Change Proof: Leveraging the Power of Uncertainty to Build Long-Term Resilience

Unprecedented, chaotic, overwhelming, exhausting. These are the words most frequently used today to describe our personal and professional lives. Let’s face it though, this is not the first time – nor will it be the last – that we will be challenged on a mental, emotional, physical, and yes, even a spiritual level. When we’re not at our best in these areas, we just don’t perform well, leaving creativity, flexibility and innovation on the table. The impact? Our key performance indicators suffer, including revenue and profitability.

Today’s imperative is for our organizations to cultivate our ability to become Change-Proof: having the ability to not just to ride the waves of change – but to shred them and stay on top for the long ride! Resilience is the foundation, both individually and organizationally, for maintaining performance. Research shows that when we develop, practice, and invest in the skills of resilience, the results are improved health, more energy, passion and engagement, lower turnover and greater team innovation and performance.

In this high-energy interactive talk, Adam Markel teaches tangible, impactful strategies and practices to improve our levels of resilience and our capacity to leverage the stress of uncertainty and change to build long-term growth.


Adam Markel, bestselling author, keynote speaker and resilience researcher, guides individuals and organizations to tap the power of resilience to master the challenges of constant change. With 18 years as a trial attorney building a multi-million dollar enterprise and 10 years as the CEO of a leading personal development and business training company, Adam has much to share about resilience, culture and change. As one of Huffington Post’s top speakers to see and the #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Pivot, Adam’s messages have inspired tens of thousands worldwide. His keynotes, corporate workshops, and business mentoring integrate practical business strategies, personal development insights and a unique delivery style to create a high-energy and impactful learning environment. Adam is continuously inspired by his wife of more than 30 years and their four children.

Alternatives During an Insurance Crisis
(Session geared toward managers of all experience levels)

However, recently, coverage access and cost have posed unforeseen challenges for many communities, forcing them to find alternate solutions.
