Speaking and Training


  • Growing Your Personal Resilience

    • Using the theories of Positive Psychology and Narrative Therapy as well as a healthy dose of humor, dialogue and group interaction, this workshop is designed to illustrate the concept of resilience, how it impacts all aspects of a person’s life and simple, yet impactful, daily ways to build one’s own resiliency.
    • Length: Half day and whole day workshops
  • Growing Your Personal Resilience: Helpers Edition

    • Targeted specifically for direct service providers and first responders, this workshop focuses on ways build resiliency in order to combat vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue. Built on the same principles and framework as the personal resiliency workshop, this training includes special considerations and focus areas for the unique challenges of direct providers.
    • Length: Half day and whole day workshops
  • Growing Your Organizational Resilience

    • Designed for leaders and managers, this workshop illustrates how resilient teams impact an organization’s health, culture, mission and bottom line. It is created to teach leaders how to identify resilience in their team members, as well as how to help each member grow in their own resilience. We will also discuss how to create a culture of resilience at an organizational level through leadership development.
    • Length: Half day or whole day workshops. Can be combined with one of the workshops above to create a two-day workshop.


  • Splashing Around the Messy Middle: This keynote is all about learning to accept and embrace the messy struggle of our challenges. Whether we face them in our personal or professional lives, the messy middle is the breeding ground for growth and resilience.
    • Length: 15 minute “TED-style” talk to one hour keynote.
  • A Non-Pollyanna’s Guide to Optimism and Gratitude: We know (because we keep being told) that the path to emotional well-being is rooted in optimism and gratitude. Some of us, however (ahem…I’m looking at you, Eeyore), don’t quite come across that naturally. And even the most Pollyanna amongst us sometimes feel the strain of the perma-smile as we try to continue to see the silver lining. This humorous look at how we can experience authentic optimism and gratitude is ideal for the skeptics and the Negative Nellies, as well as the Pollyanna’s and gratitude gurus.
    • Length: 15 minute “TED-style” talk to one hour keynote.
  • Growing Your Resilience: Based on the workshops above, this keynote is designed to illustrate the meaning and importance of resiliency. It also challenges the group to reflect and inquire about how they can develop their own resiliency.
    • Length: 30 minutes to one hour keynote.
