Paul Stoltz When It's Intense, It's All or Nothing

Dr. Paul Stoltz, Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Paul G. Stoltz is the world’s leading expert on measuring and strengthening human resilience. He is author of three international bestselling books on the subject — printed in 14 languages — and was voted by Executive Excellence as “One of the 100 Most Influential Thinkers of Our Time.”

He will be a guest lecturer for a Harvard Business School Executive Education program in May 2009. HBS incorporates Dr. Stoltz’s AQ theory and methods into its High Potentials Leadership Program and Program for Leadership Development.

Today, AQ is the most widely adopted resilience building method in the world, currently in use by industry-leading companies and many governments across the globe. In 1987, Dr. Stoltz founded PEAK Learning, Inc., a global research and consulting firm, through which he coaches, consults, teaches, and collaborates with top leaders, thinkers, and influencers within a broad range of organizations from start-ups and NGO’s to the Young Presidents’ Organization and the Fortune 100 on six continents.

As a highly sought-after thought leader, presenter and teacher, Dr. Stoltz combines inspiration with application, delivering a compelling and practical message to audiences of 10 to 10,000 people. As PEAK’s global reach grows, Dr. Stoltz remains highly active in the classroom, teaching AQ to groups of all levels and sizes in a broad range of indoor and outdoor settings, including some of the largest venues in the world.

As Director of the Global Resilience Project, Dr. Stoltz oversees a research agenda in twenty-one countries dedicated to exploring, expanding, and advancing the applications of AQ to strengthen people and their organizations. His research partners include top thinkers at Yale University, Stanford University, and more than a dozen universities overseas.

He has been a member of Stanford University’s Distinguished Leaders Lecture Series, was selected as the Millennial Thinker for Singapore, “Thought Leader of the Year” in Hong Kong, is a top-rated international faculty member for the Young Presidents’ Organization, and is a frequently sought after resource for the world’s top media inclu

Thriving on Adversity

Our signature keynote address gives a compelling overview of Adversity Quotient® (AQ®). We describe how AQ drives performance, resilience, and success, and we discuss how to begin strengthening AQ to thrive on adversity. Highly tailored to each group, participants leave with tools they can use immediately to tackle their next challenge and optimize their next opportunity.

Leading Through Adversity

It is through adversity that leadership shines forth. Demanding times call for leaders with exceptional fortitude, tenacity, and resolve. This keynote address draws from dramatic examples of how great leaders across the ages, world, and industries use AQ to lead through adversity and unleash the greatness in others.

Resilient Sales and Service

Imagine how a more resilient sales and service organization could drive your results! When it comes to selling, skills and personality are no longer enough. AQ predicts sales performance and retention across industries and countries. This keynote address reveals to sales people and executives what it really takes to achieve and sustain top performance, even in the most difficult circumstances. People gain tools that they can use to surmount their obstacles with renewed focus and vigor.

Creating Resilient Teams

Resilient teams thrive on challenges and deliver superior performance. Resilient teams are at their best when times are tough. They rise to challenges and are inspired by seemingly insurmountable odds and daunting obstacles. They are the ones that get things done when others cannot. This keynote address provides practical insight into what it takes to form and grow a high performance, resilient team.

The Invincible Investor

Tailored to the financial services market, the Invincible Investor® keynote introduces the landmark science and practice of investor resilience. In a time of tremendous volatility and uncertainty, investors and their advisors need new tools to protect and grow what matters most, no matter what. This keynote presentation introduces a whole new way to think and talk about how we relate to money in our lives.

Creating the Resilient Workforce

How would it affect your business if people could be measurably more resilient? For those who shape the workforce in any way, this keynote presentation draws from leading science on AQ and resilience. It introduces practical, new methods for transforming your current workforce into one that can not only withstand any setback or challenge but also bounce back and benefit from such situations.

Hiring Resilient People

Selecting people who can persevere and thrive in the face of adversity creates a powerful advantage for any organization. This keynote draws from the science of AQ and reveals simple steps for quickly identifying those who will deliver superior results in demanding circumstances. AQ predicts performance, improvement, innovation, problem solving, sales, “promotability,” optimism, and overall resilience.
