Extreme Change: Adapt, Overcome and Win As One
Change is the only thing that stays the same. It is our response to that change that dictates our success. How do the world's most consistently high performing teams ALWAYS find a way to get to the finish line or achieve their goals against all odds? Are they lucky, blessed, immune to setbacks?
Nope. The best of the best experience times of great turbulence and upheaval just like everyone else.
It’s their attitude and mindset that makes or breaks the team. Is your team ruled by the hope of success or the fear of failure? Winning and 'not losing' are two completely different mind sets that lead to vastly different outcomes. In Robyn's Extreme Change keynote, she shares incredible stories of triumph through adversity and outlines the simple and concrete methods that world class teams utilize to shatter the norm, see challenges versus roadblocks and embrace setbacks as a chance to learn and excel.
