  • Building World Class Teams: The 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy

    What do the world's most successful teams have in common? — 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.

    Robyn Benincasa takes your team on a fast-paced multimedia adventure which 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!).

    During her "8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy" keynote, this World Champion Adventure Racer, CNN Hero and San Diego Firefighter has attendees buzzing with inspired ideas about how to raise their team to the next level (against all odds), both personally and professionally. And your team will take home simple and easily applied skills that 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." The epic, entertaining and meaningful stories and videos shared in Robyn's "Building World Class Teams" keynote leaves your team with a deep understanding: with true Human Synergy they will go farther AND faster in pursuit of their goals!

    The 8 Essential Elements of Human Synergy:

    • Total commitment
    • Empathy and Awareness
    • Adversity Management
    • Mutual Respect
    • 'We' Thinking
    • Ownership of the Project
    • Relinquishment of Ego
    • Kinetic Leadership

  • Why Winners Win

    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 the 'Why Winners Win' keynote? 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. They will leave energized and empowered to create consistent world-class results in every aspect of their lives!

  • Leading Through Change

    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 their teammates to 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.

    Robyn's stories and meaningful messages will not only entertain and amaze…your 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…

  • Stay SAFER: How Great Leaders Inspire "Commitment" Versus "Compliance"

    In her "why bad accidents happen to good people" safety keynote, Robyn Benincasa takes your team on a compelling and unforgettable multimedia adventure, including video footage and analysis of preventable disasters and thrilling safety success stories from the worlds of adventure sports and firefighting. This World Champion Adventure Racer, San Diego Firefighter, and New York Times Best Selling Author offers unique, simple, yet extremely effective tools for inspiring the people that we work with and work for to be SAFER every day!

    Why Do Bad Accidents Happen to Good People? According to research, it's as simple as ABCD:

    • A: Attitude: Not Me, Not This Time, Not My Place, Not My Job
    • B: Background and Preparation
    • C: Circumstances (Preventable or Non-Preventable? Hint: 80% are preventable!)
    • D: Decisions

    How Do We Inspire People to be SAFER?

    • S: Synergy: Seeing one another as TEAMMATES vs simply colleagues. We are better…together!
    • A: Adapt – Situational awareness, focus on what it takes to "win" when it comes to safety/survival versus "not lose"
    • F: Follow your R's! Rules, Roles, Regulations and Routine Procedures restore order to extraordinary circumstances
    • E: Educate and Engage: Move your teammates from Compliance (because they'll be caught) to Commitment (because they CARE)
    • R: Respect the risk/benefit ratio of your actions, and respect yourself, your teamates and your family to DWR (Do What's Right)

    Attendees will go home feeling truly inspired and empowered to keep themselves and their teammates safe because they 'want' to, not because they 'have' to. And they will leave with the desire to be a hero to their new teammates–not just the kind of hero that rushes into danger to save them, but the kind of hero that KEEPS them from endangering themselves and others. With a SAFER mindset, we ensure that the most important goal of all is achieved at the end of the day…Everyone Goes Home.

"Robyn spoke at my big US leadership meeting yesterday, and was incredible. She hit a grand slam home run, had the place buzzing and contributed in a very core way to a very successful meeting. Her story, authenticity, message, experience in medical sales and personal experience as a medical device patient all resonated with the team. I am normally skeptical of “motivational speakers”, but Robyn was so much more than that. I would recommend her to anyone." —Medtronic

"Robyn’s background and experience provide us with a unique and much needed perspective for our RealTime participants, and her award winning adventure racing team embodies what it means to be a leader today. We always get an INCREDIBLE response to her ‘Building World Class Teams’ sessions and adventure events." —Fast Company Magazine

"Robyn did a fantastic job of motivating the group and tying her message to the purpose of our meeting. We were focused on creating impact with our strategic initiatives and getting the team rallied behind the right behaviors and attitudes necessary to do so. Robyn was inspiring, entertaining, and challenging! Everyone left the session energized and ready to commit to action and impact. Simply fantastic!" —Siemens Industry, Inc.
