Key Themes

  • Vision: is one of the greatest tools we have in life. It’s free, it costs nothing and it can bring everything.
  • Mindset: is focusing on what you can control, such as your level of optimism, your attitude and the positives of any situation. Mindset is staying true to your goals and business plan and making adjustments along the way as circumstances change.
  • Grit: is your willingness to be resilient, to maintain your poise and execution across all time horizons—this day, this week, this quarter, this year knowing nothing worth achieving ever comes too easily. It’s your willingness to fail and your unwillingness to quit.

Vision, Mindset, Grit

Because we live in a world that revolves around change, stress and setbacks, learning how to conquer these challenges by having a positive attitude and strong belief system is essential for life balance, success and fulfillment.  Given that most industries are trying to keep up with industry trends, new technologies and the changing dynamics of their industry, it’s important to continually educate ourselves on how we can support each other and maintain a positive outlook and work/life balance.

Throughout this presentation, Scott draws upon three words: vision, mindset and grit—three words when put into action are powerful enough to become part of your organizational strategy.  These words will inspire and motivate your people to shape new beliefs, be more productive and let no circumstances take precedence over the power of the human spirit, personally and professionally!

Using his physical paralysis as a visual metaphor, Scott will show your organization how to drive personal and business results by maintaining poise and execution.
