Embrace The Shake: Transforming Limitations into Opportunities

Success, especially in today’s fast-changing business environment, depends on our ability to make “creativity and innovation” a continuous process. Leaders want to know how their teams can rise above any challenge and succeed no matter what comes their way. Whether it’s to embrace change, overcome obstacles, sustain growth, or take your success to the next level, they want to “Embrace the Shake”.

The term “Embrace the Shake” is coined from Artist Phil Hansen’s personal story of transformation. After developing a career-ending tremor in his drawing hand, Phil embraced his “shake” both physically and metaphorically by redefining his limitation as an impetus for creativity. Phil not only restored his artistic abilities, he became a much more creative and innovative artist than ever before. Upon sharing his message on the TED stage and millions subsequently after, “Embrace the Shake” has become a motto for many businesses to approach their limitations in a new way.

Phil’s powerful message of finding creativity within limitations will inspire you to stop looking on the outside, and start looking inside yourself for resources that can transform your challenges into opportunities for success. And like Phil’s art, “Embrace the shake” isn’t just a talk, it’s an experience! Through jaw-dropping visuals and LIVE interactive art, get ready to break preconceived assumptions, activate your creative capacity, and bring fresh ways of viewing the task at hand that will culminate with success.

Are you ready to Embrace your Shake?

Learning Outcomes. Your participants will be able to:

Embrace The Shake

Limitations can drive Creativity.

Not your average virtual presentation. Phil brings you into his studio through a mixture of visuals and multi cameras (like a TV production), to make you feel like you’re in the room.

Audiences will feel inspired, engaged with Phil’s personal journey of overcoming adversity. They will learn a new create tool to help them see their own limitations in a new way. His program will help them focus on what they can do to help each other and themselves rather than look for external resources.

Whether your virtual conference is on Zoom, a live private Facebook group, or professionally hosted, Phil will genuinely connect a highly relevant message to your attendees.

What to Expect:

  • Help attendees learn ways to be creative, embrace limitations, deal with change.
  • Inspiring, engaging, interactive.
  • This can be for both for large/small teams and leadership/management meetings.
  • The length can vary 15 minutes to 45 minutes.

After hearing Phil’s talk, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify preconceived assumptions that cause us to believe obstacles have the power to limit success.
  • Manage change through analysis and application of systematic creativity.
  • Reduce stress by turning inwards and looking at how our internal resources can solve the challenges ahead.
