Each keynote is tailored to the needs of the audience and can be customized into a live workshop or virtual session of your choosing.
Did you know that only 10% of people are currently in their childhood dream job? Why? Things change. Plan B (and sometimes Plan C, D, and E) take over. Change does not have to be scary, disappointing, or avoided…it can be embraced, sought after, and even a blessing. If you know how you (and even an entire organization) subconsciously respond to change, you can begin the process of making change work in your favor, even the unpredicted changes. Whether it is a personal change, professional change, or a wide-scale organizational change, learn how to thrive and be your best self during change.
We have all heard the Maya Angelou phrase, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.” We tend to listen more with our eyes (watching behaviors) than with our ears (listening to words). Behaviors send powerful messages. They are the key to how we communicate with others and how others interpret who we are and our intentions. Why does it seem so hard to change our behaviors? Based on her research and book on how changing your thoughts and behaviors can change your life, Dr. Chris plunges into the new science of the brain (neuroplasticity), the mind/body connection, and role our past conditioning plays into how we behave.
We live in a society where power interplays are commonplace. Power isn’t just about having control over a person or situation – power is the energy, self-esteem, knowledge, and compassion we bring to every interaction we have in our lives. Power is wrapped up in our choices, behaviors, and thinking. Power is not what you think it is. Dr. Chris flips the idea of power on its head, revealing how you can master thoughts, emotions, and responses to the power-plays that show up in your life.
Female to female hostility has existed throughout the ages. Men call them “catfights” … but to women they are simply a bad interaction with another woman. The #Metoo movement has shed light on unacceptable interactions between men and women. Now, it is time to address the “pink” elephant in the room…why on one hand, women walk to the edge of the earth and back for another woman, and then on the other hand, actively undermine and not support their female colleagues? Based upon her research on women at work and the interactions between the genders in the post-#Metoo era, Dr. Chris will dive into the uncharted (and sometimes controversial) waters of why women sometimes cannot “play nice.”
