As a two-time Olympian and World Record setter, Kate Ziegler knows what it takes to be a champion. Like any great athlete in pursuit of an Olympic birth, she learned focus, commitment, and fortitude. However, her journey to the top of the athletic mountain was also marked with injury, illness, and defeat that left her standing in the valley below with one choice - lay down or get back up fighting. By combining stories and lessons from her Olympic experience with proven methods for success, Kate inspires and challenges audiences to redefine success, examine their motivations and processes, and resolve to unleash their inner champion.
Stop waiting! Confidence is learned, not earned.
Confidence is one of the strongest drivers of success. While many believe confidence is something earned through titles, accomplishments, and appearance, the truth is confidence is developed like any other skill. It starts with changing habits. During this session you will become aware of habits that are negatively impacting your confidence and learn pragmatic tactics for building the skill of confidence.
Comfort: the enemy of your dreams. Get uncomfortable NOW!
Stepping outside your comfort zone is daunting and requires energy to overcome fear and inertia. However, it is also where creativity thrives and progress and growth lie. Learn to take control of your fears and realize the opportunity to grow, learn, and expand you personal and professional repertoire as you step outside your comfort zone.
How did you fail today? If you aren’t failing you’re failing.
Many of us have experienced the anxiety associated with the fear and frustration of failing, despite trying our best. What if your fear is actually contributing to or, worse, causing your failure? Learn from Kate as she shares her experience with the fear of failure and the steps she took to overcome it, along with leading research to help you reach new heights and recognize the surprising blessing of failure.
Carrot or the stick: The many means of motivation
Motivation is not magic. It is not a pill to take or switch to turn on. Yet, it feels magical. Motivation is the burning desire and passion to achieve our goals, to persevere, and to find our flow. Sustaining motivation is tough under the best circumstances, especially when seeking motivation externally or in the wrong places. However, it is attainable. Sustainable motivation is a learned skill requiring practice and it begins within.
Learn the importance of self-motivation and practical tips for achieving sustained self-motivation by controlling your emotions and thoughts during this interactive session.
Distinguished, not defined: Identity beyond titles, appearances, and status
CEO, athlete, professor, writer, dancer. Job titles that too frequently become our identity. Defining our identity by what we do is dangerous because eventually what we do changes, leaving us on the floor with the rug pulled out from under us, lost, confused, and, at worst, feeling a lack of value. While our titles distinguish us, we must define ourselves by something unshakable, reliable, and complete - our identity in Christ.
Recognize the untruths about your identity and value and discover the freedom you have to be who you were created to be, beyond your job title, as you find your identity in Christ.
