Sample Speaking Topics

Overcoming Resistance to Change

Applying the science of somatic coaching for sustainable motivation

Great therapists, coaches, and leaders always focus on making a bigger impact. Whether you are an experienced professional, just beginning, or somewhere in between, we all want full engagement from and massive outcomes for our clients. Yet more often than we’d like to admit, we are stymied by a lack of client commitment, distractibility, procrastination, tunnel vision, communication issues, and even distressing physical symptoms; essentially, resistance to change.

At present, motivation in therapy, coaching, or leadership means persuading or inspiring other people, which are all things that we do “for” another person.  As useful as these skills may be, they aren’t sustainable.  True motivation isn’t something that you can give someone else, it’s something that you guide a person to discover within themselves.

Filled with the study of cutting-edge neuroscience, in this session, you will learn the physiological basis of subconscious resistance, its effect on your actions and decision making, as well as clinically tested somatic coaching methods for quickly guiding others to the source of their own persistent negative behaviors; all of this resulting in higher levels of commitment, energy, insight, and client motivation.

Following this presentation participants will be able to:

  • Describe how the subconscious mind is programmed into the physical body
  • Identify the three primary subconscious defenses that create resistance to change
  • Ask three somatic-based questions that quickly reveal persistent limiting beliefs and promote sustainable motivation.
Audience Value: Participants will leave this session with revelatory insights regarding the physiologic source of patterned resistance and practical, somatic methods to quickly identify persistent, hidden core limiting beliefs.

Mental Wellness Is Easier Than You Think

A systematic approach to short-circuiting the body’s stress response that creates mental fatigue, disengagement, and resistance to change.

The Harvard Business Review reports that 89% of employees say that their work lives are getting worse and 85% report that their well-being has declined.  According to a recent survey conducted by the Global Leadership Forecast, 86% of high-potential employees feel “used up” at the end of the workday, 66% of Human Resources professionals feel the same and about 44% of those leaders are considering changing companies. The Stress and mental wellness crisis aren’t coming sometime off in the future, it is here NOW. 

Higher and uncontrolled rates of workplace stress have been definitively linked to substantially higher rates of heart disease, back pain, cancer, injuries, infections, mental health issues, substance abuse, and relationship conflicts.  Organizationally the infectious nature of stress negatively impacts individual and team performance, customer care, ability to innovate, health insurance costs, and most certainly the financial bottom line.

While rational stress reduction actions like flex-time, work from home, and counseling services are extremely valuable, their positive results take time; after all, stress isn’t rational it’s physiological. Yoga and mindfulness classes are also excellent tools, however, because they tend to focus on “separating” from work their positive effects are lost quickly when returning to work.  What is needed now is a proven, systemized approach to quickly short circuiting the stress response where it lives, in the body, and then supporting that shift with simple tools guaranteed to enhance motivation and engagement.

Following this talk participants will be able to:

  • Explain the links between our bodies stress responses and strengthening mental wellness
  • Identify the number one mistake leaders and colleagues make that fuels stress
  • Perform the 3 step process for rapidly shifting people from overwhelm to motivation and focus

Audience Value: Participants will leave this presentation and immediately understand the deeper cause of their stress, its influences on others, and how to quickly and consistently shift into highly productive states of creativity and innovation.
