His main Keynote “Impact-oriented individuals, Impact-focus Organizations and Impacted Societies” is a revolutionary look at how we can re-engineer our contribution to today’s society by re-assessing our focus and goals.
Whilst using great story telling techniques he drives the point that – meeting goals is not enough: we are all called to be impact-oriented. He shares 3 amazing stories of individuals, teams and societies that not only impacted their immediate spheres of influence but produced results that have cascaded hope over decades.
His premise is that our employees should transcend beyond merely meeting individual goals assigned to them by managers, teams should transcend beyond organizational goals, businesses should exist beyond the frameworks set by their boards.
Our future can only be preserved by a deliberate trumping of the traditional goal -oriented success model. Impact orientation is a longer-term measure of real success!
The tools suggested in the speech are practical and can be applied at a family, team, corporate and community level.
He focuses on how Kaizens – a Japanese model of process improvement – can be successfully integrated into the fabric of how we run our lives, teams and organizations.
