The Sweet Spot: How to Find Your Groove at Work & Home
Christine Carter will transform your organization by changing how people think about happiness, productivity and fulfilling their own potential.
This talk is a multi-media crash course in the neuroscience behind happiness, productivity, creativity and success. Participants learn how and why stress reduces productivity in organizations and several — surprisingly easy and shockingly impactful — ways to reduce feelings of overwhelm and increase a sense of balance.
Although this talk is most popular as a keynote speech for large audiences, Dr. Carter has also created full and half-day trainings so that organizations can dive more deeply into the principles and practices she teaches. Participants leave with simple but powerful tools for becoming more innovative, productive and joyful both at work and at home.
Resiliency Through Change: Leadership Essentials
What do resilient people have that others don’t? What makes some people fear failure and hide their mistakes, while others embrace their blunders as opportunities to learn and do better the next time? New social science and brain research shows us how we can live and work from our “sweet spot” — that place of both power and ease.
Dr. Carter will transform the way you think about stress, adversity and busyness. In this program she shares three simple practices for fostering resilience — all rooted in the latest scientific research. She’ll discuss:
- A one-minute technique to become a creative and energetic problem-solver in the midst of a stressful day, week, or year.
- Why our beliefs about why we are successful (or not) predict how well we fare in the face of adversity.
- A simple but counter-intutitive technique that will make you feel more connected, powerful, productive, successful, and happy.
How To Be Courageous
What do courageous people have that timid people don’t? What makes one person brave adversity, while others give up? New social science and brain research indicates that courage is better thought of as a skill anyone can develop than an in-born personality trait.
Dr. Carter will transform the way you think about change and adversity. In this program she shares three simple (but not always easy) practices for facing fear with courage, inspiration and grit–rooted in the latest scientific research. She’ll discuss:
- The relationship between grit, courage, heroism and vulnerability. (Hint: It’s a big fat myth that vulnerability = weakness.)
- Why what we believe about our own talent predicts how well we fare in the face of adversity–and why you might want to change your beliefs.
- How to recover from mistakes and setbacks in a way that will make you more powerful, productive, successful and happy than before.
