100's of little decisions - motivation, inspiration and change

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • In a world where we book our time in five-minute blocks, measure money in tenths of a per cent, and athletes win or lose by hundredths of a second, it is truly the little decisions that count. Our habits, our integrity, and our unexpected joys do not come from the larger and more obvious decisions. On a daily basis, people make hundreds of conscious and unconscious minor decisions.

    Change, growth, and achievement are outcomes of the 100’s Of Little Decisions we make every day. Evan Weselake will share stories from his years as a sponsored ultra-endurance athlete and his insights from his career designing multi-million dollar recognition programs to illustrate this truth. He will outline the key factors in performance psychology and in learning and development that show the immense powers of little decisions. This is a session that will move you to change not only your direction but the habits which inhibit you from achieving excellence.

creating a culture of engagement - leadership, culture, management

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • True engagement is when people regularly bring their full selves to work. It happens when staff members look for even more ways to contribute because they have a deep desire for improvement. The results are employees that bring high levels of energy and focus to work. “Being engaged” is a choice that every person seeks and wants. The level of staff member engagement is the primary driver of workplace culture.

    As a leader, manager, supervisor, and/or worker you have a huge influence over the levels of engagement and environment at work. Evan will teach audience members the levers you can use to improve employee commitment, the work atmosphere, and then the larger culture. Some methods are dramatic; they all require consistency. This session will help you to move your culture in a positive direction and to become a far more productive team.

    Using stories of frontline staff and management styles of interaction, Creating a Culture of Engagement will explain the key components of an engaging environment. What people are secretly looking for, and what you can do to draw out that elusive magic ingredient, full engagement!

Your presentation and the tie to teamwork and corporate performance really struck a chord ~ I heard some incredible feedback from the participants. You were able to do what many speakers are unable to do which is make a memorable connection between a meaningful life situation and valuable learning. Everyone had their favourite story but the key point in my mind is that people REMEMBERED the stories and will APPLY the learnings!

The group REALLY CONNECTED with your presentation, and the key quotes you had; “Training your weakness, Race your strengths”, “PLAN to COPE”, and others. They used these throughout the day three exercises when they were planning for next year’s key initiatives.

Little decisions are the most important ~ because you are constantly met with things that take you one-way or to the integrity way. The big ones [decisions] are obvious.


Metro Media

Many years of outdoor adventuring and coaching has given him [Evan] a truly special perspective on everyday life and how that perspective can help the average person’s daily struggle. It’s how we choose to make the hundreds of little decisions that face us every day. To say that Evan delivered on the day of his presentation is an understatement. He left us wanting more. I distinctly remember thinking… I could use another half hour of this.
