Welcome to the New Normal where there are never enough hours in the day to do everything you want to do. This is a time in history when professionals take their timid feet off the brakes of life, career, and business, and accelerate into the future. I have good news for you.

The good old days may be behind us, but there are magnificent days just around the corner. Enough waiting around; enough biting your nails; enough tapping your feet; enough wishing and waiting for something to happen.

Consider this your nudge, your push, your invitation to show up in a big way. Now is the time to make something happen. Simon will share insights on how he reinvented himself at Disney as well as key insights that he’s learned while working with 1,500 organizations in 45 countries over the past 15 years.

Brilliant Living will teach you how to make something happen instead of playing it safe. You have a choice to make.

Be average or be brilliant. Which one are you? Will you dare to be brilliant? If so, there are eight core areas of life that one must constantly evaluate to live a brilliant life: spiritual, family, career/business, emotional, mental, wellness, social and financial. Simon T. Bailey leads this inspiring and invigorating session in which participants will learn how to:

  • Increase capacity to be confident in career and life;
  • Understand how and why mindfulness meditation can provide a breakthrough; and
  • Experience a simple tool to use to regularly evaluate the eight core areas of life.

Dr. Ballard speaks about how he has turned his dreams into reality by taking risks and learning how to face failure and turn it into success.

For our organizations to thrive in the 21st Century, now, more so than ever before, it is critical that we open our minds to new cultures and open our world view. Our increasingly globalized world is changing at lightning speed and we interact daily with people from diverse backgrounds who bring with them history, culture, knowledge, skill, and yes – even bias. And that – is a good thing. It’s no longer enough to think solely through our own lenses and filters. It’s time to adopt a world view that is inclusive of all cultures, genders, and viewpoints. It’s time we become Global Citizens!

Global Citizenship has nothing to do with what we do for a living, or where we are in the world, but how we care for others. It means embodying three qualities:  being present, authentically connecting with others and being inspired by a mission beyond ourselves.

It seems our world is becoming nearly one hundred percent addicted to the noise, to external gratification. From continuous checking of smart phones to our self-worth represented by ‘likes’ on Facebook, we’ve lost our ability to simply enjoy the present moment. Calling upon simple mindfulness practices, Bash reminds us of the real power and productivity that come from stepping into the present moment and enjoying our work for the sake of the work itself (not for some reward at the end of the day.) By stepping away from the noise and bringing a more clear and focused self to work, our productivity, fulfillment and ability to help our clients will grow tenfold.

In this empowering and enlightening keynote, Chris Bashinelli shares a unique approach to “Global Citizenship” and the restructuring of your world view, beginning with yourself. When you do? Your foundation becomes stronger. Your potential increases. Your decisions take on new depths. And you create a clarity that is so inspired -- you’ll never, ever want to go back to the “status quo”.

This high energy talk shows attendees how to shed limited perspectives -- to see themselves, others, and their world through a more empowered lens. Ready to help your team take diversity and inclusion to the next level? Invite Chris in to speak at your next event.

In order to achieve real diversity and inclusion within our organization we must adopt a world view that equally values all generations, cultures and perspectives. Chris Bashinelli’s all-inclusive approach to relationship building has been cultivated for 30+ years, starting with his “Stoop” in the heart of Brooklyn, where his childhood friends shared a combined total of more than 13 nationalities. In this signature keynote, Chris drives home the ease of relationship building with a personal, yet universal method he’s applied everywhere from farming with mystics in Uganda to living with nomads in Mongolia.

Audience members will learn the three essential steps from the “Stoop” which serve as the basis for profound personal transformation and deep connection with others - Awareness, Acceptance, and Courage! These steps enable people to strengthen their relationship with themselves, co-workers, family, friends – and even those with whom we have no seeming connection - be it a 600 pound Japanese Sumo Wrestler or our next-door neighbor. When we make that human connection and move people from the category of “them” to “us”, anything is possible.

There’s never been a more important time to richly hone the relationships that transform lives, bridge gaps, connect generations, and empowers our life experience. By opening our world view we are far more powerful than we could ever be on our own - be it the exchange of tribal knowledge between an experienced team member and a social media-savvy young employee, or the shared core values of an Oklahoma farmer and a Mongolian herdsmen.

