AUDIENCE TAKEAWAYS

  • Why setting a flag narrows your focus

  • Why consistency counters adversity
  • How embracing inconvenience builds resilience

Building Exceptional Resilience One Step at a Time

Only with remarkable resilience can we harness our greatest potential – utilizing constraints to drive growth, persisting where others falter, and tapping into unimagined creativity. Resilience isn’t something we’re born with, it’s built one step at a time.

How do we innovate when competition stagnates? How do we use adversity to drive creativity? How do we stay motivated when progress isn’t linear? And how do we create a culture that’s bold, supportive, and driven to reach new levels of growth?

By understanding the transformative concept of the “Circle of Possibility” we have the map to building unshakable resilience. From Costa Rica’s commitment to environmental sustainability to Barcelona’s innovative “superblocks” – examples of immense growth and creativity enabled by the “Circle of Possibility” abound.

In order to thrive in a world that is more competitive than ever we must be able to weather any storm – where others give up, we must grow.

As a keynote speaker and thought leader, I help individuals, leaders, and corporations construct a step-by-step map to reach whatever heights they desire.

By knowing your values, defining direction, and embracing constraints – unshakable resilience is within reach.
