NEW! The Resilience Factor

Equipping yourself and others with the essential tools that keep us moving forward when things are uncertain, constantly changing, and continually challenging.

Imagine you and your team are preparing to climb a mountain, and you know it’s going to be a difficult climb in unpredictable weather and other circumstances.

On this climb, you expect setbacks, uncertainty, and stress but you are confident with the right tools and the right attitude you and your team will arrive at the peak safely. You have been inspired by pictures of other teams who have reached the peak and celebrated together, as a team. So, the question is, what mental and emotional tools do you pack to keep everyone on your team encouraged, focused, and resilient? What lessons can you learn from people who endured challenges in the past and achieved success?
In this session, Sam Glenn will highlight the key components of resilience that empower, encourage, and equip your team for a successful (metaphorical) mountain climbing expedition. Sam will share practical tips that can be implemented today to begin the process of immediate individual improvement (remove this comma) and ultimately succeed together as a team. A team is only as strong as its weakest climber, and Sam will share easy-to-implement ideas to strengthen your team as a whole. 

Giving up is not an option, but working together is a choice we have the opportunity to make every day! When we continue to improve both personally and professionally, both individually and as a team, we can reach peaks that we never imagined were even possible. We do not choose to live in unpredictable times but we do choose, each day, how we will approach the day and the challenges that come with it. Our attitude is the defining factor not only in our own lives but in the lives of those around us. 

Sam is an expert in inspiring resilience, sharing practical/easy to implement ideas, and rallying teams. Through humor and a one-of-a-kind art performance Sam keeps audiences captivated throughout his entire fully customized keynotes. 

If anyone knows how to rally and inspire resilience, it's Sam Glenn.  So contact our office and let us customize the right resilience message that hits a home run for your group and meeting.

Motivated by Art ©

You know what’s fun, educational, empowering and inspirational?   Sam Glenn’s new speech – Motivated by Art©  Sam is the only performance artist that we know of who speaks while he paints.  This is not a speed painting, but rather an experience to learn some personal and professional lessons from a creative and visual perspective.  

Bonus – The artwork belongs to you when Sam is done!  
Double Bonus – Everyone will receive a mini-print of the artwork!   
Please keep in mind, that once you hire Sam, you and Sam will discuss how to customize this experience. 

Sam is a self-taught abstract artist who uses his art to communicate that life can be messy, but with the right perspective, we can discover an uplifting message and masterpiece within our messes.  A mess can be change, pressure, uncertainty, a bad day, or anything that just throws you off track.  We can all agree, life can be messy from time to time, so how we think in the mess determines if things stay a mess or things become something better.  When we think better, we make our work and life better. 

Motivated by Art © is fun and engaging perspective on how our daily perspective is either working for us or against us – research calls it emotional management. 

So, can we really learn something helpful and be inspired by a simple painting?  You bet! Sam Glenn has proof.  Sam will paint a picture LIVE. The process demonstrates how our thinking can transform a mess into a meaningful message and a masterpiece.  

At one time, Sam’s life was a mess!

Be Your Own Real Life Superhero

In-Person or Virtual

"I really needed that today. I feel like I can breathe again.”  - OK Safety Council Virtual Conference

“Look up in the air, it’s a bird, it’s a plane…no wait…it’s Sam Glenn…I mean Batman!”

If you could be any superhero, who would you be?

I pick Batman.

This is a fun, fun, fun keynote speech that recognizes our inner superhero.

Real life superheroes don’t wear capes. (However, they are optional on Friday’s or casual days.) Each of us has the ability to make a positive impact with the superpowers we have.  Being a real life superhero isn’t like the movies, it’s about doing the little things with a superhero attitude.

Being a real life superhero…

Means you may not get credit for your efforts, but you keep doing your best anyways. 

Is about looking for opportunities to contribute, take initiative and help out. 

Is about setting an example that others will want to follow and replicate.

 Is knowing that you are going to encounter adversities, villains with bad attitudes and situations that will test your superhero spirit. 

Is about being resilient, courageous and optimistic.

In this keynote, I like to learn what makes your people real life superheroes.  What does that look like in real life?  How can I help recognize your superheroes?  How can I encourage them to take their superhero status to the next level?

Positively Unforgettable.

(In-Person or Virtual)

Have you ever thought about what makes you unforgettable as a person?

As a parent?

As a teacher?

As a leader?

As a son or daughter?

As a friend?

A co-worker?

As a company?

Can you think of someone that changed your life in a positively unforgettable way?  What about a service experience that was so good, you keep telling everyone about it?

What makes us unforgettable as a person, a team or culture is when we choose to live and act out our “unforgettables”.  

What are your unforgettbles?  What fills your time and space with a story that impacts others?

For example, if I spent just one day or even one hour in your workplace, what unforgettables would I want to share with the world?   Would I tell others, “This place and these people are incredible!”  Or would I say, “Thank God, I don’t work there!”

Think about it.   

The “unforgettables” we implement are what create the stories that others remember.  Are creating stories that matter and make a difference important to you?

The most memorable factor in business, work and life are the stories we create through the unforgettbles that guide us. 

In an information overload culture, the little things often times are lost or easily forgotten and the impact of those forgotten principles can negatively impact nearly every aspect of both personal and professional lives. Forgetting one time may not create a noticeable impact but when these crucial principles are constantly over looked employee retention goes down, customer satisfaction and retention plummets, and the day to day employee culture suffers. A refresher and reminder of life's positive unforgettables keeps what is important front of mind and reinvigorates an organizations culture in the most positive way.

The Principles

Positively Unforgettable principles are the guiding values and key performance indicators that achieve the most consistent results. These "unforgettables" lead our daily choices, behaviors, and attitude in the best possible direction. They are what make us unforgettable in life, work, leadership and business.

Some unforgettable principles that contribute to making life and a workplace culture unforgettable also include:

1: Trust
2: Attitude
3: Safety
4: Drive
5: Respect
6: Purpose
7: Enthusiasm
8: Creativity

To be unforgettable in life, work and business, it’s important that we clearly understand what our “unforgettables” are and practice them daily in both our personal and professional lives.
