Jungle Survival Skills: Adapting to Change During Uncertain Times

In many industries, the rapid rate of change employees are facing during the global pandemic can leave people feeling as though they are lost in the wilderness. Something Yossi Ghinsberg has experienced firsthand. After a tragic separation from his friends, Yossi was lost alone for weeks in the heart of the Amazon with no food or defenses, in the midst of one of the worst rainy season for decades. Yossi translates his own lessons of survival – where every single moment left him at the mercy of the jungle, and his ability to adapt fast to the changing circumstances literally meant the difference between life and death – into effective strategies for those experiencing change in the work environment. This keynote presentation is based on the international bestseller 'Jungle', now also a documentary produced by the Discovery Channel and a feature film directed by Greg McLean and starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Sailing the Seas of Change

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives or the most intelligent, but the one most adaptable to change," Charles Darwin once wrote. A real-life example of this tenet, speaker Yossi Ghinsberg offers a keynote that delivers a journey, not just a lecture. He takes his audiences away from their everyday realities, offering them a different perspective on what change really is - and how to use it. Accepting change as a natural phenomenon is the basis of sanity; knowing how to flow with the change is the greatest of virtues. This is the most basic and relevant wisdom that can help us better manage our work and our lives. Ghinsberg explains how surrendering to the power of change doesn't mean one is helpless or powerless. Individuals and organizations will always be faced with change. His insights help everyone see change in a positive way - not as an obstacle to be overcome, but an opportunity to be grasped.

Laws of the Jungle

Jaguars Don’t Need Self-help Books: A master practitioner of corporate spirituality, Yossi Ghinsberg introduces this pioneering work of incorporating principles and guidelines from nature…the natural world…the planet as a whole and the cosmos and draws their relation to the management of our personal and professional lives. Audiences are intrigued by the unique cutting-edge human thinking that provokes and challenges the conventional, suggesting an alternative outlook on life and a new path of action toward wellbeing and success. Empowering and encouraging, Ghinsberg’s ‘Laws of the Jungle’ teaches: we are the co-creators of this life; assuming responsibility yields power; what we resist persists; and casting our vision upon the future forms a new path.

The Power to Survive

"Adversity is part of life; being a victim is a matter of choice," speaker Yossi Ghinsberg says. His amazing true story of survival is a timeless metaphor for how to face up to the challenges and uncertainties of everyday life. After being separated from his friends, Ghinsberg wandered lost and alone for three weeks in the heart of the Amazon. He somehow managed to survive without food or weapons and during what was the worst rainy season in decades, until he was miraculously saved. His message of fortitude and survival is always timely and always appropriate for any group, anywhere. He speaks to what it means to be human and shows us how we all possess the power to survive, even in the most extreme situations. His message is inspiring and hopeful, leaving his audiences uplifted and empowered.
