“Be ready not to be ready,” advises professional speaker Jeff Vankooten as explains what he’s calling the, “Resilient Rules of Engagement.” In this Speaker’s Showcase, he explains to Mulligan Speakers’ Diane Mulligan that as business people, we like to be in control with, “mission statements and plans that are tight.”
However, he points out that because business is changing so rapidly—what he calls, “an historic exclamation mark,” we have to start, “embracing uncertainty… letting go of what is going away…in order to move ahead in fresh new ways.
Vankooten, who is represented by Mulligan Speakers International as a keynote and motivational speaker at meetings nationwide, says he has three areas of focus to help people, especially business people be resilient as changes happen. They are:
“They need to reshape new perceptions” and give challenges a fresh new look
“Invite new resources into their lives”
“Embrace new directions”
Vankooten says, “This is the time for bold actions” and therefore successful business people need to have the boldness to move ahead.
