Positive Paradox

The art of discovering useful insights between contradictory beliefs

In future, we will look back on the present era as an important moment in history. As the incredibly disruptive power of technology intersects with the rising tide of social justice, decision-making has never been more complex. Leadership seems more complicated—and more risky—than ever before. Every leader is under ever-increasing pressure to make the ‘right’ decisions, and yet are so regularly forced into positions of impossible compromise that it often feels like there are no right answers.

There are paradoxes in:

  • Personal life—people who avoid conflict, are always in conflict.

  • Family life—if you care too much for your children, they don’t learn to care for themselves.

  • Organisations—businesses leaders that for noble reasons “don’t focus on the almighty dollar”, end up spending all day desperately trying to find the money to keep the doors open.

  • Society—in attempting to address inequality, we condemn individuals within minorities to victimhood.

But there is a way forward. At the intersection of competing and contradictory beliefs, paradox can have a positive spin. In this remarkable presentation, Col Fink unpacks his deep love of mental models—the lenses through which we interpret and understand the universe—to teach us a new way to make decisions and choose a path forward.

 

About Col

By 1990 Col was a professional actor, a performing musician, and the founding president of the Cool Kids Club. He's now a little older, but everything else remains much the same, including the child-like curiosity and wonder.

By day, he spends his time creating programs, environments, and cultures where people succeed. By night, he entertains, educates and inspires from the stage.

As the Head of Programs at Thought Leaders, Col is deeply connected with leading thinkers around the globe in topics ranging from leadership, management, gender equity, productivity, parenting, and much more, giving him an incredibly broad understanding of the world and the individual perspectives within it.

Befriending Fear and Letting Go

About Rachel

Rachel is a speaker, trainer, award-winning artist and the author of Super Power Baby Project (Outstanding Book of the Year 2015 IPPY New York). This exceptional book celebrates the lives and abilities of children with chromosomal or genetic conditions, and was inspired by Rachel's late daughter Evie, who was born with a very rare condition herself.

In the two and a half years of Evie's life, Rachel learnt a lot about the use of language in the health system, and has spent the subsequent years continuing to explore the impact and implications of how it is used by health professionals – to positive and negative effect. This book is Evie's legacy, as is Rachel herself, and both have much to teach us about ourselves, and how we negotiate conflict, grief, hope, uniqueness, celebration, and a meaningful life.

 
 

In this presentation, Rachel shares some of her own experiences in the health industry, and explains how labels and diagnoses are reducing our capacity to embrace difference and inclusion. She advocates for empowering and open-hearted communication, and believes that befriending fear, and letting go, are vital parts of the grief process, and the best way to grow and move forward.

The Rising

It is not what happens to you.
It is how you respond…

To be disrupted or to grow that is the question. In this speech, Mark explores this notion using his vast corporate experience, adoration of all things transformation & own personal journey to engage the audience to respond in an unexpected way.

Transformative companies and ideas upend markets by doing something truly different —they see a need and create something for a market which may not yet exist. After working with some of the world’s best companies, Mark discovered that the framework of transformation can also be applied to individuals. So, if you are… 

  • a high potential individual ready to make a big career leap

  • a leader trying to jump start innovative thinking in your company

  • a self-starter ready to make a pivot in your business, or

  • a thought leader ready to ignite the passion from within

then this is a keynote not to be missed.

 

About Mark

Mark Truelson is not your everyday speaker. He leads from the heart and brings love and emotion to the normally sterile world of Corporate Australia.

To Mark, there’s nothing more tragic than when a human questions his or her worth. He provides the tools to employees that can ignite the passion and overcome dormancy in the workplace - the very dormancy that fuels doubt, dismay, and even personal crisis. These tools aren’t just business savvy. They’re personally transformative.

We are living in an era of accelerating disruption—responding with new learning curves is a vital skill. If you want to be successful in unexpected ways, Mark will guide you down your own growth path.
