Vistage CEO Climb | Shatter Your Leadership Limitations: Dare to Thrive

Thursday, November 18, 2021 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. PST

Shatter Your Leadership Limitations: Dare to Thrive

Inspired by her TEDx Talk, Dima uses her personal story of transformation as a powerful tool to encourage individuals to face and conquer their internal limitations. This talk recounts the struggles and triumphs of her personal journey with vulnerability and insight that will resonate with each audience member and spark a guiding light for their individual journey of self-discovery and leadership growth.

By addressing internal limitations, such as the fear of failure, worries about being judged, and the pursuit of perfection, Dima dares each individual to look deeper into their own internal limitations and equips them with the tools and inspiration it takes to shatter those limitations and emerge as empowered individuals and leaders.

What will you learn from this workshop on empowerment and leadership?

  • Attendees will be motivated and activated to reimagine their leadership potential
  • Attendees will feel inspired to pursue continued growth as leaders
  • Attendees will examine their personal limitations, then learn the tips and tools necessary to “shatter” them

Dima is Middle-Eastern in her genes and a global citizen in her spirit. Through keynote speech she ignites the untapped potential in individuals across the world, empowering them to shatter limitations and become daring, purpose-driven leaders. Lauded by others for her vivid, effortless story-telling and courageous attitude, Dima harnesses the power of her journey of escaping confinement, crossing continents, and transforming her life’s purpose in order to inspire others to become change agents in their own lives.
