When your job feels like an uphill battle

4 – Heatstroke Climb 


When your job feels like an uphill battle, like me trying to climb the dunes in the desert of death in China, what can you do?

When organisations bring me in to give virtual talks, I draw parallels between the discouragement, exhaustion, fear, challenge and setback faced on an expedition like this, and surviving and thriving in today’s business world. I especially focus on the mindsets we need to get through the tough times and make the most of the opportunities.

I was delighted by this testimonial, given to me after I spoke at the Novartis Leadership Conference recently:

Rob, you don’t realize how much you impacted our team in terms of mindset. I stopped counting how many times your name popped out, or how many times the analogy of desert and dunes was used. Thank you so much for your outstanding speech!


Please do reach out to me, if you’d like to know more about how I might help motivate your teams.
