With most conferences and events cancelled or postponed for the foreseeable future, many workers are now working from home, perhaps struggling with productivity as they balance the needs of their job, their kids, and all the other home distractions.
"All storms, no matter how bad they are, will always pass, and the blue sky will always prevail".
We can choose to be stuck in place, worrying about everything we've lost and wishing things would return to normal, or we can focus on the things in our control and use this time to set ourselves up for success when life does return to normal. This is what I call being "Everest Ready".
I'm sure your company or organization has many questions about how to move forward. How much longer do we have to be in this? How should we approach the new week, or month, or year for what lies ahead? There's so much uncertainty.
As a veteran of 4 Everest expeditions weathering frequent brutal storms, as well as on other 8000m peaks, I have learned many lessons about not only surviving through isolation and uncertainty, but thriving.
Rather than waiting for when I can return to keynote speaking in front of live audiences, I have modified my keynote speaking address into a new webinar, "Weathering Storms and Staying Prepared" to help you and your group overcome the current challenges you are facing.
This 60 minute talk is truly uplifting and inspiring and will leave your organization with daily actionable items to help you through whatever tough times you are facing now and in the future. Check out the abstract below.

Jon was an incredible speaker and brought our group a brand new perspective on what it means to go through challenges and rise above them when it counts!
