Michelle’s Most Popular Speaking Topics:
The Corporate Misery Epidemic: Break Free from Female Brain Drain and Retain Your Top Talent
The female brain drain has led many women leaders to derail off the corporate track. In order to retain top female talent, we must be willing to understand what women are feeling. Within female brain drain are feelings of overwhelm, under appreciated, stressed, angry, depressed, and unfulfilled. Both women and men can learn the messages and unaddressed needs underneath these feelings to create an environment where all corporate leaders and employees internally and externally thrive.
Emotional Empowerment Education: Using Negative Emotions as Guideposts for Growth
Negative feelings have gotten a bad rap and because of this kids don’t know how to effectively handle stress and emotional overwhelm. According to the American Psychological Association, there are few models on how to address their emotions effectively. Kids are being left to handle complicated feelings on their own, often resulting in their emotions coming out “sideways.” Retraining kids, tweens, and teens to understand how their emotions are supporting them to make empowered choices creates a generation that is resilient to stress and emotional overwhelm. Learning an empowered approach to their negative feelings is a natural way to build their self-confidence, leadership skills, and personal responsibility.
The Misery Epidemic: Break Free from the Silent Suffering of Stress and Sadness
Women are sad, stressed, and suffering in silence. With nine out of ten mothers feeling overwhelmed, one in four women over 40 on anti-depressants, and women are twice as likely as men to have anxiety and panic disorders, women are experiencing an epidemic. Despite all our efforts to change our lifestyle, nurture ourselves, and reduce overwhelm, the fact is women are actually more stressed! Worse yet, is that their struggle is experienced as normative, which keeps women silent. In this high-spirited lecture, learn effective tools for being happier at home, more fulfilled at work, and less likely to suffer from overwhelm and stress.

In this highly informative presentation, students will learn how to address the five major stress factors they face in college, overcome stress dangers, and establish emotional health that will have a life-long impact.
Is Stress Killing Our Kids? – Why Emotional Education is No Longer an Option
In the late 20th Century, drugs were infiltrating our schools and killing our kids. What is now silently consuming our kids and altering their behaviors is the impact of stress and emotional overwhelm. With stress levels in teens topping that of adults, we have a generation that does not have effective tools to effectively address the emotional overwhelm they are experiencing. The result is a series of behaviors that demonstrate how their unresolved emotions coming out “sideways” such as overeating, drug use, isolation, bullying, and violent acts against oneself or others. We must hear the plea of this generation and put an end to the insidious impact stress is having on our kids by giving them the tools to emotional empowerment and resiliency they desperately need.
