Coaching in a Keynote: Unlocking Your Full Potential

Audience: General

Key Theme: Use your unique strengths and talents to live and work with intention, passion and purpose.

All of us want to live our best lives, both personally and professionally. But for most of us, we are the ones holding ourselves back. The key to realizing our full potential is to stop living on autopilot and living intentionally every single day.


This keynote talk is actually a personal coaching session in disguise. In her presentation, Kristen will show your audience how to identify their most positive and promising traits – and how to apply them to get the most out of life every day. 


Kristen’s talk also addresses the importance of total well-being and how to recognize and maximize individual strengths, interests and resources. She’ll demonstrate how individuals and organizations can use this knowledge to create a work environment that is future-oriented and values-based. 


Throughout the talk, Kristen incorporates time for personal reflection and hands-on activities to help each audience member understand and apply the concepts presented. 

Leadership at All Levels

  • Discover how to change their mindset to see themselves as a leader

  • Identify what kind of leader they are, using their strengths as a guide

  • Determine opportunities in their day-to-day work to serve as a leader with colleagues, vendors, or customers/clients

  • Learn five ways to grow their leadership skills and set themselves up for future growth
