An Ethical 3%: Transforming Your Work, Your Team, and Making A Difference

What is an Ethical 3%? It’s the extra 3% of productivity you get from people without having to ask for it. When your team and leaders feel supported and have the tools to support each other, they’ll always have that extra level of engagement that ultimately affects your bottom line.
As there is no “one size fits all” recipe to fast-track success, Mitch creates trust and comfort on a level playing field to create the support, engagement and interaction that fits YOUR team’s uniqueness and culture. Recognizing that you are a part of something no one else has creates a pride that fuels a happy workplace. A happy workplace will produce an easy ethical 3% more productivity.
Mitch provides the tools to move beyond status quo, tapping into each individual’s ability to be self-aware of how they fit into the team and give them the tools to grow and exceed their own expectations.

Finding the Leader Within

We all possess what it takes to lead. Often he/she who appears to be following is leading. Are you the leader? Perhaps you need to discover the leader that lies within you. Learn, define and experience how YOU lead. Develop and define your own measuring stick of the leader you are and where you are happiest to be. Experience how you’re going to do it.

Health and Safety Is More than Just Health And... Well… Safety… It’s An Appreciation of Life

Tragedy does not have to be the introduction to health and safety – and showing up with common sense and attention to detail is a great start. Living life large and knowing that every moment is amazing is the best catalyst to keep tragedy at bay. Life is awesome! Nothing is worth jeopardizing your life as you want it.

Mitch Dorge

Team Strength | Building Leadership | Drummer, Crash Test Dummies

Mitch Dorge is a happy guy. So much so that he was sought after to participate in the Sarah Spinks documentary about people that have attained true happiness in life. As one of five individuals In Pursuit of Happiness, Mitch sheds a fair bit of light on a few things – but what seems most evident to him is that his life’s accomplishments (so far) are a by-product of being a happy guy. Mitch should know, after all, he’s a celebrated musician that has achieved fame, success and world-wide success, but to Mitch, happiness is not defined by his accomplishments alone (although the accomplishment list is long!).

So, throughout the last 14 years, Mitch has not only shared his thoughts, but has given his North American audiences the chance to experience this happiness. In spending an hour with Mitch, you will not only hear his unconventional ideas about where true happiness comes from, you’ll feel it and experience it for yourself.

Whether Mitch is speaking to youth, a Chamber of Commerce, Teachers, Parents, Multi-national Corporations, or welcoming guests at a local charity fundraiser, somehow people are more likely to walk out a whole lot happier than when they walked in. We think he just might be catchy.

Background

As a drummer, (and few would define him so narrowly) he can be found on a minimum of 25 albums – recordings with everyone from local up-and-coming artists to mega artists such as the Crash Test Dummies (11 million records sold worldwide), a band which he has also been a member of since 1991. You’ll also often find Mitch in the Album credits as producer, engineer or even playing some other instrument. He has three Grammy nominations, a Juno and 11 Juno nominations, appearances on Letterman (three times), Arsenio, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan O’Brian (three times), and a most proud moment – Saturday Night Live. After a Prairie Music Award, almost 20 years of touring the world over, and receiving the 2016 Sir Hugh John McDonald Memorial Award, you’d think that might be enough to fuel the happiness tank. However, research from the doc says all that is just the icing on the cake.

Testimonial

Mitch presented to our group during the last time slot of a very full three-day meeting, so we needed someone engaging and energetic. Mitch absolutely delivered! He had a very “unique” way of interacting with the audience that was lighthearted, yet resonated with everyone at some point throughout his presentation. You could tell that Mitch had done his homework about our company as he referenced our culture and priorities throughout his presentation.

Testimonial

I've received a number of emails today from people expressing their appreciation for you. I am not so good at expressing gratitude in person, especially to the level of excellence that you do. I’ve invited close to 30 keynote speakers for such events. You may be #1 for me. I, like most others, respond to genuineness and a willingness to be vulnerable.
