- Unstoppable Resilience: Developing the Mindset of a Champion
Why doesn’t the fastest runner always win the race? Or why doesn’t the smartest person
always get the best job? Because it’s not always the ones who “start out the smartest who
end up smartest.” (Dweck) It takes more than natural speed, intelligence or ability to be a
champion. It takes resilience. But resilience is not just for the elite with an Olympic gold
around their neck. Resilience can be learned.

of a champion. Mark’s best practices will help you cultivate determination, increase resilience
and conquer adversity.

- Getting to Target Zero: Engaging in High-Performance Safety
Hazards and obstacles abound in the fast and frenzied pace of business today. In the rush to stay competitive, people are increasingly tempted to take short cuts and sacrifice safety.

change, accidents can happen.
During Mark’s high-performance presentation, you will learn how to:
-get change-right and change-ready
-defy change paralysis through Mark’s mobilized for safety approach
-significantly reduce risk of accidents and liability

Empower your employees to achieve “target zero.”
