Change is something we all have to deal with, but the stress that accompanies change is more of a choice. In this heavily researched session, Garrison applies his signature humor to a very serious topic.

 

This fun, comprehensive program offers tools and tips for getting through a big change with very little stress. More importantly, it creates an emotional shift for attendees as they see how much control they have over how change affects them. This session also shows attendees how stress is more about what we believe than it is about what is actually happening. From embracing big transitions post-quarantine to dealing with technology, growth and downsizing, this presentation helps leaders, employees and customers implement necessary changes with minimal resistance.

 

Easily customized segments can include:

 

  • How to get buy-in on change quickly
  •  Why change if things are going well?
  • Transitional awareness: How will your actions now affect you post-COVID-19?
  • Avoiding anxiety-driven decisions and actions
  •  #1 cause of stress: Knowing exactly what to do…but doing something else
  • How your belief system creates your experience
  • The technology struggle: Similarities first and differences second

Being the Best vs. Being Consistently Chosen

Success is more than being good at what you do: it’s about being consistently chosen to do it. Motivational speaker Garrison Wynn helps people understand why their products, services, or leadership styles (or those of their competitors) are selected. People don’t necessarily choose what’s best – they often choose what they are most comfortable with, whether it’s the best or not. We’ve all heard the importance of best practices and superior knowledge, so why aren’t the smartest people with the most information always in charge or number one in their field? This keynote provides original research on managing expectations and emotions and shows there really is more to success than being the best.

He is the author of the Amazon.com bestseller The REAL Truth About Success, has contributed weekly to The Washington Post, and has coauthored with Stephen Covey.

Testimonials

Smith Barney

 

“Funny, fast and entertaining. I was shocked at how much information I received from just the 30 or 45 minutes that Garrison spoke. His energy level was way up there and the stories tied it all together! After 30 years in Subway he was one of the top three I have ever seen. Thanks again for being part of our team.”

Subway

 

“Garrison is simply a rock star! His ability to deliver a well-prepared message in a funny, interesting way and engage everyone in the room is unparalleled in his industry. His research and thought-provoking educational material will resonate with our organization for many years. You know you had a successful session when days later people start a discussion with ‘As Garrison said…’”

Wells Fargo

 

“We invited Garrison to join our sales team at the end of a long second day of training. He did his homework to understand his audience and had them from the start. To win over a cynical “seen it all” group such as this and hold their attention, spark interaction and elicit genuine laughter – all while making excellent points about relationships and the value of self-perception – was amazing to watch. When the final speaker of the day said, “As Garrison told us …” I knew we’d made a great choice and a lasting impact. Post-event surveys said it was the best sales meeting we’d ever had.”

Karol Norie

Sr. Marketing Communications Manager, Spectranetics

“Garrison was everything we asked for and more. Not only did he engage and energize the crowd; he got a standing ovation and connected with them on their level. He delivered a laughter-filled keynote address with a powerful message. I loved the way he spoke to every meaningful objective and brought new material that was relevant to the event. Fantastic! Couldn’t be happier.”
