Dynamics of Change

The Pressure Points
(75 - 90 minutes)
In corporate life the calendar, inevitable changes within the institution, and varying dynamics between colleagues can and will generate pressurized intersections where deadlines, expectations, exhaustion and energy converge. This talk aims to identify some of these common points and offers several ways to deal with the pressure and move forward with success.

Fifty Years of Change
(75 - 90 minutes)
Over the past 50 years countless world-altering events have occured which have impacted and changed our lives. “Electro-technical” developments alone have wielded enormous influences on how we think and live. This presentation aims to explore those changes and to encourage a healthy 21st Century approach to dealing with them.

Battling the 'No People'
(75 - 90 minutes)
Making a case for change and innovation while working within the structure and intensity of institutional life can generate responses that may resist or repel your ideas at every turn. What is this reluctance all about? How can new ideas find their way to serious consideration? This talk draws these two questions out of the “battle” and onto the table.

Issues for Our Time
(75 – 90 minutes)
Every generation has its issues. Consider Nick's list for the decade and his dynamic challenge for us all!

Team Play

Dealing With Conflict
(75 - 90 minutes)
Even under the best working circumstances, issues of conflict do arise. Whether the dispute is a simple misunderstanding or a “personal power” problem, conflict can have a tremendous and costly negative impact. This presentation explores the sources of conflict, ways to deal with it, and offers suggestions that aim toward thoughtful and healthy resolution.

Touring With a Rock Band
(75 - 90 minutes)
The product of the rock band is their music. The excitement of the tour is offset by countless hours on the road, weeks of living in close quarters, and the inherent pressures of performance. All of these stressful demands can become a heavy burden to the individuals of the traveling troop, which they will inevitably deal with in their own distinctive ways. This talk identifies those dynamics and draws a parallel to the corporate setting.

How To Fly A Small Airplane
(75 – 90 minutes)
When any group gets organized, shares goals and establishes a common vision, there are measuring instruments required to “keep it all up in the air.” This presentation describes those instruments and their application in the team-building dynamic.

Turning It Around
(75 – 90 minutes)
Personal and corporate motion can run out of energy and lethargically struggle towards the end of the line. Having the ability to recognize this loss of vigor and applying the trust and resources to reenergize the process is part of a formula for success. Aspects of that formula are presented in this talk aimed at developing a practical working model.

Healthy Perspective

Keeping It In Perspective
(75 – 90 minutes)
This presentation focuses on the shortness and uncertainty of human life, and our responsibility to live our lives as fully and richly possible with that in mind.

A Rule Of Life
(75 – 90 minutes)
The intensity of the workplace, combined with personal life issues, can be complex as well as physically and emotionally draining. This talk encourages the development of a "personal rule" as part of a healthy self-prescription.

The Art of Levitation
(75 – 90 minutes)
This presentation aims at our ability to rise above the pressure of expectations and corporate dynamics through self-care and discipline and encourages "people-professionals" to make a positive, self re-investment into their work.

Five Very Important Questions
(75 – 90 minutes)
Reaching for the highest potential requires a strong sense of self. It all begins with these five questions: 1. What do I want? 2. What is “the world?” 3. What are my issues? 4. Why am I here? 5. Now what?
