‘Flip This’ Adversity to Achievement – A Proven Approach to Strengthen Resilience and Succeed at the Highest Levels
Every organization faces challenges and today’s pace of change is staggering. Adversity of all sizes is sidetracking our workforce each day. Think personal medical issues, difficult customers – or product failures. Data shows our workforce is struggling. A lack of resilience is eating away at shareholder value, yet most organizations are not even aware of it. Without a deliberate framework in place corporations are losing billions of dollars in lost productivity, low engagement – and sinking morale. Nina calls this a ‘Resilience Epidemic’ – and shares with audiences a systematic way to defend, conquer, and grow from challenges. Organizations can be liberated from the restrictive forces of adversity, allowing them to recover quickly, learn – and ultimately grow stronger.

- Their style of facing adversity

- How to power through day-to-day challenges and stay on track

Superpowers Workshop: The Key to Intergalactic Domination
Get the most from your teams! Take a group of coworkers to a new level of collaboration. This is a team EMPOWERING session. Using superhero analogies – to assess what each person brings to the table – Nina gets teams to appreciate each other’s unique skills in connection with their own. Great teams need science geeks like Spiderman, leaders with a strong moral code like Captain America…even a few rule breakers – like Wolverine. (Yes, she mashes up Marvel and DC Universe to make her point!) This is a fun workshop that will have lasting effects, long after the session wraps.
Her energy is contagious! It's obvious that Nina takes time to prepare. She gives the audience useful advice they can take back to their companies - and use for their personal success too.