What's surprising is that our ability to authentically connect with our clients and friends (OR others) has very little to do with them, and almost everything to do with our perspective. (We see the world not as it is, but as we are). The great news is that means we have the power to deepen our relationships with others at any moment, all we have to do is shift our perspective! Building better relationships doesn’t necessarily mean knowing perfectly how to bow, shake hands, or say hello in every culture, it simply means bringing an open and accepting mindset to all of our interactions.

This message hits home for so many who reach back to remember their own beginnings and recognize the foundational wisdom in creating life-long connections. Bring the transformational lessons of the “Stoop” to your next audience.

What is your Step “Z”, the goal you feel will truly bring your life meaning? It could be a new client, a new partner, or a new home. What if you could arrive at that destination before you even begin the journey? We tend to be so fixated on our goal that we forget to examine how we are viewing ourselves. We feel that if our circumstances were different our goal would be attainable. In reality, we can only go as far as our shadow will let us - it’s not the circumstances that have to change, but us.

With total clarity, Bash emphasizes that the swiftest way to get from where you are to where you want to be is to be there first - on the inside. The best way to get from Step “A” to Step “Z” is to Start at Step “Z”. It may seem counterintuitive, but your best chance at achieving your goal is to imagine it is already accomplished. Step firmly with faith into the shoes you were meant to fill - and live, breathe, work and act from that place.

From moderating a major United Nations event in Brazil at 23 years old with no prior experience, to leading a National Geographic Expedition in Mongolia when nearly all funding had been pulled one month before production, Bash shows how when we change our mind, we can change our world. The key to creating success lies not in getting what we want, but in realizing that we already have everything we need to live a life of great meaning. By connecting our ultimate goal to a mission that benefits others, and having unwavering faith in one’s potential, we will find the inspiration necessary to reach our Step “Z”.

Bash walks attendees through the scientific method for recognizing and reducing their most limiting beliefs, thereby opening the doorway to a whole new world. Start at Step “Z”, let go of the rest, and realize your full potential.

What can I control? How do my passion and distinguished skills add value to my organization? In the face of discouragement and desolation, these are some of the questions that Shane Battier often asked himself in his endeavors toward success. He shares his personal story with audiences and expounds on how factors such as dedication, resilience and tenacity ultimately rendered Battier an invaluable member of championship winning teams. Deemed the “No-Stats All-Star” by best-selling author Michael Lewis in a New York Times Magazine cover story, audience members are emboldened to apply Battier’s strategy, vision and leadership skills in their own professional careers in this thought-provoking and impactful presentation.

Positive Psychology, "the scientific study of optimal human functioning," provides practical tools for better living. This new subfield within psychology is unique in that it creates a bridge between the Ivory Tower and Main Street -- making rigorous academic ideas easily accessible. In this session, Ben-Shahar discusses current research related to the science of happiness and introduces ideas and tools that can actually make you happier. He covers topics including giving ourselves the permission to be human, simplifying our lives, recognizing the mind-body connection, and re-focusing on the positive.

Most organizational and individual potential is untapped. Talented individuals are attracted to and thrive in organizations that bring out the best in them. Ben-Shahar discusses how leaders can create a positive environment that nurtures their inherent potential, as well as the potential in those with whom they work. Ben-Shahar presents research and practices from the world of Appreciative Inquiry, and the Strengths-based Approach to Leadership and Organizational Development and illustrates how to blend them into an approach that underpins extraordinary rather than ordinary outcomes, and enables people to reach fulfillment, happiness, wellbeing, and success.

Rocky Bleier motivates audiences to keep on striving for greater accomplishments. His dynamic style is coupled with real-life stories that are told from a first person perspective. Those stories about his fabled comeback from Vietnam injuries to Super Bowl star are utterly inspiring for their courage and determination. He brings it together with a warm, self-reflective humor that audiences really relate to.

Laszlo Bock's New York Times bestselling Work Rules! synthesizes a decade of explosive growth at Google, the latest cutting-edge academic research and examples from the worlds of sports, art, nutrition, and business into 10 steps any organization can take to make work better. He explains how to build an unbeatable culture and hire better, why you should "pay unfairly", when to be frugal and when to be generous, and why your smallest actions can have the biggest impact. Taken together, he offers a roadmap to building an unbeatable organization. As John Doerr, managing director of the seminal venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers explained, "these principles are the handbook for high performance teams that win."
