The Invincible Self: How to develop the resilience, grit, and stamina to thrive
Invincibility is the ability to respond to life’s challenges and indignities in a way that makes us stronger and more capable in the present—and the future. Invincible people have habits that make them happier, healthier, and wealthier. However, invincible people are not always happy, nor are they immune from tragedies. They hurt, doubt, suffer loss, experience betrayal, fail, fear, get depressed, question why, and regret some of their choices just like everyone else. Invincible people do not claim special exemption from life’s twists and indignities. They know that bad things happen to them and their loved ones. Yet, bad things do not define them. Invincibility is not for the endowed few. It is at the core of who we are. Dave shares discoveries in science that show how you our cells, muscles, thoughts, and even our brain’s networking can change to make us more invincible. And while it is true that we all have different starting points because of genetics, predispositions, and life experiences, we are not predetermined in what we can learn or achieve. We start where we are and take the next step.

How Leaders Create The Future
The need to change has increased but people's willingness to change is down. With so many changes, many people take a "wait it out" mindset in hopes that it will all just go a away. While leaders are seeing the absolute need to change, so many people just see more work and hassle.
Leaders must help their people let go of the current story about change and embrace a new story about the future. Until a leader can tip the balance in people's minds there is no change.
Fortunately, there are known actions leaders can take to get the buy-in they need. Dave combines the research of organization change, personal resilience, and brain science to make change easier.

"Who you become from being a leader is as important as what you do as a leader."
Excerpt from Catapulted: How Leaders Succeed Beyond Their Experience by Dave Jennings
How Leaders Show Up, Build Relationships, and Deliver Results
How you "Show Up" as a leader influences everything you achieve. And as much as we try to ignore it, so much of leadership success comes back to communication.
It’s the small and big things you do that determine results. Who you spend time with, what you talk about, and how you talk it all send messages that tell people if they should follow you. The way you create connection or distance each day affects your ability to build relationships, increase discretionary effort, and develop influence.
Your ability to connect, clarify expectations, really listen, provide feedback, receive feedback, make apologies, and express appreciation contribute to a more productive environment. Dave provides insights on all these essentials and provides his Million Dollar Feedback Formula, a proven way to change relationships and enhance skills.
Dave transforms the way you look at yourself and gives you powerful options to respond more effectively to the world around you.
