  • new realities of resource scarcity,
  • opportunities in product development,
  • rise of the circular economy,
  • supply chain sustainability,
  • employee engagement,
  • transparency and communications.

Sustainability is fundamentally about smart business and innovation. It is most effective when it creates value through cost reductions, strategic advantage, engagement, and increased sales. In these unparalleled economic times, smart companies are seeing the immediate and long term benefits of reorienting their thinking toward sustainable systems: from operations; to supply chain; to management; to product line.

Making The World Round Againsm

While pessimism rules and hope appears scarce, a recent convergence of business, science, and spirituality is creating Conscious Capitalism and restoring hope to the future.

Abstract: Pessimism has taken hold of our culture, while hope appears to be scarce. This lecture & dialogue shares how hope is everywhere, just below the surface. Real changes are occurring locally and globally in business and culture creating a new paradigm for capitalism. Matthew will share how through his cross-disciplined studies he continually finds signs of hope that others seem to miss. He discovered that seemingly disconnected concepts in business, science, spirituality, and culture were in reality interrelated and are being manifested both locally and globally as an unconscious positive global paradigm shift.

Attitudes & Perspectivessm

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

Abstract:Matthew Rochte presents a powerful tool to help people identify, manage and choose their perspectives and l earn how perspectives affects results. It is an interactive exercise that raises awareness about how our attitudes affect the way we see the world and the results we get. The ability to recognize and manage your state of mind – in the moment – is an essential professional and personal skill because how you see the world impacts your thinking, emotions, decisions, and actions.

Eat Your Elephant

Q: So how do you eat an elephant? A: One bite at a time.
Eat Your Elephant  is an Integrated Planning and training program that turn strategies into results. Our retreats, programs, and methods are simple, fun, and easy to understand. Eat Your Elephant is not just another motivational speaker or a feel good self-help seminar, it is grounded in reality and teaches doing as well as knowing. They are effective because we understand the basic human need to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. We help people connect daily activities with their personal vision.

By the way, elephants are those big ideas, big visions, big goals, or the huge intentions that we keep procrastinating on or seem insurmountable. Well, until you take your first bite and start chewing the rest is just talk.
