Build Resilience To Thrive In Work And Life
Stress is increasingly becoming an issue for leaders in the workplace. Highly competitive marketplaces, longer working hours, and higher performance expectations are all contributing to a more stressful work environment. And the news at home isn’t much better. Digitization and “always on” technology have blurred the boundaries between work and personal life, removing the natural buffer between them and costing us our health. At a time when there is significant anxiety both at home and in the workplace, it is critical for us to understand how our bodies react to stress, why stress is a necessary element of our lives, and how we can better cope with it to become better leaders.
In Taming the Sabertooth: Resilient Leadership in a Stressful World, we are reminded that while we cannot necessarily change our environment, we do have the power to shift our response to that environment by building resilience. With insights that are intensely practical and unapologetically straightforward, we learn that hiding behind a rock is not an option; to thrive in work and life, you have to tame the sabertooth.
