Dr. Teena Cahill, Director of Wisdom and Beyond LLC, is a former adjunct professor for graduate and undergraduate studies in the Behavioral Sciences and is an internationally respected authority on resilient and positively empowered living and leading… at any age or any stage…at work and at home. She is a contributing member of the LLuminari Expert Network and her comments on resilience and well-being at work and at home, can be found at BeWell.Com-Virtual Social Network, founded by Dr. Nancy Snyderman and Dr. Susan Love.
Teena is a very funny woman who entertains audiences worldwide by combining her "Textbook Knowledge," which includes a Doctorate in Psychology, a Masters in Counseling and a Bachelor in Education, with her entertainment skills, transformational energy, and stories from "Real Life Living." She leaves her audiences laughing, inspired, motivated, and armed with ideas for managing stress without distress, enhancing innate resilience, and building "Positive Empowered Leadership' on a platform of self care.
Teena believes we all need to see ourselves as leaders, and C.E.O's. of our own lives. She knows that if we WANT things to change…we need to know HOW to change them! Teena's presentations show how great leadership, built on a platform of self care and wellness, can lead to transformational CHANGE … at work, at home and in the world. This experienced and highly credentialed boomer, a member of the "Sandwiched Generation," explains that while we cannot control everything that happens in the world… we CAN make a CHOICE as to how we are going to respond! Teena shows that we do not have to be identified by all of the events that happen in our lives…but rather by our POSITIVE response to these events. She teaches how we have the power to reframe how we look at things, see our strengths, and build on what is right…not what is wrong! Her message is relevant from the board room to the living room… and resonates with audiences of any age or position.
Teena's wisdom includes great ideas for enhancing health and wellness, leadership, resilience, happiness, relationships, communication, authenticity, and for managing change in tough times. She custom designs each presentation…. whether to businesses, educators, women's programs, health care or wellness events, aging, personal or professional caregiver programs, those in a world experiencing tough economic times, or those who have been tricked into believing "The Myth of Balance!" Forget balance!" says Teena. Balance only exists in the moment…. skills for resilience and leadership can last a lifetime!"
Her authentic, funny and richly educational presentations combine research from Cognitive Behavioral and Positive Psychology, with stories from her life as a successful businesswoman, mental health professional, mother, step mother, wife, caregiver to her husband Brooks (a former Marine Corps fighter pilot and international airline captain, who is now disabled,) and grandmother to almost a dozen joyful grandkids, Teena's transformational energy makes her the highlight of any event.
