Topic: Blind Spots to Breakthroughs

Speaker: Dr. Rebecca Heiss, speaker and author


Blind spots make everyone look bad. Don't get caught with your eyes closed!

By definition, we are incapable of seeing our own blind spots. Not recognizing that we don't know what we don't know can be costly in any organization. Rebecca's “Blind Spots to Breakthroughs” helps employees identify and overcome behaviors that act as barriers to their optimal performance on both an individual and organization-wide basis.

Blind spot recognition drives:
- productivity
- employee health
- innovation
- creativity
- global competitiveness
- profitability
- motivation
- broader customer base
- ROI in human capital
- internal cooperation
- recruitment/retention of top talent B

Key Takeaways:
- Identify bias & ethical blind spots in individuals and at the organizational level.
- Understand and overcome the evolution of potentially harmful human behaviors.
- Establish a road map to keep blind spots in check.

With the number of employment discrimination charges reported by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission at an all-time high, no one can afford to ignore their blind spots. Rebecca's real-world approach will entertain, open eyes, and help prevent the disasters that occur when we fail to check our blind spots.

Speaker’s bio:
Rebecca knows fear. As a biologist and stress expert, Dr. Rebecca Heiss is dedicated to helping us become self-aware and overcome our instinctual limitations – the ancient, often subconscious fears that hold us back from our optimal performance and our happiest lives. Her research has been designated “transformative” by the National Science Foundation and it is waking up audiences around the world.

As an author (Instinct, April 2021), founder and CEO of the 360-review mobile application, icueity, and highly sought-after professional speaker, Rebecca has found her calling in helping others recognize the power of biological applications in their lives. A former educator, Dr. Heiss spent much of her earlier career in the classroom at both the high school and college levels and was recruited to be a founding member of an innovative charter school with a focus on entrepreneurial thinking and impact-based learning.

Rebecca has been honored to speak internationally on her work, including multiple TEDx talks. Her “fear(less)” message inspires hope and actionable insights to train our brains to work for us, rather than against us in times of uncertainty. With surprising humor and palpable energy, no matter if Dr. Heiss is delivering virtually or on stage, she wins over audiences around the world with her interactive, inspiring and timely takeaways. She lives in South Carolina with her spoiled rotten dog named Guinness, and every day tries to live her life motto: “spread happy.”
