Bash’s unique approach to “Global Citizenship” empowers attendees re-structure the way they view the world- beginning with themselves. Being a Global Citizen begins with believing in our own potential. By creating a strong foundation within ourselves, with our co-workers and on our stoop, we will then be able to create lasting change in the greater world. Bash encourages each of us to realize our full potential- thereby becoming inspired members of our families, our organizations and ultimately- our world.
The step-by-step methods in this talk encourage attendees to shift limited perspectives, thereby viewing themselves, others and their world through a more empowering lens. We can each become Global Citizens, because it has nothing to do with what we do for a living, or where we are in the world, but how we care for others. Service is not the by-product of success, it is the starting point.
The three essential steps from the “Stoop” can serve as the basis for profound personal transformation and deep connection with others. These steps enable us to strengthen our relationship with ourselves, our co-workers and those with whom we have no seeming connection- be it a Japanese Sumo Wrestler or our next-door neighbor.
Bash’s all-inclusive approach to relationship building has been cultivated for 30+ years, starting with his ‘stoop’ in Brooklyn, where his childhood friends shared a combined total of over 13 nationalities. In this flagship talk Bash drives home the ease of relationship building with a personal, yet universal method he’s applied everywhere from farming with mystics in Uganda to living with nomads in Mongolia.
We each have an area in our life where we are currently at Step A and we’d like to get to Step Z. We often wait for conditions to be perfect before ever taking the first step towards our goal. Our excuses appear to be boundless- no time, no money, no resources- but they usually boil down to the same core belief- a lack of faith in our potential. Bash shows how, with no formal training or credentials he created a unique career as an explorer, TV producer and renowned international storyteller. His method is simple… start from the place you wish to be.
Once we change the way in which we view ourselves we often find conditions change as well. Suddenly aspirations we felt were previously impossible to attain, are within sight. From Brooklyn to Brazil, Bash walks attendees through the practical methods for identifying their most limiting beliefs, thereby opening the doorway to a new world.
