Navigating Transition Fog–The Road from

"Now What?" to "Why Not?!" 

We’re living through one of the biggest "Now What?" moments in history—a pandemic and the unprecedented ripples and changes that have resulted. We have experienced negative impacts and silver linings simultaneously. The rate of change in our professional and personal lives has us in a fog and questioning what to make of it all and how to remain steadfast and resilient. 


Based on her TEDx talk, in this signature keynote, Brenda introduces her transformative concept of Transition Fog. Transition Fog is the result of change showing up in your workplace or life space. It triggers feelings of fear, anxiety, and worry and you can’t see a clear path forward. The question we face is "Now What?"


Using the metaphor of driving in the fog, Brenda shares highly practical, immediately applicable, and powerful strategies for cutting through the complexity! Audience members create a Resilience Roadmap for navigating a professional or personal transition in real-time to ensure clarity and confidence in moving forward. This keynote inspires audiences to unleash their "Why Not?!"

This keynote is ideal for individuals, leaders, and teams who are:

  • ​Feeling overwhelmed with the simultaneous changes coming their way that are draining them mentally and emotionally.​

  • Having to adapt personally to change while also leading others through it

  • Experiencing the fogginess and lack of clarity that comes with change

  • Dealing with their own or their teams’ high emotions during change

  • Unsure of how to navigate complex times.

The audience will leave with:

     An understanding of the emotional transition journey that accompanies any change.

     Practical strategies and tools for navigating change and transition (personally or professionally).

     A personalized Resilience Roadmap for navigating whatever change they may be facing.

     Much needed clarity in the face of uncertainty.

     The inspiration to convert any "Now What?" into a "Why Not?!"

How do we stay strong during a disorienting life or work event? It could be a change you elected or one that was imposed on you. Life is nothing but one uncertain experience after another. And life’s disorienting events can rock our professional and personal lives!  But ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.

 

Leveraging Brenda’s 5 FROGS® framework and rich experiences, this impactful keynote inspires the audience to explore the unshakeable strength that lives within themselves and their teams. FROGS is an acronym for the spaces we move between when big change or a work/life disorienting event hits. Learn about the transformation journey that begins with everything seeming to fall apart to becoming a new stronger, more resilient, and unstoppable version of yourself, team or organization!
