Tint Talk: 5 Ways to Conquer Change

September 3rd, 2019 by Emmariah Holcomb

Attendees listen to this year’s Tint Talk.

The opening day of the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™, taking place in Indianapolis, featured its annual tint talk discussion, which is modeled after the highly successful Ted Talks given around the world. Jim Black, Madico sales director for the Americas, focused on ways to conquer change.

“One might ask why I was chosen to speak at this year’s tint talk. I think it could be my years in experience or it could be the gray hair,” said Black.

When it comes to change we all have the opportunity to choose how we react to it, according to Black, who believes he thrives more off of positive change.

Throughout the talk he mentioned the importance and value of keeping an open mind when change, whether in your window film business or not, happens.

“We need to be open, flexible and embrace change. We all get caught up in our minds about what if, as in the bad things that could happen, but I encourage you to focus on the good things and stay diligent and focus on the end game. You’ll find you’re more successful that way,” said Black.

Positivity can also be beneficial when dealing with unexpected changes, as Black mentioned several times.

“When we look at change look, at how it can positively affect you. Throughout my career I’ve had opportunities for promotions on the corporate ladder. The more successful you become the higher risk you have, which can mean more pressure on you if things don’t go as planned. I think when we look at change we have to look at how we can really make it work for us. It’s difficult, but a needed part in the journey,” added Black.

The International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ continues through Friday. Stay tuned to windowfilmmag.com for coverage from the event.
