Working with Stress and Burnout: Supporting Your Employees to Do Their Best Work


When it comes to stress, this can be both good and bad and sometimes we are unable to make this vital distinction.  To optimize for survival, our brain creates shortcuts called “neural networks.” The more we use certain neural networks, the stronger they get. In brain science, it’s called Hebb’s law. “Neurons that fire together wire together.” – Donald Hebb.

This session enables you and your employees to learn about good stress (eustress) and to explore how reframing stress can act as helpful rather than harmful to reverse the negative physiological changes that it causes. It also enables you and your employees to reconnect with your WHY, your inherent motivations so that these might act as an effective catalyst to thrive.
