Janet’s most requested virtual program, focuses on actions to take now to manage stress and create the new future. Options are:
Your people didn’t believe it could happen to them. Then, disruptors appeared on the horizon, and now everyone has to play catch up. Up to one-third of your workforce could be actively resistant. How much faster could you move if everyone were on board?
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
This program budges people out of the past and helps them SEE that change affects everyone, there is no choice, and no hiding AND IN THE END, ADAPTING WORKS BETTER FOR EVERYONE.
Do something SO bold, that a year from now, when we are through this, you’ll shout: “I can’t believe we/did that!”
Especially during disruptive change, this program is personally inspirational. However, the effects extend to the workplace … as people become bolder, more confident, take more risks, think larger – despite circumstances.
Janet brings the lessons of her experiences as a National Triathlon Champion, Ironman competitor, and pilot who’s flown through the world … to inspire you to think the impossible and do the unimaginable. Her stories highlight overcoming depths, resilient comebacks, and miraculous survivals.
You will knock away outdated pillars, blow away perceptions of what’s possible, rewrite your story and create a new set of rules. In so doing, life will be expanded as never before.
“That Janet is relatable, upbeat, and very engaging. Our group loved the spin that she put on how to deal with real issues with change. She did her research on our organization so she knew what to talk about to be relatable.”
“Very pleased with Janet! As a closing speaker for the day, she tied the full day of events together extremely well!”
“Everything went really well. The group loved her!”
“Janet did a great job. I have not had a keynote with that kind of energy before. She had them entertained and charged up and there was a swarm of participants at her table afterwards.”
“Dr. Lapp was AMAZING – she did a phenomenal job closing out our conference on a wonderfully positive note. She connected individually with participants throughout the conference, asking probing questions and gathering feedback that she worked directly into her presentation. During the presentation itself, we laughed with her, we cried with her, and then we laughed some more. In addition to the emotional release, she provided some paradigm-smashing perspectives that we can all take back with us to use with others as well as inspire us in our own work. Really, it was better than I’d expected, and my expectations were pretty high!”
