They are the leaders and industry changers on a warpath to greatness. When a conflict runs hot, they cool it down. They refocus attention, engage emotional resistance, and set aside ego. Time and again, they tap back into motivation to double down and work harder. They encourage teams to recalibrate and aim higher. These are the game changers.

Branding is little more than sustained attention. It is also the singular thing that grows any business and the hardest to attribute. Renowned marketing expert and best-selling author Gary Vaynerchuk is fascinated by attention — the way this asset is nurtured becomes the primary variable of what happens. To win the game, invest hours into understanding the current spaces of attention: TikTok, LinkedIn, and Blockchain.
The secret to negotiation, transforming trauma and making us 31% smarter, according to neuroscience. When we are in a good mood, our brains have more capacity to operate and can give us the upper hand in negotiations, says former FBI International Hostage Negotiator and best-selling author Chris Voss. In this relaxed state, we see opportunities instead of challenges.
Workplace drama researcher Cy Wakeman calls this "flipping the toggle." When toggled down, the ego is in control, distorting reality and limiting viable options. The world is perceived as a horrible place. When toggled up? You're in your higher self — using all of your intelligence, more creative, accountable, collaborative, and inventive. These toggle positions are mutually exclusive.
So how can we go from “down” to “up” in the face of trauma and adversity? Emotional neutrality. Author of the best-selling book “The Miracle Morning,” Hal Elrod explains that every negative emotion is self-created by our resistance to our reality. To toggle up, sulk for five minutes, and then accept what you cannot change. Invite peace. Pick the emotion that will get you to the next step. Move forward.
