What do you do when the stakes are high, demands are out of control, and the future is unpredictable? 

We’ve all been there – time and again. The future will not get any easier as we live in a world with increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). In this highly interactive, story-rich TIGER Talk, you’ll explore these factors as well as three ‘Power Navigators’ that help to address intense challenges as they appear in different forms.

Also, based on an eight-year study, you will be introduced to Mark Sullivan‘s groundbreaking new leadership book, “THRIVE: When Trouble Visits!” It reviews five different mindsets presented in distinctly different ways within high-demand environments. Represented in “THRIVE” are stories that provide a glimpse into the challenging journey and successes of some extraordinary people: astronauts, governors, four-star generals, media and movie personalities, CEOs, elite athletes, university presidents, clergy, a Holocaust survivor, and dozens of others.

The stories create a blueprint on how you, too, can thrive in the face of adversity.


Mark J. Sullivan, an award-winning international speaker, university professor, and industry executive. As an organizational psychologist and change agent in Dow 30 and Global 1000 companies, he has functioned as a Chief Talent Officer, Sales and Strategy executive at United Airlines, Honeywell, Accenture, and Battelle.

Mark has cultivated order out of chaos in major global mergers and restructuring efforts. He brings decades of seasoned experience in building communities in highly disruptive environments and is known as a master storyteller and inspiring force helping to empower individuals, teams, and organizations toward a better way.

Mark is Founder and CEO of the Performance Learning Academy, a Speaker Engagement and Executive Development firm.
