  • Sometimes You Win…Sometimes You Learn

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Motivational

    Taken from the content of Dr. John Maxwell's best seller, "Sometimes You Win...Sometimes you Learn" MORE >

    You can expect to be guided down a well-lit path in the pursuit of raw leadership by examining what every human has in common; those experiences we can all say, “I have been there.” Every one of us has experienced a disappointing loss in our own personal and business lives. How we have responded to those mistakes, errors, slips in judgment or just plain missing the goal has formed us even now. No bad experience has to ultimately defeat us. This speech helps light the path to a more fulfilling life by examining loss, not from measuring what one does not have, but how loss can bring abundance. Every negative event or loss that occurs can become a great learning opportunity to take us all the newer and greater heights in our own lives. Learn how to re-evaluate those missed goals, turn them into stepping stones, and re-frame your thinking gearing you up for unmeasurable success.

  • We originally invited Israel to speak to our young adults as part of our Executive Guest Speaker Series at Year Up Chicago, a workforce development program for young adults 18-24. We thought he'd be a great fit because of his leadership, speaking skills, and professional experience. We knew his presentation style and messaging would be an ideal fit for our program and he exceeded our expectations by really relating to his audience. He was able to tailor his content to our students and spoke from the heart through real-world experiences, which allowed him to truly connect with the young adults in our program. Our staff and students repeatedly share with me how much they enjoyed his speech and the immediate impact it has had on them. Since his first speaking engagement, we've invited Israel back to speak to every class of young adults that comes to Year Up Chicago.

    If I had to describe Israel's presentation in a few words, I'd say: inspiring, engaging, and relatable.
