Managing Stress, Work-Life Balance


How to De-Stress, Re-Charge, and Re-Balance Your Life and Work in a Crazy Busy World

With more work, fewer employees, faster changes, and less money, workplace morale, loyalty, and attitude can take a hit.  Negativity can become more common. And comments such as, “It won’t work here … We’ve always done it this way… and …That’s not my job” become more familiar.

And that’s dangerous because negativity defeats you faster than the competition.  Negativity creates a workplace where people may not try as hard, care as much, or succeed as often.

The good news is you can create a positive workplace that is less stressful and more exciting … where satisfaction and fulfillment are the rule, not the exception.

You were by far the most powerful and enjoyable speaker we have ever asked to address our group. For several days following your program, we still continued to talk about and share with others what we learned from the session. When I came back to the office, I heard folks who did not even attend your session talk about the powerful message that you shared. This, Alan, was a real compliment to you. ”
