If you are not thinking about disruption, complexity and continual innovation in your industry, then we’ve got news for you: You are ignoring a perilous gaping void, and if you don’t fill it, someone else will.

Technology and culture are in a state of continual flux, and today’s business demands an environment where innovation is not only welcomed, but required. So how can you keep up and instill a disciplined approach to innovation?

Erik Wahl, bestselling author, artist and one of the nation’s most in-demand keynote speakers. His new book and presentation, THE SPARK AND THE GRIND: IGNITE THE POWER OF DISCIPLINED CREATIVITY presents the yin and the yang of the creative process: How to create and maintain the flow of ideas, and how to execute them. The world is filled with dreamers and doers—but the only way things happen are when dreamers muster the mental tenacity and hard work, and when doers harness their innate creativity and flexibility.

Erik’s dynamic presentation explores the process of creativity and creation. Audiences are inspired to laughter, tears and always leave with a desire to unearth more meaning in their work and their lives, and the tools to find it.

In THE SPARK AND THE GRIND keynote, Erik:

· Deconstructs the process and discipline necessary to realize the visions of master creators such as Isaac Newton, Thomas Edison and Martin Luther King, Jr.

· Delves into the science of innovation, and how to tap it for your own purposes

· Drives home the importance of creative culture, regardless of industry, and how to harness it for individual and collective success.

The ArtWork Revolution was created to help you view the world from an entirely new perspective. It will not only change the way you look at your job, but also how you view life itself, allowing you to be the artist you were created to be. After narrowing down all artistic talents into nine specific artistic archetypes, this evaluation will show you what skills you have been gifted with, and offer you the developmental tools to turn your ‘work’ into ‘ArtWork’.

WHAT HIDDEN ARTISTIC TALENTS DO YOU NEED TO REDISCOVER?

• Are you an ingenious Inventor, but work only allows you to create one new product a year?

• Perhaps you are a visionary Conductor, yet work forces you to micro-manage boring details?

• Could you be a passionate Painter, even though work continually reminds you it’s too risky to paint outside the lines?

Today’s leaders face a pressure to innovate—or else perish—unlike any other time in history. Advances in social, mobil and cloud technology, coupled with fierce global competition has made the business landscape nearly unrecognizable from what it was a mere 10 years ago.

Erik Wahl’s entertaining and invigorating Art of Leadership presentation paints a compelling new portrait for what the successful leaders of tomorrow will look like. He inspires audiences to shed old ways of thinking and “business as usual” processes that are outdated, inefficient and detrimental to productivity. Audience members learn new ways to build an emotional connection to drive future employee engagement. Erik’s presentation stretches traditional assumptions on leadership. The end results include:

– innovative solutions to further your organization
– attracting and engaging quality employees
– new efficiencies and the end of detrimental redundancies

Growth and comfort cannot co-exist. When leaders come from a place of authenticity, curiosity, exploration and purpose, this leads to more meaningful connections among team members and with clients and customers—and ultimately, a more profitable organization. An engaged employee equals an engaged customer.
