Presentation Objectives:

The old adage, “It’s just work, it’s not personal” is deeply flawed and needs to be changed for companies to thrive. If we want engaged employees, we need to invite their whole selves to work: body, mind and spirit. Business is a personal investment of our time and energy resources, and organizations are primed to support skill development that supports the employee not only while at work, but also at home. This discussion will present a deeper understanding of the impact of stress on health and performance, a realistic and scientifically-supported approach to work/life integration, and specific recommendations for using the workplace as a system to train enhanced resilience through adaptable effectiveness.

Participants will:

  1. Understand the cost of chronic stress on the brain, body and performance
  2. Recognize the primary contributors to perceived stress at work, disengagement and burnout
  3. Identify evidence-based coping factors that improve resilience and adaptable effectiveness and the specific training tools to build new skill sets
