you consistently make choices that are out of sync with your values

If you go back and review the reasons that it’s okay to have a lack of balance, you probably recognize that your life is probably going to be out of balance more often than it is in balance. That was the premise behind the book Juggling Elephants, I co-authored with Todd Musig. In it, we equate the struggle of balancing work and life to a circus with 3 rings. In a circus, there is rarely the same level of activity in all 3 rings (balance). One moment one ring is bursting with activity while the other two are less busy, and then a few minutes later another ring becomes the focal point while another may go dark (unbalanced). At the end of the circus performance, however, there will have been a balance of acts in all 3 rings.

In the same way, giving ourselves permission to more fully focus on one area of our work or life when it meets the criteria above is a better approach to achieving success in all of them.

What criteria do you use to allow a lack of balance in your life?

The Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 86 Years Later

Today marks what would’ve been the 86th birthday, of one of the most prolific leaders of the modern civil rights movement; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

hqdefault

Between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and meanwhile he wrote five books as well as numerous articles. In these years, he led massive protest that caught the attention of the entire world, providing what he called a coalition of conscience.

Today, our top Ethics & Values speakers continue that coalition! These speakers help promote positive corporate values by teaching audiences how to handle ethical or moral dilemmas within a business environment.

While these speakers — who come from all different backgrounds, are apart of the coalition of conscience, anyone who works for moral and cultural change keeps his dream alive!

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DR. KING, AND THANK YOU!

Profiles of Our Top Keynote Speakers

Great keynote speakers possess the kind of exceptional talent that’s hard to come by. That’s why when we find speakers that have what it truly takes, we’re eager to share! All of the speakers we work with at Eagles Talent contribute unique backgrounds, stories, messages and speaking styles that make for outstanding performances at events and conferences, and the following include some of our most highly-sought keynote speakers.

keynote speaker

Jim Abbott

Just who is Jim Abbott? Jim Abbott is best known for the storied career he led as a Major League Baseball pitcher. Born with only one arm, Abbott surpassed all expectations to both maintain an independent lifestyle and compete as an athlete. A pitcher for the University of Michigan baseball team, Abbott went on to play for the Toronto Blue Jays, winning more games his first season than any other rookie in the League. Abbott was also a member of the 1988 gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic baseball team and pitched an impressive no-hitter for the New York Yankees. Given the many challenges and successes Abbott has experienced over the course of his professional athletic career performing with one arm, Abbott’s speeches are focused on overcoming adversity and helping others harness their full potential.

Neal Petersen

Neal Petersen is a man who loves adventure. Having completed a solo yacht trip around the world in a self-constructed yacht, Petersen knows what it means to achieve success in the face of great risk. Petersen’s childhood in South Africa during a time wrought with the tumult of apartheid also taught him many valuable lessons that he’s been able to apply on his journeys around the world. Today, Petersen offers first-hand insight into adaptability, leadership, planning, and more to business professionals. As a global investor himself, Peterson is able to easily connect with international audiences who are invested in achieving success in the realm of business.

Walter Bond

You may also hear Walter Bond referred to as, “Mr. Accountability,” thanks in part to his commitment to the belief that everyone must be accountable for their actions. A former NBA player for the Dallas Mavericks and Detroit Pistons, Bond now devotes his time to sharing the lessons he’s learned as a professional athlete, specifically his “31 Truths to Boost Peak Performance.” Bond also has experience with franchise businesses, and has merged the personal skills he developed as an athlete with his astute understandings of the world of finance and business. Bond is further known for his upbeat, exuberant personality that fully engages audiences.

Mark Thompson

Meet Mark Thompson, the CEO of Virgin Unite Mentors, a program launched under Sir Richard Branson that focuses on innovation and executive improvement. However, Virgin Unite Mentors exists as just one of the many hats Thompson has worn (and continues to wear). Thompson has also been a Chief of Staff for Charles Schwab, a Founding Board Member of Smule, a New York Times best-selling author, and even a Broadway producer. With such a diverse background, it’s little wonder that Thompson is able to connect with a wide array of audiences. Thompson’s speeches focus on ways leaders and executives can inspire growth, implement change, and increase engagement within the companies or organizations they lead. With a finger on the pulse of leadership today, Thompson is able to successfully deliver effective and relevant solutions to leaders around the world.

Connie Podesta

Could your company benefit from better leadership, sales performance or marketing? If so, Connie Podesta is the keynote speaker you’re looking for. Companies love Connie’s ability to help elevate employee and corporate performance as a result of her sharp insight into psychology and human relations. What makes Podesta even more unique? She knows how to make an audience laugh. Podesta’s speeches about improving a work-life balance, being more motivated in the workplace and team building are always delivered in a manner that has audiences engaged and smiling. Connie Podesta is a Board Certified Professional Counselor, as well as an American Psychotherapy Association member.

