A new reality requires a new lens on leadership. Antiquated mindsets and methods are no longer effective. An ever-changing landscape requires leaders to be more nimble and move to a much more distributed model of leadership. Through a series of emotionally charged vignettes, Mike will share with you the tools you need to be a leader in your organization regardless of your formal role or title.
Empathy and compassion combined with boundaries and accountability are key to leading through change in any organization. As human beings we make decisions based on emotion. Understanding the emotion that drives behaviour allows today's leaders to excel over the long run. Emotional capital are the feelings, values, beliefs and attitudes that people engage with you and your business. How well you manage the emotional assets has a direct impact on how readily people will work for you, buy from you or do business with you.
This is a conversation on Emotional Intelligence that can be tailored to your specific audience. Coupling my experience as CEO of one of Canada’s top mortgage brokerages with my own tragic lived experiences this keynote hits home on many levels. In a society that seems to continue to push the stereotypical, unrealistic, hypermasculine values that have been passed on from generation to generation it is important to understand the perils that this cultural mentality invite.
This presentation is as relevant in the high school, college or University classroom as it is the corporate boardroom. For years I have written and talked about both the personal and societal challenges that conforming to the normative definition of what it means to be a Badass create.
Ensuring Success Even When “Sh*t Happens”
This presentation delivers an inspiring, impactful message that teaches participants to release their untapped potential and take control of their business. The audience will learn to take control of their professional lives, become accountable to themselves, regardless of the external pressures to their business. Whether you acknowledge it or not, change is happening daily. There are a myriad of external factors that influence our markets, our business and the environment we operate in. The vast majority of these factors we have little to no power to change.
We can fight the changes. We can resist them, ignore them or let them flatten us. What we cannot do is stop them from happening. So when I hear someone drop the “Something’s gotta change” truism, I want to grab them by the shoulders and shake them and scream “Yeah something’s gotta change… Maybe it’s you!”
This session focuses on personal accountability and shifting attitudes to navigate the undulating plains of change within any business.
This presentation reflects on the fact that life is sales and as leaders we need to be competent in the art of persuasion and influence. Mike delivers a framework for getting your message across without being confrontational or pushy. Through a combination of science and story your audience will be moved, touched and inspired. At the end of the day they will not only be entertained but also walk away with real tangible tools for everyday use.
Becoming a Better Man When “Something’s Gotta Change”, Maybe It’s You!
A powerful, raw story that is somehow both unique and relatable. Becoming A Better Man shows us how to close the gap between the men we wish to be and how we are actually behaving. It’s a courageous look at the doubts and fears we’ve learned not to talk about, and a reminder that together we can create a stronger, healthier understanding of what ‘manhood’ really means.
