Although computers and devices have improved our lives in many ways, and most of us can’t imagine living without our smartphones, that connectedness influences our stress levels, our relationships, and our overall health and well-being. (Excuse me a second while I check my phone.) … and here’s what to do about it.
The world of work has changed so much in the last year, especially if you’re working from home. I feel like I have been spending way more time working than I used to, and the boundaries between work and life have become blurred. Maybe you can relate?
I’m not one to sit around and get comfortable with the status quo. As much as change makes me uncomfortable, I also know it’s the only way to grow. If the last year has taught me anything, it’s that. So, when 2021 rolled around I blew up my work systems and started making plans for what’s next in my business, and I’m excited about what’s coming.
Sometimes it’s better to think less and do more. If you’re like me, there are times when less work gets done because I overthink or plan excessively. It’s a form of procrastination that holds us back from bigger things. Let’s not do that.
Well, we’re a month and a half into this new year, and I’ll admit, I’ve had a slow start with my regular messages. Admittedly, I needed a break, and a bit of a mindset shift, which I explain in this video and blog…plus I share three ways to shift your pandemic perspective.
If you’re someone who hires speakers, COVID no doubt created a great deal of stress and uncertainty for you, and I get it. There are a lot of moving parts to a great online live, or even pre-recorded presentation, and you need to make sure you hire someone who can get the job done right. Let me help.
Michelle's virtual skills put her in a category few belong to. She transcends the space to make you feel like you are having a one-on-one conversation with her. She is comfortable, relaxed, and skilled at making the audience feel the same way. Michelle is guaranteed to make you feel confident in your speaker choice. She delivers every single time.
Michelle keynoted on stress management at work which fit with our mental health theme and then the panel together with Michelle delved into the themes of diversity & inclusion, and the challenges women face in the workplace.
Some of the comments from the employees on Michelle’s keynote presentation were: ‘Hearing Michelle say that that we don’t have to hold it together was what I needed to hear amidst a pandemic and the challenging times I am in’, ‘you need to give yourself time to recover from stress was the key learning for me’, ‘her full body presentation made it look like she was in the room with us’, ‘it was very engaging’, ‘I have been with the organization for 10 years and this was the best IWD event I have attended in terms of the speaker’.
Other panel speakers said ‘Michelle was well versed in the topic, engaging and very easy to work with as a panel member’ We hope to have Michelle again hopefully face-to-face post pandemic.
I have also had the honour of seeing Michelle present in person at an all day professional development workshop and her humour and enthusiasm shines brightly! I highly recommend Michelle Cederberg for your next event!
We conducted a survey after the event and the results showed that >90% of the team were very satisfied or satisfied by the presentation made by Michelle. It was very impressive, and Michelle really exceeded all the previous guest speakers we used in the past.
Everyone in the room left motivated and re-engaged. Shell Retail would highly endorse Michelle for any audience. She did a fantastic job at getting the attention of the group with her lively and energized presentation.
