When you can relate to someone, you want to work with them, you want to do business with them, you want be around them. It is a key pillar in happiness and will be told through a series of stories, featured in the updated paperback release of Dave’s bestselling book: Happy is the New Healthy.
The research shows that when our priority is to project strength, we tend to alienate others. The way to influence—and to lead—is to begin with warmth, to be relatable!
In his speech, Dave will share examples of people who thrive on relatability and what we can learn from them to make ourselves more connected and more relatable at work…and at home.
It's Not a Myth
Professional Success AND Personal Happiness
The common myth is that we can measure out our time and achieve balance. But the reality is, meetings go long, our partners get frustrated, we feel like we are not spending enough time with our kids, and we are stressed to the bones keeping up with the everyday demands of life. Is there a solution? YES! Based on his 15 years of expertise focused on improving present moment awareness in modern culture, David Romanelli shares the secret to overcoming the overwhelming demands of life. When you are with your kids, be with your kids! When you are with your clients, be with your clients! When you are taking "me time," be with yourself! Dave will teach skills rooted in the ancient world that will enable listeners to overcome distraction and be fully present to improve productivity, likeability, mental health, and overall happiness at both work and home.
The Secret Power of Chocolate
Getting Through Daily Stress with Daily Indulgences
Research shows that happiness comes from frequency of positive experience rather than the intensity of positive experience. Based on his highly acclaimed work with chocolatiers, chefs, and musicians, David Romanelli will share how the small victories are the keys to overcoming stress, improving focus, and enhancing balance. By inspiring listeners to rejuvenate their sensory perception (there's no app for touch, taste, and smell), laugh out instead of lash out (humor heals!), and develop a keen sense of gratitude, David shares a foundation for health and happiness that cannot be learned at the doctor's office or in a health book. Life's greatest moments are not emails or photos. Such moments must be felt, touched, and tasted. David will leave listeners with the passion to lead deeper, fuller, richer lives.
Happy is the New Healthy…and the New Successful
Inspired by his new book Happy is the New Healthy, David will emphasize that true health is not strict dieting and vigilant exercise. While those play a role, the deep secret to living well is resilience, humor, and joie de vivre. Dave will share tips and tools rooted in positive psychology, inspired by Ancient Eastern wisdom, yet relevant to the demands of modern business and life. Listeners will leave with the refreshing reminder that happiness is not found exclusively on Sundays or vacations, but in the simple pleasures we celebrate each and every day.
