English naturalist and evolutionary theorist Charles Darwin famously said, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives or the most intelligent, but the one most adaptable to change.”
Master storyteller and inspirational motivational speaker Yossi Ghinsberg’s keynote on change is not a lecture but rather a recounting of his journey. Through chronicling his own experiences of survival and innovative thinking, Yossi takes his audiences far away from their everyday reality and gives them a different perspective on what change really is and how to use it effectively.
In today’s global corporate climate, the famous adage that, “change is the only constant” is a mantra all business leaders and workers need to keep foremost in their minds. All business sectors, from industry, retail, and finance to technology, healthcare, and media need to deal with constantly evolving economies and societies.
Businesses — and more importantly the people in business — need to be able to change as society changes. They need to adapt as products, wants, and needs change. History is littered with the bones of businesses that failed to change fast enough. They may well have been the best of their time, perhaps even the best in their field, but the playing fields have a way of constantly changing. Where are the best cassette tape manufacturers now? Or the best push lawn mower companies? Did they fly on the winds of change or stay rooted to the ground and watch as their competition took flight?
Indeed, impermanence is the essence of our existence in a modern world that is always in flux. How then, as inherent and inevitable as change is, is it perceived by many individuals and organizations as a problem?
Accepting change as a natural phenomenon is the basis of sanity. Knowing how to move along with the flow of change is a great virtue. This most basic and relevant wisdom about change can help us better manage our work and our lives.
Yossi illustrates that surrendering to the power of change doesn’t mean one is helpless or powerless. On the contrary, change always represents opportunity for growth.
Individuals and organizations will always be faced with change. Yossi’s insights can help everyone see change in a positive way: not as an obstacle to be overcome, but an opportunity to be grasped. Inquire about booking Yossi to speak about Sailing the Seas of Change today.
