Dr. Mark DeVolder's Speaker Programs:

  • Resilience: Springing to Success
    We live in a VUCA world: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. It's not surprising that leaders who survive, thrive and deliver in business today have one trait in common; they are resilient. But resilience is not just for a few; it can be learned. Mark shares how to rewire your brain to bounce back from adversity, overcome obstacles and adapt to constant change. Audiences will learn success strategies to create a winning mindset, increase tenacity and decision-making instinct.
  • Change: "Harness the Hurricane: Adapt to Extreme Change and Achieve New Heights"
    Change is constant, unpredictable and accelerating. Extreme change can - much like a hurricane - leave you dizzy, disoriented and dazed, as though the earth is moving under your feet. Even if you survive the storm, you know more is coming.
    Help is at hand. Change expert, Dr. Mark DeVolder, throws a lifeline to you, your executive team and employees with change strategies and tools he's developed to clear away the fog. Mark equips audiences with cutting-edge principles that energize people in the midst of change.
    DeVolder's transition model enables people to Accept and Let Go of the past and discover opportunities buried in the rubble. These simple yet profound strategies work. Mark has received rave reviews and accolades from industry leaders on four continents.
    Tighten your safety belts and get ready for a wild ride. During Mark's high-energy presentation, you will:
    • overcome deer in the headlights syndrome
    • defy risk aversion through Mark's Wise-Risk approach
    • adapt for success through creativity, innovation and vulnerability
    • focus clearly with Vision-Renew to see and seize hidden gems
    • implement strategies to increase productivity, profitability and morale immediately
    Get unstuck. Be bold. Grab the rope and harness the hurricane - today!
  • Engagement: "On Fire! Energized Together"
    When individuals lose their spark, organizations lose their fire. This predicament has a devastating effect on productivity, profitability and company reputation.
    But it doesn't have to be that way. Mark's test-driven model of engagement equips people to identify the causes of "flame out" and recognize behaviours and leadership
    decisions that act as a fire extinguisher.
    Mark kindles the process through the pillars of engagement: clarity, competence, influence and appreciation. As relationships strengthen, trust burns brightly.
    Mark shows leaders how to:
    • identify behaviors to increase engagement
    • re-ignite employee's passion for teamwork, communication and innovation
    • build a culture of trust, loyalty and appreciation
    • accelerate performance and productivity
    Recharge your team with Mark DeVolder's industry-tested program. Get your employees and organization on fire.
  • Trust: "Solid Gold: Create a Foundation of Trust"
    Trust is the intangible asset in business today. Yet we live in an increasingly suspicious world. Public trust has been eroded by high-profile scandals involving unethical behaviours, fraudulent investment schemes, covert data collection and phone hacking, to name a few. It is becoming increasingly difficult to sustain customer confidence and loyalty in a transparent world where a small mistake can become a big problem.
    Mark DeVolder presents a compelling business case for the ways that trust affects the bottom line: a company's reputation, its ability to collaborate and innovate, attract and engage employees and respond quickly.
    At the heart of Mark's presentation is this maxim: relationships are based on trust and business is based on relationships.
    You will discover how to:
    • master essential actions that build high levels of trust
    • take the right action quickly to correct a misstep
    • recover trust and regain a client
    • maintain loyal relationships in business
    Unlock the secret of high performing organizations by building sustainable high-trust relationships - no matter what. There's nothing more important.
