Stress Less: How to Minimize Stress & Maximize Potential (Half Day) Virtual or In-person


Are you feeling stressed at work, at home, or both? If so, you’re not alone! According to the Center for Disease Control, stress levels in American workers are at an all-time high. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way.

In this workshop, we will explore stress in the workplace – what causes it, how to recognize it, and how to deal with it. We will also explore happiness – we will shed light on what makes us happy and how we can lead more fulfilling, satisfying lives at work and beyond.

You will leave with a personalized toolkit to minimize stress that you can begin implementing immediately.
