Accelerating Change

Change is occurring at a blistering pace, leaving many businesses unprepared. Wave after wave of technological breakthroughs have revolutionized entire industries overnight. Wrenching political changes around the world are bringing new opportunities and fresh risks. Competition in global markets is growing fiercer by the day. More sophisticated customers expect ever-higher levels of quality, customization, convenience, and timeliness.

The business climate has and will experience continued turbulence. New regulatory challenges as well as lingering economic uncertainty possess significant challenges. Success will depend not only on size, but also on speed and competitiveness to capitalize on fast-moving changes in markets, technologies, and the general business landscape.

Accelerating Change reveals proven strategies and tools to anticipate, drive and capitalize on change. This is Michael’s most requested and popular topic. He has delivered over 500 Keynotes on this topic.

 

Champions of Innovation

Is your firm leading, managing and creating a culture for innovation success and business breakthroughs in this new global marketplace? Innovation is essential to compete in the global arena. To stay ahead of the curve, organizations need to redefine the rules of innovation and build a culture that inspires innovation. How can you ensure your idea-generators dedicate themselves to your company rather than taking their cutting edge management notions to rival firms? Champions of Innovation reveals the new tools that enable you to harness an explosion of new, productive, innovative ideas in a changing world.  Discover how to champion change, generate innovative solutions, reinvent your business model, and compete successfully in an ever-demanding global environment.  This presentation is highlighted by rich illustrations of business trailblazers who charted a course into uncharted territory and brought glory to their names and phenomenal opportunities to their companies.  Michael has spoken on this topic over 300 times.

 

Competitive Advantage: How to Get it and Keep it

Rapidly changing technology, market saturation, unexpected competition, and economic uncertainties – these all make succeeding in business harder than ever today.  Companies that are ahead of the curve have a high intensity and consistent focus on markets, customers and competition. Building competitive advantage is not enough.  You have to sustain it.

The source of competitive advantage is a constantly moving target.  The best competitors know how to keep moving, adapt quickly to meet market and technology changes, and stay on the cutting edge.

 

Leadership…in the Eye of the Storm!

A changing business environment requires an increasingly high level of human performance within an ever-more complex business world.  Leadership…in the Eye of the Storm details cutting-edge tools and strategies leaders use during turbulent times to tap and optimize the talents and skills of those around them – stimulating high performance, sparking creativity and imagination, encouraging teamwork and inspiring loyalty.

The key is stepping up to the task of creating an environment in which people want to, and can, perform at the highest levels of their potential.  This presentation provides participants with the perspectives, strategies and tactics to shape both their personal destinies and their organization’s futures in an age of complexity and uncertainty.

 

Lessons from Legendary Leaders

Throughout history, great leaders have understood that change brings tremendous opportunities as well as fresh risks.  In this presentation, Michael shares ideas on how great leaders throughout the ages…from the ball field to the boardroom, from politics to science, learned to survive- and even thrive- during turbulent times by adhering to timeless principles and maintaining flexible visions.

While clearly “the past is not prologue”, we can still learn the characteristics that lead to abiding success from great leaders in all walks of life.  They all consistently communicate vision, inspiration, courage and character…critical components for leadership greatness.  Lessons from Legendary Leaders provides a blueprint for true leadership.
