Sometimes it can feel like the harder we try, the more things stay the same, and this can happen on a daily basis. Have you ever looked at your "to-do" list and found more things on it than there was time to do? That can be maddening especially when we’re already working like crazy. In this talk, Jarrod is looking at the thinking patterns of highly effective people and why they never seem to get overwhelmed or stressed out. He is giving us the clue about what they are doing differently and how we can do the same. Jarrod Haning works as a performance coach with his company Mindset Performance where he trains leaders in the thinking patterns of success. If someone keeps running up against the same old obstacles like not having enough time or not having enough money, it is probably not for lack of trying. There could be a small blind spot in their thinking patterns that has been tripping them up. You can learn more about his work through his recently published book “Trying harder won’t get you there.” When he isn’t on stage speaking or training, you’ll find him performing with the South Carolina Philharmonic or competing with his 7 year old for “tickle champion of the world."

She focused on doing what she had to do about ALS – on every level – while still keeping it in the background of her life and reserved the foreground for what matters most: her family, work and the people with whom she works. She keeps her life’s purpose in the lead and identifies as a wife, a mother, a new grandmother, a professional woman. Her talk is about gaining a new understanding of the importance of the relationship with oneself, and the skills it takes to improve and develop that internal connection. Mariah is a 36-year ALS survivor, advocate, motivational speaker, award-winning psychotherapist and the founder/director of the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy and Training in Malvern, PA. She focuses on inspiring others to create positive relationships for personal and professional excellence.

Wrong. It's the exact opposite. Author and inspirational speaker Anna Baltzer explains how neutrality is a dangerous trap -- and an illusion.
