"As any single, full time working mother knows (or really anyone, in this day and time), priority management is a big deal. The hour was not long enough.
The workshop was fun and energetic...I learned that it truly does not take more than a matter of minutes to slow down, refocus and ultimately become more productive from this exercise in meditation.
I walked away re-energized, with a greater sense of self and focus."
Director of Marketing
Business workshop speaking is also a wonderful way to powerfully communicate the mission and vision of your company or organization.

Transition, It's Not a Pretty Sight: Navigating Change In Challenging Times
Change is occurring at record speed and affecting people on a profound level, both personally and professionally. Whether your company is being restructured, your current moped budget is colliding with your former jet-set lifestyle, or your empty nest is prompting re-evaluation; change plays a big part in the equation.
One thing is for sure: transition brings both challenges and opportunities. The challenges can include; heightened stress, chronic health issues, low productivity and poor teamwork. But the opportunities transitions present are limitless. These benefits can include: innovative ways of doing business, new partnerships, stronger relationships, and separating out the wheat from the chaff.

Bloated at the Banquet of Life: Savvy Solutions for Moving from Stress to Success
Have you ever gone to a buffet only to find that by the time you put your fourth or fifth selection on the plate, it all starts to meld together and by the second trip, you're so saturated, all you want to do is go to sleep?
Metaphorically, that is what's happening on a global level. We fill our lives with activities, commitments and a " to-do" list that rivals the heft of the Yellow Pages. As a culture, we are over-stimulated, busying ourselves out of our authentic life experience. The price we pay is feeling stuffed but not full-filled. As a result we become overwhelmed, experiencing burnout, health issues and low productivity. In this upbeat and highly interactive presentation/workshop, we lampoon the "more is still not enough" concept that rules most of our lives.
We will look at Five Power Principles that will help you to move from stress to success by shifting your perspective, as well as creative ways to bring simplicity and scintillation into your life. You will learn how to quit the BMW (Bitch Moan Whine) Club, how to deal with the "Itty Bitty Committee" (the sabotaging self-talk that always rants that you're not doing enough), as well as practical solutions for priority setting and creating a more balanced life.
Participants will gain an understanding of:
The mind/body connection and how it effects you
How to create and maintain priorities and focus
How to let go of distractions and "drainers" that keep us stressed
Practical, easy-to-apply self-care techniques that leave you energized
From Procrastination to Productivity: Five Power Principles to Get You Moving
Procrastination is one of the most misunderstood challenges with which we struggle. The impact is massive, and the price both individuals, companies and organizations pay is exorbitant; from health-related costs, to poor performance and low self-esteem, career sabotage to strained personal and professional relationships.
In "Procrastination to Productivity," we learn to see procrastination as a vital messenger that guides us to not only learn about ourselves, but to learn the types of tools and support we need to move forward in a powerfully engaged way. Ignoring procrastination's message, results in "doing the same thing and expecting a different result" (Sigmund Freud's definition of insanity!). This program is ideal for organizations in transition, as well as entrepreneurs and working moms.
Participants will learn:
To use your unique personality and learning style to move forward
To navigate learning curves with greater ease and energy
To stop beating yourself up and start focusing
How to stay engaged, establish a plan of action and create a power team
How to overcome one's DNA for dizzy distractions
