“Becoming your future self” is a concept that involves visualizing your ideal future self and taking actions that align with that vision. It’s a process of personal growth and development that requires self-awareness, goal setting, and intentional action.
To become your future self, you need to first identify who that future self is. What are their values, beliefs, and priorities? What do they look like, feel like, and act like? Once you have a clear vision of your future self, you can start taking steps to become that person.
One of the key steps in becoming your future self is setting goals that align with your vision. These goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. They should also be aligned with your values and priorities. By setting goals that are in line with your vision of your future self, you are creating a roadmap for your personal growth and development.
Another important aspect of becoming your future self is taking intentional action. This means being proactive in pursuing your goals and making choices that align with your vision. It also means being mindful of the choices you make and how they impact your progress towards becoming your future self.
Becoming your future self requires a commitment to ongoing personal growth and development. This means being open to learning and feedback, and continually striving to improve yourself. It also means being willing to adapt and adjust your goals and actions as necessary, as you gain new insights and experiences.
Do you ever wish you were unbreakable? That when life’s challenges came along – both physical and mental – you could carry on without pain or suffering.
Sounds good, yes? The problem is, that without struggle, there is no challenge and, without challenge, there is no achievement.
In this talk Pete explains what it means to be anti-fragile – to be able to face every adversity in life and to learn and grow stronger without breaking.
He will share how to develop a mind-set known as psychological flexibility—a powerful mental state that enables you to respond effectively to fear, anxiety, and self-doubt. You’ll also learn to develop genuine resilience that you can apply to take your performance and your well being to another level.
Innovation – the conception, introduction and establishment of something new – is something that is viewed by many from the outside, looking in. Yet, as Tolstoy said, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
Innovation must start from within, removing distraction and fear to create more space in our minds and unlock our creativity. Innovation comes from small, incremental steps and from considering all aspects of life –health and relationships, as well as work. It comes from giving people the positivity, purpose and sense of achievement to truly flourish.
Pete shares a set of best practices, creating an environment for innovation by you become more aware of what is pulling on their energy and drawing them away from what is important.
When most people think of those who perform at the highest levels of success in life that it’s because of superior talent.
Pete will share how a lack of a natural gift is irrelevant and that talent has little or nothing to do with being excellent. You can make yourself into any number of things, and you can even make yourself great or even exceptional.
So how do we change the game, unlock our true potential and from great to excellent? Backed with extensive research and experience in unlocking human potential, Pete pushes past common solutions to these problems to tackle the truth about exceptional performance in life.
Pete has personally coached some of the top performers in the world of sport and in business and he will share the secrets of these people who produce excellent results in what they do.

the new route map to becoming an Inspirator: a leader in a new age.
Become a leader who inspires others by being the example. understand How and why leaders are able to perform at a high level.
Creating inspiring leaders in your business
Leading a successful business can often
feel like a battle. You are at war with the competition; you are fighting to provide the best service for ever-more demanding customers; you are up against economic pressures which make it all even more of an uphill struggle.
And where are your people who are supposed to be your foot soldiers? Instead of standing by your side and helping you to victory they all seem to be dragging their feet and pulling in different directions.
No wonder leaders feel wounded!
In so many organisations this sense of being in a war zone is palpable. People are afraid, exhausted and can’t see how they are making a difference. They want a cause worth fighting for and yet they can’t find it.
So how can you fire people up to follow your lead? What will it take to inspire them?
Great leadership is not about telling people what to do or pushing them along, whether they like it or not. It is becoming a leader that people want to follow. You become the example. You know what you stand for and stand for it every day. You work on yourself constantly so that you can look in the mirror and say, “this is a person that I would follow.”
In this presentation Pete shares the new route map to becoming an Inspirator: an inspiring leader for the new age. This is a place where leaders are no longer dictators, but visionaries and motivators. They are not only at the top of their game but inspire others to be at the top of theirs too. Based upon the research and thinking from Pete’s new book The Inspirators, he will share his wisdom from 10 years of working with some of the top leaders in industry.
Audiences will learn how and why leaders are able to perform at the highest level even in challenging times and manage to get the best out of people. They will discover how to become a leader themselves – one who inspires others by being the example.
Just imagine: What would it be like to be surrounded by people who are inspired to be their best every day?

Mastering human behaviour in challenging times
Our modern-day working world is in a state of crisis. Every day there seems to be more pressure on everyone to do more with less, and to come up with new ideas to stay ahead of the competition.
The traditional demand for productivity is no longer enough. Employers now expect their workforce to be both constantly creative and constantly productive to keep up with the never-ending demands of their jobs – and it’s not working. In the rush to boost performance, we have become over-worked, over-scheduled and overwhelmed. We come to work armed with to-do lists, life-hacks and inbox-zero mentalities. It’s exhausting!
Statistics which show that only 30% of the workforce is fully engaged and only 3% are on task and focussed, are not figures which any leader wants to hear. The truth is, people want to give their best but, for a variety of reasons, they are held back from doing so.
• For many, their time is spent being distracted and unable to engage.
• Some simply don’t have the tools to do the job – either in terms of training or equipment
• But by far the greatest barrier for most is their own minds.
Neither you, nor they, are fulfilled by this state of affairs. So how do we change the game and unlock the true potential of our people?
Backed with extensive research and experience in unlocking human potential, Pete pushes past common solutions to these problems to tackle the deeper questions of organisational culture.
Audiences will uncover the hidden power we all have to overcome obstacles, face our fears and to thrive in the modern workplace. He will show how to inspire people by who they are, what they do and how they are aligned to the vision of the organisation. In doing so, they can tap into their personal energy and creativity every day.
You do the maths. If you could get 30% extra from 70% of your people, what would that do for your business?

“We used Pete Cohen at a Barclays Agile Fest held at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff. It was an event that was attended by over 170 people from all business areas of Barclays, along with a wide and varied representation from the agile community, from across the UK and a number of different industries. Pete’s brief as the first keynote speaker on the day’s agenda was to enthuse the audience, and to get them thinking about what they wanted to achieve from the event. He certainly did this and he was very well received. Feedback from the attendees was fantastic! Pete comfortably delivered the brief and was a real asset to the event. Can’t wait to work with him again in the future.”
