- MAXIMIZING YOUR INNER SUPER HERO
All Super Heroes have Super Powers, and when they use them for “good” rather than “evil” they can leap tall buildings in a single bound, catch a speeding bullet, or stop a runaway train in its tracks. We all have super powers, we just don’t always know what they are, nor what to do with them. Learn to harness the super powers you have to be a Super Hero every day at work. Come along for a fun ride as Rhonda shares how to find your super powers, and how to use them to help you maximize your Inner Super Hero.
- I CAN'T GET NO SATISFACTION
Do you feel like you are just putting in time when you come to work? Hopefully not. Do you feel appreciated, valued and like you are an important part of the team? Don’t fear if you don’t – You’re not alone! Learn to get “satisfaction.” Just like Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, we are going to do things a little different.
Prepare to have fun, laugh and learn. When you go back to your office, you’ll have a new bounce in your step, and a smile on your face …. After all, what is satisfaction if you don’t feel good? .. You will!
- SOMETIMES YOU'RE THE WINDSHIED, SOMETIMES YOU'RE THE BUG
Sometimes life gets the better of us, and we ask “Whose life is it, anyway”? When you stop living for yourself, and live only for everyone else, something is missing! In this humorous keynote, Rhonda shares that not only do we all experience this feeling – it’s OK to be frustrated!
Learn how to stay away from contagious negativity, look at life through a positive focus and stop blaming (whether it is the economy, government, organization or just bad luck!) For those people who do this naturally, they will learn additional skills to keep on top!
Take control of your own life is the message – and through realistic, easy and fun approaches to control, Rhonda leaves everyone laughing about life, instead of crying – but most importantly, the knowledge on how to get back the life we want to have.
