Welcome & Introductions
Breakout topic discussions
Amy Yip is a Life Transformation and Mental Fitness coach who works with high achieving, ambitious AAPI women to build their mental fitness, quiet the inner critic, and let go of all the ‘shoulds’ so they can shift from merely surviving to thriving. Ultimately, so they can be seen, be heard and f-ing rock the boat.
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 7 months.
One of her greatest learnings:
Your mindset, NOT your circumstance, makes all the difference in your happiness and success.
Through this lens, she works with clients to find their voice and the courage to speak up, build self-confidence, navigate change, and discover what they REALLY want next in their life and career.
Building Mental Fitness: Strengthening Your Capacity for Empathy, Respect and Inclusion
The more mentally fit you are, the more you’ll be able to handle the stress, anxiety and frustrations that might come from work and personal life challenges. This includes relationships and how you engage with others like your colleagues, partner, children.
Mental Fitness is the X-Factor to transform a workplace culture to one that is thriving: anchored in deep empathy, mutual respect and inclusion. And it starts with us as individuals.
The good news: just like physical fitness, you can boost your Mental Fitness with practice.
During this interactive workshop, we will unpack
- How you tend to self-sabotage with Saboteurs like the Judge, the Hyper-Rational, the Controller, the Hyper-Achiever, the Pleaser and 5 others
- The 3 core muscles at the root of mental fitness
- Practices to build your mental muscles including how to show up with greater empathy towards others
