About the Keynote:
Did you know that BOTH the why of what you do AND the now of what you do matter to achieve meaningful success? What would it look like for you to be more focused, motivated, and committed at home, work, and in your community? Justin is ready to inspire you toward that reachable reality, and to keep you effectively engaged at the same time!
In this inspiring and personal keynote, Justin will challenge you to identify or reconnect with your why (purpose) and to live it out now (passion) in order to achieve meaningful success. Too much focus on the “why” can lead to being stymied by indecision leading to little or no action. Too much focus on the “now” can lead to increasing impulsivity and bad decisions. Learn how a clarifying blend of both the “why” and the “now” can help you to become a more engaged employee, impactful leader, and ultimately a thoughtful global citizen. As a result of attending this program, you will:
- Learn the research about how developing clarified values and principles enable you to more effectively lead yourself and then to passionately lead others.
- Understand your position in the Why Now Quadrant and how to grow in pursuing what matters in your personal and professional life.
- Grow in your ability to courageously combat the distracters of your “why” and “now”, and learn how to have intentional accountability to increase your goal achievement.
- Commit to suggested small opportunities to take initiative and ownership of your journey to be a better professional, leader, and world-citizen.
- Understand the significance of your now moment to consistently learn, develop meaningful relationships and impact positive change all around you.
This Keynote is funny, thought provoking, practical, and inspiring and is full of relevant tools to help you achieve more of what really matters to you!
