The Porcupine Principles —

Turning The Negative Into A Win


Imagine what it would be like if you could encourage and equip everyone on your team to embrace change as a positive process.


Let’s Get To The Point:  Change creates discomfort and tension.  How you intentionally relate to and communicate with others has a profound influence on your ability to build rapport, inspire collaboration, enhance positive camaraderie, resolve misunderstandings and to lead people while managing change.

Based on the World Famous Porcupine Races, audiences and organizations throughout the United States have laughed and learned from this highly engaging, interactive presentation about a subject no one wants to talk about:


Specifically, the conflict that exists because of Prickly People.

Everyone has a prickly person in their life or the workplace. And everyone is asking the same questions: How do we handle those moments when we encounter an uncooperative, grumpy person? What do we do when there are differing opinions? Is there a way to a successful outcome when a person on the team is resistant to change?

During The Porcupine Principles! Keynote Experience, Relational Leadership expert Steven Iwersen uses his unique conversational style and sense of humor to create shared laughter, personal ah-ha moments, and practical strategies to empower you with the insights you need to be a leader that people trust – while moving to the goal of preferred outcomes.

QUILL POWER – Your Key To Success In A Prickly World

The Power of Positive Accountability and Actions to Increase Personal Success

It has been said that “where there is a will, there is a way.”  But, finding that way is sometimes elusive or seemingly exclusive.  Achieving Championship Results can be experienced when you have the strategic skills to match that personal will.


Let’s Get To The Point:  How you perceive your circumstance and achieve your highest potential depends on your ability to attract respectful relationships, overcome limitations, resolve conflict, communicate with others, and hold yourself accountable to the strategic decisions that move you to your finish line!  If you want people to cooperate with you, partner with you, buy from you — or even love you-you’re going to have to start making an effort to be the BEST YOU.  Your success is a culmination of the attitude, mindset, and actions you choose today!


Steven takes you inside the arena of real life personal and professional challenges, and with his signature style of humor, storytelling, and interactive delivery, reveals the simple strategies that can help you redirect negative attitudes and outcomes into positive, courageous, and productive results!



Personality Jazz: Creating Harmony at Work

Communication issues? No Problem! Team conflicts? Sure, but not terminal. Difficult people? Probably not difficult, just different!

Let’s Get To The Point:  simply acknowledging that we have different personalities and ways of working doesn’t make for better teams.  Our ability to get along, communicate, respect and compliment instead of competing, is the mix needed for healthy relationships — at work and at home. The strength of your team depends on their ability to appreciate and work with those many differences.


Personality Jazz takes you into the exciting realm of personal styles and reveals the secret of working in rhythm with others. You will discover a new understanding of personalities from the world of Jazz! Personality Jazz explores the core principles and outcomes of:

  • Listening to Each Other

  • Playing Off of Each Other’s Strengths

  • Working Out The Process

Meeting Planners: Your audience will have a refreshing perspective about the significance of their personal strengths, a new appreciation for the contribution of others, the reasons for interpersonal conflict, and how to get better results through intentional communication.  Steven is an exceptional facilitator and leads the group through a fast-paced personal assessment and group dialogue – culminating in quickly identified action plans that both individuals and groups can implement in their work environment.
