The Artistry of Change
The Top 3 Habits of Highly Resilient People
“Everyone is born an artist. The trick is to re-capture that innate ability as an adult and put it into all aspects of life.” – Pablo Piccaso
What happens on your team when challenge hits? Do some people get reactive and waste time focusing on the problem instead of working on the solution? If so, then this presentation is for you.
The #1 skill you need to be indispensable at work now is—the ability to unlearn and relearn again. As the world changes at faster rates, people desperately need practical tools to shift their mindset (and inspire others to do the same) to be appropriate to the situation.
After 11 years of research we have identified the top 3 mindset practices of people who tend to stay innovative, solutions-oriented, adaptive, centered, healthy, communicative and proactive in the face of constant change.
We call these people “Change Artists”. The skills of a Change Artist don’t actually need to be learned. They are innate skills that you just need to remember to access. These practices require hardly any extra time during your day, and simply train your brain to stay in as high a performance state as possible, no matter what is going on around you.
During this engaging and practical program your group will discover how to:
- understand different personality styles when it comes to handling change
- shift a reactive mindset to a problem solving mindset.

The Artistry of Change® is a powerful framework that blends diverse fields such as educational kinesiology, western and eastern psychology, change management theory, creative process models, and neuroscience. Witness how these fields are merging in exciting ways to produce the new ‘organizational artistry’.
