The Heart of Innovation & Entrepreneurship

What makes an entrepreneur successful? What do entrepreneurs do to perform at the highest level? Entrepreneurial thinking can be easily developed by everyone and is far more than creative thinking, idea generation or brain-storming techniques.

What makes serial entrepreneurs successful is their personal mindset. They have an internal process that develops their mindset to perform at the highest level. And it is much more than their ability to tolerate high risk or failure. The entrepreneur develops their personal mindset from an inner perspective; they trust that clarity will emerge from intuition to inform the initial idea or vision for a business.

What you will learn:

  • The ability to generate breakthrough ideas – fast!
  • Cognitive fitness – retrain your brain to excel!
  • Develop resilience and lower stress
  • Certainty of and flexibility in decision-making
  • Greater personal effectiveness

The Power of the Aha moment – how you can have insights on demand

Did you know that 95% of insights arise beyond the conscious mind – we are aware of 5% only!  Insight, the ability to see clearly about a complex situation or issue is a critical skill for today’s managers and leaders. At the heart of every insight is intuition – the Aha moment that leads to a breakthrough bringing clarity and wisdom for you.

Complexity, ambiguity, and disruption require deep insights to navigate through uncertainty. We are rewiring our brains by constantly being reliant on historical data and resisting change. True visionaries have the ability to have insights on demand.

In environments of complexity, increasing ambiguity with too much or too little information, our brain literally changes, reducing connections between neurons leading to a decrease in our ability to make clear decisions and to work effectively, particularly under stressful conditions. Technology and connectivity 24/7 results in short term attention spans for people who are unable to clearly focus and make decisions easily, often blocking access to creativity and innovative thinking. We have natural ability to access multiple levels of intelligence and improve our mind’s performance. This presentation is specifically designed for business leaders and professionals delivering ways to rewire your neural pathways and to re-balance your mind, and de-stress, easily.
