How to Inspire and Spread Positive Change

Scientist Charles Darwin had it correct when he stated, “The species who survive are those who best adapt to change.” Neither animals, individuals nor organizations can grow without change, so why then do most of us not welcome change … and some even fear it? Dr. Snyder has discovered that people do not fear change – they only fear the uncertainty that change represents. In this engaging and entertaining presentation based on his best-selling book Think Differently, we’ll discover concepts and strategies that will help us inspire and ignite positive change throughout our organization. A guarantee is that participants will think differently about change, be prepared to grow their comfort zone and leave feeling empowered to innovate and ride waves of change! Our organizations can learn quite a bit from Darwin’s finches.

Unleashing Your Inner E.D.G.E.

Success doesn’t just happen. It results from a strategic approach, consistent small wins and a conditioned mindset – what Dr. Snyder coined The E.D.G.E. FACTOR. Easier said than done, but in any results-rule industry, understanding and applying this philosophy will ensure that professionals outshine, outperform and outlast the competition. This presentation is designed and targeted for professionals who are open to learn new ideas, hungry to apply them, and expecting to reap the benefits that will follow.

Motivating the Multi-Generational Workforce

A new generation of professionals has emerged and officially become the majority workforce demographic. This population known as Generation Y, or Millennials, is changing how human resource professionals, executives and managers foster an organizational culture that attracts, develops, retains, and engages cross-generational employees both now and in the future. Some organizations have caught on quickly and others are struggling. Organizations that understand and embrace the needs and perspectives of Generation Y will not only find success in a more engaged and productive workforce, but also avoid significant costs of rapid employee turnover and disengagement. In this interactive presentation tailored for both Millennial and non-Millennial professionals as audience participants, you will discover empowering best practices, ‘next practices,’ and tangible take-a-ways on how the ‘corporate melting pot’ can leverage unique generational mentalities and expectations. You will learn how the arrival of the most hyper-connected, civic-minded and tech-savvy generation has impacted workplace culture and the way work will continue to get done.

Ideal for all audiences (keynote or workshop)
