Strengthen Leadership by Reducing Burnout

Resilience training endlessly promotes the false idea that we all have unlimited tolerance for stress.

Chronic stress and burnout result from prolonged fear, uncertainty, and social isolation. Poor leadership is the most common stressor in the workplace. In these tumultuous times, overemphasizing self-care and resilience shifts the responsibility of reducing stress and burnout from leaders to followers.

Dr. Terry Wu brings Neuroscience to guide leaders in handling their and their followers’ stressors better.

He gives leaders science-proven tools to mitigate the unwanted impacts of stressors and avoid becoming their followers’ stressors. He offers a new scientific perspective on the intricate relationship between leadership and stress. He helps leaders and followers navigate times of high burnout by going far beyond self-care and resilience.

Keynote Speaker: The Science of Stress Management

This keynote is the talk of our time. Everyone will benefit from learning effective stress management techniques. A large body of scientific research has shown how to find safety signals even during tough times. However, the science of stress reduction is very complicated. Few speakers on this subject can explain the science to a general audience and make it understandable and actionable.

The human brain is ill-adapted to handle chronic stressors. The post-pandemic chaos, job insecurity, high inflation, and toxic work cultures can all set off our fight-or-flight responses. As a result, our physical and mental well-being suffers. We are facing a mental health crisis. If leaders fail to stay proactive in tackling these problems, decreased productivity and increased burnout will be inevitable.

This keynote is NOT a generic resilience talk that tells you to practice yoga or meditation. It doesn’t ask you to reframe your unfortunate situation as a growth opportunity.

Leaders are scrambling to find ways to reduce high burnout in the workplace. However, most stress management and burnout prevention information doesn’t teach us to handle stressors more effectively. We often can’t tell what is scientifically proven and what is not. Even worse, what works for some may harm others.

As a renowned Neuroscientist and enthralling speaker, Dr. Terry Wu excels at bringing science to everyday practices. His interactive and enthralling talks will change how you view stress and how you can gain control over it. He has spoken at many businesses and organizations. His audiences love how he translates complex science into everyday practice through his entertaining speaking style.
