* Do You Speak Breakthrough?
Welcome to Mike Lipkin’s Masterclass on The New Language of Change.

So let’s talk Breakthrough. A breakthrough is a solution to a pressing problem; it’s a sudden insight that enables someone to achieve remarkable results; it’s a personal victory over doubt that liberates someone from their fear; it’s a decisive discovery that causes extraordinary success. In short, a breakthrough is whatever people need most in that moment

* Use Your Super-Powers To Lead The Recovery
In the age of Covid, every person and every organization is going through a massive reset. To Quote Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, “it’s always day one.” Every life is being rerouted in a new direction. It may occur to us as a disaster or a catastrophe. It may seem unfair or even cruel. No matter who you are, you are confronting a future that is nothing like your past.

* The 8 Secrets to Becoming a Super Virtual-Impactor
Super Virtual-Impactor: Someone that motivates others online to take action because they believe it will help them get what they want.
Covid is “virtualizing” every aspect of our lives – especially the way we
communicate. No matter what comes next, screen-to-screen contact will be the dominant form of interaction. More than any other factor, success will come from mastering the art of online presentation and communication.

*  The Inclusionary Mindset
Mike Lipkin is honoured to partner with Marva Wisdom, a Senior Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy (U of T), and director of The Black Experience Project. Together, they have created a dynamic new program called The Inclusionary Mindset. Marva and Mike would be delighted to explore how their insights can empower your team to create a culture of acknowledgment and build communities of real diversity, inclusion and belonging

* The Potentiator
The Potentiator is someone that increases others’ strength and effectiveness. They bring people together so they can achieve more than they could separately. They help actualize others’ dreams. They produce more energy than they consume. They cause breakthroughs by helping others play at their best.

* Dancing With Disruption
This program is filled with mind-opening insights and examples that will inspire you to act like a disruptor – someone that creates the future one step at a time. There is an amazing breakthrough that is currently just beyond your reach. Mike Lipkin will help you grasp it. The people closest to you are counting on it. It’s time to dance.

* Keeper of The Flame – How to Inspire Others on the Cusp of Change
This session is focused on expanding the ability of delegates to lead and inspire their colleagues and clients during times of extreme change.


“The purpose of my message is to state in words my genuine appreciation for the impact you had on Takeda Canada. You were amazing. Your genuine combination of insights, lessons, humor and humility knocked me off my feet once again. Your impact was tangible. The feedback from the audience was awesome. So many people choose to seek me out to share their “Mike moment”, sometimes it was something they needed to hear, feel or action they needed to take. Your presence had impact for the rest of our meeting and beyond.”
