Uncovering the Secrets of Why People Follow

Dr. Wu asks hard questions that don’t attract much attention. Why didn’t the multibillion-dollar leadership training and development industry prepare leaders to face the pandemic?

He provides leaders with a new lens to examine leadership. His framework precisely predicts and explains leaders’ and followers’ behaviors.

Cathy Fitzhenry I had Dr. Terry Wu speak with my Vistage CEO board on the topic of STRESS and how it is different post-pandemic. In very simple terms, He covered how short-term stress builds up quickly and turns into chronic stress and burnout. My board members wanted to know why some of their A+ employees are now performing at a C- level. Terry answered this question and gave my members a unique lens to know exactly what causes this issue. He presented a science-powered framework for leaders to mitigate stressors effectively for themselves and their teams. He explained the science behind 5 psychological safety signals and how leaders can proactively create those signals. His framework is not only easy to understand but also very practical in both life and business. He gave me and my members a fresh perspective to look at how leadership and stress are intertwined. His amazing workshop will benefit leaders of all levels. ~ Cathy “Fitz” Fitzhenry, Vistage Chair, Author, and CEO Coach
