Contagious Confidence: Mastering Your Leadership Voice

Self-doubt and uncertainty consign great ideas to limbo, hindering your team from exploring the big opportunities that will differentiate your company and disrupt the marketplace. That changes now.

Through this interactive experience, Laura catalyzes the confidence of audience members, so that your up-and-coming talent can fully embody that aspirational state of leadership, and leave understanding what they need to do to activate that leader inside of themselves.

Together, they explore this mindset, the actions it inspires and how, together, they create a momentum of contagious confidence which can’t be reversed. Audience members leave with a physical manifestation of their own personalized roadmap directing them to find and own the very core of their leadership voice, and with the confidence to make that dream a reality.

The Key to Solving Big Problems: Stop Asking “How Can I Help?”

Do you feel called to serve?  Have what it takes to solve the big problems? Each time we hear of a terrible situation, in our homes, our communities, our places of work, or the world at large, we ask ourselves, “How Can I Help?” As a result, we get in the way of actually helping.

In this talk, which first debuted on the TEDxCambridge stage and shared online thousands of times, Laura implores audiences to stop asking this question and to ask a better one, one that brings a fundamental shift in how we go about solving our most vexing of problems.

This presentation reframes the question and gets entrepreneurs, staff, donors, volunteers, and investors out of their own way, avoiding the martyrdom, the burnout, and the malaise that sets in overtime with entrepreneurs and founders so that we can finally solve the big problems that plague us all. (Spoiler alert! It also works with our little everyday problems, too!)

One Life, One Shot: One Impact

What is the change you wish to see in the world? What are the personal and professional levers you hold that can make this change happen? And what are you going to do about the ones you lack?

Laura takes no prisoners in this motivational talk, where she challenges audience members to change the emphasis from fear of failure to excitement about success.

Aimed at entrepreneurs and misfits, idealists and dreamers, as well as those seeking to align who they are with what they do, this talk lights a fire within that catalyzes energy and excitement towards becoming the change agent needed to maximize impact.

Laura spoke for American Dream U at our event in Camp Zama, Japan. She shared the opportunities that the transitioning men and women of our Nation’s military have in the nonprofit world, therefore, helping the audience think outside the box when regarding transitioning back into the civilian workforce. We can’t wait to have her speak at another military installation in the future!
