Keynote Topics

The Challenge of Diversity: Why It Leads To Low Morale And How To Fix It

A diverse team always looks great on paper -- that is until the individuals on that team try to do their jobs against a backdrop of high demands, tight deadlines, and undefined expectations. 

Many culturally diverse companies suffer from high turnover rates and low morale, which can lead to low productivity and lost revenue. Some companies even experience such toxic work environments that they find it challenging to meet even their minimum quarterly or annual goals. These challenges are often rooted in communication breakdowns caused by cultural differences. 

In this powerful and enlightening talk (that can be incorporate into your company's diversity programming as an all-day workshop), Ellie pulls on various resources to address these issues and provide tangible, actionable solutions, insights and exercises that will close the communication gaps, raise morale, and inspire your team to re-commit themselves to your company -- thereby increasing productivity and recovering lost revenue.  

Changemaker Mindset: Becoming Comfortable with Discomfort

In this captivating talk about the power of embracing discomfort, Ellie puts her audience on edge with an experiment that requires them to surrender to the present moment fully. In this visceral way, she and her audience explore the birthplace of innovation and re-define what it means to be a change-maker in today’s ever-shifting climate. 

The Psychology of Succeeding With Ease: Why Huslte Mentality Is Keeping You Stuck

What does it take to be successful? Most people will tell you things like "hustle more," "be smarter," "be lucky," "work harder," “work longer," "be driven," "be relentless," "persist and persevere," and “don't take no for an answer."  

What all these suggestions have in common is that NONE of them are guaranteed ways to success. Sure, there are people who do these and succeed, but for every person who finds success by using one or more of these tactics, there are a dozen who don't.  

So, what then is the real secret sauce? What does it actually take to succeed?  

In this riveting and aha-moment-filled talk, Ellie dissects the internal ecosystem required to truly succeed. By looking at the internal conditions for success, she unravels the myths we've been told for generations and helps her audience set themselves up for actual success by adjusting their mindset.
