Speech Topics


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

The Chemistry of Confidence

Do you have days where more confidence could deliver even more success in work and life?

Good news. A simple solution is close at hand… and it’s based… in chemistry.

Body chemistry is at the heart of our behavior, which includes our level of confidence. So, in order to become more confident, you have to change your own chemistry.

Jenny will show you how to be your own confidence chemist. It begins by understanding the 5 Chemicals of Confidence: Serotonin, GABA, Dopamine, Endorphins, and Cortisol. The next step is knowing how and when to increase/decrease these chemicals and how to connect your optimized chemistry to your overall outlook and purpose.

That’s the chemistry of confidence.

For people who:

  • Seek a better sense of control
  • Are ready to start feeling on track, on purpose, and on fire
  • Feel held back by self-doubt, self-criticism, worry or anxiety
  • Wish to grow their professionalism: using their voice, leading their team, taking more risks, finding new ways to innovate, collaborate without feeling threatened by others

The audience will:

  • Discover the 5 chemicals that affect confidence, mindset and leadership abilities
  • Learn 5 strategies to create the ideal chemical recipe for feeling confident, grounded, focused and in control
  • Learn 4 practices to help gain clarity, prioritize, make better decisions and take action
  • Recognize the symptoms of chemistry that don’t support confidence
  • Learn to stop the cycle of negativity loops, fear, and worry
  • Realize the connection between chemistry and purpose
