½ day – Tuesday, June 9, 2020
With Michelle Anne, MBSR, PCC, Acharya, WOSB
9:00 to 12:00 PM Session
LIVESTREAM and RECORDING AVAILABLE
What few of us realize is that on-going stress, from daily living (i.e. bills, kids, job, change or uncertainty), which we usually ignore or push down, is the very type of stress, when left unmanaged, affects our mental capacity, emotional stability, and overall physical health, including our immune system. Looking through a business lens, stress is of one of the costliest problems for organizations in terms of direct health costs, absenteeism, disability, and performance. Yet, most corporations do very little to address stress levels in employees.
In a recent study, stressed rats’ brains showed shrunken neurons in the dorsomedial striatum (an area associated with goal-directed behavior) and growth in the dorsolateral striatum (related to habitual behavior). Also, the hippocampus—central to learning and memory—is damaged by long-term exposure to stress.
This course begins with a discussion of the how stress affects us at an organizational and personal (mental and behavioral) level. Nearly 50% of the course will be focused on real application of tools that rewire the brain and are scientifically validated to reverse the signs of stress on our body. We will end with an interactive discussion and enlightening wisdom (secrets) on how to address the relationship of external and internal elements to reduce or eliminate future stress. This short course will enhance your performance and improve the quality of your life.
The founder of The Masters Course, Michelle Anne, will walk you through this journey with interactive exercises, scientific explanations, and techniques that she has developed during her 20+ years of study with thought leaders such as Jon Kabat-Zinn, Yogi Amrit Desai, and leading neuroscientists at the American Institute of Stress.
Learn why so many corporations have relied on Michelle to evolve their leadership style, increase innovation and inspire a growth mindset.MEMBERS REGISTER NOW » NON-MEMBERS REGISTER NOW »
