Workday Warrior: A Proven Path to Reclaiming Your Time
Life is busier than ever before. We are working longer hours, juggling too many priorities, and often doing email during our so-called leisure time, yet we seem to keep falling further behind. We used to be able to prioritize our way out of overwhelm, but we clearly need a better approach to help us reclaim our time and upgrade our work habits. Something more than discipline, willpower – or hours in the day. The Workday Warrior strategy is a straightforward and proven solution, designed for the world’s busiest people. You’ll learn about three key tools to help you become a Workday Warrior. This strategy will help you concentrate your time and energy on your core priorities, protect time for what you value most, and apply the Simplify Filter to level up. You can overcome overwhelm, and all the stress associated with too much work. You can change how you work and get more done. You are meant to be a Workday Warrior – Ann will show you how to get there.

Secrets of High-Performance Hybrid Teams
High-performance team habits have never been more essential. Teams have experienced incredible disruptions, from virtual to hybrid work, massive industry shifts and unprecedented turnover. Given all of this, culture is more important than ever. Learn what your team needs to thrive – as individuals and as a collective group. Building on long-standing teaming principles, this session focuses on how you can bring out the best across your team, regardless of where you work. Strengthen trust, foster connections, and drive engagement with frequent recognition, developmental feedback and equal access to opportunities. Learn how to balance autonomy with collaboration routines, while providing each team member with the meaning and purpose they crave. Collectively, your team is capable of outstanding results, and we all deserve to work in a culture where we can thrive.

Your Thrive Mindset
Thriving at work requires a specific mindset: a thrive mindset. Elite performers know success is an inside game, regardless of what is happening around us. Learn proven, evidence-based habits to build your resiliency and skillfully navigate stressful situations. Recognize setbacks and failure as learning opportunities. Build your confidence and improve your presence. Recognize and curate limiting beliefs. Revisit your goals and self-imposed limits so you can rise to your full potential and beyond. Embrace a thrive mindset to perform at your best when it matters most. These key lessons – the ones we all should have learned much earlier in life – will transform how you work and live.

Prioritize Your Wellbeing
Wellbeing is an essential foundation for our work and our life. Yet many people struggle to prioritize key behaviors such as sleep, exercise and eating well. Fostering healthy relationships, practicing gratitude, relaxation, and meditation are also crucial for restoring ourselves physically and mentally. This session will inspire you with practical strategies to prioritize your wellbeing. Even more importantly, we’ll cover the latest science in habit formation so you can adopt the habits you crave. We know why wellbeing is important. It’s time we focus on how to prioritize the activities that matter most.
