About the event
Building Mental Fitness: Shift from Surviving to Thriving
- The more mentally fit you are, the more you’ll be able to handle the stress, anxiety, and frustrations from work and personal life challenges. This includes relationships and engaging with others like your colleagues, partner, and children.
Your level of Mental Fitness is the best predictor of how happy you are and how well you perform relative to your potential.
The bad news is that 80% of people score below the minimum level of mental fitness required for peak performance and happiness. The good news is that, just like physical fitness, you can boost your Mental Fitness significantly with practice. With recent neuroscience and technology breakthroughs, you can improve your mental fitness considerably within six weeks of training.
During this interactive workshop, we will unpack
- The three core muscles at the root of mental fitness
- How do you tend to self-sabotage your happiness, well-being, and peak-performance with Saboteurs like
- the Judge
- the Hyper-Rational
- the Controller
- the Hyper-Achiever
- the Pleaser and five others
- How to detect when a Saboteur has hijacked your brain
- Strategies & practices to build your mental muscles so you can intercept and redirect your Saboteur thoughts and actions
During this microlearning, Amy will cover how we self-sabotage ourselves through our saboteurs: the Judge, the hyper-rational, the controller, the hyper-achiever, and the avoided, to name a few. She will also go over the three core muscles necessary for mental fitness.
Our C7 microlearning series focuses on elevating your career through short training modules. The micro-learnings are bite-sized and actionable. Our participants' goal is to "take action" 1-3 immediate actions after an event. This is in a peer setting where participants help hold each other accountable.
About Amy Yip:
Amy Yip is a Somatic Life Transformation and Mental Fitness coach, keynote speaker, trainer, and the author of “Unfinished Business: Breaking Down the Great Wall Between Adult Child and Immigrant Parents” (coming fall 2023).
She works with women of color to strengthen their mental fitness, heal intergenerational wounds, and have the agency to let go of all the ‘shoulds’ so they can be the author of their own life stories. Her mission is to empower all women of color to become the embodied version of themselves.
In January 2020, after 16+ years of building and leading global teams in organizations like Google, Clorox, and Booz Allen, Amy left the corporate world, sold everything, and took a 1-way flight to Ghana with her husband to volunteer at a breast cancer non-profit and travel the world. COVID shifted their plans; they got stuck in Ghana for seven months.
One of her most significant learnings:
Your mindset, NOT your circumstance, makes all the difference in your happiness and success.
Through this lens, she works with organizational leaders, including corporate executives, non-profits, and social entrepreneurs, to find their voice and the courage to speak up, build self-confidence, navigate change, and discover what they want next in their life and career.
Amy is an ICF PCC, Certified Hudson Institute Coach, Certified Strozzi Somatics Coach, and a pioneer Mental Fitness Coach certified through Positive Intelligence. She is also one of fifteen Positive Intelligence Mastery Program Facilitators. Amy holds an MBA from Anderson UCLA, an MS in Communication Technology from Strayer University, and a BS in Computer Science BA in Communications from the University of Maryland.
Amy resides in Maryland with Greg, her best friend and husband, and her son Logan, the cutest kid ever.
