Workplace stress and burnout are a threat to every organization, and neuroscientists agree that we cannot do our best decision-making when our brains are in crisis mode. Understanding the root causes of stress AND the data-driven ways of managing stress in healthy, sustainable ways benefits your people and your organization immediately and for the long term. In this highly interactive session, we do a quick triage of participants’ current stress factors, and use this real-time information to discuss best practices for addressing both acute and chronic stressors. Participants will leave with a personalized plan for stress interventions and ongoing stress management practices that they can use in their personal and professional lives, as well as information to take back to their teams for improved workplace environments and experiences.

Learning Objectives

  1. What is the difference between acute and chronic stress?
  2. How can leaders identify stress in themselves and their teams?
  3. What are the benefits of a formal stress management strategy?
  4. What are ways individuals can manage stress in the moment?
  5. How can organizations create cultures that mitigate the impacts of stress?

This program is ideal for: anyone who is human, works with humans, or has aspirations of becoming human. 🙂
