Primed For Growth: How to Harness Disruption as Fuel For Possibility.

We can all agree that in today’s business world, disruption is the new black. The pace of change is quickening, and we all need to learn to thrive in the face of rapidly-changing, high-stakes, uncertain environments. While there are barriers to that goal we all know exist, the real problem is that this very environment is necessary for growth and innovation, but also tears apart people and culture.

To solve that problem, we have to understand that disruption, while challenging personally, is the gateway to possibility, so rather than kill it, we need to embrace it and train for it.  Which means, to achieve our goal, we have to learn to thrive in disruptive environments.  How? By cultivating shifts in mindset, workflow and environment needed to harness disruption as a force for creation and growth.

In this powerful keynote, attendees will learn to reframe change, uncertainty and disruption as fuel of growth, innovation and possibility, then cultivate the mindset skills and shifts in environment needed to flourish in the face of change.

 

Exquisite Attention: Unlocking Next-Level Leadership, Creativity & Sales.

We’re told that great leadership, creativity and sales are about hard work, devotion, integrity, grit, values and communication. Those things matter, but they’re also all unwittingly constrained by a hidden leadership and sales “X-Factor” that, learned and harnessed, becomes a powerful catalyst for growth.

What is it? Exquisite Attention, or the ability to cultivate an on-demand, hyper-focused, deeply generative and generous state of awareness, then cast it toward a person or team in an authentic way. Think of it as a zone of attention that is so captivating and empowering, so “exquisite,” that it unlocks your own leadership potential, while also inspiring those you lead to work and create on an entirely different level. And, if you’re selling (which all leaders are), it inspires the deep confidence, rapport and trust needed to inspire commitment and action.

In this story-meets science, deep-dive into the world of the Attention Alchemist, award-winning author and founder, Jonathan Fields, reveals a powerful, step-by-step framework, including one key state, 5 critical lenses and 3 super-skills needed to harness the power of Exquisite Attention and unlock leadership, creativity and innovation.

Built to Belong: How to Harness Belonging as Fuel For Growth and Impact.

We are in the throes of a global belonging crisis. And, along with mass pain, it has created a stunning opportunity for those we see what’s happening and are willing to step up and fill the need.

Human beings are wired to belong. When we do, every part of life becomes better. We function at our best. When we don’t belong, we suffer greatly. Problem is, the places that used to provide belonging – often employers, faith-based communities, leagues, clubs and trade organizations – are either going away or no longer satisfying this need effectively.

Within companies and organizations, this leads to cratering retention, morale, fulfillment, productivity and increased health-care costs, leave and levels of anxiety, depression and loneliness.  On a broader level, it leaves tens of millions of people in a state of persistent suffering, in search of their “people.” 

Any business or organization that understands this phenomenon, then does the work to (1) cultivate a culture of belonging and/or (2) create products, services and experiences that give others a sense of belonging will benefit mightily. Question is, how? In this eye-opening keynote, award-winning author and founder of multiple belonging-driven companies, Jonathan Fields, reveals a powerful, proven framework to both build belonging, both internally, and into product.

Don’t Just Build a Living, Build a Life!

Something odd happens when we reach adulthood. We shift from building an extraordinary life to doing whatever is needed to earn a living. All too often this leaves us, years down the road, profoundly unfulfilled on both fronts.

Whether you’re a leader, founder, entrepreneur, employee, professional or creative, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can re-craft your living and life to deliver not just revenue, accomplishment and income (though, of course these matter), but also purpose, possibility and potential.

In this engaging presentation, How to Live a Good Life author, Jonathan Fields, offers a simple, yet powerful, science-based approach to “filling your Good Life Buckets” to becoming more mindful, present and intentional in your life and reconnect with meaning, joy, people and purpose. He teaches you how to not just build a living, but a life.

What event organizers say:

“We were so pleased when you agreed to speak to our associates, but it wasn’t until we heard your presentation that we realized how fortunate we were to have you kick off our 2017 Strategy Session. We wanted this session to set the tone for the year, re-charging and inspiring our managers, and challenging them to work in new, creative ways – and you delivered and then some! Feedback from attendees has been incredibly positive, with comments not only about how valuable your advice was, but also that your tips seemed practical and actionable. Thank you for taking the time to understand our goals for this session and crafting a presentation that so perfectly achieved our desired results. We hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.” – Ronald A. Redmon, Jr., Capital One

“Jonathan came to Charlotte and filled the hearts and minds of our community with perspective-shifting, soul-searching wisdom and insights. The room teemed with hundreds of eager souls (you should have seen our wait list), all there to hear him speak. And each and every one of them went along for the exhilarating ride, because they knew they were in the hands of a master—someone who delivers deep value while being at once authentic, vulnerable, disarming, engaging, challenging, and damn hilarious. Let me put it this way…and I mean this literally: lives were changed that morning.”   – Matt Olin, Host, CreativeMornings/Charlotte

“If you are thinking of hiring Jonathan as a speaker, I have just two words for you. DO IT. Jonathan spoke at our FreedymFest event. And even though the multi-day event had almost 30 speakers, his session was, by far, given the highest rating. It wasn’t even close. In fact, 2 years later, I still get emails from attendees saying how Jonathan’s talk changed their lives. And it’s not just the “content”… it’s the WAY he delivers it. His passion. His humor. And his ability to speak with authority, and yet, with such humility is quite rare.” – Ryan Lee, FREEDYM

“In six years of producing the World Domination Summit (WDS), Jonathan Fields is the only speaker to address our entire community twice. He first served as our closing keynote speaker during year one, and last year we were thrilled when he accepted an invitation to return as the opening keynote speaker. In other years he has also led Academies (half-day workshops) that quickly became the highest attended throughout the history of the event. Jonathan has a genuinely unique way of communicating with groups of people from a stage that make them feel as if they were talking one-on-one. If you get the chance to bring him to your event, don’t hesitate!” – Chris Guillebeau, Word Domination Summit

“Jonathan was granted one of the four coveted speaking slots at the Invitational Consumer Health Summit, a private gathering attended by leading founders and personalities. He used the occasion to debut new marketing theory which held the room spellbound, and also prompted fundamental alterations to many of the attending businesses in the days following. With hindsight of several years, Jonathan’s presentation has proved both memorable and prophetic.”  – Michael Fishman, Consumer Health Summit

“Thanks to you for a fantastic presentation. It was informative, inspiring and entertaining. The perfect kick off for our career development event.  And thank you for being so accessible and flexible along the way. The simulcast was important to reach all of our staff and you pulled it off beautifully.” -Barbara Fitzsimmons, Razorfish

“This guy came in as a favor, at the last minute, and still knocked it out of the park! Jonathan knows how to connect and engage with an audience, and better yet, inspire them to action. Nobody left the room when Jonathan spoke; he drew them in immediately with great storytelling and his passion for the topic” – Terry Starbucker, SOBEvents co-founder

“Jonathan Fields spoke to a room of mostly accountants. His experience and charismatic personality kept the audience interested. He talk was relevant and compelling. I would love to hear him speak again.” -Kerri Stern, Hospitality and Technical Professionals Meeting
