Training & Keynotes

Manage Any Challenge

Stress thrives when it operates under the radar and is allowed to drain brains, bodies, and productivity uncontested. This training provides tools to identify, reframe, and manage stress, so your team is no longer at the whim of default fight-or-flight.

They learn that stress undermines decision-making, planning, and rapport, and drives emotional exhaustion, and that they can make adjustments to how they think, so stressors don't set off the ancient survival equipment.

The training gives workshop participants a variety of the best, proven processes and techniques to manage stress as it pops up, building coping resources, resilience, and the ability to take on any challenge.

Stress causes 40% of worker turnover (Hoel, Sparks, Cooper). Costs for stressed workers are five times higher than for the average employee (Goetzel). This session gives your group powerful tools to manage this toxic saboteur and stay calm under pressure. Click here for stress program inquiries...

Cut the High Cost of Stress 

IN AN ALWAYS-ON WORLD, stress is surging, and so is its impact on productivity, engagement, health, and bottom lines. 

The cost of stress-related absenteeism, sick leave, lost productivity, and employee turnover is a staggering $407 billion a year, reports U. C. Irvine researcher Peter Schnall. The health tab for employees with high stress is 46% higher than others. That's not counting the cost of conflicts, mistakes, and unengaged employees (28% less productive).

The good news is that managing stress is not expensive. For less than the annual stress costs for one employee (an average of $5,000), you can equip your whole staff with tools that build coping resources. When the danger signal is turned off, the stress response stops in 4 minutes.

Manage the Stress Default

OUR STRESS MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS teach your employees how to turn off the danger signal of a brain that wasn't built for the social stressors of the modern world. They learn how to manage key demands, so demands don't manage them, such as:

• doing more with less

• crazy-busy schedules and information overload

• high demands and multiple responsibilities

• the always-on cycle of responsiveness

• intense emotional work and burnout

Build Resilience and Coping Capacity

PROVEN STRESS MANAGEMENT processes, the right coping resources, and smarter work strategies can dramatically reduce stress, because the vast majority of it is preventable.

Stress management keysJob stress is triggered when a demand, or stressor, threatens to overwhelm capacity to cope. A deadline, something someone says, a setback on a project—any number of demands can set off stress. When the response is activated, an ancient part of the brain believes it's a life-or-death moment.

Unfortunately, the effects of this mistaken alarm are very real. Stress destroys employee engagement, drives conflict and mistakes, interferes with complex decision-making, and physically weakens your team. It suppresses the immune system, increases the bad cholesterol, and decreases the good kind. Stress can lead to heart attacks, strokes, back pain, IBS, insomnia, depression, and a long list of serious health issues that undermine engagement and productivity.

Turn Off the Danger Signal

WE TEACH YOUR STAFF how to reframe the danger signal driving the false alarm. We give them actionable strategies to resolve stress with the best cognitive, behavioral, and physical techniques. Participants get tools to:

• Identify and reframe stressors
• Build resilience
• Control crisis mentality and false urgency
• Deploy the most effective stress management practices

Stress Is Contagious

Stress management by managing reactions

Stress is highly contagious, and is easily passed along through departments and organizations. It subverts intellect, puts emotions on a hair trigger, makes it hard to plan or see the big picture, and sets off a cascade of medical bills. Studies show stressed-out employees are more likely to be absent from work and spend 26% more on physicians.

Our stress management programs build the skills and practices essential to control job stress.
