Overview:

Change is constantly ongoing whether we like it or not. In order to thrive in this world it is critical to be able to work with it in unison than to fight change.

Uncontrolled change has the potential to be overwhelming and typically brings with it the element of surprise. It may bring discomfort and with that, little desire to take action. With all of these negative aspects of change it isn't surprising that so many people hold on dearly to how life used to be, to how processes have always ran in the organization. There may be great wisdom behind what was done in the past and desired outcomes could have resulted from that. These are incredibly valuable lessons.

How do you solve your problems when what always used to work doesn't work so well anymore? Instead of metaphorically, or literally, banging your head on the wall, which I've done, why not maximize your team's strengths? One common reason this doesn't happen is because we embrace the comfortable lifestyle we've grown accustomed to.

Maybe that looks like not speaking up to your supervisor to make them aware of a way you can streamline your work because it would mean more responsibilities for yourself. Maybe it looks like a manager not wanting to give more responsibility to their staff because they believe they can't handle it.

Both of these examples, as well as many others, are reasons why people are hesitant to embracing change. Why would you choose discomfort over what we already know to work, even if not as efficient as we'd prefer? Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Insanity is actually defined as a legal term pertaining to a defendant's ability to determine right from wrong when a crime is committed.

I'm not suggesting that we are criminals if we don't embrace change but why would you rob yourself and your team of the greater potential that comes with embracing change? Imagine you are tasked with solving a Rubik's Cube, a daunting task in itself, however, this time you aren't allowed to make any changes to its configuration. How do you suggest solving that? What if we wore the same outfit every day for a year? Or we ate the same food every day for every meal for a month? Is that enough of a visual to realize that change is present within our lives, at least even on a small scale? I do not believe that we should go into full consumerism mode and say out with the old and in with the new. That in itself is incredibly wasteful and isn't doing any good for us. In a time when the Millennial may expect instant results and the GenXer may believe that they have all of life's answers, this sort of conversation is critical to have. Through improving our adaptability we are better prepared to take on life's challenges, whether they are as small and annoying like a fly is buzzing in your ear or if they are as colossal as moving countries. Times are changing. Can you keep up?

Why should you Attend: The idea of change is commonly discussed. We constantly wish we were slimmer, smarter, wealthier, and healthier and sometimes we're even courageous enough to voice that desire to others. We spend time talking about how 'if only things were different' and complaining that the circumstances aren't ever right.

Why are we so quick to wanting change, wishing for change, praying for change, but so slow to embracing change? Taking the first step towards any unknown direction can be scary.

It can feel as if we are walking into completely dark territories and that we have no business being there. How do you convince yourself to take that first step? How do you muster the energy to take the next step after getting pushed over, perhaps even stepped on? Maybe you're used to blazing trails and starting to hack a new path may seem counterintuitive.

No matter if you're focusing on improving your technique to see better results or starting an entirely new journey you must embrace change to see it through. Even if your goal is to maintain a certain level you will be challenged by a changing, dynamic environment. Life isn't stopping for anyone. We can look to our pasts and learn from what was done, as we should for reflection. We can visualize our futures and create the world we want to live in. In the meantime life will be happening in the present and the present is constantly changing.

Do you ever feel like what used to solve your problems no longer does? Do you, the GenXers struggle with getting me, the Millennial, to see things the way you do? Hey Millennials, do you struggle with presenting your fresh perspective to GenXers? If you feel stuck, afraid, or hesitant and you think that some change, no matter how small, may be required then this webinar may help you.

Instructor:

Louis Engel was born and raised on a small island in the Caribbean called St. Maarten. His parents thought it was in his best interest if they sent him to boarding school in Canada. He completed the majority of high school at a boarding school in Ontario and then went on to pursue an Honors Specialization in Biology which was completed in 2013. After struggling to find a job his my field, which was required for permanent residency, he decided that his chances would improve if he was to receive further schooling. Louis enrolled in an online Clinical Trials Management program in 2015 and completed an internship in the field in 2016.

The internship lead to a part-time opportunity with the same company which quickly turned into a full-time opportunity. Louis began his internship in the Clinical Operations department and learned that, plain and simple, it was not for him. He decided to knock on some doors and search for other opportunities within the same company. This landed him in the Sales & Marketing department. Louis began travelling around North America to attend conferences as a representative for the company. One Wednesday night in October 2016 he received news that he was no longer legally allowed to work in Canada anymore. Louis finished his regular day at the office and then hurried over to his second job as a bar tender. Once that shift came to an end he decided to catch up on his emails in preparation for the rest of the week. One of those emails read that his application to remain in Canada had been denied. Louis had to quit both jobs immediately to not risk being deported.

He left Canada in December 2016. He didn’t know what to do. Louis still had his whole life set up there. At that point, Ontario was home for 10 years and it wasn’t time for it to be part of his past. While he was in St. Maarten he completed one last application, one last opportunity to make sure that his time in Canada wasn’t wasted. It worked. Louis made it back but under strict conditions. This permit was good for one year. Enough time for him to meet the remaining requirements necessary for permanent residency.

Louis submitted his application for permanent residency in March 2018 and returned, once again, to St. Maarten for an indefinite amount of time while he waited. After five months of patience he was rewarded with permanent residency. Canada saw his return in August 2018, but not the pharmaceutical industry. He returned to working as a server and bar tender to earn an income after being unemployed for 5 months and battling with lawyer fees. While he worked that job he also prepared his next move. Louis wasn’t sure what it was going to be but he knew that he was not going to get stuck in the food service industry.

His experiences have lead him to develop a passion for overcoming challenge, embracing change, and exploring curiosity. Louis followed his passion then and it continues to lead him today. He allows his curiosity to help him find a way to overcome challenges. Overcoming challenge often requires change. Change can be a result of a new environment or from a new way of thinking. His struggles have built him to become resilient. Louis looks forward to difficult experiences, it is when the greatest lessons are learned.

With his passion came a burning desire to share what he has with as many people as he can, his perspective as a Millenial. This thought lead to him quitting his job as a bar tender and pursuing a career as a speaker. He focuses on sparking curiosity in the individual. Louis’ goal is to inspire personal development and he does so by carrying an inspirational message through storytelling
