A clinical psychologist and C-Suite executive coach, Bradt knows how to engage the heads and the hearts of his audiences for maximum effectiveness using masterful storytelling, humor, simple exercises and solid content. Navigating change successfully means being willing to change yourself first, he explains. He shows how learning to adapt leads to new levels of performance and personal and professional success.

How to Lead and Influence The Opposite Sex at Work
Leading the opposite sex can be a challenge. Men and women tend to think differently, communicate differently, and have different interests and priorities. While these differences might add spice to life in general, they can cause confusion for the leader working with those who size up the world so differently from them. This entertaining, provocative and down-to-earth keynote gives leaders the practical tools and knowledge they need to more effectively lead and influence the opposite sex at work.
Dr. Bradt uses his 26+ years as a psychologist and executive coach to good advantage as he tackles the issues he’s seen head on. He covers the five “C’s” of leadership: Confidence, Competence, Compassion, Competition and Community, and how men and women differ on each. He sensitively tackles the omnipresent but seldom talked about issue of potential sexual attraction, and how this powerful force can be a pro or con depending on how it’s handled. He shares in plain and simple language why men and women do what they do, and brings his points to life with fun and illuminating stories and examples. Finally, he challenges both genders to stretch their comfort zones in learning to better lead each other.
Men and women bring unique talents, skills and motivations to the work place. Effectively harnessing and combining their collective attributes is a key to organizational success. Participants will leave this interactive keynote entertained, informed, and better equipped to take advantage of the rich variety and impact that men and women offer the organizations they serve.
Turning Change into Opportunity
Going through change is not a market differentiator. Adapting to change faster and better than your competitors can be. Gary Bradt’s inspiring new keynote, Turning Change into Opportunity, equips audiences with the tools they need to do just that.
Based on his new book, Change: The Tools You Need for The Life You Want at Work and Home, this keynote empowers audiences to:
• Experience the power of The To Who List, a daily practice supported by an app Bradt developed that helps you build relationships that will sustain you through challenging change and difficult times
• Learn to let go of old beliefs, feelings or behaviors that are only holding you down or holding you back
• Experience the moving power of the Two Minute Drill, an exercise that allows you to quickly engage your most deeply held values. Like a compass, these values will point you in the right direction whenever change creates difficult choices
• Understand the four factors driving change for practically every organization and industry across the globe
• And more….
This upbeat and interactive keynote stimulates the mind and stirs the emotions. It inspires audiences to discover strengths they may not have recognized they had. Bradt’s stories and personal anecdotes bring his points home in a way that audiences can not only understand but relate to.
Discover what previous clients like IBM, eBay, American Express, Aetna and scores of others have before: That it’s not the change in life, but how you choose to respond, that makes all the difference. Let Gary help your audience find the opportunities that await them.
THE SCIENCE & HEART OF FINDING OPPORTUNITY IN DISRUPTIVE TIMES
5 Strategies for Positive Change
The global pandemic has created a period of change that is by all accounts disruptive, unrelenting, and at times completely debilitating. Leaders, teams and individual contributors alike are in uncharted waters and the one integral, unifying thread is our humanity. We are in a place where we need to look at how this change is affecting us as individuals first, and then translate that change into our respective roles. While we cannot always choose what change will come in our path, with the right mindset and strategies, we can choose how to move forward. This is Dr. Gary Bradt’s goal, as he shares the Five Fundamental Choices that change presents us with, and that how you choose to go forward will make a bigger impact on your life than the change itself.
Dr. Bradt’s insights are informed by neuroscience and psychology, as well as his three decades of experience as a C-suite executive coach that provide relatable, real-world narratives, and relevant actionable strategies to give you a new path forward.
ADOPT an opportunity mindset and start moving fast toward positive goals and outcomes.
LET GO of what is holding you back, and recognize what is possible.
NURTURE relationships and build a foundation of strength, trust, and mutual support.
PRACTICE courageous optimism and share ideas openly to find new solutions.
GROW where you’re planted and move forward with positive determination and confidence.
We heard so many positive comments about your talk and have also heard several references to 'clearing the rubble and finding the ring' as people jumped back into their day-to-day work!
Very special Thanks for your speech . . . As always, you bring such great insights on managing and leading through change. The team seemed renewed and encouraged about the future. Your guidance was a winning approach for us.
You were just fabulous during the offsite--everyone enjoyed your talk and I think it got people really motivated. We received a lot of great feedback.
It was my desire that at the end of this meeting our team members would look at change differently and come to accept its presence . . . Your open, transparent, relational presentation reduced the resistance to change of our team.
