Amanda Gore Speaking Topics

From Burnout To Joy

The last two years has taken its toll on everyone! Bathed in uncertainty about EVERYTHING, our physical, mental, emotion and spiritual wellbeing has been seriously impacted. Many of us are living with fear, unmotivated, anxious, stressed and feeling burnt out.

This keynote or training is geared around the new skills required to rise up out of the exhaustion and fear and rediscover the joy of living. Simple, easy to do activities and ways to change our mindsets and perceptions will help your team build resilience and leave them with an inner compass! This inner compass will be the way people can navigate their way back to feeling energized and enthusiastic about life again.

The Power of Joy – How Joy Changes Cultures and Performance

You were born with the capacity for joy! Science shows us that by the time you were 7, your pure ‘operating system’ of love and joy was infected with viruses, malware, apps and other people’s programs! Joy at work boosts sales by 37%, increases productivity 31%, reduces errors 18%, burnout 125% and boosts chances of promotion 40%. Joy matters.

Your brain can be rewired for joy. This session teaches you how. It includes how to stop stress killing you; how to be resilient; how to be your best version; how to re- focus on what matters and take responsibility for your choices and behaviour.

Everything in business is about feelings. Trust, empathy, confidence, cooperation,

collaboration, leadership, responses to change - these are just some of the elements (feelings) that create a great culture and team.

This keynote is aimed at helping people feel good about themselves - which changes the way they interact with everyone else - colleagues, clients and family.

Neuroscience of Sales – How to Develop a Buyers Mindset

People have not fundamentally changed for a thousand years but science has. The 'operating system' of a human is not binary based! It's more like quantum computing and runs on feelings. Learn new, neuroscience based practical skills and strategies to re- engage your sales force in a way that leaves everyone feeling recharged and resilient.

Using Amanda's signature experience creating, humor loaded yet fact filled style, people will walk away thinking differently about sales and how they interact with others.

Transforming sales results begins with transforming our thinking, perceptions, actions and choices. Knowing precise ways to interact with others to prove that we are competent, trustworthy and safe (a feeling) is required for top performance.

Joyful Leadership and The Joyful Team – How a Growth Mindset, Engages, Motivates and Changes Cultures

Did you know that science shows us 95- 99% of the time we are literally UN- conscious of our thinking and beliefs? Only 5% of the time are we present and really aware of what is going on inside us! The stories we tell ourselves i.e. What we are thinking literally creates our life, performance and relationships. This session teaches how to change your thinking/story - which changes the life you create - at work and home.

The major disruptor to collaborative teams, joy filled workplaces and high- performance sales and service is ‘stinking thinkin’ as Zig Ziglar used to say.

One energy sucker will bring the whole group down.

Beliefs, the stories we tell themselves about ourselves, our colleagues, customers, bosses and the company determine our feelings and behaviour. Our beliefs control our nonverbal communication which affect all relationships. Our beliefs determine the culture we create around us and the unconscious choices we are making every moment.

It's time to remember we control our thinking and we choose to make conscious choices or not.

This session can change perceptions, relationships, personal accountability, enthusiasm, engagement, energy and culture. But wait - there’ s more! It can also help people adopt a more positive approach to change. While they laugh.

The Joy of Mindsets – 3 Must Have Skills for Change

You are not your mindset - but your mindset creates your life.

Understanding mindsets and mindfulness literally changes your brain and improves performance, leadership, decision making, creativity; reduces anxiety, stress, depression and reactivity; they increase energy, wellbeing and makes you happier. This session will show you simple ways to stop being mindless, be more present, more effective - and more joyful.

Being mindful is ‘waking up’ - about becoming more conscious - and living more consciously - which is one of Amanda's core themes. Most of us are running on habits and patterns of thinking from our past! We don’t even know those patterns are subconsciously programming our present.

Think driving a car. How mindful were you in your first few lessons? Now, how often do you arrive home and you don’ t even know how you got there - yet you were driving the car! This is a common theme with anything we learn - we are mindful in the beginning and then we become mindless.

The difference between a growth mindset and a fixed one is the difference between a joyful life and a stressed, unhappy one; between a joyful team and a dysfunctional one; a great culture or a toxic one.
