In her upcoming book, The Karma of Success: Spiritual Strategies to Free Your Inner Genius (July 2023) and in her keynotes, Liz Tran explores how to find career success through a spiritual tool kit that is based on ancient sources wisdom like Zen, Reiki, the Tao, and Buddhism. She speaks to a new world where perks and prestige have taken a back seat to values and meaning, and offers a new and timely playbook for reaching one’s greatest potential. She grounds her lessons in the Four Pillars of Spiritual Strategy—inquiring inward, manifesting mindfully, enriching your energy, and becoming brilliant.

Tran cautions us against approaching our careers with a “mechanical work” mentality (following the prescriptions given by peers, colleagues, and society) that often leads us to becoming overworked, burnt out, and unfulfilled. Instead, she advocates for “intuitive work” (following our inner voice or gut feeling) to find success, happiness, and fulfillment in both our professional and personal life. A big believer in post-work, Tran provides concrete takeaways that employees can practice beyond the workshops to continue building a foundation for personal growth.

Cultivating Unshakeable Confidence
Liz Tran breaks down the myths about confidence. Confidence is not something you're born with, but rather, something you invest in and nurture. It is not tied to success or earned through external validation but something you build up from within. In this educational keynote, drawing from studies from the psychology of human performance and personal stories, Tran shares her methodology of developing true self-confidence. She provides two powerful tools for the audience to build confidence: Top Ten and Self- Gratitude. Through practice exercises, Tran teaches her audiences how to fill up the balance on their confidence account so they can deal with any situations despite doubt or fear.
Burnout and the Great Resignation
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many employees have either voluntarily resigned from their jobs or engaged in quiet quitting. To tackle burnout, Liz Tran redefines what it means to be happy at work. Casting away the misconception that money, title, or power are what makes us happy with our career, she shares the most important aspect - finding purpose. In this interactive and impactful talk, Tran discusses how everyone's purpose is unique and helps the audience define what their purpose profile is with the "Life Wheel." She teaches them how to build on areas that make them feel fulfilled and identify those areas detracting from their greater purpose and motivation.
Every person is born with an Inner Genius. It’s the part of you that’s infinitely smarter, wiser, and more creative than you realize. Your Inner Genius always knows what to do, even if you don’t consciously realize it. When you connect with your Inner Genius, not only do you generate your greatest work, but you also do it in a way that is easy, enjoyable, and energizing. In this keynote, Liz Tran walks the audience through the history of this concept and gives examples of role models who used their Inner Genius to achieve their goals. She provides tools to aid them with reviving their Inner Genius and harness their intuition to make wise and powerful decisions. From creating the right environment using the Four S’s (Self-Awareness, Silence, Stillness, and Solitude) to utilizing the four Spiritual Strategies (inquiring inward, manifesting mindfully, energy resilience, and becoming brilliant), Tran helps audiences find the wisest mentor they will ever met— their Inner Genius.
