What it really means to live in an age of disruption
How to accept failures (and learn from them)
The disruptive role that technology has played in business
How to assess new opportunities that are the right fit for your company
Mark Monchek’s mission is to empower conscious leaders to build great companies that make a difference in the world. He founded The Opportunity Lab to build organizations that are more conscious and sustainable – making life better for their employees, their customers, and their communities. He uncovers unconscious beliefs – shifting from scarcity to abundance. Mark has worked with leaders from Google, Apple, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, The New York Times, the Wharton School of Business, NBC, Columbia University, Time Warner, United Nations, The American Lung Association, and United Way of Greater New York to help them take their organizations to the next level of sustainable growth.
Mark’s work has been featured on the Lifetime Network, That Matters, Conscious Talk Radio, WCBS, Catalyst, Newsday, Working Women Magazine, and The San Francisco Chronicle. A chapter from Mark's forthcoming book was published as a part of OD Network's Organization Development in Practice, and the full book, Culture of Opportunity: How to Grow Your Business in an Age of Disruption, will be published and available online in May 2017.
