What Team CH Can Do for You

 

On April 3, 2001, Chad was involved in a serious accident, leaving him a quadriplegic. But Chad’s dreams were not paralyzed that day; as you can see below, he’s kept himself busy:

 • He started Chad Hymas Communications, Inc., a professional speaking company designed to motivate businesses and corporations to “use their wings and reach seemingly impossible heights.”

• The Wall Street Journal calls Chad Hymas one of the 10 most inspirational people in the world! Click here and read the article where Chad was featured.

• At 37 years of age, Chad is the youngest person ever to receive the CPAE award and be inducted into the National Speaker Hall of Fame.

• Last year, Chad spoke at 220 different events, traveling just over 300,000 miles and speaking on five continents and in four countries.

• Chad has shared his personal message and entertained many audiences from organizations such as Wells Fargo, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Ford, IHC, Coca-Cola, and the Utah Jazz.

• He is a member of the National Speakers Association and is a CSP (certified speaking professional), a designation achieved by fewer than 8% in the speaking industry.

• He served as president of the National Speakers Association Utah chapter.

• Chad maintains his hobby and dream of managing a5100-acree elk preserve with his father, Kelly.

• He has raced in marathons and, in the summer of 2003, set a world record by wheeling his chair from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas (513 miles). Click Here to read more about this record-setting event.

• Chad participates in other wheelchair athletic competitions, including basketball, rugby, and officiating basketball (a dream come true).

• He spends many hours with other injured individuals in therapy, encouraging them to overcome their challenges, focus on dreams and make them a reality, and love life for all that it has to offer. To achieve the unachievable and to reach for the unreachable.

• Chad’s greatest accomplishment is that he remains a devoted husband to his loving wife, Shondell, and a proud father to their three children, Christian, Kyler, and Gracee! Click here to read more about Gracee.

“In the years that I have been in this organization, I have never seen a standing ovation given to one of our speakers. It’s tough to impress or to move this group and when I saw the spontaneous eruption of applause while everyone got to their feet, I knew I was seeing something very special.”

“Wow, what a powerful presentation! I had one of our powerful CEOs approach me and say, ‘I haven’t cried in 25 years, and I was balling like a baby.’ In my profession, I have the privilege of listening to and entertaining some of the best speakers around. You were the very best. Thank you for being a real-life hero.”

Chad Hymas
Each day of my rehabilitation, I gained confidence and ability. Having lost all strength in my stomach muscles, I found it nearly impossible to maintain my balance if I leaned to one side or the other. Sitting on a mat with my legs straight in front of me, I would attempt to raise my hands, first one inch, then two.Raising one arm ever so slightly was enough to topple me sideways. I hadn’t the strength to sit back up again on my own. I soon realized that my center was my trunk, my chest. If I maintained balance there, I could incrementally work at raising my arms. Soon, understanding this concept, I could raise both arms shoulder level.Interestingly enough, the chest is where the heart is. For me, it became a balance point. In life, it is the pivot point for us all.When we get off course in our lives, and we lean too far to one side, we lose our center. We lose our ability to be solid in our decision-making. It’s a tricky predicament in which to find ourselves; once leaning slightly, now falling, fast and hard. I found it is more difficult to get up after a fall like that, than it is to avoid it altogether. As the months and years have passed, my ability to stay centered and stay balanced has increased. Now I can lift my arms, turn myself to look at things, lean down on my knees to gesture, or move items on my lap. The key is knowing my center. As long as I remember this, I can pivot my movements, and balance and leverage my weight. I can accomplish the things I set out to do.Similarly, we must find our own personal center. In our busy lives, when we feel pushed and pulled in so many different directions, we must have a sense of center. Every question of action, every dilemma of circumstance, every request for our attention, must be assessed from that point.As leaders we look for individuals who are consistent, and who have an intentioned sense of balance. Centeredness is a priceless quality. Recognizing what is at a person’s core, especially what is at your own core, is invaluable.There is value in being centered, in being solid, and in knowing your personal boundaries. If you don’t know what is at your core, find out. Wrap your life around a moral compass that gives you direction for your true north.Your heart is your center. The more centered you are, the wider you can spread your wings. Strengthen those muscles! ... See MoreSee Less
