The Ring in the Rubble: Find the Golden Opportunity Within Every Change (Change and Leadership)
Change today is constant and rapid. Organizations that don’t learn how to adapt to change quickly will fall behind their competitors that do. The call from Gary’s speaking clients is often the same: Help our people learn to embrace change; help them see the opportunity in change and how it can work to their advantage. This keynote is designed to do just that.

The Ring in the Rubble provides audiences an inspirational, practical and memorable way to lead through change: The ring represents the golden opportunities change always creates. The rubble represents the disruption, fear and uncertainty that change often stirs up. The premise? There is always a ring in the rubble. A leader’s job is to find it. Dr. Bradt’s job is to show them how. In this engaging and inspirational keynote, Dr. Bradt outlines ten tools for finding the ring; tools that lead to practical action focused on solving a specific challenge related to change. Dr. Bradt ties each of his tools and principles to your organization’s specific change situation. His background as a business owner, speaker, author and psychologist provides a unique perspective that leads to engaging stories and examples that will stir listeners to action. Whether its reacting to change or making change happen, this keynote will inspire your audience to take practical steps that will lead to better organizations professionally, and happier lives personally, whenever change is the issue.

How to Stay Sane While You Are Going Like Crazy (Life Balance/Time Management)
In this interactive keynote on time management and life balance, Dr. Bradt moves beyond the usual bromides offered up for those looking to achieve better time management and life balance. Dr. Bradt offers unique insights on how these goals can be achieved by not trying to manage time at all. Instead, he encourages leaders to Invest Time in People, with a Purpose, to achieve their greatest results. Through entertaining and illuminating stories drawn from his years as a leadership consultant working with top senior executives, Dr. Bradt shares best practices that achieve the best results in this arena. Audiences leave with a better understanding of how they can be more effective in all their relationships, at work and at home, and how success is a choice, not an accident.

Winning Against All Odds (Leadership)

Winning against all odds requires that leaders and organizations practice fundamental principles tied to success. In his entertaining, dynamic and moving presentation, Dr. Bradt demonstrates how you can apply these principles for incredible results at work and at home. You will hear inspiring stories of how others have found tremendous opportunity in the face of disaster; learned to let go of the past to create a remarkable future; and overcome fear to reach for their dreams.

The Five Choices of Change (Change)

This presentation weaves inspirational stories with practical tips on how organizations and individuals can learn to use change to their advantage, thereby getting an edge up on the competition.
