Mastering Change: Five Decisions That Accelerate Growth & Inspire Transformation

Growing in response to change is the rule of human existence, not the exception. It is the one thing each and every one of us has been doing, literally, since the day we squirmed out of our mother's womb. But sometimes we need help tapping into our innate creativity, resilience, and growth potential.

Decisions are the jumper cables for the growth engine inside each of us. In this fun and interactive talk, Nick reveals the five key decisions of his A.D.A.P.T. framework that will super-charge your resilience, your creativity, and your capacity for growth.

ACCEPT: Every story of successful adaptation and innovation begins with a decision to accept the reality of what you can’t control, while embracing the possibility of what you can.

DISTANCE: Distance your team with a future dream. An inspiring high-level direction is still the ultimate antidote to the poison of crippling anxiety.

ALIGN: Adaptation is a team sport. Keep your people connected by aligning everyone with a #1.

PROGRESS: Progress is to human adaptation, what rocket fuel is to space exploration. When teams think big, but start small, anything is possible.

TEST: When the environment flips from well-known to WTH, long term plans need to make room for short term experiments.
Audience members will walk away from this dynamic session not just more knowledgeable, but also more excited about the hidden opportunities for growth right under their noses. Invigorated by a fresh outlook; connected by a common language; and armed with practical tools and clear decisions, your people will be ready to cut through the chaos with a laser-like focus on organizational objectives, team priorities, and personal growth opportunities.

Unleash The Future In You: 7 Simple Strategies For Maximizing Your Impact & Influence

This highly interactive virtual Keynote + Breakout combo was designed to unlock the potential of current and future leaders at every level of the organization.

The keynote reveals how the future of you and everyone you know will be made with two key ingredients: Fate and Freedom. Fate is about all the opportunities and threats that will cross your path or plunk you upside the head. Freedom is about the decisions you’ll make in order to leverage every twist of fate that weaves itself into your life and your work–the good and the bad; the ugly and the beautiful. Through a combination of engaging stories and interactive questions, your people will begin to discover what they are truly capable of.

In the breakouts, smaller groups of audience members will learn to immediately apply seven simple strategies for discovering and maximizing the sources of their greatest potential.

1 . FLIP YOUR SCRIPT from ‘Change is Hard’ to ‘Growth is Happening.’

2. SEE THE FALLING APPLE to unlock your creativity in the chaos.

3. SPOTLIGHT YOUR SUPERPOWER by sidelining your sandwiches.

4. CHECK YOUR PULSE to find focus and stop scattering your talent.

5. CONSULT AN ANTI-YOU to see your future with a fresh perspective.

6. RENT THE RV to reduce the risk of chasing audacious dreams.

7. UNLEASH THE HERO WITHIN with one courageous decision.
