Maintaining a successful growing brand in today’s ever-changing market is difficult. Your employees are working exceptionally hard, but could potentially be worn out, confused, or maybe even heading down the wrong path. You hired them because they seemed perfect for the job, but over time their focus has lost its laser-like precision. There are days when, as their leader, you simply wish you could push the restart button. You know your group is talented but in desperate need of new motivation, a tool to realign your troops and revitalize them to perform their jobs as you both originally envisioned.

If this is your reality, Erik Wahl offers his high-energy onstage performance as your group’s inspiration. This presentation is equivalent to yelling ‘CLEAR’ as the paddles are positioned to shock the fading pulse of your workforce and enliven their hearts to pursue their jobs as you both originally intended.

As an internationally recognized graffiti artist, and a #1 best selling business author, Erik redefines the term “keynote speaker.” Pulling from his history as both a business strategist and an artist, he has grown to become one of the most sought-after speakers available today. Erik’s on-stage painting seamlessly becomes a visual metaphor to the core of his message, encouraging organizations toward profitability through innovations and superior levels of performance.

THE ART OF VISION ®

The best sustainable edge in business is the ability to differentiate yourself from your competition. Through this entertaining and highly practical program, we will uncover new ways to make your organization more creative, innovative and profitable, but more so, help your employees see the need to become better storytellers within and for your company and industry.

By embracing innovative strategies, professionals at all levels can achieve superior levels of performance by creatively and visibly differentiating themselves from the competition. No matter what kind of organization you have—from a small company to a large corporation—employees at all levels will better able to embrace the future by becoming more innovative, more productive and ultimately more profitable.

THE ART OF LEADERSHIP

Today’s leaders face a pressure to innovate—or else perish—unlike any other time in history.  Advances in social, mobil and cloud technology, coupled with fierce global competition has made the business landscape nearly unrecognizable from what it was a mere 10 years ago.Erik Wahl’s entertaining and invigorating Art of Leadership presentation paints a compelling new portrait for what the successful leaders of tomorrow will look like. He inspires audiences to shed old ways of thinking and “business as usual” processes that are outdated, inefficient and detrimental to productivity. Audience members learn new ways to build an emotional connection to drive future employee engagement.  Erik’s presentation stretches traditional assumptions on leadership. The end results include:

  • innovative solutions to further your organization
  • attracting and engaging quality employees
  • new efficiencies and the end of detrimental redundancies

Growth and comfort cannot co-exist. When leaders come from a place of authenticity, curiosity, exploration and purpose, this leads to more meaningful connections among team members and with clients and customers—and ultimately, a more profitable organization. An engaged employee equals an engaged customer.

UNTHINK ™

Somehow we’ve come to believe that creativity is reserved for the chosen few: the poets, the painters, the writers. The truth is bigger and better than that. Creativity is in all of us. We simply need to rediscover the keys that will unlock our potential. UNthink is the keynote experience that will push members of your organization beyond their traditional thought patterns and habitual levels of performance. UNthink will inspire audiences to realize they are capable of so much more than they have been led to believe.

The UNthink program helps reframe your organization’s thinking so that new creative actions become possible. Learning how to UNthink will inject your daily grind with new passion, allowing employees to see how the organization wants and needs all of their talents and energies, not just the ones they’ve been using so far. You’ll begin the process of rethinking your life as a blank canvas of limitless opportunity on which to create your masterpiece.

THE DISCIPLINE OF CREATIVITY

For many of us, our creative potential got buried long ago, through self-doubt, criticism and lack of use.The discipline of creativity is an innovative training experience designed to help audiences rediscover their beginner’s mind, and approach problem solving with a sense of passion and curiosity. This keynote will give members of your organization the tools they need to dig deep to uncover their unique talents, leading to breakthrough levels of success.

Businesses are most successful when they are pushing the boundaries of their industry, creating new solutions and exceeding customer expectations. This is only possible if members at all levels are working at their creative best. Experiencing the Discipline of Creativity program will form a tribe of artists within your organization who want to create a corporate masterpiece and refuse to settle for anything less than originality, creativity and excellence.
