Re-think stress.

Build resilience. Thrive under pressure

We hired Akash for our Asia-Pacific, European and North American conferences and he was a big hit! His session was exactly what we needed. I would highly recommend his programs - our team could not get enough.

Increase Resilience.
Re-Think Stress Management.

We live in a rapidly changing world, where there are a lot of pressures and demands on employees.

  1. How does your team respond to stress?
  2. How do they deal with adversity?
  3. How resilient are they in the face of change?

The traditional approach to stress has been to look for ways to reduce it. Stress is seen as the enemy; as something that needs to kept to the bare minimum.

But the new research on stress and resilience is showing us that your mindset about stress is as important as the stressor itself. When you reframe your mindset about stress, you can actually thrive under pressure.

Rethinking stress and increasing resilience directly leads to:

  • Lower burnout
  • Increased drive and motivation
  • Greater agility and ability to change
  • Higher capacity to deal with challenges
  • Increased engagement at work
  • Perseverance in the face of challenges
  • Positive attitude

How do you move the needle?

We live in a high-pace world where there are more and more demands being placed on teams.

Many employees work late into the night and find themselves with little or no energy, time or motivation for any wellbeing habits. Self-care is the last thing they have time for.

So, how can you move the needle? How do you create lasting behavioral change? How can you help your employees adopt a high-performance lifestyle that will increase their wellbeing, resilience, and happiness - all while keeping in mind their personal priorities and time constraints?
