Full List of Dr. Martin's - Presentations & Objectives

Moving From Surviving to Thriving: Burnout is epidemic in healthcare and many other professions.  Dr. Martin talks about how common burnout is and the consequences to our personal wellbeing, the organizations we work for and the people and patients we care for.  He shares simple, efficient techniques to combat and prevent burnout and improve our relationships with our loved ones, colleagues, customers, and patients.

Resilient Leadership: This training combines the principles of adaptive leadership, personal and organizational resilience, and gratitude into a powerful day long leadership development curriculum. Participants will gain insights on improving communication through perspective taking, awareness of polarities, and understanding their own personal triggers. They will receive hands on opportunities to develop tools and techniques to build a support system to grow more resilient individuals and teams.

Reconnecting in of World of Disconnection and Social Isolation (or How to Get Your Mojo Back during Covid-19): Since Covid-19, do you feel like you have lost your mojo?  Do you find it difficult to connect with friends, family and colleagues?  When you scroll through social media, do you wonder how people can really think that way?  Do you think that maybe, just maybe, we are more alike than different AND if given the chance, we could once again have meaningful, connecting conversations that would fill our hearts and connect us in ways that we long for?  This talk is a powerful, experiential session based on the principles of the Center for Courage and Renewal that will help you understand how much power and control you have to make a meaningful difference in creating the connected life we all long for.

The Science of Gratitude: Scientists have tied gratitude to greater health, happiness, and more joy in social relationships at home, work, and our communities. Dr. Martin offers the scientific perspective on gratitude and techniques that result in improved health, happiness and longevity.

The Power of Social Connection: The quality of our relationships is best predictor of our long term health, happiness, and longevity.  In this talk, Dr. Martin discusses the importance of relationships and the detrimental effects loneliness has on our communities and our own mental and physical wellbeing.

Mindset Matters. The importance of mindset on stress and wellness: Our mindset and how we approach situations have significant implications for our health, happiness, and patient outcomes.  Dr. Martin talks about the science behind mindset and how our mindset of stress impacts our work, our health and the people around us.

Anatomy of Trust: This talk combines the principles of everyday leadership, personal and organizational resilience into a deep dive into what it means when we say we don’t trust someone.  Participants learn tips and tricks on how to build trusting relationships in their organizations and their personal lives and how that actually leads to less burnout and more meaning and joy in our lives.

Need More Time?: Do you feel like you just never have enough time? This talk combines principles of everyday leadership, personal and organizational resilience, into a powerful session that will help you understand how you sabotage yourself into believing you don’t have enough time in your life. We will get clear on the values that allow you to create time and space for the things that matter and help you build a support system to find joy, meaning and purpose in your life.

BIG (Boundaries, Integrity, and Generosity of Assumption) Principles: This talk combines the principles of everyday leadership, personal and organizational resilience into a deep dive about how our perspective of other’s actions and the difficulty we have setting boundaries and holding people accountable undermine our search for joy, meaning and purpose in our lives.

Letting go of Perfectionism: This talk combines the principles of everyday leadership and personal resilience for a deep dive into understanding the role perfectionism has in our daily lives.  We will discuss the roll perfectionism had in our training, and how it is commonly mistakenly for healthy striving.  We will discuss approaches to combat the negative effects of perfectionism and how to give ourselves permission to let go of unhealthy perfectionistic tendencies and to treat our self with compassion.

The Recipe for Being a Good ______....(friend, leader, spouse, colleague): Do you wish you always knew just what to say? When bad things happen to those around you, are you afraid of saying the wrong thing and so then just say nothing?  This talk combines the principles of everyday leadership, personal and organizational resilience to gain insights about why we do these things and how to overcome them with simple techniques focused on perspective taking, empathy and self-compassion.

A Life Well Lived: In this talk, Dr. Martin discusses the five most common regrets of the dying.  This talk focuses on vulnerability and how to develop a meaningful life with everyday practices that can help you live a life without regrets.

Dare to Lead™: Dare to Lead is an empirically based courage-building program, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown.  Leaders who participate will learn skills for having hard conversations, holding themselves and others accountable, leading with empathy and connection, building trust, giving and receiving feedback, and picking yourself back up quickly after disappointments and setback. This 24-hour workshop, facilitated by Dr. Martin, a Certified Dare to Lead Facilitator™, focuses on courage as a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable.

The Daring Way™: Being courageous and authentic is “in style”.  Yet most of us won’t ever let our guard down and instead of being ourselves, we live each day covered in armor in our workplaces and homes.  These interactive sessions deal with the courage it takes to be authentic and vulnerable and how to get up and rise when you fall.  This workshop is based on the research of Brené Brown, one of the world’s leading experts on courage, vulnerability and resilience.

Audience Reviews:

I think it’s very important for Corey to know he is a precious gift to this work. You have given me tips that I will be using (and already am using) on a daily basis.  Thank you for all you did and for just being open and vulnerable.  Great examples to Brene Brown’s wonderful work.  I know COVID made things a bit frustrating and different.  You did amazing with a difficult situation.  Thank you for still having this retreat during the pandemic, I really needed it.  I hope to see you all at future events!

I loved this conference, really helped me do a lot of soul searching. I really appreciate that Corey took extra time after dinner one night to help those of us who wanted a little extra help. I found this one of the most beneficial things at the conference since I have been doing a lot of wellness work at my current organization.

Corey Martin did an excellent job creating a space for learning with adjustments due to our COVID era. Dr. Martin was able to pivot and make changes which helped our group do self-care during a delightful experience. Corey adapted well to the teaching needs to meet the objectives of this course and provide a student friendly atmosphere for learning.
