Every individual and organization can change, given enough time and resources.  In this competitive environment, however, those are precisely the things that are in least supply.  This fast paced how-to-do session is a powerful and practical approach to getting your organization to change and innovate, with the fewest resources, the least resistance, and in the fastest time.

 

This talk can be configured as both a keynote as well as an interactive workshop.  Through careful use of humor, your group will be laughing uproariously one moment, furiously taking notes on how to apply these techniques the next.  The material covered is appropriate for every group within your organization, including Research, Sales, Manufacturing and Support Staff.

 

Specific examples are customized to your audience.  Everyone walks away understanding both how the information relates to their job, and more importantly, what to do about it.  They’ll have techniques that they can apply the very next day, and methods and tools they can use for a lifetime.

 

Some of the Material Covered:

 

·         Understanding change-resistance, and how to move beyond it.

·         Why are so many of the breakthrough ideas developed outside your organization?

·         Specific low cost, low effort techniques for taking advantage of outside innovation.

·         Why are most teams improperly designed for major innovation?

·         The secret to transforming your organization’s ability to change direction: from an ocean liner to a jet ski.

·         How to turbo charge ANY team’s ability to innovate, even if no one on the team is “creative.”

 

“We did a lot of research on outside speakers beforehand… But even the small amount of anxiety I did have was completely uncalled for, as you were great!  And the examples you used together with your delivery (just the right amount of humor) gave us one terrific opening to our second day.”

“Mr. Burkan, from a meeting planner’s perspective you were a terrific person with whom to work.  You tailored your presentation to our industry and audience.  Your presentation kicked the conference off to an excellent, dramatic start.”
