Resilience @ Work (MIT Sloan Career Series #8)

How to lead in tough times with breakthrough thinking & speaking, plus a powerful story

Recognize any of these situations? 

  • A tough economic climate has everyone rattled
  • A salesperson's productivity drops after a key account goes sour
  • Associates become disengaged because "everything around here keeps changing"
  • A CEO wakes up at 3 a.m. and can't get back to sleep

What do these situations have in common? Thinking.

According to experts, you have 60,000 thoughts a day. That makes it hard to focus. These thoughts include not only new ideas, but also mental chatter - words, pictures, daydreams, worries, hopes and so on.

Everyone else, of course, has 60,000 thoughts too.  That makes it hard to capture attention. Ever notice, when you're trying to lead, motivate, influence, persuade, or inspire others - it's hard to break through?

In this program, based on Paul Hellman's latest book, "Naked at Work (and other Fears): How to Stay Sane When Your Job Drives You Crazy" (Penguin), you'll learn practical techniques that can be used both personally and professionally to boost results with breakthrough thinking and speaking.

Learn how to:

  • avoid three major thinking traps
  • recharge your brainpower throughout the day (in a minute or two)
  • increase your confidence in tough situations
  • create purpose for yourself and others
  • communicate a dynamic leadership message that energizes performance

Discover how to manage yourself & lead others with a powerful story.

Paul Hellman is a consultant, author, commentator, and  founder of Express Potential.
