From Burnout To Joy

The last two years has taken its toll on everyone! Bathed in uncertainty about EVERYTHING, our physical, mental, emotion and spiritual wellbeing has been seriously impacted. Many of us are living with fear, unmotivated, anxious, stressed and feeling burnt out. 

This keynote or training is geared around the new skills required to rise up out of the exhaustion and fear and rediscover the joy of living. Simple, easy to do activities and ways to change our mindsets and perceptions will help your team build resilience and leave them with an inner compass! This inner compass will be the way people can navigate their way back to feeling energised and enthusiastic about life again.

Our inner compass can help us:
• Re-calibrate relationships and re-imagine joy
• Re-energise and re-align your team
• Re-inspire, re-focus and re-store meaning
• Re-ignite confidence and enthusiasm
• Reconnect hearts - virtually and physically
• Stay sane and even thrive while navigating an uncertain future

We have never experienced a time like this before. Mental health issues are skyrocketing. Fear and uncertainty are undermining people's health, work and relationships - We are re-examining what JOY (and living) actually looks and feels like - and what really matters to us.

Now, more than ever, we need to re-consider everything that is going on and educate people about different perspectives and give them the skills to deal with the 'uncertain and constantly changing new normal’. And also to give them a good laugh! Which in itself changes physiology.

To keep teams connected, motivated and maintaining a sense of purpose and belonging is challenging in good times when everyone is physically present. 

It's a whole new world working these days, returning to work, hybrid offices, work life balance, burnout, juggling children and working from home and being disconnected physically from others. 

I designed this material to address all the above issues and re-store some sense of control in people no matter where they are. And to establish the deep connections people are craving.

This whole experience can be seen as a time of devastation and depression - or it can be seen as an opportunity to do many things that can make positive changes in our lives, and the choice is ours. This keynote gives you the tools and mindset to choose wisely.

Other Aspects Amanda Can Incorporate…

  • Re-activate our full human potential and our humanity
  • To fill us with life force
  • To fully engage in life and living
  • To re-create the life we really want
  • To re-engage us with our passion, meaning and purpose at work
  • The choice is ours. This keynote gives you the tools and mindset to choose wisely

The Joy of Mindsets – 3 Must Have Skills for Change

You are not your mindset - but your mindset creates your life.

Understanding mindsets and mindfulness literally changes your brain and improves performance, leadership, decision making, creativity; reduces anxiety, stress, depression and reactivity; they increase energy, well-being and makes you happier. This session will show you simple ways to stop being mindless, be more present, more effective - and more joyful.

Being mindful is ‘waking up’ - about becoming more conscious - and living more consciously - which is one of Amanda's core themes. Most of us are running on habits and patterns of thinking from our past! We don’t even know those patterns are subconsciously programming our present.

Think driving a car. How mindful were you in your first few lessons? Now, how often do you arrive home and you don’t even know how you got there - yet you were driving the car! This is a common theme with anything we learn - we are mindful in the beginning and then we become mindless.

The difference between a growth mindset and a fixed one is the difference between a joyful life and a stressed, unhappy one; between a joyful team and a dysfunctional one; a great culture or a toxic one.

Here are 3 things you can do to be mindful, not mindless:

1. Observe your thinking

2. Question rather than assume

3. Reframe and find gratitude.

This is one of the practical skills discussed - Observe your ‘mind state’ all day today - with the goal in mind of becoming aware every time you are mindless! Every time you are not present. Every time you are trapped in a pattern of thinking from the past that creates fear. Then STOP - OBSERVE - QUESTION to become mindful again. Be the one who is mindful of their mindset!

The Power of Joy – How Joy Changes Cultures and Performance

You were born with the capacity for joy! Science shows us that by the time you were 7, your pure ‘operating system’ of love and joy was infected with viruses, malware, apps and other people’s programs! Joy at work boosts sales by 37%, increases productivity 31%, reduces errors 18%, burnout 125% and boosts chances of promotion 40%. Joy matters.

Your brain can be rewired for joy. This session teaches you how. It includes how to stop stress killing you; how to be resilient; how to be your best version; how to re- focus on what matters and take responsibility for your choices and behaviour.

Everything in business is about feelings. Trust, empathy, confidence, cooperation, collaboration, leadership, responses to change - these are just some of the elements (feelings) that create a great culture and team.

This keynote is aimed at helping people feel good about themselves - which changes the way they interact with everyone else - colleagues, clients and family.

Amanda presents profound concepts, in an entertaining way that:

  • Changes people's perceptions of themselves and others
  • Engages and energizes
  • Gives them specific strategies to bust stress, lead more effectively, fear less, deal with change and collaborate effectively.

Amanda will cover the latest new sciences of stress, epigenetics, emotional intelligence and neuroscience - which will not only show you how to reduce the impact of stress, but also how to change your reactions to it permanently.

Did you know that what people believe about stress or stressful situations is the 15th biggest killer of humans in the USA?  But it is potentially a source of great resilience, productivity, engagement and courage when handled correctly. It's time to get real about what is really causing our stress.

The Joy Formula – 7 Ways to Build Resilience and Restore Work Life Balance – It is Possible

As you may have read above, new research shows us what we believe about stress decides if our bodies react negatively or not.

Our perceptions rule our reality and in part, create our environment. How we think about life balance also determines the physiological and psychological impact.

The Joy Formula is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances that then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance - or at least, make us feel we have a sense of control over our lives!

'Busy-ness’ is the new ‘disease’ impacting almost everyone. Rushing and having the perception (and reality) of ‘too much to do’ can destroy mental clarity and physical health. Constant social media comparisons and addictions don't help.

Understanding the 3 possible stress responses and channeling them in the right way changes everything! How we feel, how we respond to those events and how others in turn respond or react.

Amanda will discuss The Life Pizza which is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances in areas that are most important to us, and what areas we put most of our attention on - which then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance.

This is an engaging experience that sends people out of the room laughing and determined to balance their 'life pizza’
