Where is This Economy Headed?

The question on everyone’s mind: Where are the U.S and global economies going? The economic picture can change dramatically with a single tweet, and Geoff Colvin covers it in depth from his perch at Fortune.

  • CEOs and ordinary consumers saying the same thing “there’s too much change, too fast, we can’t keep up up.” Long gone are the days when we could easily anticipate the changes ahead, but now a meltdown of financial markets in China can ripple globally and take down a trillion dollars in assets in a single day – and such volatility is becoming more common.
  • Geoff helps audience members make sense of the forces driving economic change and offers a glimpse of where each may take you and your business.

Talent is Overrated- How Great Performers Really Got Great

Scientific research on great performance shows that what most of us believe about hard work and raw talent is off-base. This means that most of us will never perform as well as we could.

  • Geoff explains the findings and relates them to real life in real organizations, how many organizations value the wrong things, and how to appropriately put those efforts into a greater cause.
  • Passion, honesty and learning are more valuable than hours, IQ, or “native ability”.
  • Speaker Geoff demonstrates that world-class performances come from behaviors that every person and organization can adopt.
  • Those who apply these principles gain a tremendous competitive advantage and Geoff cites relevant examples to prove it while launching an important conversation in your organization.
