Her company grew to become Xerox’s largest customer in Scandinavia. Amy returned to college at age forty-three to obtain her RN degree.

Resilience: awareness perspective and choice. It is the bridge between challenges and dreams.

Your power is either hindered or helped by how you interpret a situation or event. Deliberately reframing a situation or event converts both negative and positive feelings into emotional fuel that propels you forward. Problems and challenges can be your most fantastic resource.

Mental Flexibility: Harnessing Your Remarkable Mind
Your personal power is either hindered or helped by how you choose to interpret a situation or event. By focusing on what you can control and managing what you cannot control, you can become stronger not despite challenges but because of them.

Much of what we believe is unconscious, and as humans, we are developmentally wired to feel and act without thinking much about it. So, just like everyone else, leaders often let their instincts call the shots, but leaders' instincts can lead them astray.

Amy describes common thinking errors and how to circumvent them. She explains how to reframe your unhelpful thoughts and improve your healthcare leadership mindset.

Audiences across the country recognize Amy Dee as a master storyteller and brilliant comedian. Studies prove that our brains relax and better remember information delivered through stories. That's why Amy uses her years as a psychiatric RN and personal experiences to tell hilarious and poignant stories that reveal thinking strategies to broaden and build your power through awareness, perspective, and choice.

You will laugh (a lot) while learning to harness your remarkable mind to build a brighter future for you and your team.

From Zero to Everyday Hero: It’s All in Your Head
Remember Your Power to Make a Difference

Who you decide to be in this world matters. That’s why—with the right attitude—no job is small and profound satisfaction can come from finding meaning in everyday actions. By learning how their brain affects their own behavior and influences people around them, attendees discover how to take responsibility for their actions and their attitude. They’ll explore how to bring a positive attitude from “inside” rather than trying to extract it from external events during the day. They’ll realize that for every act of violence and horror we hear about there are thousands of unheralded acts of kindness. They’ll laugh while discovering delightfully practical ways to develop kindness, positivity and deal more effectively with negative people and situations. Specific examples of kindness, generosity and positivity can be included from your own organization.

Choices, Chances, Changes: The 3 Cs of Life
Remember Your Power to Choose Success

You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change. No more being stuck or blaming others! This hilarious but poignant presentation explores how brain and behavior science can help you take back your power to shape your own destiny by making conscious choices and taking chances that align with your goals. Attendees will discover how to improve “choice-making” by putting space between their impulses and their actions. This gives them time to reframe challenges and literally change the way they look at things and how they choose to move forward through change. They’ll learn how to self-guide by asking questions such as, “Will this choice put me closer to or further from my goal?” and “Is what I’m about to say necessary? Will it strengthen my relationship bridge or weaken it?” Attendees will even discover how to find meaning—and value—in failures and how to take brave chances that will create positive change in their lives. Examples of the specific types of challenges your organization and audience face can be included.

Don't Believe Everything You Think!
Remember Your Power to Pause 

Information overload. Decision overload. Overload overload. Does it feel like you’re speed-walking through life—with a pebble in your shoe? For anyone in chronic overdrive or stuck in a life that no longer fits, this presentation reminds us of our power to stop and take a breath so we can respond rather than simply react. Attendees discover how thoughts create emotions—and why it’s dangerous to believe everything you think! They’ll explore how the behavioral science behind anxiety, anger and fear make it impossible to access our “thinking” brain and leave our “ancient” fight-or-flight brain in charge. Attendees will laugh while learning how to trade this constant reactivity for a positive and empowering way of interacting with the world, including how to make those all-important human connections that keep us happier at home and at work.

Brainy Customer Service: Your Customer’s Perception = Your Reality
Remember your power to outsmart your brain

We like to believe we are rational but we are much more prone to irrrational behavior than we think. What makes a first impression a lasting impression? How can you help your customer remember the good moments of service and remain loyal? What psychological forces guide you and your clients’ irrational behaviors? How do these forces sneak up on all us and affect our choices, decisions, loyalty and relationships? Why don’t we realize when we’re getting influenced? In this keynote your audience will laugh while exploring several of the psychological forces that thwart rational thinking. You’ll understand how both you and your customer are vulnerable to the pull of irrational behaviors. When you better understanding the seductive pull of these forces, your customer service will improve and both you and your customer will be less likely to be duped by them in the future.

It’s Not You, It’s Your Brain
Dx: Brain Drain • Rx: Mind Management

Did you know that every day you are exposed to as much information as your 15th century ancestor experienced in a lifetime? You are not only experiencing epidemic “overwhelm” of information and choices, you’re being asked to do more with less. Time management isn’t enough. Today you need MIND MANAGEMENT. Amy’s hilarious stories and memorable metaphors will help you organize your day for better brain benefit, and steer around cognitive biases that hinder objective thinking, and positively deal with daily challenges. Amy will explain how self-compassion leads to better customer service. Laugh while learning practical tools you can immediately apply to make every day more productive and satisfying.
