We all face fear, discomfort, and resistance to change, but our actions in the midst of these mindsets are what truly define us.

In this inspiring research-based talk, customized to address your audience's current challenges, Amy highlights leaders who have courageously chosen positivity in the midst of adversity. Leveraging learnings from positive psychology and behavioral science, she examines how negative mindsets hold us back, why some fear is actually good for us, and strategies to reframe stress to better serve us.

Digital Flourishing
Leadership Strategies to Enhance Performance and Well-being in the Digital Era

CATEGORIES: Well-Being, Technology

Technology-at least in theory-is improving our productivity, efficiency, and communication. Yet the average mobile user checks their phones more than 150 times per day, and 67% of cell owners find themselves checking their phone even when they don't notice their phone ringing or vibrating. Mindful attention is a scarce resource. As one of the world's leading experts on the connection between happiness and technology, Amy Blankson unveils five strategies that successful individuals use to find a sense of balance between technology, productivity, and wellbeing in the Digital Age. In this talk, you will learn how to move from partial attention to full intention, how to hack your distractions to achieve maximum productivity and life satisfaction, and how to rid yourself of the tech graveyard in your office drawers to create more mental and physical space to do the things yo love. By rethinking when, where, why and how we use technology, we can begin tr recapture our focus, deepen engagement, and find flow in our everyday activities and relationships.


  • Discover the impact of distraction on your productivity and happiness.
  • Establish positive technology boundaries to shift from a mindset of inattention to one of full intention.
  • Learn healthy habits for tech use to maximize flow and engagement.
  • Understand how your technology use impacts your perception as a leader.
  • Increase your flow and engagement by using brain-training techniques.

Conscious Innovation
Leveraging Mindset to Thrive in Disruption

CATEGORIES: Innovation, Creativity

In the midst of disruption, a positive mindset is crucial for agile and transformative leadership. Research shows that although the brain receives 11 million bits of information every second, it can only process 40 bits, which means that our ability to "see" opportunity and connect resources depends on our mindfulness in the moment, particularly in times of stress. Individuals who are able to leverage positivity have been linked with 3x more creativity, 40% more productivity, and 23% less symptoms of fatigue. In this talk, Amy will teach audiences how to use appreciative inquiry to rethink stress, reframe circumstances, and retrain their brains to prioritize information in real-time.


  • Understand the brain science behind innovation
  • Learn how perception of circumstances shapes outcomes
  • Utilize appreciative inquiry to see new opportunities and decrease stress
  • Embrace upsourcing and collaboration to accelerate growth
