Elatia Abate’s Speech Topics

  • Leading in the 21st Century: How Regenerative Resilience™ Can Help You Thrive

    The pandemic was just a small taste of much greater disruptions coming our way. In the next decade, we’re going to experience A CENTURY of change. Many of us barely survived the first round — proof that our old leadership models and strategies are no longer sustainable. If we want to not only survive, but thrive, we need to embody the practices of Regenerative Resilience.

    In this talk based on Elatia's groundbreaking leadership program, Regenerative Resilience, she guides audiences through three proven strategies that can be used to empower success in the face of disruption.

    Audiences Will Learn:

    • How resilience, when combined with regeneration, is a superior method to our old
    • models of thinking
    • The three components of Regenerative Resilience: clarity, fearlessness (not courage) and connection
    • Practical steps to build and integrate these strategies into every aspect of their life.
  • Futurist Leadership: How to Turn Trends into Tangible Results

    Futurist thinking is now a vital skill in our rapidly changing world. It not only helps us survive but gives us the power to thrive, by helping us create opportunities within our personal lives and workplaces.

    In this timely talk, Elatia teaches audiences how to think like futurists to enable their leadership in an increasingly disrupted world and turn trends into tangible results with accessible tools that can be applied to their day-to-day lives.

    Audiences Will Learn:

    • Why futurist thinking is imperative and the implications of not using it
    • How to turn current trends and disruptions into tangible results that create an impact
    • Specific strategies to help secure a competitive edge in their career or markets
  • The Future of Now: 3 Strategies to Prepare in a Period of Accelerated Change

    As a former corporate executive turned futurist, Elatia Abate has spent the past few years researching the impact of technology and disruptive forces on our world. In her findings, Elatia discovered that even though major disruptions are approaching us at lightning speed, it's still possible for us to thrive.

    In this talk that marries both theoretical and practical ideas, she offers three key strategies to help audiences prepare for and calmly navigate the chaos of the now and future.

    Audiences Will Learn:

    • What is currently at stake, and why “now” is the most powerful time for the future
    • Outdated paradigms around strategy and work, and forward-thinking models that are imperative for success
    • How to identify and design fulfilling opportunities despite the unknown
  • The First Energetic Revolution: Empowering Yourself in the Quantum Age

    How we work, live, and are is changing faster than any other time in history. In fact, the speed of change has accelerated from exponential to instantaneous.

    The World Economic Forum says we have stepped into the 4th Industrial Revolution, the so-called “Age of Convergence.” However, what we have actually entered is the first energetic revolution, thanks to the technologies that make the ubiquitous connectivity of the Internet of Things possible, combined with a growing understanding of quantum physics, mechanics, and computing.

    What does this mean in general, and as important, what does this mean for our leadership? How can we develop our capacity to lead successfully in an emergent world?

    Poised at the intersection of the futures of work, strategy, and leadership, this dynamic conversation will explore how rigid, data-driven strategies limit rather than expand the potential for businesses to thrive. We will examine the logic and applicability of quantum dynamics for your organization, why working in community is more important than ever, and provide practical tools to help you turn uncertainty into impact.
