Once they enter teenage years, many girls start hiding their uniqueness and give away their power to fit in. This behaviour can become so ingrained that even as adults many women struggle with self knowledge and confidence – the key ingredients that help you find purpose and create impact. It’s only when you accept your true identity that you are able to get to know yourself, embrace your uniqueness, and make your mark. In this inspirational talk, Mehrnaz explores the self-deprecating behavior of trying to be like ‘everyone else’ and guides girls and women to embrace their true selves.
Obstacles, challenges, and failures are guaranteed to strike us at some point in our lives. Grit helps us face challenges successfully, but researchers have had difficulty pinpointing exactly how some individuals build grit and others don’t. In this inspiring talk Mehrnaz uses her personal story of how she beat her own debilitating struggle with selective mutism and takes you through the path she followed to confidently land on the TEDx red circle.
Mehrnaz motivates her audiences to reach their highest potential by rethinking what reaching a goal means by:
- Focusing on progress, not results
- Building habits and learning strategies
- Walking the path of mastery
At the Intersection
Goal setting allows organizations to come together and coordinate the work of individuals so that everyone is pulling in the same direction. The desire to act and move toward a goal has the potential to unlock intrinsic motivation and productivity. However, research shows that only 8% of people actually achieve the goals they set for themselves. There is a disconnect between the potential of a goal and the actual results we often see. Implementing effective goal-setting techniques creates a bridge between this potential and the actual results and leads employees to the true power of their goals.
This workshop will focus on the techniques of setting goals that lead to results. We’ll cover:
- The wrong way most people set goals
- How goals, habits, and process work together
- The steps to setting short-term and long-term goals
- How to measure progress
- The power of detecting small wins in achieving goals
Participants will walk away with the mindset, techniques, and the steps they can implement immediately to set and achieve short-term and long-term goals.
