Keynote topics

  • Emotional Intelligence – Leaders or team members who are weak in Emotional Intelligence (EI) may rely on intellectual analysis for problem solving and miss important nuances. They are often confused about what drives them and surprised by the reactions of others.  Without EI we may be unaware of how our feelings are spreading to others and driving performance up or down.
  • The Advantages of Optimism—Change your thinking and win at work, love, and health! Optimists live longer, healthier, more successful lives – their marriages thrive, they get better grades in school, and they earn higher incomes! The good news is that optimism can be developed.
  • Engaging others, Engaging Ourselves: Factors in Motivation- Employee disengagement is a serious problem that may affect up to 80% of the nation’s workers. How do we remain enthused in our work? How do we inspire others? Exploring new research in cognitive science, emotional intelligence, and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we’ll examine our habits of thinking and motivation.
