Speaking and Training




We provide full service resilience assessments, workshops, and app-based coaching for organizations seeking to create a more humanized and healthier workplace, as well as to strengthen highly achieving individuals and teams.

Stress, challenge, and change are unavoidable in both personal and professional lives. Left unchecked, toxic stress shows up in the workplace as:

  • Anxiety/depression
  • Burnout
  • Addiction
  • Absenteeism
  • Team dysfunction
  • Low morale
  • Low productivity
  • Hostile work environments
  • Negligence/malpractice

Cultivating resilience serves as an inoculation against toxic stress that impacts professionals and the teams in which they work. While resilience can be developed at any time, cultivating resilience is most impactful as a proactive measure.


We conduct half- and full-day workshops, incorporating a resilience assessment for all participants. The assessment covers six different domains of resilience, providing both individual and group scores. Participants identify their specific strength/growth areas and leaders identify overall trends in the resilience health of their organization. Participants engage in interactive experiences using various learning modalities that address different learning styles. Each participant gains tactical tools to immediately improve different domains of resilience, as well as develop strategies for life-long resilience growth.


Workshops may be combined with consulting and coaching. We work closely with leaders and participants over a six month period to cultivate growth in domain areas identified as priorities. This is done through:

  • Regularly scheduled individual and group coaching
  • Daily skill building through an app-based coaching platform
  • Organizational re-assessment at the conclusion of the period
  • Access to the coaching app for an additional six months for self-paced skills development


  • On-boarding new associates
  • Newly formed teams/divisions
  • Management training programs
  • Organizational restructuring, mergers, large-scale organizational change
  • Crisis recovery
  • Underperforming/dysfunctional teams

Additional Keynote Presentations


  • 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.
  • 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 Pollyannas and gratitude gurus.
    • Length: 15 minute “TED-style” talk to one hour keynote.
