Harnessing the Hurricane: Adapting Faster to Extreme Change

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 adapt to change, anticipate future trends and persevere in adversity. Mark’s practical principles enable you to act boldly, nimbly and quickly in face of exponential change.

Unstoppable Resilience: Developing the Mindset of a Champion

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.

On Fire! Energized Together, Everyone, Every Day

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 and leadership decisions that act as a fire extinguisher.

Mark kindles the process through the pillars of engagement: clarity, competence, influence, and appreciation. As relationships strengthen, trust burns brightly.

Getting to Target Zero: Engaging High-Performance Safety

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.

The most common barrier, however, is actually change itself. Some employees feel paralyzed by change, and when they feel paralyzed, they disengage. Without the ability or capacity to change, accidents can happen.

Mark DeVolder’s proven transition model enables people to accept new practices and let go of the unsafe past. As people become Change Ready their level of engagement rises. DeVolder supports this progression with his easy to apply strategy increase clarity, competence, influence, and appreciation.
