Stress Help for Leaders

Description:

Leaders have a lot of responsibility that often comes with pressure and a sidedish of stress. This course will help upack the elements of stress for leaders and what they can do to handle its impact.

Why is it that two people can ride the same roller coaster and one experiences stress and anxiety while the other experiences joy? Perception!!! Perception determines much of the stress level in our world and is a key to helping us achieve balance. How we deal with that perception is even more impactful in our daily lives. This session will help us find balance in our daily life by employing simple, yet powerful techniques, that will give us more control and power over our stress, anxiety, and burnout as well as our reactions and perceptions to it. One of these techniques is the art of self-coaching, the ability to self-soothe when things get overwhelming. We will learn a multi-step process to develop this skill in a short period of time.

Objective:

  • Leaders will experience how to relieve stress in the session itself, leaving more relaxed and feeling a sense of renewal ready to implement these strategies in their and their employees everyday life.
  • Leaders will learn a multi step self-coaching method and have the opportunity for practice

Teams That Work!

Description:

Everything on a team happens as a result of conversations. What we do in conversation and how we use it as a tool determines what we will get in our work relationships especially in our team relationships. The more we see language as a tool the more we will be able to use it to our advantage. The way we use the tools of language with each other will determine the effectiveness of the team. This session will help outline how to use not only language, but time and structure to create teams that work!

Outcome:

What participants will take away is the ability to use language in a more powerful way, specifically to make more powerful requests, deal with team issues, and interpersonal concerns . Participants will not only learn to do this with words, but with their body as well. As a result participants will feel more comfortable confronting difficult issues, creating more productive outcomes, and feeling more comfortable with one another. This combination will allow them to walk away with new skills they can use in any aspect of their life.
