Deal With It!! How to Stay Calm Under Pressure

It’s not about stress management. That won’t work! It’s not about changing your circumstances. That will only change the scenery. Today, more than ever, you are being asked to do more and more. What it gets down to is how you choose to invest energy. It’s not the hours you work, it’s the value you get from the work you do. Do not, under any circumstances, let someone convince you that it is an easy process - but it is simple. In this session, participants will learn what it takes to stay calm and focused even if they don’t like the circumstances.

Participants will learn:

  • What drives your choices
  • Why distress has the effect it has
  • Why the things that happen to you, while challenging at times, are not the problem
  • The steps to staying calm and productive
  • The thought processes that cause some to thrive and others to collapse
