THE JOY TEAM

How Optimism Connects, Motivates and Engages

Amanda is the consummate professional – you absolutely know her presentation will be the show stopper for the event! And she is…. Every single time!

- Carole Gregson, Conference Business Manager

Here is a secret formula for success. T + S = F + E. That stands for thinking + speaking = feelings and environment. Did you know that science shows us 95-99% of the time we are UNconscious of our thinking and beliefs? Only 5% of the time are we present and really aware of what is going on inside us! Because everything in business is really about feelings, understanding what you are thinking really makes a difference to your performance and relationships. In this session you will learn more about changing your thinking - and therefore changing your life!

The major disruptor to collaborative teams, joy filled workplaces and high production, sales and service is ‘stinking thinkin’ as Zig Ziglar used to say! Beliefs, the stories people tell themselves about themselves, their colleagues, customers, bosses and the company determines their behaviour.

This presentation helps people understand how to be conscious and mindful of their thinking and stories - and how to change them. And more importantly, why to change them. The formula - T + S = F … thinking (stories) + speaking = feeling - rules everything. How we think determines how we feel, which determines how we behave - but the source of everything is our thinking. 95-99% of the time we are operating from an unconscious level - we don’t even know what we are thinking! Everything in business, when boiled down, is about feelings. They determine the quality of all relationships at work, leadership, teamwork, sales and customer service.

This session also has the opportunity to finish with a 21-day challenge for the team to look at how they are thinking and what they are thinking and strategies on how change it. It’s fun, full of laughter and has a profound impact on how they perceive everything. If you want your change fatigued team enthusiastic, motivated and re-energised this session will do it!

THE JOY FORMULA

7 Ways to Build Resilience and Restore Work Life Balance

Amanda sent the group off on a high, ready and willing to embrace our business strategy and take it to their people. Amanda had the hardest to please leaving the forum with a better understanding of how important perceptions are, more skills in emotional intelligence and committed to changing their own, and their teams’ behaviours. Amanda is a fantastic corporate speaker and highly recommended.

- Westpac Group, Chief Operating Officer

Did you know that new research shows us how we THINK about stress decides if our bodies react negatively or not. Our perceptions rule our reality and in part, creates our environment. How we think about life balance also determines the physiological and psychological impact. TheJoy Formula is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances that then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance - or at least, make us feel we have a sense of control over our lives!

'Busy-ness’ is the new ‘disease’ impacting almost everyone. Rushing and having the perception (and reality) of ‘too much to do’ can destroy mental clarity and physical health.

Understanding the 3 possible stress responses and channeling them in the right way changes everything! How we feel, how we respond to those events and how others in turn respond or react.

Amanda will discuss, The Life Pizza which is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances in what areas are most important to us and what areas we put most of our attention on - which then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance. It is also the way to introduce concept of resilience and teach them several ‘resilience strategies’. This is an engaging experience that sends people out of the room laughing and determined to balance their ‘ life pizza’!

THE JOY OF MINDFULNESS

3 Must-Have Skills for Change

Mindfulness has been shown to improve everything! It literally changes your brain and improves performance, leadership, decision making, creativity; reduces anxiety, stress, depression and reactivity; it increases 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 my 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!

So..how to be more mindful? Many people think that meditation is the answer to mindfulness but there is another path! Here are 3 things you can do to be mindful not mindless.

  1. Notice things!
  2. Question rather than assume!
  3. Reframe.

And here is a simple strategy for handing discomfort and remaining mindful - NARWOL.

  • Notice any discomfort inside you
  • Accept it - and be
  • Willing to allow it to be there
  • Open your heart (stops you judging)
  • Let it go

You will be surprised at how it helps! And brings you back to a more mindful state.

This is one of the practical skills she shares  - Observe your ‘mind state’ all day today - with the goal in mind of becoming aware every time you are mindless! Every time you are not present. Every time you are trapped in a pattern of thinking from the past that creates fear. Then STOP - NOTICE - QUESTION. to become mindful again.

THE NEUROSCIENCE OF LEADERSHIP

What Leaders Should Know about Feelings and Performance

Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system which doesn’t sound relevant to leadership – but as leaders and team members are humans, our nervous systems control pretty much everything in our bodies, so linking the two is important!

A leaders job is three fold:

  1. to create an environment in which people can be the best they can be (lined to the nervous system which affects performance, creativity, innovation and happiness)
  2. to help people believe in themselves
  3. to change people’s behavior (and yes, neuroscience shows us it’s possible)

We might think the nervous system is just the brain – but the heart and stomach have millions of ‘brain’ cells (neurons) in them – so you ‘think’ and feel with your heart and gut as well! All leadership – or sales or customer service or team work or culture – is based on feelings. How you feel about yourself …and how you make others feel.

This session blends latest findings in neuroscience, epigenetics, emotional intelligence, positive psychology and some common sense in a really funny way – we promise you will laugh! But wait , there’s more, it is full of relevant information and skills that will help you be a better leader – whether that role is part of your title or not!

Amanda has a library full of topics – if you are after a specific topic, she will mix and match her thousands of ‘chunks’ of information to suit your company needs.
