The Resiliency Series: 6 workshops

5-time TEDxTalk presenter Alex Sheen

Imagine the practical wisdom you would gain from 10,000 face-to-face conversations about what it takes to persevere through adversity.
Alex Sheen, the Founder & CEO of because I said I would, has traveled the world to gain that perspective. This range of personal experiences has made him a trusted guide in helping others align their actions with their words and more importantly with their values. The Resiliency Series is a collection of habits and tactics that help attendees face challenges and honor the promises they have made to their families, communities, causes and even to themselves.
During each of these 45-minute livestream workshops, all cameras are on. Alex engages directly with the audience members through conversations, text chat, interactive polls and he even gives away prizes 🙂

Livestream Workshop Topics

  1. Because I said I would: The Importance of a Promise
    Because I said I would is an international social movement at the forefront of shifting how the world views commitment and accountability. The organization was founded by humanitarian and five-time TEDxTalk presenter Alex Sheen. With over 12.8 million Promise Cards distributed, this cause has played a unique role in changing lives around the world. Join this session to hear Alex’s inspirational story and the life lessons that come from promises made, kept and broken.
  2. The Nature of Time: Controlling the Most Precious Resource in an Unpredictable World
    People often say “You should make time for what’s important.” Unfortunately, time cannot be made, but sometimes we act as if it could be. We all struggle with balancing our schedules and maintaining our priorities. Join this session with Alex Sheen, Founder of because I said I would, to hear interesting perspectives and practical advice on how to manage the most valuable resource we have. TIME.
  3. Leading by Example: The Four Type Self-Control
    Self-control is often talked about as if it was a monolith, but there are actually four different types of self-control. Join Alex Sheen to learn about the differences between these capabilities and audit your strengths and weaknesses. Learn interesting habits that can help you live a more balanced and disciplined life.
  4. Limiting Beliefs & The Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
    The world is full of forces that limit human potential. Many of those forces are real; some of them are self-imposed. In this session with Alex Sheen, you’ll learn how to identify the four most common types of negative thoughts and how to stop them before they turn into self-fulfilling prophecies.
  5. Trust & Communication: How Promises Build and Break Relationships
    As an expert in accountability, Alex Sheen is often asked “How do I rebuild trust after it’s broken?” While there are tactics that can help in many cases, there are many instances where trust cannot be repaired. People can decide to disconnect from you and never return. That is why it’s so important to understand the mechanics of how communication and trust work together. Join Alex Sheen to hear interesting perspectives gained from talking to thousands of people about the promises in their lives.
  6. Code of Honor: How to Make Better Decisions Faster
    If you ask scientists how they approach problems, they would say “The Scientific Method.” That process helps them make better decisions, but what does the average person use in everyday life? Do we use a decision making tool like that or just kind of “wing” it? In this session, you’ll learn about creating your own decision-making tool and the habits that pair with that device.
