What do the world's most successful teams have in common? The ability to upgrade their "teamwork" to Human Synergy!

If your goal is to increase performance by inspiring your team to adapt, overcome, and win as ONE, this keynote is the perfect message to set the tone for your event.

Through her 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy keynote, Eco-Challenge Adventure Racing World Champion and San Diego Firefighter Robyn Benincasa takes your team on a fast-paced multimedia adventure that visually and viscerally imparts the attitude and mindset that allows groups of ordinary people to accomplish truly extraordinary feats together...especially when the stakes are high, the goals are audacious, and constant change is the only thing your team can count on (aside from one another!). Attendees will leave the room buzzing with inspired ideas about how to raise their team to the next level against all odds, both personally and professionally, and take home some simple and easily applied skills that will allow them to create Human Synergy with all of the teammates in their lives.

There is an old proverb that says "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." But the stories and videos that Robyn shares from the most epic, entertaining and meaningful moments in the sport of Adventure Racing will leave your team with a deep understanding that with true Human Synergy they will go farther AND faster in pursuit of their goals!

The 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy:

  • Ownership of the Project
  • Relinquishment of Ego
  • Kinetic Leadership

Extreme Performance: Why Winners Win
Motivation
What are the 5 most common attributes of people who make a lifelong habit of winning? In her Extreme Performance: Why Winners Win keynote, World Champion Eco-Challenge Racer and Firefighter Robyn Benincasa uses the model of Adventure Racing to highlight the mindset and common attributes of world-class athletes, teams and leaders in their quest for victory - and provides some real world guidelines and principles for reaching the top of the podium in any endeavor.

What are the four most common attributes of people who make a lifelong habit of winning?

Inspired by a Fast Company Magazine article entitled "Extreme Teamwork," which featured Robyn's team of World Champion adventure athletes as well as "Winners" from all walks of life, Robyn's Why Winners Win keynote outlines the common traits, attitudes and mindset of the world's most consistently high performing leaders in their eternal pursuit of world class results.

The 'Best of the Best' experience times of great challenge and change just like everyone else. But with characteristic Courage, Luck (Opportunity + Preparation), Adversity Management Skills, and a keen ability to create Synergy with their colleagues, Winners possess the ability to continually motivate and inspire themselves and those around them to the top of the podium in any endeavor.

The icing on the cake of Why Winners Win? Attendees will experience the thrill of peak performance and exceptional leadership through Robyn s incredible stories and breathtaking video footage of extreme teams in action, and they will leave energized and empowered to create consistent world class results in every aspect of their lives!

Leading Through Change
Leadership
Change is the only thing that stays the same. It is our response to that change that dictates our success.

How do the world's most consistently high performing leaders ALWAYS find a way to get the finish line and achieve their goals against all odds? Are they lucky, blessed or immune to setbacks? Nope. Great leaders experience times of great turbulence, challenge and change in every aspect of their lives  but it is their attitude and mindset that carries them and their teammates to greater heights in the FACE of that change.

Leading through change means being ruled by the hope of success versus the fear of failure, embracing setbacks as a chance to learn and excel, and never letting the pursuit of perfection hinder progress. In her Leading Through Change keynote, Robyn shares incredible stories and videos from the worlds of Adventure Racing and firefighting that illustrate how great leaders succeed against all odds and triumph in the face of adversity  and your entertained and amazed attendees will walk away with some easily applied leadership skills that will help them shatter the norm, see challenges versus roadblocks and inspire their teammates to once again see a future full of possibilities.

About Speaker Robyn Benincasa

Robyn Benincasa, New York Times bestselling author and World Champion Adventure Racer - accepts full blame for inspiring people to do insane things like climb Mount Kilimanjaro, run their first triathlon, start their own adventure racing teams, or start their own businesses. This is, after all, who she is and what she does: Robyn Benincasa inspires people to do amazing things.

Benincasa has made an art form of extreme performance by competing and winning at the highest levels of sport and business. Revered as one of “California‟s Fittest Women”, she spent her youth competing at the state and national level in gymnastics, diving, cross country, and judo in which she became a national champion. Soon after earning a Marketing degree from Arizona State University, Robyn started at the top Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company where she earned the prestigious “Rookie of the Year” award.

While consistently achieving top sales in her day job, Robyn completed six Ironman races, with two podium finishes. Then the adventure race bug bit.

In her 15-year career as a professional adventure racer, Robyn Benincasa has competed in close to 40 expedition-length events - gnarly, multiday, multisport killers such as Primal Quest and Eco-Challenge. She has biked through jungles in Borneo, climbed Himalayan giants in Nepal, trekked across lava fields in Fiji, rafted rapids in Chile - and racked up multiple world championship titles along the way. In her spare time, Robyn, is a full-time firefighter in San Diego, on the nation's first all-female crew.

NBC, ABC, CNN, ESPN, USA Network, Discovery Channel, Outdoor Life Network, PBS and FOX have all featured Robyn and her amazing accomplishments. Add to those network credits editorials in Fast Company, Sport Illustrated, Vogue, Corporate & Incentive Travel, The New York Times, Outside, and Harper's Bazaar.

Robyn recently set a new Guinness World Record for paddling.

Benincasa launched World Class Teams and its sister company Flashover Seminars to bring her unique and inspiring perspective on teamwork to the corporate world via keynotes, seminars and teambuilding programs. Starbucks, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Aramark, Honda/Acura, Tony Robbins, Allianz, Wal-Mart, Timberland, Napster, AT&T and Earthlink rely on Robyn’s Extreme Performance: Why Winners Win, High Performance Leadership and her signature program The 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy. Her unforgettable presentations have taught countless high-performance leaders all over the world about “Building World Class Teams” and the followership skills necessary for dynamic role shifting and true teamwork.

Robyn Benincasa founded the Project Athena Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to helping women who've endured medical setbacks achieve their athletic dreams, whether it means climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or running a local 10K. The goal? To encourage survivors not just to survive - but to thrive in the wake of their diagnoses.

The biggest, strongest, and fastest competitors are not guaranteed a successful finish. It’s the teams that truly understand interdependence, have empathy for one another, share common ideals, manage adversity well, and check their egos at the start line that win these races. In my experience, the same is true in the corporate world.”
