Bust Your Stress to Boost Success
My co-host, Tara Kachaturoff, and I are delighted to announce that on Wednesday, December 9, 2009, our speaker was Jordan Freeman, MPH (Master of Public Health), author of The Stress Manager's Manual , who will present "Bust Your Stress to Boost Success."
Tense? Anxious? Overwhelmed? Losing sleep? Join the club: 80% recently surveyed by the American Psychological Association say they are seriously stressed by today’s economy, while nearly 30% blame the current financial crisis for keeping them up at night. Stress—whether it’s from money worries, upcoming interviews, travel hassles or rocky relationships—almost always gets in the way of professional success and optimal health. And now is no time for more roadblocks! The great news is that the top strategies for busting stress, sharpening focus and improving sleep are the same ones that increase productivity, strengthen teamwork and get you noticed.
Here’s what you’ll learn in this teleseminar:
• The essential first steps toward reducing stress for greater success
• How to teach stress management techniques to clients
• Specific strategies for preventing and weathering economy-related woes
• Tools to counter the stress of public speaking, confrontation, networking and more
• Tips for dealing with second-hand stress (other people’s behavior that can be hazardous to your health)
• How to keep the stress management going long after the teleseminar is over
