educator and author

AM Keynote

The Authentic Leader – The Skills, Tools, and Language of Courage

Justine introduces the Dare to Lead™ curriculum, a courage-building program for leaders. Daring leaders know how to have hard conversations, hold themselves and others accountable, lead with empathy and connection, and give and receive feedback—even when it’s tough.

PM Keynote

Courageous Resilience – How to Rise from Difficulty, Manage Emotions, and Move Forward in a Healthy, Authentic Way

Justine speaks about how brains are wired for comfort, and how they fill in blanks with ideas and stories that may not be helpful. By pausing to reevaluate these stories, HR leaders can increase self-awareness and respond rather than react.
