“Living with Uncertainty”
3-part workshop series, beginning March 28, 2017
 —————
This is the vision of a great and noble life:
To endure ambiguity and to make light shine through it; to stand fast in uncertainty; to prove capable of unlimited love and hope. ~ Unknown
————–
 
Here’s a video I made that describes the program, and below you can read the full course description and registration details:
Full Course Description:

Neuroscience has proven that uncertainty is a trigger that throws us into states of threat, fear and anxiety.  Everything we believe about ourselves and the world feels unmanageable when this occurs.

We can control what we think, what we create for ourselves, and take risks outside of our comfort zones.  We can gain valuable experiences that then strengthen our commitments to manifest what we want vs. what we don’t want.

Through Jackie Kellso’s brain-based approach and interactive style, you will be part of a safe, supportive group; receive personalized attention, and discover the power of your higher self to control what’s in your grasp.

This three-part workshop series incudes tools to:

~ Reframe your Fears and Anxieties into Calm Thoughts

~ Understand the Power and Protective Nature of the Brain

~ Shift your Focus away from your Problems towards your Vision

~ Teach you how to Ease into the Discomfort of Not-Knowing

~ Remove Mental Obstacles to Realizing the Opportunities that Await

  • Get you on the Path that will Move your Life Forward

The assertiveness workshop on October 13th entitled, “Speak Up and Be Heard!” was a hit with attendees!  Here’s some great feedback I received:

Emily F. wrote, “Jackie, thank you so much. During one of the practice sessions, I held my partner’s hand and dragged her across the room. At the time, I thought it whimsical and provocative to physically move her from the Passive side (where she’d been all night) to the Aggressive side, and it would help her become more Assertive. We spoke after the seminar and she thanked me and knew I was coming from a good place. Regardless, you helped me realize that what I think is savvy behavior could easily be viewed as aggressive. In hindsight, I will be more mindful of my interactions.


Chris S. wrote, “I have a quick story to tell you as a “thank you.”  You ended the session with a rundown of five steps [towards assertiveness].  In the meantime, for the last two months, I have been trying to get a client to “pull the trigger” and hire me to start a project.  Each time I spoke to him, he would have new ideas and keep postponing his decision.  I realized that he was picking my brain and trying to solve a problem without professional guidance.  During the last call he was all over the place and I gave up hope that I could close the deal.  After attending your class, I gave a lot of thought to this client.  Believe you, I was willing to walk away.  Instead, following your example, I sent him an email (which I rewrote a number of times to get the right tone of assertiveness and clarity).  Lo and behold, he wrote back two days later and we are getting ready to sign a contract!”

On July 14, I delivered my networking seminar  called, “Effective Business Networking:  From Strangers to Allies in Just Three Minutes!” to the to the NY Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.  The event was a huge success and I received some wonderful feedback:
“Jackie conducted a workshop on Effective Business Networking for members of the NY Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. It’s incredible what she accomplished and what we learned in just 90 minutes!  Many of us aren’t quite sure how to approach people we don’t know in networking situations and Jackie provided an excellent “road map” on how to do this. In addition to talking through the various steps with us, she gave us several opportunities to practice what we learned. A little daunting at first, but very effective in the end! Jackie’s presentation style is upbeat and entertaining. She was also very generous with her time and stayed well after the workshop ended to answer questions. I would love to have her conduct another workshop for our group.”

The November 5, 2009 event at Pace University on “Effective Communicating Techniques that Increase Your Network, Generate Business and Get you Hired,” was a huge success!

Dr. Barry Miller, who spear-heads the Alumni Career Services department had been the one to invite me to be a guest presenter.

I have been sharing with my colleagues and hope you will be open to presenting here at Pace again. The skills you teach are vital to our students as well as from other schools. This is an important niche for your offerings.”

Here’s a link to an article on Examiner.com that Dr. Miller wrote about the entire lecture series at Pace University (for which mine was a part) entitled, Branding and Pitching — What I have learned. http://bit.ly/cCEqr

In the article, Dr. Miller credits my work and unique approach, calling it, “Behavioral.” He says that I use a technique, “…whereby you connect to people by asking about them, finding their concerns and trying to help them prior to asking for something for yourself.”

“I just wanted to write a note to thank you for last night’s workshop. You did a fantastic job in conducting a very efficient and effective workshop in less than 2 hours’ worth of time.
