Leading Transformation: Inspiration, performance and impact through values in action

Character Strengths have the power to transform. A strengths based approach can help influencers draw out what they, and others do well for better decisions, goal setting and productivity. In this session leaders will develop a better understanding of their own personal strengths, how to spot strengths in others, and identify new ways to use signature strengths. Participants will come away with evidenced based leadership tools that draw out individual and team potential, improve productivity, strengthen relationships, and shape change for the better.

Rising to the Challenge: How to perform better under pressure

Everyone has moments where the “have to get it right”. Tough negotiations, important client meetings, running a business and challenging economic times bring very real consequences to the forefront. In these situations some people thrive, some falter and some flat out crack. The only difference between success and failure is how we respond to the stress of the moment. In this research based session, Marco helps participants understand how pressure and perfectionism negatively impact our wellbeing and performance, change their mind about stress, avoid turning high importance situations into high pressure situations, target the zone of high standards, and harness character strengths to overcome pressure and be at your best.

Inside Your Mind: Skills and strategies for better decisions

“I know better, why did I still do that?” If we know better why do we keep doing what we do, especially when there are better options? Inside Your Mind shows you how the mind works, what drives decision making and how to maximize strategies for better choices everyday.

Mastering Willpower: How to change habits for better life and health success

Lack of willpower is said to be the biggest barrier to making better personal choices. But is willpower really the issue? Scientists have made interesting discoveries on how willpower, change, and habits work. In this informative and engaging presentation you will learn about the facts about habits, willpower and self-control; why focusing on willpower may actually be doing more harm than good; why good health is VITAL for resisting temptations and creating success; and a simple plan to build new habits and overcome a “lack of willpower”.

The Success Equation: How to create a fulfilling life

Creating success takes more than just having a positive attitude. There is a simple but effective formula that can make it achievable, and even under the most challenging circumstances. In fact, that’s when it works best. Through the Success Equation, Marco shows you how harness three fundamental principles to make thriving a lifetime habit. Participants will learn how to design and pursue meaningful short and long term goals, foster an attitude of personal accountability, resiliency and personal empowerment. Everyone has the ability to realize their potential. Learn how.

Happy Participants!

It was enlightening to learn about the topic “willpower” and especially through the way Marco delivers it. Marco has a sense of humour that makes people participate.

I have attended Marco's presentations a few times now. There are speakers you want to see only once and there are speakers you want to see and listen to over and over again for very apparent reasons; 1) great topic, 2) relevant, 3) timely, 4) direct to the core, 5) very informative and last but certainly the most important, ENGAGING. These are the attributes I found in Marco from the first day I heard him speak. This is why I kept attending his presentations. From the time he starts, you do not want to blink and not to miss anything of what he will say. As past president, of a professional association in Calgary, I was responsible for choosing a speaker to present at our professional development workshop (PDW) with the six attributes that make you want to come back. Marco never failed. Not only did he present topics that are relevant, he also worked closely with me and the executive board members, to come up with the best title and tagline for our PDW. Something not many speakers will do. Now that I've moved to the National Vice President and Members-At-Large Liaison position, I will certainly recommend Marco to speak at our future conferences in the national level. I can't thank Marco enough for what he has given and shared to our members in Calgary. Marco became the talk of Admins even long after they heard him speak. Now it's time for me to endorse Marco nationally. I can't wait for the next opportunity to hear Marco speak.
