The Way Forward
Transformational Leader and Author
Adam Markel, bestselling author, keynote speaker and resilience researcher, guides individuals and organizations to tap the power of resilience to master the challenges of constant change. With 18 years as a trial attorney building a multi-million dollar enterprise and 10 years as the CEO of a leading personal development and business training company, Adam has much to share about resilience, culture, and change. Yet, some of his most enduring lessons came from his years as an ocean first responder – a life and death environment where Adam learned the importance of cultivating high performance capacity and impeccable teamwork.
In his latest book, Change Proof, Adam shows how those principles of resilience are equally relevant today for any organization that wants to move beyond managing change to actively embracing it and using times of uncertainty, crisis, and chaos to create opportunities and stimulate individual and team growth.
