Being stressed may be a sign of productivity—after all, those seeking success may choose to take on increased workloads, responsibilities and challenges. But stress limits us, too. It wears down our bodies and minds, affecting our well-being while potentially impairing our ability to be more decisive. But what if you could optimize your personal capacity for productivity by redesigning your relationship with stress?
Keynote speaker, author and executive coach Allison Graham knows the challenges motivated professionals face. She also created methods used by top companies to empower executives, leadership teams and staff to build resilient traits while reducing burnout.
The results? Graham’s executive clients and wider audiences alike enjoy tremendous gains in:
- Personal fulfillment
Graham understands that most negative stress is unnecessary. Audiences agree. From media features and authored articles at Fast Company, Financial Post and Global News, among others, to her keynote addresses, emcee duties and coaching services, Graham has helped achievers manage and reduce stress and grow their leadership capacity.
What is Graham’s winning approach for success?
“If you do not do something that actually fundamentally shifts how you relate to all of the challenges that are going on in your life, the destructive stress cycle will intensify.”
Every challenge brings stress. But not all stress is bad. Some pressures may motivate us, keep us on task and even help us improve our performance. Negative stress, however, can wear on our personal health and well-being. Graham’s leadership insights begin with a deep understanding of the difference between positive and negative stress.
Graham is driven by an understanding that much of our angst and mental blocks can be eliminated, and her programs help people to identify, overcome and reframe their relationship with stress. She empowers them with advanced techniques to solve problems that might otherwise leave them feeling drained and less confident. Her approach to challenges improves resilience, reduces burnout and optimizes productivity, encouraging people to learn to better manage multiple priorities while creating more time for personal fulfillment.
Additionally, in the long-term, workplace retention rates rise when we defeat anxieties and create happier professional environments.
