From OVER-Commitment to Burnout
You Forgot Your Pants?! Have you ever been so stretched and overcommitted, that you left your home in your undergarments?!  True story.  Have you ever felt like you give all you’ve got but 110%, twenty-four-seven, is never enough?  This lecture will help you:
UNDERSTAND what drives you to overcommit and the correlation to burnout
RECOGNIZE  the causes and contributing factors of BURNOUT and

You’re (Not) the ONE – Overcoming the IMPOSTER SYNDROME
“I’m not a success – I’m a fraud!” What do over 70 % of all high achievers have in common? Yeah, at one time or another they have been scared SHINELESS! Stricken with the IMPOSTER SYNDROM, they become overwhelmed by the feeling of “being a fraud”, with all amassed achievements and accolades attributed to luck or simply not having been “found out” yet. This lecture empowers the audience to put the imposter syndrome in check and prevent prolonged anxiety, a decline in the ability to deliver top performance, unconscious self-sabotaging behavior and a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure.

Embrace Authenticity, Leverage Top Performance
Close the Gap between the results of standardized, objective assessment and the reality of human individuality and the innate drive to express who we are. “I have to wear a mask” is a comment often made by business professionals, yet AUTHENTICITY often rates highly on our list of personal values. Assessment centers help deliver perfect cookie-cutter candidates to organizations’ doorsteps, but there is often a disconnection between the results of standardized, objective assessment and the reality of human individuality and the innate drive to express who we are. That gap throttles Employee Engagement, undermines individual Performance and compromises Personal Well-Being. It substantially minimizes and even reduces an organization’s Return on Investments in personnel acquisition, employee development and retention. Engagement and high Employee Performance demands alignment between the Individual and the Organizational Values. This lecture is your first step toward CLOSING THE GAP.
