Topic Presentations

Why doesn’t the fastest runner always win the race? Or why doesn’t the smartest
person always get the best job? Because it’s not always the ones who “start out the smartest
who end up smartest.” (Dweck) It takes more than natural speed, intelligence, or ability to be
a champion. It takes resilience. But resilience is not just for the elite with an Olympic
gold around their neck. Resilience can be learned.
Mark shows leaders how to increase their grit, passion, and purpose by developing the
mindset of a champion. Mark’s best practices will help you cultivate determination, increase
resilience and conquer adversity.

Change is constant, unpredictable and accelerating. Extreme change can –much like a hurricane –leave you dizzy, dazed and disoriented, as though the earth is moving under your feet. Even if you survive the storm, you know more is coming. Change expert Dr. Mark DeVolder throws a lifeline to you and your team with tools and strategies he’s developed to clear away the fog. You will learn how to rewire your brain to bounce through adversity, overcome obstacles and reinvent yourself. Mark’s cutting-edge principles will enable you to adapt boldly, nimbly and quickly in midst of constant change.

When individuals lose their spark, organizations lose their fire. This predicament has a devastating effect on productivity, profitability and company reputation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Mark’s test-driven model of engagement equips people to identify the causes of “flame out” and recognize behaviors that act as a fire extinguisher. People will learn how to accept new practices and let go of the past with DeVolder’s easy to apply engagement strategy that increases clarity, competence, influence and appreciation. As relationships strengthen, trust burns brightly.

Have you wondered why some people have the ability to change frequently, easily and quickly? Are you amazed at their creativity, tenacity and results? These people are entrepreneurs. Mark’s ground-breaking presentation will touch on the heart and mind of entrepreneurs, how to reinvent yourself, overcoming obstacles and the three keys of entrepreneurship.

Hazards and obstacles abound in the fast and frenzied pace of business today. In the rush to stay competitive, people are increasingly tempted to take short cuts and sacrifice safety. However, the most common barrier is actually change itself. Some employees feel paralyzed not only by constant change, but by the sheer volume of change. In this environment, people disengage. Mark’s proven engagement model enables people to get mobilized by becoming change-right and change-ready, increasing collaboration, productivity and safe practices.
