Keynote: Surviving & Thriving the Waves of Change
The dynamics of our world are changing faster than the speed of light - and the velocity, complexity and unpredictability of this change is almost staggering, particularly in this very difficult business climate. Now and in the future, success will require a true mind shift for every individual and organization. BUT, change is inherently unsettling for almost everyone --- and it is threatening on several different levels. This dynamic presentation will address:

  • The elements of change that never change
  • Overcoming the toughest kinds of resistance
  • Embracing change with enthusiasm, humility and humor
  • Leading the change process with in uence and impact
  • Harnessing change as an opportunity for both business and personal transformation

    Keynote: The Power in Adversity
    Let’s face it; life isn’t easy today for anyone. Everyone faces adversity at some point in their lives. When it happens, you can become overwhelmed by it, and even get angry. Or, you can put your problems in perspective and view them merely as obstacles and challenges to rise above. After this life-altering presentation, you’ll be able to:
  • End the blame game for yourself and others
  • Take personal responsibility for your life and career success
  • Overcome obstacles from the outside world and internal, self-imposed limitations
  • Tap into your achievement mindset of attitude, persistence and resilience
  • Reframe “failures” as fuel for useful feedback, innovation and growth

    Keynote: Becoming a Courageous Leader
    The human destiny of an individual is lined with personal growth and self-awareness. This journey connects us with many opportunities to emerge as traditional leaders, both professional and personal. However, as life moves at a faster pace than ever before, busier than every before, and what appears to be a more complex world than ever before, it is vital that a new type of leader evolves...a Courageous Leader. Each and every one of us has the ability and the potential to awaken the Courageous Leader within us and with Scott as your tour guide during this highly engaging and content-rich program, you will be able to:
  • Master the “Art of Presence” while leveraging the past and preparing for the future.
  • Identify and release your excuses for avoiding leadership opportunities in the past.
  • Model the behavior and tactics of other Courageous Leaders around you and in this world.
  • Unleash greater levels of communication, collaboration, teamwork, and creativity towards bigger goals and bigger results.
  • Deepen and strengthen existing relationships and create new and empowering relationships.
