“Risk, Dreams and Everything In-between”

 

We have forgotten how to dream…

 

…but we can remember.

 

This is nothing to be ashamed of. As children, before the pressures of life and the rules of society impress themselves on us, we lived in a state of play. In this state we have free reign to imagine, to discover, and to dream. As we advance through our education systems and begin to take responsibility for our individual lives, we rightly develop skills that allow us to mitigate risk deal with practical concerns, and survive.  But in order to thrive…we have to dream.

 

Dreaming is a skill. Balancing our dreams with risk is another skill. In this keynote experience, Derek will share his story of dreams and risk, rejection and perseverance, and struggle and triumph. He will explain why we default to left-brain practicality and how to unleash your potential through creative play. All of this will be done, of course, with a touch of magic.

 

Dreaming becomes effective when we make peace with the fact that we can be practical and creative, logical and abstract, secure and take risks – at the same time.

 

Take another step into your gifts, talents and potential as we remember together…how to dream.

Derek is also pleased to offer the following additional corporate talk, designed for small groups and managers:
