avoid the resilience trap

  • Strategies for Strength and Success During Tough Times

    These days, we hear a lot of talk about “building resilience” or “being resilient”. But what exactly does that mean and why does it seem so darn difficult and daunting to do!?

    That’s because resilience isn’t something you “will” into existence. It doesn’t involve “digging deep” and “sucking it up” for eternity to show how “tough” you are. Resilience is a process and journey that involves a combination of mindset, simple, yet highly powerful personal habits, a support network, and a deep look inward.

    The good news is, it’s quite simple and anyone can do it when they follow 5 simple “Resilience Rules”. In this session, we discuss the definitions of resilience, grit, and mindset, while looking at the science behind the 5 Resilience Rules.

    You Will Learn:

    • The difference between stress, burnout, resilience, grit, and mindset…and how they are related.
    • How to get back on track quickly when life throws you an unexpected cur

the death of corporate wellness & the future of high performing workplaces

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Great news…Corporate wellness has been a colossal failure! Billions are being wasted on ineffective programs and people are more stressed and unhealthier than ever.

    There is a proven path to accomplishing these objectives. The cost is low, the return is massive, and it starts by simply reframing our perspective on wellness and its place in any organization.

if sitting is the new smoking...movement is the new medicine

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • What the future of work means for your health, happiness, and energy in work and life.

    We sit more today than at any time in history…and it’s destroying our health, happiness, and ability to perform at work and in life. Luckily, there’s a better way to live and work. One that honors our body, work realities, and goals.

    Would you like to have more energy each day? Leave work feeling great? Have more motivation and enthusiasm to enjoy your evening? The solution is simple – learn to harness movement in your life! Nope…it’s not what you are thinking. The solution has nothing to do with workouts, fitness classes, or going to the gym. InThoseften end up being counterproductive and even dangerous!

    Using movement and activity effectively fosters increased productivity, happiness, creativity, and ultimately, greater success in all aspects of your life. Smart people (and organizations) are creating “a movement around movement”, and the outcomes are exceptional.

    Forget the fancy equipment, and watered-down wellness initiatives. Creating change should be simple, effective, meaningful and quick to start. This session provides the framework for success that each employee (and organization) can use to transform workplace health, happiness, and performance, by simply moving…the correct way.

    You Will Learn to:

    • Use movement to be more focused, productive, and effective.
    • Master simple daily movements to boost energy, reduce injury, and help you feel great.
    • Manage your personal movement strategy for better energy, health, and performance at home and the office.

  • The science and strategy behind reaching and exceeding the most important objectives in your life.

    Who will benefit from this session:

    • People who are stressed, frustrated, burned out, and need a “reset”

    Goal setting seems simple, so why do so many goals fail? The answer is a combination of the goal itself, how your brain perceives that goal, and what you do after you set it.

    This session is dedicated to showing you that goal setting can be one of the most powerful forces in your life…when it’s done well. We will discuss:

    • Your mindset and perception of goal setting…and why that often holds people back.
    • The important TYPES and STRUCTURE of Goals.
    • How these types of goals can be used to create and build positive habits in your life.
