Signature Keynote & Workshop

Signature Keynote

We sometimes feel a disconnect between the vision we hold for ourselves as parents, partners, and family members, and our day-to-day reality. We find ourselves second-guessing decisions or welling up with guilt or shame when triggered. Through humor, imagery, stories, brain science, and research supported tools, embedded in Dr. Willis’s Elemental LivingTM Model for Parenting and Personal Leadership, audiences will learn to demystify difficult relationship dynamics and learn powerful tools to help them regain their center when out of balance with those who matter most.


Signature Workshop

Despite good intentions, and deep insights from friends, books, and blogs, when we’re triggered, many of us find ourselves feeling frustrated and living in unhelpful cycles of stable misery with our partners or kids. This workshop will help participants gain clarity and direction on how to break unhelpful patterns in an important family relationship. In a half-day workshop, participants create a personalized, practical action plan for one key relationship. In a full-day workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to receive personalized coaching to gain deeper insight into ways they can reclaim connection in a key relationship.
