The Hero Mindset

When we reflect on incredible accomplishments from remarkable people, it is easy to label them as a “hero”. We voluntarily declare them as a special character in this world who have unique abilities that we can’t master ourselves.

The Hero Mindset is something Kevin developed himself through nearly two decades of challenges. Not only was Kevin able to dig himself out of depression, but he learned how to walk again, make Team Canada, and has built a successful corporate team-building program, the Sledge Hockey Experience.

By focusing on the small things that make a big difference, both you and your organization can learn to look at setbacks, difficult times, and change as something to embrace rather than be discouraged by.

You can view your challenges as new opportunities, and rather than run away from your problems, learn to lean into them.

The Hero Mindset is something we all can adopt to help drive results and embrace change.

Outcomes include:

  • Recognize daily Hero Moments where opportunities exist for change
  • Develop new habits to drive results
  • Refresh team spirit to embrace change

 

 

Kevin Rempel

Change Management Expert | Mental Health Advocate | Paralympic Bronze Medalist

Kevin Rempel has surmounted incredible life-challenges to reach the Olympic podium and now to bring his powerful message of hope and resilience to audiences through speaking and entrepreneurship.

A freestyle motocross accident left Kevin an incomplete paraplegic and was told by doctors he would likely never walk again. A hunting accident, four years previous, had left Kevin’s father also paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.

Determined to walk again, Kevin willed himself to move just one toe, and then another and another until – eventually – he not only walked again but was able to become one of Canada’s best Paralympic athletes earning a Bronze medal at the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.

Today, through his keynote speaking and corporate team building program, The Sledge Hockey Experience, Kevin shares his personal story – inspiring others that even when you have every reason to quit, you must keep going.

By adopting The Hero Mindset, you too can become the hero of your own movie. Unlock the mindset that enables you and your organization to drive results and embrace change.
