Help Your Audiences See “Busy” Not as a Badge of Honor, But as the Problem that Undermines Productivity, Profitability, and Sustainable Work-Life Integration
Courtney Spencer has inspired professional audiences and attendees at TED-style events with her dynamic and empowering talks and trainings designed to raise awareness of the rapid increase in cases of anxiety and depression in children and adults. Courtney’s talks are often cited as “most popular” by event planners because her calls to action are both inspiring and action based. Audiences who hear Courtney speak know they have the power to take control of their lives and prosper in a sustainable way.
Her engaging and empathetic speaking style creates space for people to acknowledge their own struggles and learn important steps to break free from the busy filled stupor life and work can too easily become. Audiences feel more engaged and motivated after a workshop or training with Courtney because she expertly facilitates breakthroughs that leave audiences with a toolkit they can draw from to be happier and more productive at work and at home.
Courtney has been a sought after speaker in the area of special education law for years. She earned her law degree from the University of Connecticut School of Law. While there, she interned for Connecticut Legal Services, was the community outreach director for the Public Interest Law Group and interned at the Center for Children’s Advocacy.
Courtney Spencer helps high achieving men and women create freedom and cultivate resilience in their work and lives. She regales audiences with stories and guidance that uncovers in them tangible relief (that alternatives exist to being chronically busy) and fierce hope that their anxiety can diminish. Her unique skill-set and delivery style, honed from years of advocating for children with disabilities in her special education law practice, allows audiences to see and experience that being a high achiever is possible without sacrificing everything in return for success.
Successfully Integrate Work and Life As a High Performer
It’s no longer possible (if it ever was) to completely separate work from the rest of your life. Courtney shares the inspiring story of what she learned when the effects of crippling anxiety, fueled by years of nonstop busyness, resulted in a health scare that no one could diagnose – and required several weeks of downtime – during which she completely restructured the way she lived and worked. Looking back on that experience as a “life-changing red flag,” Courtney offers deep encouragement and insanely practical advice to move forward, whether your anxiety stems from financial stability, personal relationships, or professional success. When high achievers commit to cultivating resilience rather than “busyness,” it becomes possible to sustain a state of happiness and fulfillment that allows success to feel deeply meaningful and satisfying.
In this highly interactive workshop, Courtney takes participants through her pragmatic, highly effective framework for managing stress and anxiety in the workplace. Blending schools of thought from productivity to psychology, Courtney guides participants to pinpoint what she calls “life-changing flags” that cause them to feel stressed – so they can not only manage stress and anxiety but start to uncover the root cause.
Participants leave with strategies they can implement immediately to handle daily stressors from a proactive rather than reactive perspective.
