The Mortal Moment: Harnessing the Transformative Power of Crisis!
Valuing Your Impact As An Educator : Key Change Agent in America's Developing History

Our mortality is real, it is poignant and the reality of our mortality has a sobering impact upon most people. The power of the moment can either paralyze or energize, it can immobilize or catalyze. We will all face the Mortal Moment at some point in our trek through life. There is a mortal moment that has the smack of finality, or eternality depending upon you outlook. Yet, there are other mortal moments that are less ominous, but no less daunting, challenging or impactful.

The Mortal Moments of job loss, business failure, relationship loss, catastrophic illness, loss of loved ones are all devastating. Yet these Mortal Moments are also potentially transformative and have the power in them to bring the best out of those who acquire the tools and learn to embrace the reality of their mortality with courage. Charles Edwin Markham famously said, "For all your days prepare and meet them ever alike, when you are the anvil bear, when you are the hammer strike."

Participants will discover:

  • Three strategies for 1.) facing down fear, 2.) maintaining focus in a time of panic and 3.) stop worrying and start planning in the Mortal Moment.

  • How to center your thoughts and actions on the "most important" and not become mired in inaction.

  • How the crisis of the Mortal Moment can catalyze creativity and energy you previously lacked.

  • How to lead people on your team and in your organization through a collective Mortal Moment.

Format: 45 to 60 minute keynote, 3 hour or full day workshop and or a webinar

  • Change Agents such as managers, talent development specialists etc...

  • Business Owners, their leadership teams

  • Non-profit and Community organization leadership

Educating America's youth is a monumental and daunting task fraught with many obstacles and challenges. Educators are the first to come under fire when students and schools perform below expectations. The essential work of the educator is too often undervalued and over-evaluated. The combination of which can lead to massive losses to the teaching profession due to compassion fatigue (burn-out), morale crises within staff and the decline of educational aspirants to teach the next generation of the students.

In the face of the mounting teacher shortages across the U.S. those in the profession must affirm and reaffirm one another as critical change agents in America's developing history.  Educators at every level must understand the paradigms that shape the needs of our economy and our culture as globalization of resources and localization of interests become driving factors in America's developing history.

Participants will:

  • Be creatively challenged to explore their own professional philosophy of education and how it matches the practice of educating youth.

  • Explore the meaning and the power of paradigms and how they shape the cultural frameworks out of which we work and live.

  • Be engaged in an interactive discussion of paradigms as they perceive them and those that are emerging.

  • Examine the practices that substitute for real education

  • Be challenged to examine their role in the practice of teaching as real thought shapers and capacity builders.


Format:  3 hour or full day workshop


Who will gain the most benefit from this Program:

  • New or aspiring educators

  • Veteran educators

  • Education administrators

  • Post-Secondary Education Faculty

  • Parent Student Teacher Associations

  • Home-school and charter school educators
