The 7 Secrets to Thriving on Massive Change


Either you’re the disruptor or the disruptee. You’re either doing the disrupting or you’re being disrupted. It’s binary. Neutral is not a gear you can move forward in. Whatever you do and wherever you are, you must find reasons to love the process. Passion fuels excellence. Disruption demands an acute sensitivity to opportunity combined with a fierce commitment to execution. It demands  skill and joie de vivre in equal measure.
Mike Lipkin is uniquely qualified to coach you on how to dance with disruption. He not only studies disruptors for a living, he works with them. He talks to hundreds of them every year. He acts as a co-pilot for many of them on their flight paths. Together with his fellow wizards in the Environics Group, he also researches the trends that are defining the new realities.
In this moonshot program, Mike will coach you on how to adapt, navigate and pivot in a way that inspires, delights and thrills others. He will reveal the seven secrets to thriving on massive change so the most desirable people want to work only with you.

 Understanding Yourself and Others as “Differently Right”

Let’s face it, there are people and topics that at some point are just off limits.  You just can’t do it or them right now.  Even worse, often it is a difficult topic that you have to bring up with a difficult person.  What if you could engage in these conversations with more confidence, humor, and ease?  No matter the person or topic, you are your best tool for conversations that matter.  Understanding your self and others as differently right gives you the tools to intentionally design teams, groups, and partnerships that can bring value to a single project or topic.  We are all frustrating to someone, and at times even to ourselves.  Once you know who and how you are, you can reclaim responsibility for these behavior response patterns and leave room for others to do the same.  Before you know it, you are having better conversations and fuller relationships with those around you.  I promise – it is that easy.
