Vistage Speaker: Dr. Rebecca Heiss | Blind Spots To Breakthroughs: Transforming Survive Into Thriv

Dr. Rebecca Heiss is dedicated to helping us overcome our evolutionary limitations - the ancient fears that hold us back, fears that we're often not even consciously aware we have. Her research has been designated "transformative" by the National Science Foundation and it is waking up audiences around the world.


She is currently launching a new self-awareness, 360-review app, called Icueity, to help every individual reach her/his full potential and finishing her new book, Instinct, due to be published in May 2021. She has been honored to speak internationally on her work, including multiple TEDx talks, and has found her calling in helping others recognize the power of biological applications in their lives. She is a full-time speaker and lives in South Carolina with her spoiled rotten dog named Guinness. Every day she tries to live her life motto: "spread happy."


As leaders it’s imperative that we are self-aware. And yet research finds that nearly 90% of us…aren’t. We have to find new ways of understanding our fears, our strengths, our shortcomings, and all of the ways that our brains keep sabotaging us from being the most effective leaders we can be. That’s where Rebecca comes in by providing immediately applicable strategies to intervene with our self-limiting instincts.


No blame. No finger pointing. No guilt...but nevertheless an important deep dive into understanding the instincts that drive us to carry bias and stories that limit our leadership. No matter our background, we all carry some shortcuts and biases about others (and ourselves!). It doesn’t make us bad people – it makes us human! But when we understand the instincts that drive these stories, we can be more effective in intervening before they negatively affect our relationships and performance.


Rebecca weaves together stories from her personal experiences, cutting edge research, and practical takeaways for everyday operations in work and in life. The result is an unforgettable experience that will permanently shift the perceptions of participants and redirect them on a course toward happier, healthier and more productive lives.
