Keynote Topics

MARV: Majorly Afraid of Revealing Vulnerability®.

If you’re human, you’re already well acquainted with MARV. He’s the voice of fear in all of us. We know from experience that Marv works too hard. He’s terrified of failure, shame and vulnerability. As our internal-critic, Marv’s job is to protect us from those “awful things”. (And he takes his job seriously!)

When Marv offers us his negative judgment, he’s only trying to help. But in doing so he stymies our growth and creativity. Taming him will lead your organization to greater competitiveness, adaptability to rapid change, and to greater productivity overall.

It’s axiomatic; if you can’t self-reflect, you can’t know yourself. If you can’t know yourself you can’t lead your own growth. If you can’t lead your own growth you can’t lead others. Learn to take control of your career and your life, so both you and your teams can perform better and lead more fulfilling lives.

You may have read the studies, they’re everywhere; the ones that say that employee disengagement is at an all-time high —around 70% internationally. That means that 70% percent of your people are just phoning it in. Those same studies point out a figure that’s even more disturbing; 20% of that 70% are actually working against the goals of your company, they are conspiring against precisely what you are working towards.

Peter Himmelman – Leadership feels strongly that disengagement at that level comes about when people sense the company they are working for does not have strong values. They become dissatisfied when they think the only mission statement is to shore up the bottom line. While keeping numbers up should be a priority, if that’s all your company stands for in the minds of your employees, it’s going to be nigh on impossible to keep them around for long. As human beings, we are motivated far more by a sense of purpose than we are by simply filling our personal coffers.

Experimentation is a necessary part of your path to success. Learn to treat it as a positive experience so that it becomes a catalyst, rather than an inhibitor to personal and professional growth.

Without the ability to try new things, employees become bored, and their boredom invariably leads to frustration. That frustration leads them to either, look for another job, or stick around to become a member of the aforementioned, 70% disengagement club, (or worse, the 20% company saboteur club)!
