"Stress-Proof Leadership for High-Performance Teams!", Speaker: Eliz Greene, North Region Community Region (Cabarrus & Huntersville)


Topic:  How do you increase productivity and decrease absenteeism?

Presentation Description:  The contagious nature of stress is hardwired. High-performing teams make success contagious too. Eliz Greene interviewed hundreds of leaders and team members for her new book Stress-Proof Your Life. She knows stress management is a HARD skill essential to success. Stress comes from many sources—caring for children or elders, arguing with a colleague, having a leaky roof—that can be stressful, but chronic high stress (the kind that kills) is caused by overwhelm and uncertainty. Identifying the causes of stress and using skills to disconnect and recover is the key to improving wellness, quality of life, and performance.

Learning Outcome:

  • Understand the real causes of stress
  • Learn how chronic stress is corrosive to performance
  • Discover hard skills and leadership insights to support performance and wellness
