From transforming the fortunes of a failing school in just two years, to advising governments and corporations such as Google and Microsoft as a thought leader, Richard Gerver has never failed to inspire. His rare ability to connect experiences across many, often seemingly different, environments, combined with his trademark humour and style on stage, help audiences around the globe expand their thinking and their perception of their own potential.
Learning to Love Change
In order to love change, and therefore be able to lead it, we need to feel that we can control it and not be victims of it. It’s about decoding individual triggers, altering your thinking and steering the course of transformation with intentional action and understanding.
In order to achieve simple thinking; a greater clarity and efficiency, we must ensure impactful communication, enhanced climates for problem-solving and decision making, a reduction in stress and a culture of action orientation and adaptability.
A Sense of Direction
What do people and organisations that have enjoyed sustained success have in common? A sense of purpose. In this session, Richard explores how communication, skills development, leadership, and empowerment must be developed and nurtured to encourage a genuine sense of purpose.
Using his unique insights into human development, Richard has translated his work and experience from schools to high performing corporate environments where the ability to risk, learn and develop are vital. Richard argues that it is often the most naturally gifted individuals who struggle with resilience, and that having the confidence to fail and overcome adversity is critical if we are to get the best out of ourselves and our people.
