Transforming Leadership Models

Mindful leadership as a mindset in action.

A mindful leader has the ability to translate their values into actions and engage a group of people to collectively move in the same direction. They lead by example and inspire those around them to maximize their engagement, motivation, and overall success.  While there are many approaches to leadership, ultimately it’s the mindful leader that drives the most impactful results. In this talk, I will outline the benefits of leading mindfully and the advantages of inclusive and diverse company cultures, revealing a practical system for becoming a true leader of leaders.

Adding Diversity to Leadership Models

How to be a force of positive influence amidst dated leadership models.

The current model of leadership, especially within fast-growing startups, is broken. Companies and individual leaders are steeped in outdated operations, “bro culture” and non-inclusive attitudes. This affects everything from employee morale to the bottom line.  In this talk, I will discuss effective leadership methods that inspire CEOs, executive, and those around them to maximize engagement, motivation, and overall success. I will outline the advantages of inclusive and diverse company cultures, revealing a practical system for becoming a true leader of leaders.

Future of Work

How the rise of technology is changing the way we live and lead.

We are in the midst of a momentous transformation in the way we work. Advances in technology, automation, and remote workforces are disrupting the status quo and redefining how we live. The rise of the freelance economy and decentralized teams is giving us new opportunities to rethink labor laws, work benefits, emotional wellbeing, and mindfulness at work. It is expected that within 10 years, freelancers will constitute a majority of the US workforce, and recent research in behavioral psychology has found that nontraditional work environments can significantly increase productivity and employee wellbeing. By prioritizing emotional safety, resilience and compassion in the workplace, we now have the opportunity to co-work with friends, live with co-workers, and collaborate across different verticals.

In this talk, I’ll discuss how these factors interplay to drive change, break through barriers, and cross-cultural divides. The future of work is also a real opportunity to change legislation, labor laws, and evaluate the systemic issues that frequently push women out of the workforce (or prevent them from accelerating).

THE ART OF FAILING FORWARD

Mindset practices to get you to where you want to be.

The path to success is paved with bricks of failure. Every successful person will tell you how mistakes (and sometimes even colossal failures) are inevitable in the pursuit of growth, progress, and pushing the envelope.  Learning how to navigate the emotional landscape of this journey without letting fear rule the decision-making process is a key stepping stone to achievement. In this talk, I will share my personal experiences, and the principles and psychological enablers that ensure my success. I will discuss the mindsets and skill sets necessary to stay highly motivated, maintain momentum and truly thrive.

HEALTHY HABITS: THE KEY TO GROWING YOUR BUSINESS

How to leverage healthy habits and psychological enablers for success.

In this 24/7 world, it’s become almost impossible to avoid burnout, especially for CEOs and executives. It is very common to get stuck in overwhelm or live in a state of perpetual exhaustion in order to meet company goals. It’s easy to neglect personal well-being even though it’s inextricably linked to long-term/sustainable success. In this talk, I will explore how to build resources we can draw upon in times of heightened stress to increase performance, productivity, and motivation. Understanding the connection between our body, mind,  and lifestyle choices is key to self-leadership and the leadership of others.
