Transform Crisis into Clarity and Advantage

Dan Thurmon

Harness the transformative power of chaos.

When you are facing exponential change or uncertainty at work or at home, it can seem unique to you and overwhelming, but the truth about chaos is that it isn’t personal, and it doesn’t have to be negative.

In Positive Chaos, award-winning keynote speaker, author, and executive coach Dan Thurmon helps you better understand the true nature of chaos, including the positive aspects that you can harness to learn, grow, and excel. Using illuminating findings from a first-of-its-kind study, 2022 State of Chaos in the Workplace, Thurmon reveals the current impact of chaos experienced by the workforce and shares effective strategies and leadership attributes for succeeding in chaotic times. From discovering how credibility stems from vulnerability, to why being honest about what you don’t yet know can empower others to feel more confident and capable of contributing, you will learn how to improve yourself while becoming a better leader.

Chaos does not have to be confusing or debilitating. You can reach new goals, grow, and make meaningful contributions in life and in business even in the throes of change and unpredictability. Positive Chaos will help you to learn to understand and embrace chaos, rise above the noise, and be truly proactive, helpful, and fulfilled.
