ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE – HOW OPTIMISM CONNECTS, MOTIVATES AND ENGAGES
The major disruptor to collaborative teams, joy filled workplaces and high production, sales and service is ‘stinking thinkin’ as Zig Ziglar used to say! The stories people tell themselves about themselves, their colleagues, customers, bosses and the company determines their behaviour.
This presentation helps people understand how to be conscious and mindful of their thinking and stories – and how to change them. And more importantly, why to change them. The formula T+ S = F …thinking (stories) + speaking = feeling – rules everything. How we think determines how we feel, which determines how we behave – but the source of everything is our thinking. 95Click here to find out more or book Amanda% of the time we are operating from an unconscious level – we don’t even know what we are thinking!

THE LIFE PIZZA – 7 WAYS TO BUILD RESILIENCE AND RESTORE WORK LIFE BALANCE
‘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.
Did you know that new research shows us how we THINK about stress decides if our bodies react negatively or not. Our perceptions rule our reality and in part, create our environment. How we view life balance also determines the physiological impact it has. These factors all affect our resilience.
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.
The Life Pizza is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances in what areas 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. It is also the way to introduce concept of resilience and teach them several ‘resilience strategies’. This is an engaging experience that sends people out of the room laughing and determined to balance their ‘ life pizza’!
Change and stress go hand in hand. Participants will learn about how the brain actually can and does change (neuroplasticity); that adults can learn more quickly than children; and that our brains need change to stay vibrant and alert.

THE NEUROSCIENCE OF LEADERSHIP
Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system which doesn’t sound relevant to leadership – but as leaders and team members are humans, our nervous systems control pretty much everything in our bodies, so linking the two is important!
A leaders job is three fold:
1. to create an environment in which people can be the best they can be (lined to the nervous system which affects performance, creativity, innovation and happiness)
2. to help people believe in themselves
3. to change people’s behavior (and yes, neuroscience shows us it’s possible)
We might think the nervous system is just the brain – but the heart and stomach have millions of ‘brain’ cells (neurons) in them – so you ‘think’ and feel with your heart and gut as well! All leadership – or sales or customer service or team work or culture – is based on feelings. How you feel about yourself …and how you make others feel.
This session blends latest findings in neuroscience, epigenetics, emotional intelligence, positive psychology and some common sense in a really funny way – we promise you will laugh! But wait , there’s more, it is full of relevant information and skills that will help you be a better leader – whether that role is part of your title or not!

“You were just fabulous, and by far the best of our speakers over the past several years. I’m particularly grateful for how well you integrated our messages into your presentation. You have a wonderful knack for getting the most hard boiled of the group involved. You even had the biggest cynic in the group laughing himself silly. It is clearly your mission to fill the world with the light and warmth of zoot zoot! Ta Da!!”
“Amanda, we haven’t seen this group this animated ever before! They just loved the experience! Thanks so much for ending our meeting on such a high note. We are getting a lot of kudos and doing ‘Ta Da’ all over the place!”

“Thanks so much for being with us last week! I loved your speech and know that a very large number of folks LOVED your messages. I’m hopeful many of them have been or will be transformed and my team now has some new transformational symbols to apply. We’re very happy with the overall outcome of the event — thanks very much for the huge part you played in making our offsite fun & meaningful!”
“Yesterday as I closed the conference, I offered, in my best Amanda Gore-esque way, that ‘clearly the best thing to happen to me since Sunday night’ was meeting all of you Hard Rockers”; to which the reply was a deafening ‘zoot, zoot, zoot’ and several ‘ta dahs.’ You did it, Amanda! We had an aggressive schedule and objectives. You set a tone that offered that, by being positive and caring, we can accomplish whatever we set our minds to. The plans are well on their way to completion. I would be completely remiss if I did not share with you that you struck a chord with the entire group. And as you know, it was a very skeptical group.”
Hard Rock Cafe
“You had a big impact. The Tada’s and ‘yes…excellent!’ continued long into the next day and all the way through our final dinner. I received a lot of very positive feedback. Thank you for such an energetic and well tailored presentation.”
