Cynthia Loy Darst, MCC, is a pioneer in professional development, personal development and Executive Coaching. As a past-President of ACTO (Association of Coach Training Organization) and over 20-years as a professional Co-Active Coach, she has actively campaigned to raise awareness of the power of working with a personal or executive coach.
As an in-demand speaker, trainer, content contributor, and collaborator, Cynthia's fingerprint can be felt throughout the industry through her powerful presence virtually, on-stage and in front of the room. At her core, she is fascinated by people. This talk is inspired by the thousands of individuals she has had the pleasure of working with, and the common themes witnessed worldwide.

In her TEDxOlympicBlvdWomen talk, Cynthia Loy Darst answers the question, "How can you feel safe within yourself? Safe from the nasty, loud and whiny thoughts that occur between your ears?" Most of us go through life bullying ourselves or tolerating loud repetitive thoughts that don't seem to go away. When we feel truly safe in ourselves, we can imagine, we can create, we can take risks and have stronger relationships. Her playful, direct talk challenges us each to hear those sometimes destructive thoughts in a new way for the sake of inner-peace and productivity.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
