  • How to Reinvent with and Entrepreneurial Mindset - Somewhere along the way, people became convinced that stasis is safer than movement. Consistency feels comfortable; volatility is frightening. Consciously or not, we attempt to protect ourselves against life's volatility by cultivating routine in our lives. But, in this ever-changing world, we are constantly forced to reinvent ourselves. And this reinvention process by very nature requires an entrepreneurial mindset.

    Sometimes an ecosystem can sprout up around a product, like the range of cases, headphones and other paraphernalia that surround the mobile devices. As well, a company can sprout whole economic worlds, as was the case of the App Store-and in that case, the App Store itself was a new platform for Apple. In a very similar sense, ecosystem thinking has become a cornerstone of web publishing-the broad swathe of unpaid contributors creating content for the Huffington Post, BuzzFeed and other publishing platforms do so in exchange for growing their own individual readership and brand.

  • Leading and Transforming in the Age of Creativity and Innovation - With the cascade of new technologies and social changes, we are constantly challenged to spark creativity, drive innovation, and ensure sustainability. What are the remedies? How do we work with ourselves and others? The newest problems of the world find solutions in the oldest timeless practices like mindfulness, authenticity, and devotion- because everything connects.

    Connectivity is a sense of journey, to the sense of purpose-it is an individual, lonely pursuit and a collective, companionable one at the same time. Our individual, interpersonal, and organizational working lives all interconnect. By examining these connections, we learn new ways to create, innovate, adapt and lead. This isn't just a quick fix for your next financial quarter, or a business plan; this is how you succeed in the long run. It is a systemization of your art, science, business and spirituality.

  • Why Leadership is About Poetry and Plumbing -Traditional hierarchical management style is dead. You have an all-star team and vision for miles -what's missing? Bring your focus back to your people's potential with these tips. Nobody succeeds in a silo. Whatever we venture-personal, professional, philanthropic, political or private-we must remember the people involved in and essential to our success.

    Everything Connects is about lessons in leadership, from how to be more present to how technology is changing our worlds. A standout theme contained in this talk is our treatment of each other as humans-not just as employees, supervisors or CEOs-and the success this awareness brings.
