How often, when we encounter a problem, have we caught our ‘ego’ coming in hard and fast driving our reactions and actions? It becomes exhausting, because we continually place ourselves as the center of the action creating 'drama' as victims of micromanaging boss, demanding colleagues, and more.

In this thought-provoking and pragmatic talk, Cy Wakeman, challenges us all to ‘ditch the drama’, take our ‘ego’ out of the picture and reframe what is ‘actually’ happening. When we do that, we refocus our energy and talent. Not only do we find more creative solutions to our world and the challenges we face, but in doing so live happier and more productive lives.

Cy Wakeman is a drama researcher, global thought-leader, and New York Times best-selling author who is recognized for cultivating a counter-intuitive, reality-based approach to leadership. Deemed “the secret weapon to restoring sanity to the workplace,” Wakeman has helped companies such as Facebook, Pfizer, Caterpillar, New York Presbyterian, Catholic Health Initiatives, Eli Lilly, Keurig Green Mountain, and Nationwide learn to navigate our rapidly changing world using good mental processes to harness energy wasted in workplace drama and reinvest that effort into achieving profound business results.
