Wednesday, May 25, 2022 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. PDT

CEO Self-Sabotage: 3 Steps to Master Your Mind

New York Times bestselling author and Stanford lecturer Shirzad Chamine will show you the 10 ways of CEO self-sabotage based on research with 500,000 participants.

Hear what our speakers have to say about the value you’ll receive from attending:

As CEO, you’re constantly sabotaging both your performance and wellness, without realizing it. That tendency gets embedded in your culture and spreads throughout the company at a great cost.

In this exclusive Vistage CEO Climb Event, you’ll learn neuroscience-based techniques to shift from self-sabotage to self-mastery for dramatic improvements that are often described as life-changing.

During this event you will gain insight on:

  • The 10 most common ways we self-sabotage and which way is yours.
  • The neuroscience of happiness & peak performance and 10-second techniques to activate your “right” mind.
  • How you generate your own stress, and how you can generate peace of mind instead (even in the midst of great challenges).
  • The “Three Gifts Technique” and how to use it to convert failures and setbacks into gifts and opportunities.
  • The mental muscle that gives top performers their edge, and how you can grow it with a few minutes of daily practice.
  • How to educate your team on self-sabotage, and how to improve their trust, happiness, and performance as a result.

Saboteurs are the voices in your head that generate negative emotions in the way you handle life’s everyday challenges. They represent automated patterns in your mind for how to think, feel, and respond. They cause all of your stress, anxiety, self-doubt, frustration, restlessness, and unhappiness. They sabotage your performance, well-being, and relationships.

In this one-of-a-kind CEO Climb Event, attendees will discover the science behind each of these self-saboteurs, as well as the tips and tricks necessary to conquer them.

Before this event, you’re encouraged to take this free assessment. It will be referenced during the event and will add value to your experience.
