Sample Speaking Topics
The NEW Science of Motivation
Leveraging the hidden link between peak health and high performance
Research reports that 73% of people are disengaged at work, and 60% of the U.S. population has at least one chronic disease; interestingly enough studies also reveal that over 80% of people can’t accurately predict what motivates them. In our personal lives and organizational settings, disengagement or “performance gaps” show up as chaos, indecision, conflict, miscommunication, and unmet goals. Yet, beyond performance an even more insidious issue is lurking; that chronic demotivation causes disease, resulting in absenteeism, loss of work, escalating health care costs, and poor quality of life.
Motivation by definition is our “reason for moving”, which infers the powerful combination of both purpose and energy. Clear purpose is an obvious ingredient in high performance and vibrant energy clearly equates to both high performance and peak states of health. Each individual has a unique combination of motivational drivers that can be quantitatively measured, revealing exactly why certain actions suck energy away, causing illness, and others make us feel supercharged, creating natural wellness and productivity. Uncommon leaders understand that high performance, peak health, and exceptional productivity are intricately linked and have little to do with working harder, but are rather the natural by- products of being aligned with one’s internal motivational drivers.
There is a science to motivation. In business, the days of externally focused “carrot driven” motivation are gone while with todays speed of change, technology demands, and consumer influence it is imperative that leaders know exactly what internally motivates themselves and their teams at the core. With this rare understanding leaders will know precisely how to stimulate their teams (and their own) inherent motivational drivers resulting in consistently high performance, peak states of health, and exceptional productivity.
Following this talk participants will be able to:
- Identify the three primary motivational clusters that instinctively drive high performance behaviors
- Describe how our inherent motivators align or conflict with others causing frustration, indecision, and disease.
- Ask the three key questions that dissolve inner resistance and naturally supercharge positive action.
Audience Value: Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of their own and other people’s inherent motivational drivers as well as how to use this knowledge to enhance positive communication, stimulate productive action, and create exceedingly healthy workplace cultures.
The Stress Revolution
How to systematically leverage stress into possibilities for profound growth, emotional resilience, and authentic self-leadership.
A 2014 Career Builder survey of 3,211 US workers revealed that overall 60% of employees report stress in their current jobs, with workers in the health care sector reporting and an even higher 69% and professional and business services 64%.
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 contagion of stress negatively impacts individual and team performance, customer care, ability to innovate, health insurance costs, and most certainly the financial bottom line.
Typical stress management strategies like vacation, exercise, yoga, and meditation while helpful are simply tools to release the pressure, however a permanent shift requires thinking from a whole NEW paradigm; that stress isn’t the enemy, it’s a gateway and our most accurate feedback system for conscious growth and success.
While uncontrolled stress causes illness, disease, and pain, understanding the science of leveraging stress provides a pathway for greater authenticity, motivation, productivity, and consistent peace of mind.
Following this talk participants will be able to:
- Explain the science of stress; what it is, how we self-create it, and its affect on our physiology.
- Describe how to leverage both thoughts and emotions to reveal and transform the root causes of stress.
- Perform the 3 step Stress Revolution process to rapidly shift from overwhelm, to states of profound motivation and productivity.
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.
Overcoming Resistance to Change
The Science of Using Sensation-Based Methods in Coaching
Great coaches always focus on making a bigger impact. Whether you are a veteran coach, 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, coaches are stymied by a lack of client commitment, distractibility, procrastination, tunnel vision, communication issues, and even distressing physical symptoms; in a word, resistance. Subconscious resistance to change can take many forms, however unique to the individual typically presents as a repeated pattern with a specific sensory component, which acts as the resistance pattern’s “foundation”. Identifying and deconstructing this core sensory pattern is a critical and powerful first step in elevating emotional intelligence, adopting new perceptions, and promoting the acceptance of creative solutions. Rather than engaging the core sensory pattern, most coaches try to mistakenly rationalize through their client’s resistance resulting in further disengagement and possibly loss of trust.
Through dynamic lecture presented with practical examples, metaphors, and story-telling participants will remember and be talking about this session long after it’s done. Engaging power point and live easel diagraming offers tangible visual cues while guided experiential and paired practice ensures successful follow up with practical applications for both themselves and clients. Woven through this session are tools to fully embody grounded coaching presence and develop the capacity to ask deeper and more powerful sensation-based questions in eliciting aligned insight and effective action.
Filled with the study of cutting-edge brain science, mindfulness, and bioenergetics, in this session you will learn the physiologic basis of subconscious resistance, its effect on your actions and decision making, as well as clinically tested sensation-based coaching methods for quickly identifying and re-patterning persistent negative behaviors; resulting in higher levels of commitment, energy, insight, and client impact.
Following this presentation participants will be able to:
- Describe basic sensation-based, bioenergetic concepts and their relationship to emotional intelligence.
- Identify 3 primary neurologically based subconscious defenses that create resistance to coaching and positive behavior change
- Apply sensation-based mindset strategies to quickly reveal and re-pattern persistent limiting beliefs in order to promote consistent positive action.
Audience Value: Participants will leave this session with revelatory insights regarding the physiologic source of patterned resistance and practical, sensation-based methods to quickly identify and re-pattern persistent, hidden core limiting beliefs.
