Featured Keynote Presentation

How to Build Happier, More Resilient, More Productive, and Better-Performing Teams
Jarrett Green and Rebecca Green

Successful leadership requires a mastery of one’s own mindsets, attitudes, and thought patterns, which in turn leads to optimized communication skills and enhanced employee resiliency and performance. During this keynote, Jarrett Green and Rebecca Green will share how employers and HR pros can build deep employee loyalty and trust, motivate and inspire their teams, and unlock their employees’ highest potential through innovative self-awareness, mental reframing, and communication techniques. Attendees will be provided the Six Mindsets of Ascended Leaders and will learn how to purposefully reframe and re-communicate challenges and employee struggles in order to improve their team’s cognitive skills, productivity, and emotional well-being.

Jarrett Green and Rebecca Green consult with and lead workshops at top companies across the globe on matters of employee well-being, stress resiliency, corporate leadership, and peak performance. They work with corporate clients such as US Bank, Tesla Motors, NBC-Universal, and Allstate Insurance Company, as well as many of the largest professional services organizations in the world. They co-created and co-teach the nationally recognized Mindfulness, Stress Resiliency and Peak Performance Program at USC Gould School of Law. Jarrett and Rebecca help workers of all levels experience greater happiness and well-being, enhanced passion and purpose in career and life, and optimized performance and overall success.
