Without Limits: How to Create Inspired Vision- Keynote,
Liz Nead had a successful corporate career in the insurance
and mortgage technology industry when she happened upon
a book about vision boards. As an experiment, she captured
a lifetime of dreams on her own vision board. Surprisingly,
her "life without limits" became a reality
a short 119 days later as every idea came to life -
speaking engagements, a television pilot, a radio show
- even six pounds lost. She continued to refine the
process over a decade, winning an Iowa Motion Picture
Association Award for her television show- "Life
Dare," climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and co-authoring
an Amazon Best Seller. Today Liz shares her 5-step process
to creating and achieving vision, encouraging her audience
to think beyond daily responsibilities to design the
life experience they want…a life without limits.
Climb of My Life- Keynote
Liz Nead fulfilled a lifelong dream when she summited
Mt. Kilimanjaro on July 4, 2014, climbing over 19,000
feet to the top of the largest free-standing mountain
in Africa. She traveled to Tanzania ready to conquer
the adventure but the thin air, jet lag and temperatures
were challenging, forcing her to think and work differently
during the 7-day journey. She completed the climb successfully,
transformed by her own struggle and her experience with
the Mt. Kili climb culture. Liz shares those lessons,
sometimes humorous and often touching about personal
growth, the power of imbalance and the transformation
of living in the moment.
1440 Principle- Keynote, workshop
Liz Nead was on her way home from a stressful dinner
with a friend when a though popped into her head, 'What
if I had to pay one dollar for every minute tonight?
Would it be worth it?' It was then the 1440 Principle
was imagined- a life management principle used to cast
a light on relationships, careers, health and the future.
Highly interactive and entertaining, Liz guides the
audience through a new way of thinking, using the 1440
Principle to imagine paying ($1.00 for every minute)
for everything they say, think and do. Participants
leave with a new way of thinking about their life and
strategies to create both necessary boundaries and new
opportunities for growth.
Your Game: accessing your internal blueprint
person is born with a unique game that cannot be duplicated
by anyone else. Often individuals are taught there is
a formula for advancement- they must duplicate a way
of talking, thinking and leading that points to success.
Imitation often leads to an uncomfortable feeling you
somehow don't have the right equipment- and others are
better equipped to prosper. Liz Nead believes true success
comes from understanding the equipment you were born
with, developing these talents into skills and learning
to play your game with your team. Liz uses powerful
examples of historical and modern day inventors, entertainers
and leaders and shares simple strategies to implement
your game in communication, leadership, organization
and Catching: powerful conversations in collaboration
leaders must be empathetic, clear and bold, no small
task in an increasingly diverse and fragmented workplace.
Pitching and Catching is a unique communication strategy
developed by Liz Nead, equipping individuals to look
at connection as series of exchanges, each tailored
to the needs of the situation and the receiver. Participants
are encouraged to look at the big picture, understand
the variety and purpose of communication "pitches"
available to them and interpret the intent and "catching"
abilities of the team members. In the end, leaders are
shown the power of mindful and empathetic leadership
with simple tweaks to the communication process.
Sesame Street Strategies
a spirited conversation with her military husband about
how and when to do laundry, Liz Nead realized there
were fundamental differences between their priorities
and choices that couldn't be characterized as right
or wrong. While her husband felt supported by predict-ability,
Liz felt constrained by the very same routine. Their
contrasts led her to create the Sesame Street Strategies,
a behavioral prediction model based on six Sesame Street
characters. Imaginative, entertaining and interactive,
Liz uses these characters (developed by child psychologists)
to help audiences unlock, understand and utilize their
differences and promote team success. Sneak peek: Cookie
