The 3 Key Elements of Resilience

Kevin’s interactive keynote on the 3 Key Elements of Resilience speaks to passion and perseverance and one’s capacity to move forward regardless of setback. The keynote builds around a question Kevin was asked by a young offender while skiing to the South Pole in 2009. “How do I keep going? Why don’t I quit?” As Kevin marches to the South Pole he reflects on the qualities, behaviors and pathways that have kept him going. What in his adventure experience has allowed him to maintain his passion and perseverance for all these years? How has he learned to be resilient? Large scale studies into things like giftedness, future success and job performance have all concluded that resilience is as important, if not more so, than intelligence. Research has shown that resilience is not a character trait but rather something that can be learned, cultivated and developed. Throughout the keynote Kevin engages with the audience by pausing three times and letting the participants have meaningful discussions among themselves, allowing them time to internalize what’s been delivered and to anchor the message through conversation. On January 7th, 2009, Kevin and two teammates skied into the South Pole faster than anyone in history, breaking the world record by over 5 days. Kevin has cultivated his level of resilience and understands what it takes. His answer to the question “How do I keep going? Why don’t I quit?” will inspire and empower your audience.
