Adam’s Pivot session with us was terrific – compelling, high-energy and thought-provoking. After an initial few minutes of discomfort – ‘oh gosh, you mean I have to participate?’ – folks really got into it, and told us later how much they appreciated the interactivity. Three weeks later, I’m still hearing ‘thank you’ from our members!

Embracing Change: How to Create a True Culture of Innovation

In today’s business environment, change happens quickly. The challenge is that most company cultures reward conservative thinking and may even penalize those who attempt to implement innovative, but unproven ideas. The result is often a creeping mediocrity which threatens an organization’s long term profits and even its very survival.

In this engaging and practical presentation, Adam shows his audience how to create a culture that stimulates innovation by implementing proper accountability, effective feedback and safe spaces for creative thought.

Engage!: Innovative Ways to Get the Most From Your Employees

Businesses spend nearly a billion dollars a year in employee engagement initiatives, but statistics show that 55% of employees are not only disengaged, but actively looking for other employment. How can organizations create a culture where people are mentally and emotionally involved in their work, especially when typical engagement strategies are no longer effective?

In this highly energetic and insightful presentation, Adam reveals how leaders can cultivate employee trust, buy-in, and innovative expression by emphasizing proper accountability, healthy conflict and building emotional safety.

Stop Closing and Start Listening: The Secret to Building Sales Through Relationships

The traditional model of sales is to “always be closing”, but the fact is that high pressure tactics no longer work in today’s sophisticated marketplace. Rather than concentrate on simply closing deals, organizations should emphasize meaningful communications that effectively increase sales through strong word-of-mouth referrals and repeat business.

In this interactive and engaging talk, Adam demonstrates how to deliver authentic and powerful enrollment conversations that create new customers and help retain existing ones.
