You want to feel in control. You want to do more than survive ... you want to soar!
With a background in aviation as a pilot, I tell my story about engine failure at 5,000' in a 6-passenger, single engine airplane that I flew from Tacoma to Denver.
I expand the three crucial things a pilot does when faced with The Unexpected and use them to help people not only survive, but look ahead with confidence ... and soar! The takeaways:
1. Aviate - Focus on basics first
2. Navigate - Know where you are, where you want to be, and plan a bold course to get there
3. Communicate - Get feedback on your progress from sources not emotionally involved.
It's entertainment with a point! Or three.
Dennis spoke at our (SHRM-Olympia) annual HR conference yesterday. He was engaging, energetic, and a joy to listen to and learn from! His stories and links to real-life situations engaged our audience consistently! His insights regarding how to handle unexpected situations utilizing the key phrases, AVIATE, NAVIGATE, and COMMUNICATE were easily understood and relatable. I truly look forward to working with him again! Thanks for making our conference a great success!
Dennis did an outstanding job speaking at our event. I heard many people talking about it afterwards and everyone was very pleased. I heard people saying "YOU are amazing" to others all throughout our event due to Dennis's session. I would like to have him back for another event when the timing is right.
Dennis Bauer was one of our workshop Speakers at our TOPS - Take off Pounds Sensibly Washington State Recognition Days this past weekend. Dennis was motivational, humorous and easy to understand. Our members enjoyed his talk about how to handle the unexpected in life. He was prompt and visited with our members both before and after his presentation.
Response from Dennis Bauer - Author, Motivational Speaker:
Thank you, Joyce, for the wonderful review! Much appreciated!
I had a blast with you and your TOPS crowd ... a very enthusiastic and engaged audience. And thank you for helping at the book signing table. People were lining up before I could even get there!
I'm glad I was able to contribute to the overall impact of the event.
"Dennis Bauer is a 'by God spellbinder'-- but not in the way that the rascally Harold Hill was in The Music Man. He's the full-meal deal. From Bauer's first sentence, he had everyone enthralled. His 'Aviate, Navigate, Communicate' message works wonders in every realm--not just miles high over Colorado with "EMPTY" splashed across the gas gauge! I've been following Dennis's lead for a couple weeks now and business is picking up; my "gas gauge" is no longer running on empty. You will be delighted, transfixed, and transformed. Don't miss your chance to learn from one of the best speakers and life/business coaches I've ever had the pleasure to hear."
