Themes and topics

Challenge is the Opportunity

o Build resilience and maintain motivation  

o Embrace change and unexpected challenges 

o Chart a path through uncertainty 

Expecting Problems as we Explore Possibilities 

In the midst of a crisis, spectators sit on the side lines holding back. Competitors step into the arena as they pursue success and risk failure. The choice is ours. During this talk and webinar, Mark will help your people to: 

o Embrace a competitor mindset to pursue success  

o Deal with fear and anxiety  

o Develop a performance bias

Optimist, Realist or Something Else? 

The tyranny of uncertainty typifies a crisis. It demands us to adapt our behaviour as we seek to create stability where there is none. During this talk and webinar, Mark will help your people to: 

o Maintain a positive attitude  

o Balance conflicting emotions in times of uncertainty 

o Navigate a path through a crisis 

Bringing people together to solve complex problems 

Human beings have faced seemingly impossible challenges before. So, in times of great uncertainty, it’s worth remembering that history is filled with accounts of the impossible made possible through human endeavour. And, when that endeavour is combined with others through collaboration, that is when major breakthroughs happen. During this talk and webinar, Mark will help your people to:  

o Understand the value of collaboration in delivering results 

o Adapt and sustain teamwork  

o Lead teams by galvanising around a common goal
