You’re Enough! A Self-C.A.R.E. Strategy to Transform Stress Into Success

According to The World Health Organization anxiety and depression cost the global workforce $1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion U.S. dollars) per year in lost productivity! In addition, more than 50% of U.S. workers are not engaged at work as a result of stress. This presentation examines the causes of these mental health challenges and outlines a strategy that all attendees can use to decrease stress, reverse burnout, and increase productivity.

Throughout this experience, participants will:
Learn how to develop a system of self-care that supports their desired level of success using Darryll’s proven C.A.R.E. framework.
Identify and reduce/eliminate causes of their stress, depression, anxiety, etc.
Rewire limiting beliefs to optimize their performance and productivity
Reframe mental health stigmas to take pride in their wellness (vs. feel shame)

Vulnerability is the New Currency: How Vulnerable Storytelling Can Increase Connection, Sales & Impact

Effective communication is a valuable skill that should be continuously developed in various areas such as employee training, sales closing, email writing, social media posting, conducting successful meetings, and building closer relationships. But there's one aspect of communication that is often neglected, and that is the power of vulnerable storytelling. By sharing personal experiences, individuals can build stronger connections with their colleagues and clients, resulting in more successful outcomes. This talk will delve into the dynamics of vulnerability and storytelling and how attendees can use them to improve their communication skills.

Throughout this experience, participants will:

This speech offers a roadmap for aspiring and seasoned leaders alike, empowering them to rise above conformity, inspire others, and create a world where leadership emanates from the depths of one's unique identity.

Throughout this experience, participants will:

Connect more deeply with themselves through self-discovery, active listening, and spending time in nature
Learn how to be a more effective and courageous leader through personal growth strategies
Understand the value of the expression and the role it plays in effective leadership

Say YES! The Key to Living In Your Full Potential

The success of highly effective leaders can be traced to pivotal moments — specifically YES moments — when they made powerful decisions that changed the trajectory of their life and others. Why? Because success is less about the tasks one needs to do and more about the decisions one has to make. This presentation gives attendees the motivation, inspiration, and tools to say YES to their dreams and live in their full potential every day!

Throughout this experience, participants will:

Learn how leaders, influencers, and everyday heroes have impacted the world by making YES decisions
Understand the #1 thing that keeps people from reaching their full potential and how to overcome it
