WE INTERRUPT THIS BROADCAST...
Leadership in a world of chaos.
Being present is rarely mentioned when people discuss leadership. There’s an abundance of advice on how to accomplish goals in life and in business, but much of it fails to tackle one of the primary challenges we all face – dealing with the reality of now. Being present is the foundation of leadership presence.
You may not know what’s coming – or when - but you can be sure that change will continue and the pace will increase. Focusing your attention on what’s really happening in the present is a simple idea, but not so easy to achieve. Most of us spend our time and energy on examining the past or forecasting the future; remembering, judging, regretting - anticipating, planning, expecting. Success is in leveraging the opportunity of the present. All that matters is now.
“We Interrupt This Broadcast” is the heart-stopping phrase that commands your immediate attention and signals life as you know it is about to change. It’s also the title of six-time New York Times bestselling author Joe Garner’s groundbreaking book about the defining moments of our times.
As a result of his extensive research, including hundreds of interviews with the people at the center of these historic events, Joe has developed a fully customized, interactive, multimedia presentation that offers rare insights and actionable techniques for staying present in times of great change. In a dynamic presentation that’s been described as ‘electrifying,’ ‘riveting,’ and ‘thought-changing,’ Joe’s stories and approach will help you and your team improve the ‘right now’, by recognizing the opportunities of the present, and avoiding the distracting temptation of focusing on past success and where you hope you’ll be someday.
Change doesn’t build leadership character…it reveals it. Through examples of the real life moments and people he’s studied, Joe prepares you to survive, thrive and lead in times of change.
- How to trigger a mindset of ‘acceptance’ to withstand the blow of unexpected change.
- How to transform feelings of regret in loss with the resiliency in purpose.
- How remaining mindful of transience will help you lead and engage more deeply in the present.
- Five daily character building exercises that will fully prepare you for whatever change comes your way.