What Makes These Speakers Stand Out?

Each of these speakers shares the common characteristic of achieving extraordinary success in their personal or professional lives, but that’s not exclusively what makes them great keynote speakers. Audiences benefit from listening to individuals like Jim Abbott and Mark Thompson not because they can speak on their many successes, but because they’ve taken these triumphs and transformed them into messages that are relevant to broader audiences. Their speeches have clear, insightful messages, and are delivered in a way that motivates and inspires. It takes a gregarious speaker like Walter Bond to fully capture the attention of an audience, just as it takes the comedic spin of Connie Podesta to make speeches about self-improvement more engaging.  The value of these keynote speakers therefore rests not so much in what they’ve done in the past, but how they help others achieve success in their own lives, today.

 

For information on booking one of our featured keynote speakers, contact Eagles Talent at 1-800-345-5607.

Multitasking and its Hazards by Time Management Expert Jeff Davidson

No matter how often they try, some people seem to have an inability to give you their undivided attention.

0abcce4If your conversation starts off on a high note, and apparently you are receiving undivided attention, in seconds, they’re thinking about something else, looking elsewhere, or ready to move on to what’s next. It’s a frustrating encounter.

If you have a teenage son or daughter, you likely know the routine. For a moment, they’ll look up, recognize your face, say hi, and might even offer some form of expression. Within moments, following what you say, they’ve already dialed down the level of attention that they were able to muster a few seconds before.

It’s not just your children: Do coworkers, bosses, and nearly everyone else seem as if they’re racing to the beat of the multitasking drum? Racing around does not have to be your fate.

Let It Go

The more you know about multitasking and how ineffective it is, the more likely you’ll be able to abandon it. Multitasking is an inherently stressful way to proceed throughout your career and your life. In one university study, people who consistently switched from one task to another worked a little faster, but otherwise proved to be less productive. An article in the Journal of Experimental Psychology reported that students attempting to solve a complex math problem were nearly 40% slower when they were forced to switch to other menial tasks during the interim.

Multitaskers require as much as 50% more time to accomplish a task than otherwise. Why do they keep multitasking? It “seems” productive: they’ve got their fingers in this pie and that, and, my goodness, “look at me,” “aren’t I busy!” Yet, in addition to taking longer, they’re prone to making as many as 50% more errors than their counterparts who have the staying power to focus on the task at hand.

Slay the Beast

Why has multitasking survived for nearly two decades? Why hasn’t the typical career professional abandoned it, once and for all? First, we receive messages all day – online, in magazines, on radio and TV, from friends, in the movies, and in books and articles – that suggest it’s okay to double or triple up. “You can handle it.” Actually, most people cannot handle it. More than 90% of people are not physiologically wired to effectively engage long-term in multitasking.

Second, as the pace of society speeds up, for some individuals doing one thing at a time represents a trip down boredom lane. Hopefully, this is not you.

Third, some people erroneously believe that multitasking will enable them to finish more in the course of a day, week, month, or year, or that unless they multitask they will not be competitive and will be unable to stay even with their peers. Some believe multitasking is the only way to ‘get by.’ “I’m not good enough to slow down and focus on the task at hand.” Or, “I have to multitask, otherwise I won’t be able to sustain my livelihood.”

Sharp Attention is the Key

Your brain can only give its sharp attention in one direction at a time. For short-term tasks, or routine and familiar procedures, multitasking is not a terrible way to proceed. You run into trouble when at least one of the tasks that you’re juggling are important, such as dealing with a client or prospect, analyzing data, or following a procedure for the first time.

When you reverberate back and forth between two activities that require your sharp attention, you lose productivity with each reverberation. You might even be doing internal damage to yourself. It’s unwise to multitask if one of the tasks involves read instructions, operate heavy machinery, and driving an automobile.

Alexander Hamilton, the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, once said:

Men give me some credit for genius. All the genius I have lies in this: When I have a subject in hand, I study it profoundly. Day and night it is before me. I explore it in all its bearings. My mind becomes pervaded with it. Then the effort that I make is what the people call the fruit of genius. It is the fruit of labor and thought.

The top professionals in your field, in one way or another, have gravitated to doing one thing at a time.

One Thing at a Time

Hereafter, take the opportunity to do your best work. Slow down, stay focused on the task at hand, and bring it to completion. In the long run, that will enable you to go further and faster than any other method you can devise.
