Living Inspired: Find Freedom and Lead in an Ever-Changing World

Revisit our keynote session from the Fall 2021 HR & Payroll eSymposium.

As children we raised our hand high to answer every question, connected easily with others, and believed that anything was possible. Change was not something to endure, but just another gift to fearlessly embrace and jump into.

Unfortunately, many of us experience life very differently today.

The pace of change has never been so stunningly rapid and will likely never be this slow again. With intense divisions politically, inequalities racially, and pandemic-related challenges globally, many feel discouraged, disconnected, and burned out. Social media reminds us we don’t measure up and mainstream media barrages us with constant negativity.

When he was nine years old, John O’ Leary was burned on 100% of his body and expected to die. And yet today, John reminds us that, despite the challenges outlined above, there’s reason for hope and the best is yet to come.

In this webinar replay, John identifies the substantial challenges we all face in living more fully; provides practical, inspired, and transformational solutions; and shares a framework for applying them in our day-to-day lives. In short, he explains how to live inspired.

Learning objectives:

  • Unlock the power of our natural curiosity that asks questions, pushes boundaries, and liberates us to innovate with new ways of thinking, solving, leading, and living.
  • Gain an enriched perspective and vision because how we choose to view our world determines what we see, the words we speak, the actions we take, and the results we get.
  • Learn to lead with vulnerability, embrace acceptance, spark belonging, and build community around shared goals, values, and focus — especially at a time when 64% of employees feel isolated.

This inspiring presentation will help you push past boundaries at work and in life. Complete the form to start watching!

About the Speaker

John O’Leary | Two-Time #1 National Bestselling Author & Speaker

In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given less than a 1% chance to live.

This epic story of survival (first showcased in 2008 with his parents’ acclaimed book, Overwhelming Odds) has never felt more relevant than now, as we live through the COVID-19 pandemic together.

Today, John is the author of the #1 national bestselling books, On Fire and In Awe. The latter was released in May 2020 with many saying it’s the message we all need right now. John is the host of the top-rated Live Inspired Podcast, and a live and virtual event speaker who, each year, teaches more than 50,000 people globally how to live inspired.

Consistently described as “the best speaker we’ve ever had,” John’s emotional storytelling, unexpected humor, and authenticity make each presentation unforgettable.

John’s genuine, collaborative approach to partnering with clients allowed him to understand that their biggest pain point from the fallout of the pandemic is team burnout. To address this, John expanded his Live Inspired coaching program from inspirational to transformational. His clients are saying that their teams are more focused, collaborative, and engaged than ever.

John considers his greatest success to be his marriage to his wife Beth, their four children and his relationships with friends and family.
