Main Messages

The Cappannelli’s are experts in the fields of organizational and individual change, motivation and performance – both individual and organizational. They empower, motivate and inspire their audiences through a series of programs that are highly interactive as well as informative. Their messages are appropriate for audiences ranging from Boards of Directors to line employees. Their in depth experience and unique insights have been gathered over the last 25 years spent working with some of the world’s leading organizations, the people who lead them, a number of world leaders and hundreds of thousands of people in the general public. Here are a few of the main messages they explore in a wide range of talks, programs, seminars as well as in their customized consulting and training services.

Finding value, purpose and meaning in the workplace and in private life. Whether running a multi-national, starting a new business, or setting a course for one’s personal life, the Cappannelli's believe that real and sustainable success begins and ends with a focus on finding greater purpose, meaning and value both at work and at home. To arrive at this level of authenticity there are some simple and powerful strategies every organization and every individual can follow. This is the territory explored in Authenticity and Say Yes To Change and the talks and programs that issue from the material in these books.

Change as an ally. In today’s complex business, political and societal environments, we face serious challenges, unprecedented risks and a remarkable number of opportunities. There are new roles to play and new rules to play by. In fact, in order to minimize our obstacles and take maximum advantage of our opportunities, we must learn to view change as opportunity not an obstruction, an ally not an adversary. The 25 Keys To Change that underlie Say Yes To Change, provide a easy to follow and valuable roadmap.

Enhancing Individual and Organizational Productivity, Performance and Profitability – To be at the top of an industry and to achieve peak performance requires effective use of time. And effective use of time requires an understanding of the difference between “psychological and chronological” time. Mastering this difference is the key to success in today’s complex world. This is the primary ground territory of It’s About Time and other books, talks and programs.

The Future Is Now. Creating a successful, profitable future is not a mystery. Indeed, the key to tomorrow’s the success for every organization and individual is to be found in understanding the practices, beliefs and cultural strategies present today. As Peter Drucker has suggested, “if you want to know the future” invent it. And that is the message of this series of very practical and powerful talks and programs.

Finding and Maintaining Balance. Three essential components – task, process and relationship – are interdependent and should be among the most important and critical points of focus for every organization and individual. Too much attention on any one or only two of these elements leaves the individual and organization vulnerable to a series of obstacles and issues that are often impossible to overcome. In fact, without learning how to find and maintain balance in these three critical areas it is impossible to achieve true profitability and high performance. Authenticity, Say Yes To Change, The Portable Self-Enhancement Program, and It’s About Time and support this theme.

Continual Learning - The Key To Top Performance.. Our ability to meet the complex demands of these very challenging times depends to a great extend on our willingness to learn new skills and to experiment with new professional and personal strategies. This lesson is supported by 25 years of experience in the field of individual and organizational change as well as work with a number of world leaders and high achievers in a wide range of fields. Authenticity and Say Yes To Change support this theme.
