It’s How We Work - The Surprising Science Behind Getting Your Best Work Done

In an age of disengagement, distraction and fatigue, it seems how we work isn’t working. In this thought-provoking keynote, Health and Productivity Expert Michelle Cederberg shares new research from her forthcoming book It’s How We Work that will help change that. She explores how we can work better through four science-backed success factors that will truly help you get your best work done:

  • Why we work addresses the purpose and direction we bring to our work, why goals matter, and how personal engagement boosts success and satisfaction on the job.
  • How we work it addresses the good, the bad and the ugly in the habits, skills and discipline we bring to daily tasks. Learn what science says about distractions, negativity and other productivity killers.
  • How we own it addresses how to train your brain to boost self-confidence and mindset, to improve the quality of your goals and your path to success.
  • How the body works to help us work better addresses all the ways health boosts work ethic and output (not to mention what it does for your longevity).

We’ll explore the inter-relatedness of these four success factors, and what you can do to get the best out of yourself and your team in all you do.

Dare to Live It Big - How to Move from Self-doubt to Success in 7 Easy Steps

When it comes to crushing goals and finding success at higher levels, often the biggest barriers we must navigate are ones we’ve built for ourselves. Self-doubt and lack of confidence often show up when we stretch outside our comfort zone toward something big. That’s normal by the way. We’re genetically wired to look out for danger and avoid risks. So, how do we know when to trust those self-doubt voices and when to tell them to shut up?

In this thought-provoking and entertaining session, Michelle Cederberg takes an honest look at how we get in our own way as we strive for better, and what we can do to turn self-doubt into success.

In this session, you will:

  • Explore how the brain sets us up for ‘protective failure’ as we strive for success, and learn tactics to bypass the barriers.
  • Look at new research in Positive Psychology that will give you a fascinating perspective on the power of love, gratitude and joy as emotions that prime your neural pathways for success.
  • Learn seven simple strategies that can help you improve mood, boost happiness and do away with self-doubt in all you do that matters to you.

This is your life. Dare to live it BIG. Michelle shares stories of her own journey with self-doubt that will make you laugh, think and ultimately realize that each of us is capable of so much more than we can even imagine…if we’d just get out of our own way.

  • Discover the four variables that contribute to higher levels of success and satisfaction; direction, discipline, mindset and health.
  • Identify the strong, strained and missing variables in your own Success-Energy Equation; what’s working, what you need to subtract, and what you should add in.

Full of hilarious stories, anecdotes and innovative strategies, you’ll leave this session with a renewed sense that it’s possible to win big at work and still have a life.

Confidence, Capacity and your Competitive Edge - The Leader’s Guide to Peak Performance… in Everything

When work demands are high, and the schedule is full, it’s far too easy to let lack of time and energy guide how you take care of yourself. It seems there’s always something more important to do, but when health gets pushed aside, it has a direct and often negative impact on energy, productivity, and positivity. Not to mention what it does for wellness and quality of life.

Research shows that the very health practices we push aside in the name of work progress, are the keys to better peak performance and safety. In fact, health delivers the ultimate competitive edge for business success at every level of your organization. Boost confidence, capacity and your competitive edge with simple methods that make a big impact.

In this session, you will:

  • Be reminded of the many brain and body benefits of exercise, eating right, sleep, and stress management, and learn why health provides the ultimate competitive edge in today’s workforce.
  • Assess your current health-practices; what’s going well, what’s missing, and what you shouldn’t be without.
  • Identify effective, time-efficient ways to optimize your health, and that of your teams, so you show up every day mentally, physically and emotionally dialed-in.

And consider this: If you’re already knocking it out of the park with career success, imagine how much more capable you’ll be when you prioritize health as a non-negotiable part of your business plan.

Testimonial

I have heard Michelle speak twice before, and would jump at an opportunity to hear her again. She will gauge your group and customize her presentation, keeping your interest with her heartwarming stories, and enthusiastic energy that she brings to the room. I remember and live by her quotes on living life to the fullest.

Testimonial

Michelle is an extremely engaging speaker. She opened for our Canadian Cardiovascular Nurses Spring Conference hosted in Calgary this year and I wish we could have heard her speak for the entire day. She brings laughter and energy and has simple take aways for all of us. Michelle tailors her messages on self-care to meet the audience’s needs. This topic is especially important for Nurses as we have tendency to always put the needs of others (our patients/ our own family members/ friends/ co-workers etc.) ahead of our own.
