Ross Bernstein

Author, Hall of Famer, Speaker

Ross' program is all about the DNA of what makes champions in sports so unique and how that relates to business. Based on his research, he concluded that the same metrics and characteristics that were common among champions in sports, were also common among peak performers in business. Ross mixes his love of sports and story-telling to share his core message--the simple fact that we like to do business with people who we trust, who we like, and who just “get it” — CHAMPIONS.

Imposter Syndrome


Do you ever hear a little voice in your head saying, “I’m not ready. It’s already been done. I just got lucky. Do I know enough to be here?” If any of these sound familiar, then you have been impacted by imposter syndrome. These fraudy thoughts influence how you show up in your career, from pursuing a new client or leadership role to speaking up in meetings and sharing new ideas.


The good news is you can do something about it! In this interactive webinar we will discuss how imposter syndrome impacts you, the structural and cultural reasons you experience it, and practical tools you can use immediately to manage imposter syndrome so it doesn’t hold you back in your career, including how to:

  • Quiet your inner critic

  • Recover fast when doubt and imposter syndrome strike

  • Act even when you don’t feel confident

Diversity & Inclusion Workshop: Another Seat at the Table


Now, more than ever, companies, organizations, teams, and businesses of all sizes are seeking solutions. The one area for which every company needs a solution, regardless of industry or size, is in the area of Diversity & Inclusion.


Why is this? Well, aside from the obvious moral reasons, it is becoming more and more strikingly clear that there is a direct link between having a diverse and inclusive workforce/environment and having a growing, robust organization.


The Another Seat at the Table workshop will help EACH PERSON identify...

  • Their own role

  • What motivates them

  • What their self-talk is (and how that may positively or negatively affect their contribution)

  • What change-driven actions they can take right away to make a difference
