How to Bring Out the Best in Anyone!

Whether you are an educator interacting with a student, a parent interacting with a child, of if you are an individual just talking with your very best friend, if you don’t believe in that person and what they are trying to accomplish, you are just getting in their way! When you communicate that you believe in someone, you instantly change their life. People change when you change your attitude toward them. This lecture helps audience members inspire others to grow and achieve.

Building Your Inner Superhero to Accomplish or Overcome Anything

A complicated and less than ideal upbringing like the one Elliott Connie had can often break a spirit. So what then, is the reason that some of us gain strength from our shortcomings and trauma? It was this question that initiated Connie’s journey into the world of psychotherapy. The spark that question created within him led to a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in professional counseling. This speech conveys the lesson that Connie has learned and taught audiences around the world: resilience makes or breaks the human spirit.
