Convocation event: Break Through Adversity to Thrive Through Change

If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is that life is fragile and “tomorrow” is not guaranteed. Some of us may take the adversity as an opportunity to change and to thrive; whereas others may simply give up and wither away. 

 

When facing adversity, how can we break through it to not only survive but to thrive? Mark will tell his personal story of  battling a life-threatening disease, surviving a heart & double-lung transplant, and recovering to run 4 marathons and winning 6 gold medals at the Special Olympics. Mark will provide a framework and an essential tool for success despite the odds, and he will offer a powerful dose of inspiration and excuse-eliminating motivation, in the process. 

 

At the end of Mark’s presentation, the audience will be able to:

 

  • Re-frame challenges to create powerful opportunities for innovation and growth 
  • Eliminate distractions and excuses that impede success  
  • Where to invest time and energy to impact the metrics that matter
  • Create milestones and goals that actually drive results  
  • Develop an implementable action plan 

Monday, April 12 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm
