with MaryBeth Hyland


Connecting with you and your intentions for your upcoming all-hands team-building day was a gift. It is abundantly clear you care about your people and their well-being.

With recent changes in your organization and team members scattered across different states, bringing people together, releasing stress, and leaving them feeling inspired by this inaugural all-hands team-building day is necessary.

We heard that success for you means :

  • Increased connection across departments for employees

  • Feel like they are part of the team

  • Connected to the bigger organization

  • Feeling recognized, supported, and inspired for their future within the organization

  • Having a fun and energizing experience

  • Learning tangible tools to empower people to improve their mental health, negativity, and mindset obstacles.

  • Given these intentions, I am wholeheartedly confident we can make a lasting impact together.

    Below are more details on how we might partner with you to make your vision a reality. We look forward to continuing the conversation.

    Permission to Be Human Keynote

    How to Create A Thriving Values-Driven Culture

    What if your team wasn’t drained because they’re doing too much, but rather doing too little of what reflects their values?

    People crave connection, belonging, and purpose at work, but sadly that’s far from the norm for most organizations. In fact, less than 1O% of companies with core values, operationalize them to be more than just a poster on the wall – missing the opportunity to ignite authentic motivation and engagement at work.

    So instead of breading an environment of disconnected, disengaged zoomed-out zombies, learn the process and skills that it takes to create a thriving people-first environment starting with yourself, then your team and company at large.

    In this entertaining and interactive presentation filled with fun research and a proven values-alignment framework, MaryBeth Hyland, best-selling author and global consultant, will inspire your audience to give themselves and others, permission to be human at work, unleashing higher productivity, profit and purpose through shared values.

    Are you ready to stop pretending we’re robots and start giving Permission to Be Human at work so that you can create a thriving values-driven culture?

    Attendees Will:

    ✅ Relate, empathize, and set boundaries with culture killers and culture keepers at work

    ✅ Identify where their core values are being experienced or violated within their team

    ✅ Learn how to slow down, reflect, and realign to reduce stress and increase connection

    ✅ Gain a framework to start their inner leadership journey to create a conscious thriving culture

    Ground in Your Values Breakout Session

    Release Stress and Ignite Alignment

    77% of us are reporting that we’re burnt out! It’s time to take control of your well-being and reduce your stress by grounding in your values.

    Purpose & Objective: 

    During times of anxiety, stress, and burnout, core values are the grounding force that eliminates those feelings of overwhelm so that you can serve yourself and those around you. 

    Whether you realize it not, you are a walking, talking, living, loving, breathing set of values. From the job you choose to the clothes you wear to the people and experiences you enjoy — your choices are a reflection of your values. When those values are violated, stress is the result, and when they’re activated, you feel alive! 

    So when you know how to intentionally activate your core values, incredible power, energy, and freedom become possible for you with ease and grace. 

    This workshop will teach you how to own your core values* and harness them as a compass to stay grounded, connected, and aligned so that you can start and end the day feeling filled and not drained.

    *Can be customized to the shared core values of your company. 

    Attendees Will:

    ✅ Learn how their energy is filled and drained based on values alignment and disconnect

    ✅ Identify one to three core values that can serve as stress relief

    ✅ Ignite new values-based mindfulness practices to intentionally activate core values

    ✅ Gain practical tips and tools to embody core values from a place of empowerment and possibility each day.
