  • The Obstacle Is The Way: The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph

    Drawing its inspiration from stoicism, the ancient Greek philosophy of enduring pain or adversity with perseverance and resilience. Stoics focus on the things they can control, let go of everything else, and turn every new obstacle into an opportunity to get better, stronger, tougher. As Marcus Aurelius put it nearly 2000 years ago: “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” 

    In this session, Ryan Holiday, bestselling author, shows us how some of the most successful people in history—from John D. Rockefeller to Amelia Earhart to Ulysses S. Grant to Steve Jobs—have applied stoicism to overcome difficult or even impossible situations. Their embrace of these principles ultimately mattered more than their natural intelligence, talents, or luck.

  • Finding Your Super Powers

    Super powers are the unique abilities we have used all our lives to excel where others have struggled. The more we use our super powers, the more energized we feel and the better the results we achieve. Conversely, when we are deprived of using our super powers, we feel drained and miserable. But most of us don’t know what our super powers actually are.

    In this session, three-time BankOnPurpose speaker, Mikey Trafton, will share his recipe for identifying your own super powers and organizing your company to maximize the opportunities to use them.

    What does it really take to serve today's small businesses? While digital capabilities are in demand and certainly table stakes, there's more to consider. Recent research into what small businesses say they need from their financial institutions and what they’re not getting today reveals that FIs must strike a balance if they want to satisfy commercial customers. How well do you know the SMB customers you're trying to attract, and what changes does your FI need to make to retain them once you have them?
