Strategies to Achieve More and Build Resilience in Oneself and Others

January 11 @ 5:30 pm 8:00 pm Pacific Time

Two years ago, most HR Execs would have said it would be “impossible” to have everyone work from home—but then most accomplished it overnight.

We just survived a crazy pandemic and for many of us, it was our biggest personal or professional challenge making us realize we can do more today than we thought possible. And with anything difficult, it makes our resilient muscle stronger and prepares us to accomplish even bigger and more profound achievements. As 2022 starts, this is a timely discussion as each of us will likely set our organization and personal direction for 2022.

You will learn how to stretch yourself and your organizations further along with proven strategies to persevere through difficult times as this won’t be your last big challenge. Bryan’s book, “EPIC Performance: Lessons from 100 Executives and Endurance Athletes on Reaching Your Peak” will be available in Summer 2022

Learning Objectives:
1. Expand one’s ability to stretch themselves and their teams beyond what they say is impossible based on over 100 interviews from accomplished executives
2. Apply practical strategies to persevere through challenging times.

Speaker Bio:
Bryan Gillette is the founder and Principal Consultant for Summiting Group, a leadership and organizational development consulting firm aimed to help individuals and teams aim higher and reach their peak. He knows what it is like to get to the summit both in his business and personal life.

For more than 25 years, he has led human resources, leadership development, and communications for fast-paced, high-technology companies of all sizes. Before starting his own business, he was the Vice President of Human Resources for a mid-size, global-technology company as well as holding multiple executive human resource positions.

With his extensive experience in leadership development and organizational effectiveness, he has guided teams through strategy, communication, alignment, change management, and performance improvement challenges. Bryan routinely facilitates executive retreats to form, then align teams around the organization’s strategy.

Outside of the office, Bryan has demonstrated success as an ultra-distance endurance athlete. He has cycled across the U.S., completed a 300-mile ride in one day, and finished many 50- and 100-mile ultradistance runs. At age 47, he ran 205 miles around Lake Tahoe–8 back-to-back marathons—in 76 hours with 90 minutes of sleep.

From his experience as an executive, his accomplishments as an ultra-distance athlete, and his interviews of 100 accomplished leaders, Bryan recently authored the book, “EPIC Performance: Lessons from 100 Executives and Endurance Athletes on Reaching Your Peak” targeted for publication in the summer of 2022.

To give back to the community, Bryan started up and ran the Bridge of Opportunity, a 501(c)3 foundation to provide foster kids scholarships to attend college. He was the co-chair and founding board member for iGATE, an incubator to assist start-up green-related companies. He was a mentor to social entrepreneurs through Santa Clara University’s Miller Center. And, he was the co-race director for the Pleasanton Run for Education, a 3,000-person running race, which raised over $250,000 for the local schools.

Having traveled around the world for one year with his wife and two boys, he now lives with them in the San Francisco Bay area.
