Engage and Inspire Your Audience with a Powerful, New Approach in Today's Disruptive World

How Do I Get There From Here?

When the Old Rules No Longer Apply
How well are the solutions, experience and tools that have reliably served you in the past going to help you plan and manage your future?

Which parts of your past experience will dependably serve you well as you move forward? How will some cause you to stumble and fall?

Based on George’s latest book, How Do I Get There From Here?, this speech addresses head-on the reality that life can’t and won’t be a linear extension of what you’ve known up until now. Change – continuous and disruptive - is happening all around us, faster than we can comprehend or adapt. Opportunities – continuous and disruptive - will need to be identified and evaluated. When long term planning is no longer possible, our professional and personal futures require hand crafting our way forward. Now is the time to start.

Tailored to your specific audience, this presentation offers practical, actionable information on how to do just that.

Incremental Planning and Savoring Uncertainty

Navigating Our Disruptive New Normal
Does your audience have the essential information and tools they need to plan incrementally, adapt readily, and seize disruptive opportunity? It’s one thing to notice there is lots of change all around us. Understanding what is really going on and working with it effectively is something else entirely.

Based on George’s latest book, How Do I Get There From Here When The Old Rules No Longer Apply?, this speech directly addresses that what you used to create success and stability in the past may no longer work. In fact, it might stop you cold. If successful long term planning is no longer possible, what is our best alternative and how does it work? Adaptability, hand crafting our personal and professional success, as well as our organizations' success, and paying attention to the right cues are emerging keys. Becoming “change-ambidextrous” is essential. So is savoring the inevitable uncertainties of ongoing, disruptive change. Now is the time to start acquiring the important skills and useful tools you’ll need.

Tailored to your specific audience, this presentation offers practical, actionable information to accomplish exactly that.
