Executives, managers, directors and customer service professionals in legal, finance, sales and marketing roles
This two-part half day program* shows participants how to prepare and respond to stress in a way that is both healthy and productive.
Stress happens. It’s a part of life. In fact, stress can be the great motivator, driving us forward to become better at what we do. The trick is to understand the stress and use it as a way forward and not as an excuse to do nothing. This program is designed to help people manage, recover and become more resilient.
Part One – Eye of the Storm: building resilience in a whirlwind of chaos
When chaos swirls around you like a hurricane, do you get swept up in those winds or manage to stay more grounded than most? In this hands-on program, Dr. Jo works with clients to help them to find their own individual path to personal and professional resilience.
Part Two – Into the Storm: Buckling up for transformational change
While stress is often perceived to be a two-step process (it happens and we respond), there are actually five specific steps that flow from one to another. During part two of Dr. Jo’s program, participants learn how to interrupt/change each of these steps in order to transform negative stress into positive outcomes.
*This program is also available as a keynote for larger audiences
Afterward, attendees will be able to:
- Define stress in terms of positive and negative implications
- Practice three coping strategies for managing their stressors
- Describe the five steps in the stress cycle and one way to interrupt/change each of these
