Managing Stress: Empowering Ourselves & Our Teams
The best leaders take care of their teams—and themselves. Understanding the importance of self-care and having ways to achieve it starts with knowing how your body responds to stressors. Then, you can focus your attention on finding the best stress management technique for you.
We will explore the symptoms and practice techniques to release stress, change our perspective and create an environment where we can thrive, instead of just survive.
Barbara Stevens, Certified Stress Management Consultant
