Balance for Better

Inspired by the story of her refugee family who narrowly escaped severe persecution for their beliefs in gender equality and the elimination of prejudice, Shadé demonstrates how deep-rooted beliefs about gender bias affect our perceptions and how we view our own potential. In this optimistic and empowering conversation, Shadé shares insights of how gender equality is not only good for women, it’s good for our economic wellbeing. Through working together and recognising the role our mindset and character plays (more so than gender), we can create a world where we are all free to pursue our passions and to contribute our unique talents.

Evolving Leadership: The Missing Trait to Transformative Leadership

This talk is all about evolving leadership thinking and development for the present day reality.We’ll examine the core development fundamentals necessary to be a transformative leader of impact, unpacking the three core areas of mindset, method and mastery. Do you know the one quality that all truly transformational leaders have in common? Chances are you don’t because research has only recently identified this one quality, and it’s not what most of us would think. Without this foundational quality, a leaders’ influence will always be limited. In this informative and inspiring keynote, audiences will learn what this quality is, why it plays such a crucial role in leadership and specific ways to develop it to step closer to becoming a transformational leader.

I Don’t Want to be Happy - Said No One, Ever! – The Art & Science of Happiness

Based off findings from her best-selling book, Shadé reveals 5 actionable, proven Hacks for rewiring your brain and shifting your lens towards a happier, more successful life. We’ll explore the power of positive thinking and what this does to your brain, how self-limiting beliefs and psychological blocks could be sabotaging your success, how your attitude shapes your reality and what you create around you, why expressing gratitude is a key driver towards a happier existence, and how serving others makes us happier and can lead to greater life-satisfaction. This interactive and engaging keynote is a great addition if you want to leave your audience empowered to be the Architects of their Lives.

Show Up, Step Up, Speak Out – for Women in Business

Countless studies have shown that women have more of a tendency to focus on what they lack, their gaps and their weaknesses rather than strengths. By combatting self-limiting beliefs and learning hacks for greater confidence and wellbeing, women will be ready to confidently communicate their vision and leadership purpose and tp have greater clarity in their goals and aspirations. This keynote explores the research and neuroscience behind what frequently holds women back, the basics of how the subconscious creates our reality, and the tangible tools and strategies that women can embrace to have more confidence, greater presence and greater in their careers.

The Science of Change & Influence

Resilient leaders are those who adapt, change, and take-on challenges as powerful opportunities to re- invent and re-empower themselves. We’re living in a world and business landscape that’s changing at an unprecedented rate. It’s imperative that we continually evolve the way that we work and lead so we can continue to achieve excellence in this era of uncertainty. What goes on in our minds when faced with change? Why is it sometimes so hard to manage our emotions and why do we resist? Through an understanding of the basics of neuroscience and the psychology behind how our brain responds to changes at work or in our environment, audiences will learn to view change as opportunity rather than a threat through a growth mindset and other easy-to-apply strategies. Using examples from some leading global companies, we explore the importance of a culture of ownership, accountability and candour, and pushing through the fear to make change an ally, all with a view to develop the ability of your leaders to thrive upon challenge and transform themselves, their teams, and their organisations.
