According to Raphael Louis Viton, Innovation Coach and Leadership Trainer for more than 25% of the Fortune 100 companies, the outlook is encouraging. Leaders of leaders have all the capacity we need to effectively deal with change. Not all of us have done what it takes to convert that capacity into capability. Here are three things to focus on to embody radical adaptation and be more ready:
Stronger Mindset and Muscles
Build the mental, physical, and emotional capacity to manage the tension/pressure of chronic change. A “next level” inner game and outer game are necessary to execute and transform simultaneously.
An Expert Experimentation Lifestyle
As described more fully in Raphael’s innovation training programs, he invites leaders to become more masterful treasurer hunters. Embracing an experimentation lifestyle is the way we practice learning faster. His motto of “make mistakes” speaks to the heart of what is required to lead a winning team in today’s environment.
An Expanded Definition of Success
When we learn to see more, with new eyes and new distinctions we can do more. When we see in 3-D we can more easily facilitate the direct business benefits across three dimensions of success.
- The self (I): Facilitate high engagement/fulfillment
- The team/relationships (WE): Facilitate high trust
- The task/achievement (IT): Facilitate high performance

Wow, Lynda and Allen, what a great experience!
Americans are suffering a global pandemic that has hit the US very hard, they are dealing with a national Black Lives Matter movement of civil unrest, and they are reeling from an economic depression that has put 40+ million people out of work. On top of all that, the people who attended today’s workshop are working beyond capacity to help small-business owners save their businesses and recover their livelihood.
Stressful? You bet!
In two hours, you offered practical tips, useful tricks, and important information, using breakout session that let me address the things that are personal to me in the midst of everyone else. I left the session with pages of things I can do immediately to reduce (or embrace) the pressure. And I felt a lightness of being that I haven’t had in a long while.
For me, this workshop was a game changer. I cannot thank you enough.
