CHANGE: Something to Endure… or something to Celebrate

Demystifying the “secrets” of what change is really all about

It has been said that the only people who truly look forward to change are…babies with wet diapers. We believe that this doesn’t have to be true! Change is ever-present, change is emerging, change is evolving, change is powerful, change IS success. What are your strategies and defaults for embracing/managing/supporting change?

  • Do you live in a “Victim” mindset or a “Courageous” mindset?
  • Do you blame, complain, and stay stuck or seek other perspectives, stand accountable, and “throw the box away”?
  • Do you think you must always be in control or can you surrender to “what is”?
  • Do you emotionally and mentally disengage from a situation or face potential discomfort head on?

There are times when we can’t change a situation…however we always have choice about the way we handle that situation. We waste so much emotional energy desperately hanging on to old beliefs, habits, and rules rather than embracing change. What would it be like if you could shift from seeing change as your adversary, to accommodate it, align with it, use it, and make it your greatest ally?!

Three influential world leaders—Bill Chalmers, Karen Shumka, and Dr. Gerry Ramogida—will share their wisdom, experience, sense of humour, and differing modalities, distinctions, and perspectives on change and how to navigate it. Expect to be invited, challenged, provoked, encouraged, and invigorated…and called to a bigger game!

    After enjoying a long and successful career as a sought-after, world class pianist, répétiteur, and music director, in 2004—having been a happy customer for six years—Karen reluctantly dipped her toes into the business side of Network Marketing. It was her first glimpse into the incredible possibilities of unlimited residual income and her fire was lit. Immersing herself in this alternate and fascinating universe, she has built a dynamic, collaborative, global team of entrepreneurs, rapidly rising to the top of the industry and becoming a leading influencer of change.
