Stress-Less Leadership: Become the Leader People Naturally Follow

Announcing our 88th Roundtable - February 1, 2024

Scientific research shows that a highly effective way to reduce stress is to give it to someone else. Unfortunately, leaders often pass their anger and frustration on to their followers with micromanagement, mandates, displacement aggression, and other toxic behaviors.

High stress is a direct cause and an inevitable consequence of poor leadership in the workplace. Stress and leadership are intimately connected, but this complex relationship rarely receives adequate attention. In times of increasing uncertainty, possessing efficient stress and burnout management skills separates good leaders from bad ones.

From this Neuroscience-driven, content-rich workshop, you will gain insights into how to deal with stressors rather than tolerate more stress. You will receive proven techniques to increase your team’s productivity and psychological safety. You will integrate stress reduction into your leadership decision-making. You will become aware of negative stress-reducing outlets that cause long-term harm. You will acquire the knowledge to create a more sustainable culture. You will avoid becoming a stressor to your followers.
