Abstract: Many people today are experiencing extremely high levels of stress in the workplace. In order to cope with increasing demands people need to learn tools and methods for how they can continue to perform in a sustainable way.
This talk will focus on an approach based on 30 years of academic research into why some people get stressed and others don’t. In our research we have seen that both individuals and organizations can learn to decrease their levels of stress even as levels of pressure increase.
In this workshop, filled with insights from “Work without Stress: Building a Resilient Mindset for Lasting Success“, the latest book from the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), you’ll discover that while pressure is inevitable, stress is something we create.
As a participant, you will:
· Understand the difference between pressure and stress in your own life.
· Learn how stress is created and how resilient people avoid it.
· Explore the results of your personal resilience profile, outlining your approach to dealing with pressure.
· Learn four steps to help you reduce stress and increase performance
