Improving Performance With Heart and Mind Coaching

Tuesday, May 15

Location: Universe Ballroom 123

While we often find ourselves in pursuit of excellence that is somehow linked to external approval, true confidence and genuine desire to grow one’s mastery emerge from inside. Internal alignment is at the root of where full potentiality becomes consciously felt, embodied and transformative in practice. So how do we tap this inner motivation for growth as facilitators of learning?

Drawing on my experience as a coach, teacher, and learner, I will discuss ten simple, easy to implement empowerment practices that produce transformative “Aha moments”, lasting behavior change, and resolve inner conflicts that sabotage best performance. These insights will leave you with invaluable tools and practical know-how for doing better in your life, career and help you catalyse brilliance in others.
