She is currently launching a new self-awareness, 360-review app, called Icueity (www.icueity.com), to help every individual reach her/his full potential and finishing her new book, Instinct, due to be published in March 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.
Break through barriers to optimal performance.
Build self-awareness and fear(less) culture.
Drive your company to be more profitable and productive.
Our brains believe the stories we tell them. Without conscious effort, they are negativity seeking missiles, but we have the power to change that. Science demonstrates that more positive people enjoy better relationships, higher quality of life, improved health and longevity, and they far outperform less optimistic peers at work with increased sales, promotions, and engagement. Optimism is a lucrative investment for every organization. Rewire your brain to optimize the power of positivity!
Understand how negative thought patterns decrease productivity.
Adopt a common external enemy to decrease internal conflict and squash ANTs (automatic negative thoughts).
Increase and enable positive communication, ideation, and creative collaborations.
No blame. No finger pointing. No guilt.Fear(less) diversity is all about understanding the instincts that drive us to carry bias.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.
Learn how to neutralize fears that lead to ineffective decision making.
Understand the root of subconscious bias and stories that lead to unproductive behaviors.
Engage with comfort in the language to talk about what is often a highly difficult conversation.
“Rebecca’s keynote was dynamic, thought provoking and action inspiring. It resonated with me and our team in such positive ways, causing us to really look at the blindspots and specific ways to create behavior change in both our lives and businesses. We received more positive feedback from her talk and requests for a copy of her talk than any of the other speakers.”

By being “real” and entertaining at the same time, Dr. Heiss inspired us all to not “let fear hold us back”. Just remembering that one quote has given us all the confidence to keep pushing forward. The positive energy that Dr. Heiss created in the room was the perfect start for the SC Women’s Business Summit.
