STRESS LESS: Find Balance and Avoid Burnout
Stress is part of life. But, we can learn how to recognize stress before it spirals out of control and to implement healthy strategies for managing it.
In Stress Less we’ll explore how to help yourself and others improve their mental well-being during times of stress so you can avoid burnout and return to being your best self.
FREE TO BE ME: Connecting WITH AUTHENTICITY
Beyond the masks you wear and roles you play, who are you?
When we know our authentic self, it’s easier to feel a sense of purpose. When we connect into our core values, it’s easier to feel comfortable and confident making decisions and finding direction. Your sense of aliveness at work and in life comes from your authenticity.
The Science of Happiness
Happiness leads to success, in life and in business. Happiness is not a lucky outcome that happens that occurs when life goes well. Rather, it’s a skill that can be learned. Using the science of positive psychology, you’ll walk away from this presentation feeling empowered to engage in happiness habits and perspectives to reprogram your brain … for the good.
The Power of Alignment
The most powerful people are the ones who have internal and external psychological alignment. If we are misaligned, we struggle with feeling stuck, unfulfilled, and frustrated. When we know who we are, what we value, the vision we hold for our lives, and the motivation to act in alignment with those things – we thrive. Our congruence ripples into life, work, and relationships creating extraordinary levels of happiness, health, and success. Come away from this presentation, with the confidence and vibrancy that comes from living in the power of alignment.
Embracing Self Compassion: BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND
While some people come by self-compassion naturally, others have to learn it. Luckily, it is a learnable skill. Self-compassion yields a number of benefits, including lower levels of anxiety and depression.
This workshop will provide self-compassion practices designed to work with difficult emotions, motivate oneself from a place of kindness rather than criticism, combat caregiver fatigue, and cultivate self-appreciation.
OVERCOMING OVERWHELM: BECOMING LASER FOCUSED
Overwhelm is real. The relentless pace of life and the always-on nature of the digital world has dropped our attention span down to just a few seconds.
A scattered mind negatively affects productivity, heath, and family stability.
In this workshop, we’ll explore practical tools for reducing overwhelm and becoming laser focused in work, and life, so you can reclaiming your ability to focus on what matters most.
WORTHY: ALREADY ENOUGH
What does it mean to move from I’m not good enough to I am enough?
How do we engage with ourselves, others, and the world from a place of healthy self-worth?
People who have a strong sense of self-worth feel confident in themselves and in their decisions. They have an inner security that can’t be rocked by the ups and downs of life.
In Self-Worth Essentials we will explore how to walk through the fear of not being good enough and to stand solidly in inherent worthiness.
UNSTUCK: transforming self-sabotage into self-mastery
Have you ever struggled with feeling like you’re fighting yourself?
Self-sabotage happens when there’s a battle between the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious levels of the mind.
Getting Unstuck is about deepening your self-awareness, clearing away sabotaging subconscious stories, and releasing unconscious fears that are limiting your potential so you can access your full power, confidence, and self-trust.
THE ART AND SCIENCE OF HABIT HACKING
Change your habits, change your life. The reality you are currently experiencing is a result of the habits you have had up to this point.
What you repeatedly do, think, and feels determines the person you become. The daily habits we engage in shape our teams, our societies, and ourselves.
In this talk, psychology expert Gemma Stone will share the science behind the power of habits. You’ll explore strategies to create good habits and break bad ones. With your habits aligned, you can look forward to being who you want to be and doing what you want to do.
Change Your Self-Talk, Change Your Life
The most important conversation you will ever have, is the one you have with yourself. Is your inner dialogue your strongest critic or greatest cheerleader? Ally or enemy? Limiting or empowering?
Your self-talk hurts or helps your mental, emotional, relational, vocational, and physical health. In this presentation, you will understand what self-talk is, where it comes from, and how to change it. Together, we will explore how you can enhance your overall well-being by improving the way you speak to yourself.
BETTER BOUNDARIES: WHEN TO SAY YES AND HOW TO SAY NO FOR a Healthier and happier life
Good boundaries build a great life. Without good boundaries we struggle with resentment, burnout, and overwhelm which negatively impacts our personal and professional life.
When your boundaries are anchored in your values, and delivered with clarity and confidence, you create the time and space for you to flourish and achieve your career goals and your life dreams.
In this presentation, you’ll learn perspectives and practices for learning how to establish and maintain healthy boundaries that allow you to thrive in work, life, and love.
THE POWER OF CHOICE: THE ART OF ALCHEMIZING NEGATIVE INTO POSITIVE
A steady stream of news about wars and civic unrest, impending ecological disasters, failing economies, and violent, sad local events induces stress. Excessive polarity fuels fear, anger, and divisiveness. Hard things are always happening, but we can lighten the load of negativity using the power of the mind.
In this workshop we will explore practices and perspectives for choosing a healthy relationship with our thoughts and feelings, so we can act in alignment with who we want to be and the world we want to live in.
