My easy-to-apply Problem-Solving Framework, Stress Redesign Model, and Personal Capacity Equation have proven to free up mental, emotional, and physical space, allowing you to focus on what truly matters both at work and at home. My message inspires and empowers professionals to minimize repeating moments of angst so that they can spend more time in their optimized zone of performance, productivity, profitability, and personal fulfillment.
That you may be handling your stress quite well and be okay with the constant sacrifice, but do your team members and colleagues feel the same? Are they facing burnout, at risk of going on stress leave, or are they just going through the motions of work wasting a lot of their potential?
I'm curious about your response to these stats:
Imagine the incredible achievements your organization would experience if everyone had a reliable approach to tackling issues related to the human side of work. By adopting a unified language for problem-solving, fostering a revitalized approach to stress, and intentionally deciding how to allocate limited personal capacity each day, your entire team could soar to even higher levels of success.
You only have so much mental, emotional, and physical CAPACITY to DO, THINK, FEEL, and BE each day.
How these limited resources are allocated often falls to long-standing patterns that can leave leaders feeling drained and resentful of their success.
While we're often told that exercise, meditation, and a healthy diet are the solutions to burnout, they're only part of the equation. By redefining your relationship with stress, you can sustain success and still have the energy to enjoy guilt-free time away from work.
THE LIFT UP
A BIT OF MY STORY
Prior to launching my consulting and speaking practice in 2006, I worked as an executive director of a mental health organization, as a newspaper columnist and an avid volunteer serving on various non-profit boards.
Behind the scenes of my thriving business, I was struggling with grief and chronic nerve pain. I was consistently overstressed; burned out. Yet, I did my best to maintain professional appearances. It was exhausting.
My doctor told me I had to "reevaluate my expectations for my life, that I'd never work full time again, never be off pain meditation, and it was time to consider disability."
I knew giving up was not the answer. I left that hospital determined to not let my struggles define my success. Operation Fix My Pain - Fix My Life began...
Frustrated by typical, often trite resilience and stress management advice, I gathered insights from various modalities to formulate my own frameworks. For years, I kept my challenges secret, but I noticed many of my clients had difficult behind-the-scenes stories, too. This inspired me to share my truth and the methodology I created for myself with others.
Today, I share my message through books, media appearances and audience engagements.
During my most difficult time, while my friends were at parties, I was on my couch, fighting through my pain, trying to find the magic answer that would fix my life.
I invested thousands of hours (and still do!) to absorb as much personal and professional development ideas as possible. As I read books and explored countless modalities, I noticed that each idea offered another piece of the puzzle. What I really wanted was a way to wrap a tidy bow around my journey.
I was discouraged that I couldn’t find one modality or one guru to provide a complete answer for a more contented way to live. That frustration ultimately was a blessing because it kept me seeking and discovering more resources, many of which have informed my methodology that I teach today.
You'll notice hints of elements pulled from modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Emotional Intelligence, Mental Toughness, Mindset, Ancient texts, Faith-Based Teachings and others.
My obsession with making the human experience less filled with angst has prompted me to design several frameworks which have been tried, tested and tweaked by me and my clients - and some have been reviewed by medical professionals.
AMONG MY MOST POWERFUL CONCEPTS:
While this list may seem overwhelming at first glance, each model builds on the next. They are easy-to-understand and even better, easy-to-apply! Stay tuned for my next book: The Stress Illusion: Defy The Lies That Keep You Stressed as these will be outlined in full to make them accessible to everyone.
