The following interactive keynotes are 20 to 75 minutes long and can be adapted into 30 to 90 minute seminars/webinars and half-day workshops.

Authentically YOU: Dare To Wear Pink Sneakers in a Beige World

Are you tired of letting fear stop you from speaking (and living) your truth? …tired of that relationship and/or career that leaves you feeling empty? …tired of feeling like you’ve lost yourself?

You can feel seen, heard and appreciated. You can go from hiding out to feeling empowered and joyful. But first, you need to release the hidden blocks that have prevented you from BEING YOURSELF so you can attract the career, the love—and the life—you so deserve.

You will learn:

What stops you from being authentic
The price you pay for not “speaking your 100% truth”
The 2 words you need to stop saying now, if you want to be true to yourself
How you can show up more authentically in your life

Why Time Won’t Heal You…and What Will

You can turn your suffering into freedom and joy. If you have ever experienced pain (through a breakup, betrayal or other loss), it’s likely that well-meaning friends have attempted to comfort you by saying, “Time heals all wounds.”

Unfortunately, not only is that not helpful, it’s also not true. Time—by itself—will not heal you. It’s what you do with the time that determines whether you will heal, or carry these wounds into your future life, and relationships.

You will learn:

Why time will not heal you…and what will
The question you need to stop asking yourself today if you want get unstuck
The 7 steps that will help you become Radically Resilient

How Get Kids to Listen and Cooperate: Connect!

If you are like most parents, you feel frustrated about your inability to get your child to listen and cooperate. When kids are not cooperating, simple tasks—like getting out the door or picking up the toys—can turn into upsetting conflicts that leave both you and your child feeling discouraged and disconnected.

You will learn:

Discover how meeting your child’s 4 core needs invites cooperation
Learn how to calm yourself (and your child) during an upset
Use simple steps to get your child to really listen
Leave with practical tools you can use right away to feel better about yourself as a parent

Why Kids Who Feel Better Behave Better: The Secret of Emotional Intelligence

In this program, you will learn the surprising life-long benefits to our children of emotionally intelligent parenting. Studies show that kids who are raised with emotionally intelligent parents are happier, healthier and do better in school. And…they behave better. When we are able to successfully navigate the sometimes tricky world of feelings, everything runs more smoothly and we feel more connected to our children.

You will learn:

What not to say to an upset child
How to diffuse strong emotions and help your child calm down fast
The “Top 10” most harmful things parents say to shut down feelings…and what to say instead
Why emotionally intelligent kids succeed in life
