 Change is the great equalizer. Organizations that view change as an opportunity and aggressively seek to find and capitalize on it, win. Those that don`t fall behind and are doomed to forever play catch-up. In The Ring in the Rubble, change and leadership authority Gary Bradt shows that change always creates hidden opportunities; a leader`s job is unearthing them. He reveals the secrets to moving beyond the rubble of disruption, fear, and uncertainty that change often creates to finding the golden ring of opportunity that always lies beneath.

Each chapter of this breakthrough book delivers a powerful principle for leading change, supported by engaging real-life experiences of the author and other well-known business executives that illustrate how to put the principles into action. Bradt also asks penetrating questions to help you "dig deeper" and pinpoint the best ways for applying the lessons to your specific change situation. Inspirational stories combined with Bradt`s tools for self-examination make The Ring in the Rubble a uniquely practical, motivational guide to winning against all odds. Change itself doesn`t dictate the eventual outcome of your situation; how you think about and handle change is what makes all the difference. You`ll never find the ring if you don`t start digging!

The Ring in the Rubble: Dig Through Change and Find Your Next Golden Opportunity
Change today is constant and rapid. Organizations that don`t learn how to adapt to change quickly will fall behind their competitors that do. The call from Gary`s speaking clients is often the same: Help our people learn to embrace change; help them see the opportunity in change and how it can work to their advantage. This keynote is designed to do just that.

The Ring in the Rubble provides audiences an inspirational, practical and memorable way to lead through change: The ring represents the golden opportunities change always creates. The rubble represents the disruption, fear and uncertainty that change often stirs up. The premise? There is always a ring in the rubble. A leader`s job is to find it. Dr. Bradt`s job is to show them how.

In this engaging and inspirational keynote, Dr. Bradt outlines ten tools for finding the ring; tools that lead to practical action focused on solving a specific challenge related to change. Dr. Bradt ties each of his tools and principles to your organization`s specific change situation. His background as a business owner, speaker, author and psychologist provides a unique perspective that leads to engaging stories and examples that will stir listeners to action. Whether its reacting to change or making change happen, this keynote will inspire your audience to take practical steps that will lead to better organizations professionally, and happier lives personally, whenever change is the issue.

How to Stay Sane While You Are Going Like Crazy
In this interactive keynote on leadership, life balance and time management, Dr. Bradt moves beyond the usual bromides offered up for leaders looking to achieve better results through time management and life balance techniques. Dr. Bradt offers rare insight on how these goals can be achieved by not trying to manage time at all. Instead, he encourages leaders to adhere to Dr. Bradt`s unique and guiding principle: Don`t Manage Time - Invest it in People. Through entertaining and illuminating stories drawn from his years as a leadership consultant working with top senior executives, Dr. Bradt shares leadership principles and practices that lead to results. Leaders learn to identify and invest in their best people before change takes place; to not waste precious energy trying to convince resisters while ignoring the willing who are waiting to be led; and victim or victor - it`s your choice - the first requirement for leading others is leading yourself.
