WAKE UP to What Really Matters at Work – and Home!
How to change attitudes, behaviors and outcomes – in a heartbeat

This presentation is about changing our perceptions which transforms how we behave and feel. Full of laughter, interaction, symbols and specific strategies to improve 2 key areas of emotional intelligence – self-knowledge and self-management – it makes people feel good about themselves and transforms their thinking and attitudes.

WAKE UP to the Link between Feelings and Success –
How to make others feel good – in a heartbeat.

In this presentation, Amanda teaches people how to bring out the best in others and make them feel good. People always remember how you made them feel. Working with the latest science from positive psychology and epigenetics, people learn how to motivate and encourage others; be authentic, humble and work collaboratively; program themselves for excellence; unlock the secrets and power of non-verbal communication; and build strong, positive relationships.

WAKE UP to The Spirit of Leadership-
How to engage people in a heartbeat

If you want to change an organization, you have to lead with a Change of Heart – a Change of Spirit. The spirit in which we do anything determines the outcome, whether positive or negative. People are no longer a company’s most important asset; the spirit in which they do things is! People with a positive spirit are inspired, motivated, excited about what they do, and create strong, lasting relationships. This keynote radically affects the group dynamics – it breaks down barriers so that learning, networking and connection continue not only during the meeting, but for the long term.

WAKE UP to Profitable Joy! –
How to bust stress, eradicate fear and build morale – in a heartbeat.

Change and stress go hand in hand. Learning about how the brain actually can and does change (neuroplasticity); that adults learn more quickly than children; and that our brains need change to stay vibrant and alert transforms the way people perceive change. This means instead of being a stressor – change can be welcomed as an opportunity to grow and develop – and live, fully alive, longer! This is a fun session designed to address today’s tough economic climate; put things in perspective and have people refocus on what’s important.

WAKE UP to What Makes Relationships Work – at Work-
How to bridge the gender gap in a heartbeat. (or Brain Sex!)

Yes, men and women are from different planets, but a slight shift in perception is all it takes to have them understanding, appreciating and admiring each other for unique talents. This session can be related to sales, customer service, negotiating, call centers, business relationships, or personal relationships and can focus on gender differences or not!
