Speech Topics

To Help Individuals & Organizations Excel, Rediscover Stability

As a topic, stability has been somewhat lost in the mix of conversations surrounding both innovation & digital transformation. This talk — based upon Dr. Gottschalk’s Harvard Business Review article — leads attendees on a journey that revisits the merits of “core stability” and how it is vital to help both people & organizations excel.

This talk helps attendees understand how they may have overlooked key foundations of work life & organizational structure — and how to begin to harness their power. Linking the findings of past & present research, she makes the case that nothing can excel without the support of a strong underlying foundation.

After spending years as an advisor, Dr. Gottschalk realized that adopting a “lens of stability” was often necessary to pinpoint weaknesses and make progress. With this lens, elements as varied as psychological safety & resource allocation can take on new meaning – crystalizing what may need to be tackled to help people & organizations excel.
