Adam Markel Speaks on The following topics

Change Proof: Leverage the Power of Uncertainty to Build Resilience

Change Proof Book

Unprecedented. Chaotic. Overwhelmed. Exhausted. These are the four most frequently used words to describe how we are all feeling lately. But even those powerful words aren’t strong enough to express how our personal and professional lives have been impacted. And when we can’t access our maximum level of productivity, key performance indicators like revenue and profitability suffer.

To combat this, organizations must become Change Proof and leaders must cultivate resilience on their team. This work can begin with Adam’s high-energy and engaging virtual keynote speech on resilience, where he delivers simple, realistic daily practices that increase resilience and show you how to leverage uncertainty and change to cultivate long-term growth.

Leave the Past Behind to Bounce Toward a Brighter Forward

This past year was extraordinarily challenging for leaders. They had to optimize employee performance while navigating seemingly insurmountable issues stemming from the pandemic and social unrest. We’ve also witnessed a cultural shift where employees, especially millennials, hold different values around a workplace culture of collaboration and productivity. The only way for leaders to continue their forward momentum is by unearthing the capacity to leverage uncertainty and change in order to create long-term growth.

In his highly interactive keynote speech about resilience, The Way Forward, Adam takes his audience down a path of small but mighty PIVOTS that will re-stabilize, re-energize and re-engage their workforce. The tangible and impactful methods he uses will help leaders become Change Proof.

Create a 'Got Your Back' Culture of Care & Collaboration

When your team is too tired, busy or burned out to see past their immediate tasks, the big picture will be outside their scope of vision. This has led to an estimated $62 billion spent annually by organizations on costs stemming from stress and exhaustion. 

Every leader must work for the greater good by developing an organizational capacity that allows employees to not only perform under stress, but to thrive. Adam’s impactful and engaging virtual take on how to create a got-your-back culture is a crucial step in that work. In this keynote, leaders will learn how to engage critical methods that elevate performance capacity and resilience. Your entire team will receive tangible and exciting takeaways that will create a positive impact well into the future. 

Resilience as the Unsung Hero of Your Business

In this deeply personal speech about resilience, Adam brings his audience on a journey to the past as he shares some of the most vital and enduring lessons he learned during the seven years he worked as a lifeguard on a Long Island beach. Through his important perspective on resilience, which he calls the “Resilient Leadership Model,” Adam guides his audience into a deeper understanding of the true meaning of resilience and how to operationalize resilience within your organization.

Through a thoughtful combination of audience participation and powerful stories from today’s headlines, Adam uncovers principles such as creating trust, how to hold employees accountable through love rather than judgment, how to provide authentic feedback in a game-changing way and how to establish systems that create a got-your-back culture.

The P.I.V.O.T. Formula: Embracing Change & the Path of Innovation

Change is life, and life is change. Disruption will always arrive, and if your organization is not prepared to manage it and make the most of it, it will lead to a very uncomfortable ride for everybody. Embrace the journey by cultivating a pivot-ready culture, which combats mediocrity and ensures your organization’s long-term success and survival. In this thought-provoking resilience speech, Adam shares how our innate ability as humans to reinvent and innovate—what he refers to, in his #1 WSJ bestseller called Pivot, as “PIVOT-ability”—is vital to business longevity and stability.

You will learn how to embrace small changes that lead to increased productivity, leverage a regeneration process to build resilience into your organization, shift away from the old paradigm success formula to encourage your team to reach new heights and disrupt the fear of change to shatter the status quo.
