FROM RESIGNATION TO RESILIENCE: Ignite Your Passion and Purpose


Recent events have caused your leaders and employees to question their lives and careers. You’ve lost many valuable people and the ones who haven’t left are not as engaged as they used to be. They’re contemplating what they want - and need - from their work and are ready to consider other opportunities.

We process our external world using our inner compass and inner dialogue. Unfortunately, many of us don’t have as much clarity on our inner compass as we think, and we lack awareness of how much our inner dialogues are sabotaging our success. As a result, we’re overwhelmed when faced with change, are less resilient to stress, lose confidence and direction, and are less engaged.

Research shows that people who are purposeful in their jobs perform better, are more likely to avoid burnout, and are more committed.

And using inner dialogue to create purposeful stories drives engagement, passion, and success.

Not only will your people experience the game-changing discovery of their current purpose, but the rich group dialogue that takes place will also form a deep sense of connection, understanding, and unity.


The global pandemic has hit women particularly hard.

42% of professional women report they’re burned out.

1 in 3 say they’ve considered downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce completely.

They're overworked, overwhelmed, overstressed and feeling OVER IT.

Research proves that companies with more female executives are more likely to outperform companies that don’t. You must support, retain and attract talented women in order to develop a culture that enables men and women alike to achieve their potential, employing the power of a diverse, collective genius.

Resiliency Rx: Stress-Proof Your Brain

You’ve actually got two brains: primitive and advanced. Your primitive brain controls how you act and feel, while your advanced brain handles conscious thought, self-discipline, and sense of purpose.

Unfortunately, evolution has left your primitive brain as your default setting and your extremely busy, conflicted modern world causes it STRESS way beyond what it can handle without intentional intervention.

And stress radically changes your chemistry and physiology.

The good news? The right strategies can combat the negative consequences that we all face.

Jenny shines light on the connection between the daily grind of life and the chemistry of the brain and body. She brilliantly reveals how to truly build resilience to stress, and at the same time, how to optimize your purpose and environment.

Jenny has developed a comprehensive, yet achievable set of micro-strategies that any individual or workforce can implement. It’s a philosophy to restore the brain and body’s chemistry to become more resilient. Even better… it’s so easy a primitive caveman (brain) could do it!

For people who:

  • Want to continue to take themselves – and their work – to the next level, in a way that’s easy, achievable and sustainable
  • Want to feel better! More energized, grounded, on purpose, creative, happy, and healthy
  • Want to expand their capacity for what their careers will increasingly demand of them year over year
  • Are stressed and want effective solutions that are easy to implement

The audience will leave with:

  • The answer to the ONE question that guarantees clarity, direction, commitment, prioritization and accountability both inside and outside of work
  • The 7 areas of your life that Resiliency Rx can enhance
  • Ways to leverage over 100 tools to successfully implement change and the secret to making these changes permanent
  • A series of “Micro Strategies” for quickly and easily stress-proofing their brain
  • The knowledge to self-restore the chemistry of their brain, body, and mindset in less than 60 seconds
  • An optional Resiliency Assessment to garner accurate insight into how they’re currently dealing with stress with a customized report on where they can make improvements
  • Three specific commitments that make up their customized action plan
