What Eileen McDargh Talks About:

Radical Resilience: Staying Rightside Up In A World That's Upside Down
Radically turbulent times demand professional and personal responses that transcend our regular work and life patterns. It's not about happy faces on mirrors and mantras on coffee mugs. It's not about hanging on while holding back. It's about times when you feel someone ate your cheese, drained the swamp, and went from great to less-than-good.

Radical resilience requires the courage to challenge, commit, and contribute in ways that positively impact both today as well as many tomorrows. Based upon the length of the presentation, participants will:

  • Discover how to grow the skills of adaptability, agility, laugh-ability, and alignment for producing results that put YOU in control of your ship.
  • Learn a four-part model for methodically tackling the tough issues you currently face.
  • Explore what great leaders do to inspire teams to stay in the game and thrive. (And it has NOTHING to do with money!) Get them energized, actualized, authorized, and gratified.
  • Develop a personal legacy leadership goal that defies downturns and disappointments.

From senior executives to front line employees, this issue is key to the changing nature of America's workforce and today's world. We hear about the need to balance personal and work priorities, but how do you go from burned out to fired up? How can we juggle the many responsibilities and demands on our busy lives?
