The global pandemic has created a period of change that is by all accounts disruptive, unrelenting, and at times completely debilitating. Leaders, teams and individual contributors alike are in uncharted waters and the one integral, unifying thread is our humanity. We are in a place where we need to look at how this change is affecting us as individuals first, and then translate that change into our respective roles. While we cannot always choose what change will come in our path, with the right mindset and strategies, we can choose how to move forward. This is Dr. Gary Bradt’s goal, as he shares the Five Fundamental Choices that change presents us with, and that how you choose to go forward will make a bigger impact on your life than the change itself.

Dr. Bradt’s insights are informed by neuroscience and psychology, as well as his three decades of experience as a C-suite executive coach that provide relatable, real-world narratives, and relevant actionable strategies to give you a new path forward.

Gary was very down to earth and easy to work with. Our attendees enjoyed his use of his life experiences to highlight his topic of handling change and stress. Some of the exercises we were given made us dig deep inside and opened my eyes to my own thoughts and priorities. Gary was the most genuine keynote speaker we’ve ever had.

I hope you (finally) made it out of Hawaii and home safely. I just wanted to pass along my gratitude once again for coming out and addressing our group. The feedback has been tremendous, and everyone felt it was among the best keynotes we’ve ever had at our Convention. I shared with Larry’s wife some of your presentation comments and personal story and she was deeply touched by your message and how much Larry would have enjoyed listening to you (and sharing stories of watching your sons play hockey).
Again, thank you so much for your time and partnership in helping make this a fantastic event for our advisors and managers.
