Speaker Programs:

Emotions Rule: Why What We Feel Matters More Than What We Think
Decisions are based on emotions – not logic – and they guide the actions we take. We live our lives EMOTIONALLY. Thus they determine the quality and overall experience of our lives. We were taught how to read, write, etc. but we weren’t taught to live in this world emotionally. We CAN choose how we feel independently of circumstances. “Emotional Fitness” is to control how we feel; feeling good about oneself EVEN AS one is failing. Generation X’s and Millennials are the FIRST generations to be able to actually teach Emotional Fitness to their children. By gaining control over how we feel, we can control the quality of our experiences. Emotional Fitness will become increasingly critical to the overall quality of our life experience due to increased automation and advances in technology. It remains the most significant predictor of success in life.

 

From Ho-Hum to World-Class: Elevating Life To Greatness

When you get right down to it, everyone wants the same thing out of life: To feel satisfied and happy. In this inspiring and highly motivating presentation, participants will learn about the true concept of “happiness” and what it actually means. The fact is happiness is transient. But true contentment lasts a lifetime. Based on scientific principles in human psychology and her own personal journey in turning the quality of her own life around from a discontented 20-something marketing manager to a confident professional and entrepreneur in human behavior, Natasha Sharma will captivate your audience and help them learn the true secrets behind leading a world-class life. She is a powerful female voice of influence in this area. Topics covered include:

  • What nobody ever taught us in life
  • What we can learn ourselves in life
  • Causes of emotional distress and perceived unhappiness
  • How to change attitudes, perspectives, and thinking patterns to change emotion, motivation, and ultimately behavior
  • Top 4 negative thinking patterns that hold us back
  • 7 “deadly sins” of personal language, and how to overcome
  • 10 tips for falling in love with your career, life, and self

Passion Isn’t Enough: Bringing Meaning, Purpose, and Life-long Satisfaction To Your Career

The mantras of yesteryears advised us to “follow our passions” and “believe in yourself.” After all if you do that, anything is possible right? While not incorrect, that message is incomplete. Passion isn’t enough. In these transitional and highly disruptive economic times, we need more than that. We need to be savvy, and much more self-aware. Taking into account the unique and dynamic circumstances of people across generations (Millennials – stability seeking, Generation Xers- flexibility seeking, and Baby Boomers – pleasure seeking), Natasha will help participants learn powerful lessons on how to bring meaning, purpose, and satisfaction into their working lives. Topics covered include:

  • Finding your “Sweet Spot” – The 4 P’s of discovering your best work self
  • The big secret behind “Confidence”
  • Critical factors for career success and satisfaction
  • The importance of diversification in your career

Mental Health Is Everyone’s Business: De-stigmatizing And Taking Initiative In The Workplace

1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lifetime. And 5 out of 5 Canadians will be indirectly affected by mental health issues in their lifetime. Mental health difficulties account for 30% of short and long-term disability claims in the workplace, and are the root of almost 50% of approved disability claims. In total, they account for over $50 billion in annual costs, $20 billion of which is due to lost productivity in the workplace. Not to mention the significant personal impact to individuals and society as a whole. Clearly, mental health is everyone’s business. In this dynamic, high content, and extremely valuable presentation, Natasha will help participants understand the current and alarming facts regarding mental health in the workplace, and how companies can prevent, support, and ultimately best cope with workplace mental health concerns. People at all levels can benefit from this presentation: Leaders, executives, managers, employees, and administrators. Topics covered include:

  • Mental Health Issues vs. Mental Illness (Yes, there is a difference)
  • Are we all getting sicker? (What is behind the rise in mental illness)
  • Critical factors that undermine employee wellness
  • Tackling mental health stigma in the workplace
  • What people/organizations can do to promote health/wellness in the workplace
