Session Description

Do you feel like your entire workforce has post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from the havoc unleashed by the COVID-19 pandemic? Is your head spinning trying to define paths forward for your organization and employees in a world where change is happening at a seemingly warp speed?

In this empowering, interactive, and hope-filled message, keynote speaker and adversity expert Heather R. Younger inspires attendees to reimagine the workplace, their roles, and offers a high-level roadmap for succeeding with more ease.

You will learn how to …

  • Use proven psychology to reframe challenges and see opportunities more clearly

  • Lean into their inherent resilience and reduce their stress
  • Collaboratively reimagine workspaces and roles to develop win-win processes and an inclusive culture

If you’re ready to ease the impact of chaos for your team and help them develop the skills and mindsets necessary to navigate change with agility, confidence, compassion, and character, invite Heather to bring this timely topic to your next event.


Heather Younger

Heather R. Younger’s expertise in adversity started early. As the only child from an interracial and interfaith marriage, she was shunned and excluded by extended family. While it left her with a lot of questions growing up, it led her to develop a high level of resilience and a deeply inspired commitment to advocate for the voiceless. Heather is dedicated to creating opportunities for people to learn strategies for reframing their own adversities and stories to lead more productive and joyful lives.

With humor, warmth, and an instant relatability – she helps organizational leaders, teams, and individuals create a laser-focused clarity into what makes them tick. She shows why that’s important while delivering clear and purposeful strategies for embracing change and recognizing the tremendous strength in diversity.

As a champion for positive change in workplaces, communities, and our world at large, Heather inspires others by teaching the kind of intentional leadership that drives real business results such as increased employee engagement, loyalty, collaboration, and connectivity.

The result?

  • Team members feel heard, seen, and valued
  • Companies create safe environments and a culture of trust
  • Diversity and creativity are celebrated
  • Resilience rises
  • Stress falls
  • Productivity goes through the roof
  • Customer retention and referrals soar

Everyone wins – sometimes in ways they didn’t even realize possible.
