"Leaders don't complain about change. They are too busy doing something about it."
I learned about change when our first child was born with a chronic, life threatening illness and asking, how in the world will we get through this? I’ve spent the past 28+ years answering that question.
My message is personal. Because all change is personal.
My message is practical, because otherwise, why bother?
My message is based on science, but built on a lifetime of adventures as a speaker, writer, and entrepreneur. And I’m never done learning, because life is never done changing.
I help people manage their own perspectives about change, so they can effectively lead others.
I’ve learned what works when leading change. And what doesn’t.
What works is engaging the head and grabbing the heart, because both drive our behavior and results.
What works is understanding the difference between change management and change leadership. The former is about controlling and regulating the process. The latter is about motivating and inspiring people to follow the process.
What works is not just telling people to change. It’s giving them the tools and showing them how.
Going through change is not a market differentiator. Adapting to it faster and better than your competitors can be.
I’ll show you how.
"We had many, many comments from our attendees that you were one of the best Keynotes we have had EVER!
"I knew it was a real success when there weren’t any books left behind, (never seen that before) and we had to refresh the notepads at break, because at least half the people had taken their entire notepad with them when they left for break.
"I hope we can work together at another event in the future."
