Transforming Leadership Models

What we can do to be a force of positive influence in 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 Companies and individual leaders are steeped in outdated operations, “bro culture” and non-inclusive attitudes.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. While there are all types of leaders:  inspired leaders,  fear-based leaders; empathetic leaders; community-driven leaders; results-driven leaders; wartime leaders and peacetime CEOs – it’s the mindful leader that drives the most impactful results. In this talk, I will demystify mindful leadership and the advantages of an inclusive and diverse culture, revealing a simple, practical system for becoming a true leader of leaders.

The Art of Failing forward

A talk about dealing with fear, shame, and Failure on the path to success.

The path to success is paved with bricks of failure. Learning how to navigate the emotional landscape of the entrepreneurial journey without letting fear and shame rule the decision-making process is the key stepping stone to achievement.  Every successful person will tell you how mistakes and sometimes even colossal failures are inevitable if we are to continue to push the envelope, learn, grow and innovate. In this talk, I will share my personal experiences, what I learn from failure, how I embraced the shame and dealt with fear. I will discuss the importance of mental health, skill sets one can acquire and mindsets necessary to stay motivated, become truly resilient- and thrive.

Wellness: The Key to Growth

How to leverage healthy habits and psychological enablers for success.

In this 24/7 world, it’s become almost impossible to avoid burn out, especially for entrepreneurs, leaders, and innovators. I know because I’ve been there many times: overwhelmed, exhausted, and disillusioned. Building new ventures and chasing passion turned on me when I lost focus on how well-being is 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. Understanding the connection between our mind, body, emotion and the effects of the type of nourishment, attitudes and lifestyle choices we choose is key to self-leadership.

The Secret to being a Nomad

How to practice freedom as a discipline in this increasingly fluid world.

In this increasingly fluid world, finding a tribe with whom you can truly connect is more important than ever. Technology has afforded more and more people the freedom to travel, live and work globally. In this talk, I share 6 essentials for dynamic living, a successful remote lifestyle, and staying connected with who you are. Studies in behavioral psychology show that we are more likely to succeed if we are in favorable environments that support our efforts. I will share my personal adventures, what it took to prioritized my need for personal freedom and how I build a business aligned with my personal values to drive the impact and change I want to see in this world. I will share what I’ve learned from living and working on the road for more than 17 years, how I practice freedom as a discipline and why this keeps me feeling inspired and fulfilled.
