Kim van Kets 60 minute talks encourages delegates to rediscover the passion that enables them to recharge their batteries and prevent burn out and loss of creativity. It provides an extremely entertaining, anecdotal and most of all positive perspective of South Africa and draws comparisons between the challenges faced on my self-powered 6 772km journey around the border of South Africa and those encountered in the business world as well as in one’s personal life. The presentation is very visual with a number of slides and a short video clip. Some of the points that are covered are:
Focusing on the positive
Translating the dream into a goal
Developing discipline and routine in the good times
The power of reward
Learning to give and receive help
Not being immobilized by the enormity of the goal
The value of being target driven
Finding creative alternatives when resources we rely upon disappear
Preventative maintenance – taking care of the important things before they present a crisis
The value of collaboration
