IT'S TIME TO BECOME FEAR(LESS)

TESTIMONIALS

“The energy and humor you brought to the main stage captured the hearts and minds of our attendees. Not only was your presentation memorable, it was very actionable.”

Troy Stang, President/CEO Northwest Credit Union Association

“Rebecca’s keynote was dynamic, thought provoking and action inspiring. It resonated with me and our team in such positive ways, causing us to really look at the blindspots and specific ways to create behavior change in both our lives and businesses. We received more positive feedback from her talk and requests for a copy of her talk than any of the other speakers.”

Amanda McAbee , Director of Business Affairs

“Rebecca was instrumental in guiding our team to the next level of growth during our last annual training event.  She provided a great value to each individual, that they were able to take with them after the event”

Kim Caldwell , Consolidated Assurance

“Rebecca was simply amazing! I loved her passion for the topic and her presentation style. Very effective and memorable information.”

Justin Steele , Professional Development & Events Manager

By being “real” and entertaining at the same time, Dr. Heiss inspired us all to not “let fear hold us back”.  Just remembering that one quote has given us all the confidence to keep pushing forward.  The positive energy that Dr. Heiss created in the room was the perfect start for the SC Women’s Business Summit.

SPEAKING TOPICS.

Leadership Keynote Speaker

FEAR(LESS) LEADERSHIP

As leaders it’s imperative that we are self-aware. And yet research finds that nearly 90% of us…aren’t. We have to find new ways of understanding our fears, our strengths, our shortcomings, and all of the ways that our brains keep sabotaging us from being the most effective leaders we can be. That’s where Rebecca comes in by providing immediately applicable strategies to intervene with our self-limiting instincts.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Break through barriers to optimal performance.

Build self-awareness and fear(less) culture.

Drive your company to be more profitable and productive.

Teams Keynote Speaker

FEAR(LESS) TEAMS

Competition is an instinct that has helped us all reach great heights, but what happens when the competitive nature of your employees prevents internal cooperation and constrains the performance of the team? Through her humorous and interactive examples, Rebecca brings biology to business, exploring how to train our brains to best promote internal stability, innovation, and teamwork through instinct interventions.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Understand how internal competition decreases productivity.

Adopt a common external enemy to decrease internal conflict and drive a sense of teamwork and belonging.

Increase and enable positive communication, ideation, and creative collaborations.

Inclusion Keynote Speaker

FEAR(LESS) INCLUSION

No blame. No finger pointing. No guilt.  Fear(less) inclusion is all about understanding the instincts that drive us to carry bias.  No matter our background, we all carry some shortcuts and biases about others (and ourselves!). It doesn’t make us bad people – it makes us human! But when we understand the instincts that drive these stories, we can be more effective in intervening before they negatively affect our relationships and performance.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

Learn how to neutralize fears that lead to ineffective decision making.

Understand the root of subconscious bias and stories that lead to unproductive behaviors.

Engage with comfort in the language to talk about what is often a highly difficult conversation.

The more we seek healthy forms of discomfort the more we can train our brains to stay in a place of excitement rather than one of fear when that discomfort finds us unexpectedly.

We have to challenge ourselves to seek the uncomfortable.

To be fearless in our pursuit and receipt of feedback.

How will you be fearless today?
