Session Description:

Performance Addiction – We Are Dancing As Fast As We Can

Topic Overview: 

Do you find yourself:

  • In survival mode, barely holding your head above water each day?
  • Unable to experience joy in your life that is inherently yours for the taking?
  • Unclear as to why your relationships feel flat or unsatisfying?
  • Unable to feel inspired or to inspire your teams?
  • Struggling with decision making or second guessing yourself
  • Unable to practice self-compassion?
Stress, overtime and disease contribute to 2.8 million workers’ deaths per year (UN Labour Agency),
and that’s just analyzing one side of the coin. Overwhelm that occurs outside of the workplace is also an
epidemic, resulting in strained, empty relationships and joyless existences.
We have created a culture of Performance Addicts, which can rob us of joy regardless of the number of
achievements we tally. As distinct from other addictions, there is no rehab program or support for this
addiction, resulting in an endless hamster wheel of not quite being, doing or feeling enough.
But enough gloom and doom! There is a path to recovery. In this session we will uncover the key
components of performance addiction as well as the practical antidote for overcoming it. We will
discover how to transform your leadership and your life from outside–in to inside-out. This is the
opportunity to create a life of meaning, impact and joy that you deserve.
