Industry and Generational Shifts Create Uncertainty But Also Opportunity
The 4th industrial revolution is well underway and it can seem like everything is changing. For businesses it’s a perfect storm of macro industry shifts often sparked by new innovative technologies challenging the status quo, and on the ground changes that impact our workforce as our idea of what it means to work shifts as millennials enter their prime working years and baby boomers retire. This creates a lot stress and uncertainty – and opportunity. As a leader, how do you sort through all of that and continue to drive profitability, stay competitive without losing your mission focus, recruit and retain top talent, and not lose yourself along the way? Brandon’s keynote, steeped in his experience in the real estate industry, addresses these often conflicting viewpoints and points to ideas and solutions on how, as a leader, to think through change and guide your people, and yourself through all of this to a positive outcome.
How I Learned to Live My Life to the Fullest & Love My Success
Chances are there is a voice in your head that tells you you’re not as successful as you should be or could be. The voice also comments on how, if you look around, no matter how much you have, it’s not enough. That voice is a powerful motivator, a chip on the shoulder that propels people to great heights. It also squeezes all the enjoyment out of the accomplishments along the way and leaves you feeling lost and very unhappy. How then do you balance your ambition and love yourself? How do you stop “being your own worst critic?” In this keynote Brandon details his journey on how he went from a small town in Wyoming to founding and growing one of the nation’s largest real estate brokerages – living all of the ups and downs that come with that journey. He will offer some concrete practical takeaways from his soon to be released memoir on how to build a life and a career that is fulfilling.
