  1. Learn how to identify, understand, and accept unique strengths (and how they relate to weaknesses) in order to decide what to focus on, and what to delegate, team up on, or outsource
  2. Understand how to use principles from “design thinking” to deliberately design lives, careers, and teams maximizing native strengths in order to achieve breakthrough performance.
  3. By designing around individual weaknesses, create higher engagement and greater collaboration with your teams, and colleagues by leveraging the diverse strengths of the team.

Neuroscientists have made dramatic progress in understanding memory creation. Recent advances show us that our ability to stand out, to be remembered, to be recalled, to win the sale is directly correlated to the kinds of memories generated within the brains of your partners, clients, or customers. What if you could design the kinds of interactions, experiences, and memories that would lead to being the last recall or “first call?”

Testimonials

If you seek an engaging and thought provoking presentation on innovation, ideation, and design thinking, I strongly recommend John. I met John when he presented a half-day seminar to a group of very successful CEOs. He was great! All the CEOs got new perspective and insights to help lead their business and their people.

Jim Heller

Owner, Heller Consulting, Inc.

John Coyle exceeded all expectations at the 2016 ACETECH Whistler Summit. His powerful message about slowing the acceleration of time by designing a life with more meaning and memories really resonated with this exclusive audience of 120 technology CEOs. He challenged them to think differently about their lives from a perspective they could all relate to.

John was an absolute delight to work with and I would highly recommend him as a speaker.

Kathy Troupe

Executive Director, ACETECH

Wow! When you book John Coyle as a speaker you get so much more than just a “motivation speech”. I had the pleasure of listening to John at a recent insurance broker meeting and was impressed with his ability to weave emotional storytelling in with practical advice that was applicable to everyone in the audience (even the spouses that attended). He takes the audience along on his life journey, sharing the good, bad and the ugly. His willingness to be transparent and REAL makes him easy to relate to (even if he is an Olympic athlete). I highly recommend John if you are looking for a top-notch speaker at your next event.
