What Dr. Mark DeVolder Talks About: 

Harness the Hurricane: Adapting Faster to Extreme Change
Change is constant, unpredictable and accelerating. Extreme change can - much like a hurricane - leave you dizzy, disoriented and dazed, as though the earth is moving under your feet. Even if you survive the storm, you know more is coming.

Change expert Dr. Mark DeVolder throws a lifeline to you and your team with tools and strategies he’s developed to clear away the fog. You will learn how to rewire your brain to adapt to change, anticipate future trends and persevere in adversity. Mark’s practical principles enable you to act boldly, nimbly and quickly in face of exponential change.

During Mark’s high-octane presentation, you will learn how to:
  • overcome change-paralysis and get mobilized through transitions
  • develop change-ready thinking and behaviours
  • overcome decision-quicksand, making smart-decisions, faster
  • repeat the cycle of success with the unstoppable power of resilience

Unstoppable Resilience: Developing the Mindset of a Champion
Why doesn’t the fastest runner always win the race? Or why doesn’t the smartest person always get the best job? Because it’s not always the ones who “start out the smartest who end up smartest.” (Dweck) It takes more than natural speed, intelligence or ability to be a champion. It takes resilience. But resilience is not just for the elite with an Olympic gold around their neck. Resilience can be learned.

Mark shows leaders how to increase their grit, passion and purpose by developing the mindset of a champion. Mark’s best practices will help you cultivate determination, increase resilience and conquer adversity.

You will learn powerful lessons to help you:

  • create a winning mindset of self-belief and unlimited potential
  • increase innovation and creativity through constructive nonconformity
  • expand tenacity and decision-making responsiveness
  • develop perseverance, positive attitudes and unstoppable resilience

On Fire! Energized Together, Everyone, Every Day
We live in a VUCA world: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. It’s not surprising that leaders who survive, thrive and deliver in business today have one trait in common; they are resilient. But resilience is not just for a few; it can be learned. Mark shares how to rewire your brain and increase neuroplasticity to spring through adversity, overcome obstacles and reinvent yourself. He reveals success strategies that enable you to adapt boldly, nimbly and quickly in midst of constant change.

Mark shows leaders how to:

  • identify behaviors to increase engagement
  • re-ignite employee’s passion for teamwork, communication and innovation
  • build a culture of trust, loyalty and appreciation
  • accelerate performance and productivity

Recharge your team with Mark DeVolder’s industry-tested program. Get your employees and organization on fire.

Getting to Target Zero: Engaging in High-Performance Safety
Hazards and obstacles abound in the fast and frenzied pace of business today. In the rush to stay competitive, people are increasingly tempted to take short cuts and sacrifice safety. The most common barrier, however, is actually change itself. Some employees feel paralyzed by change, and when they feel paralyzed, they disengage. Without the ability or capacity to change, accidents can happen.

During Mark’s high-performance presentation, you will learn how to:

  • get change-right and change-ready
  • defy change paralysis through Mark’s mobilized for safety approach
  • significantly reduce risk of accidents and liability
  • identify behaviours that enhance engagement
  • implement strategies to increase productivity, motivation and safety
