Are You Ready for Takeoff: Navigate Your Future in a Post-Pandemic World

Many organizations are faced with the reality of having to produce more at a faster pace, with increased complexity and uncertainty. To get ready for take-off in our new world, our brains must be future-ready. What are the secrets of people who have the ability to create positive change in the world?

From CEOs and teachers to prisoners, nuns, entrepreneurs and everything in between – we can apply the lessons learned from their inspiring stories to our everyday lives. The secret? They choose to leave behind ‘rah-rah’ platitudes that are ineffective and keep us stuck and move forward with the skills needed to take off and navigate the future. They use real knowledge and insights that are not only humorous but will leave you inspired to open your mind and heart to be even better at change than you are now. When we are called upon to expand the vision of who we are and what our teams and organizations can do, we can harness the incredible power of change to make it happen.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Engage your brain to be future-ready
  • Acquire the critical mindset and skills needed to accelerate multiple organizational changes 
  • You will not only be able to handle the vast amounts of change but shift to the new vision that is being asked of you
  • Tools for transformation, change and growth are shared to tackle the changes that are coming down the pipe that you can immediately use
  • Break out of status quo change management thinking and discover people-centric approaches that actually work
