Workshop on Leadership, Stress, and Burnout

Scientific research shows that a highly effective way to reduce stress is to give it to someone else.

Unfortunately, leaders have the power and privilege to pass their frustration and anger on to their employees with micromanagement, mandates, displacement aggression, and other toxic behaviors. In the workplace, poor leadership is the most common stressor, while good leadership is the most desired stress reducer.

Dr. Terry Wu brings the Neuroscience of Stress to explain how leaders lead and why followers follow.

He gives leaders science-proven tools to mitigate their stressors. He guides them to help their followers to manage stressors. More importantly, he teaches them how to avoid becoming their followers’ stressors.

The Science of Stress and Burnout Prevention

There are thousands of self-care and resilience workshops out there. But nearly all of them are based on personal experience, anecdotes, or recycled content. They rarely address how to assess or handle stressors. Why are such workshops counterproductive or even harmful? When businesses and organizations require their employees to participate in such mandatory workshops, the hidden message to those employees is, “Your stress or burnout is your problem. So fix it.” When none of those breathing exercises works, employees feel like they are failures.

He gives you practical tools supported by decades of scientific research. More than 2 million people have found his insights fun and relatable.

Neuroscience of Leadership Keynote Workshop Speaker Dr. Terry Wu
Sara Krisher Terry’s workshop was fascinating. The first half of the workshop was lecture-style with incredible research. Terry is a master of his material. He revealed five safety signals we can be strategic about in our lives to mitigate the effects of stress. The second half of the workshop was a facilitated discussion which allowed us to reflect on our own lives. We got to see whether the five safety signals were present or not and consider ideas for stress reduction. My Vistage group invited individuals from their team and they were so happy they did. Every leader needs to know this content. ~ Sara Krisher, Vistage Chair, President of STAND TALL, Public Speaker, and Author
