Bringing Amazon Survival Skills to Business
Yossi’s ‘Amazon Survival Skills for Business’ is a mesmerizing storytelling session that will keep audiences riveted to the edge of their seats. However, this total absorption facilitates also a deep learning experience. Yossi’s counter-intuitive insights will expand horizons, open new dimensions and facilitates new possibilities.
What can be learned from a man who survived against all the odds in the Amazon Jungle?
Yossi Ghinsberg is a master storyteller with an epic story to share. Lost alone in the midst of the Amazon rainforest for three weeks, he not only survived, he found new meaning for his life and work. The author of the international bestseller ‘Jungle’ , now a major motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe, Yossi was recently rated as one of the top ten speakers in the business.
His survival skills for business are designed to shift your attendees’ perspective and inspire them to always assume responsibility, taking their game to the next level. His energy is contagious – his insights mind-bending and counter-intuitive.
Survival is not a negative. Survival is a desired state for the workplace, driving everyone to their peak performance.
Survival should be part of the work culture since survival is an intense competition where everybody wins, and no one loses.
Survival equals peak performance – peak performance of all faculties – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – all are at the top of their game and consolidated on one single purpose.
Survival is extremely efficient. The ‘secret sauce’ of survival is the realization that competition is a waste of energy and inefficient, hence a poor survival strategy. A better, more efficient strategy is investing the energy in innovation, creating a Niche Monopoly™.
Niche Monopoly™ is nature’s secret weapon in generating greater yields with less effort. In niche monopolies you have no competition; no energy is wasted. The free energy can be invested in rewarding the team, giving back to society and investing in further innovation to maintain the edge of the Niche Monopoly™.
Jungle Survival Skills
Adapting to Change During Uncertain Times
In many industries, the rapid rate of change employees are facing during the global pandemic can leave people feeling as though they are lost in the wilderness. Something Yossi Ghinsberg has experienced firsthand. After a tragic separation from his friends, Yossi was lost alone for weeks in the heart of the Amazon with no food or defenses, in the midst of one of the worst rainy season for decades. Yossi translates his own lessons of survival – where every single moment left him at the mercy of the jungle, and his ability to adapt fast to the changing circumstances literally meant the difference between life and death – into effective strategies for those experiencing change in the work environment. This keynote presentation is based on the international bestseller 'Jungle', now also a documentary produced by the Discovery Channel and a feature film directed by Greg McLean and starring Daniel Radcliffe. From this unique presentation audiences will…
· Feel empowered to adapt to their circumstances. They learn that we are co-creators of our own realities, in life and in business
· Explore how adversity is part of life; being a victim is a matter of choice and following our business survival instincts will often lead to success
· Learn how facing our fears and looking for innovative ways to embrace change, can lead us towards our desired outcomes
