Dangers of Perfectionism and Self Judgment

Arianna Huffington’s Speech Topics

  • Small Steps, Big Leaps: The Art of Thriving in Work and Life

    Chronic diseases and mental health conditions are draining 90% of the US’s $4.3 trillion healthcare budget, exposing the limitations of traditional medical care and emphasizing the need for proactive health management. So, what’s the secret to effectively combating illness and proactively protecting our health? It’s our daily behavior.


    Science shows our behaviors in five key areas — sleep, nutrition, physical activity, stress management, and social connection — are crucial for disease prevention and health optimization.


    Arianna Huffington, founder, and CEO of Thrive Global, shares groundbreaking research and strategies for improving health and productivity through small daily micro-steps that lead to healthier habits because “health is what happens between doctor visits.”

  • Building a Culture of Resilience

    Culture is a company’s immune system. It’s what makes a company resilient and able to navigate times of change and uncertainty. As Thrive Global founder and CEO Arianna Huffington shows, with a strong culture, organizations can thrive even in times of disruption. This includes ways to:

    • Build mental resilience.
    • Create a culture of engagement, meaning, and purpose.
    • Rebuild social capital in a hybrid world.
    • Boost organizational efficiency, productivity, engagement, and employee well-being simultaneously.

    There’s no trade-off between employee well-being and performance. With this roadmap to creating a strong culture of resilience and belonging, companies can thrive through change.

  • The Eye of the Hurricane: How to Lead in an Age of Uncertainty

    Too many leaders still buy into the misguided notion that chaotic times require them to be in constant motion and always on or that they have to match the frenetic pace of the moment. As New York Times bestselling author and Thrive Global founder, and CEO Arianna Huffington writes, “In fact, the opposite is true — the best way to lead a company forward is by looking inward. It is judgment that we need from leaders in moments of crisis, not just stamina.” In this engaging talk, Huffington reveals how leaders can go inward and tap into the innovative and creative ideas that the times demand. 

  • Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder

    Over time our society’s notion of success has been reduced to just the acquisition of money and power. This idea of success can work — or at least appear to work— in the short term. But over the long term, money and power by themselves are like a two-legged stool — you can balance on them for a while. Still, eventually, you’re going to topple over. And more and more people — very successful people — are toppling over. To live the lives we truly want and deserve and not just the ones we settle for, we need another measure of success beyond the two metrics of money and power. In this riveting talk, based on her #1 New York Times bestselling book, Thrive, Arianna Huffington shows how we can create a Third Metric based on well-being, wisdom, wonder, and the power of giving.

  • The Sleep Revolution: Why We Need Sleep and How to Get More of It

    Sleep deprivation has become a global epidemic in an increasingly fast-paced and hyper-connected world, devastatingly affecting every aspect of our health, performance, and relationships. In her New York Times bestselling book, The Sleep Revolution, Thrive Global Founder, and CEO Arianna Huffington offers a sweeping exploration of sleep, from its rich history to the latest science, emphasizing how it can transform our lives. Through personal stories and specific, science-backed tips and recommendations, Huffington addresses the most critical issues with her audience: why we sleep, why we need it, what happens when we don’t get enough, and how to get more – so we can take control of our lives and live more fully.
