Described as a “chiropractor for the soul,” Craig does more than just tailor his programs… he rolls up his sleeves and works in the audience, where unexpected magic brings real change.
He unravels us from our habitual ways of being and from the social conditioning that keeps us stuck; and he does it with humor and heart.
Craig offers a compassionate perspective to groups dealing with intense adversity, from post-combat soldiers to 911 victims to domestic violence and victim advocates. (First outside speaker to address Columbine HS students and staff after the tragedy).
As a single dad raising a young son, Craig climbed mountains with his son on his back, joined knitting circles with the playpen at his feet, and improvised bedtime stories and songs that still show up nearly 20 years later. Craig sees kiddos as his best teachers.
- Cut Through Resistance: Secrets to Change without the Drama
Things change constantly. Most of us spend an inordinate amount of time resisting change. What goes into our resistance? Negativity, judgments, fear, and, yes -DRAMA!
As time passes, we habituate to a kind of resignation; we can be overcome by ‘defeat’ and ‘purposelessness’ all from our own resistance to change.
What if instead of resisting change, we could embrace it without the drama, instead seeing change through eyes of adventure, and who knows… even fun?�Cut Through Resistance�helps us turn the counterproductive energy of our resistance into positivity.
- BE ALL IN: Getting To 100%
We hear it all the time… Organization xyz could use:
� More energy
� Higher creativity
� More direct communication
� A spirit of collaboration
The world-class businesses and organizations that are thriving develop a culture where their people have a sense of ownership, some ‘skin in the game’, accountability, and engagement. A culture where people know WHY they do what they do.
Once we experience “being all in”, going back to mediocrity just doesn’t satisfy. You don’t need a study to show you that when you are honestly out of your own way – not sabotaging your own efforts, not hiding from your potency, not making excuses and lies about your ability – that you, just as you are, are capable of 100%.
BE ALL IN… Getting to 100% is filled with humor and big engagement! Craig delivers with relevance and a keen sense of irony to help unlock the truth of Being All In!
- Greater than You and Me: Synergy in Action
Working with others shouldn’t feel like pulling a sled through waist-high mud. If a group really works together, it becomes totally doable!
It’s in the connections that the magic happens; just like setting those last jigsaw pieces in place and seeing all the pieces together.
Synergy in Action teaches us how to collaborate and be productive, while being energized, creative, and deeply satisfied! It allows our natural individual strengths to compliment the group. It’s about tying one’s individual purpose into something greater than themselves.
- The Intelligence of Fun
People have different ideas about what fun is. Yet, all organizations know that feeling part of a team is fun. A state of openness and connection is fun, whether you are an introvert or extrovert, a CEO, or a certified nurse assistant. Everyone loves the “Aha” moments when solutions to a problems come into view. The Intelligence of Fun unlocks the keys to seeing solutions to problems as fun – being solution minded and not problem focused.
The point is that working within a culture of playfulness and the Intelligence of Fun is proven to increase productivity, motivation, creativity, new learning, and staff engagement. It affects everything … from the bottom line up.
- Radical Leadership
A Radical Leader is someone who knows deeply, in their heart, who and what to follow.
With strong elements of relevance and levity, Craig challenges the audience to consider what an effective leader is: someone who leads by example; who takes themselves lightly while leading from purpose; who is willing to be vulnerable, who champions others, can own their “stuff”, and knows their weaknesses. Someone who taps into their innate creativity, joy, and passion, and helps others do the same.
Radical Leadership will bring your people back to their authentic selves, and create enthusiasm for your organization’s mission.
