The Stress Solution: Transforming Fear Into Rocket Fuel to Supercharge Performance 

Stress isn’t inherently bad. In fact, the highest-performing athletes and leaders have learned the secrets to the upside of stress, using it to fuel their performance rather than hinder it.

Rather than allowing our environments and our natural biological tendencies toward anxiety to hold us back, we can use the same energy to work with us, unlocking our highest potential and learning that when we fear(less), we make room for so much more.

Keynote audiences will leave with tools that enable them to:

  1. Identify the root of our stress response and recalibrate it to work with us in the modern world.
  2. Engage with our fears to reframe them as energy that can optimize performance.
  3. Adopt a simple plan for rewiring our brains to respond differently to threats as challenges, to reduce burnout and restore purpose and fulfillment to our work.

About Dr. Rebecca Heiss:

Rebecca knows fear. As an evolutionary 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 best leadership, 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 of the newly acclaimed book Instinct, founder and CEO of the leadership 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. Today she shares her work from stages around the world as a full-time speaker working to transform people’s fears to fuel they can use to go ALL-IN and find new heights of performance.

Rebecca's "fearless" message inspires hope and actionable insights to train our brains to work for us, rather thn 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 her audiences with interactive, inspiring, and timely takeaways.

Rebecca lives in South Carolina with her spoiled rotten dogs named Guinness & Murphy and every day tries to live her life motto: “spread happy.”

We hope you will join us!
