Teleconference Workshops

Master Your Greatest Challenge as a CEO, High Level Executive, or Entrepreneur

As described in my book, Mastering the CEO's Greatest Challenge, you can develop the skills that foster synergy among the often competing and conflicting demands of your career and your personal needs. Hardiness for Hard Times® small group coaching workshops provide the training and support you need to learn the skills to effectively manage work pressures and personal needs to maintain optimal performance.

The result is that you will become more hardy, resilient, and flexible in your management of work and personal pressures. Your investment in the program yields measurable results:

  • Improved reliability, effectiveness, and productivity
  • Greater satisfaction and capacity to persist over the long term
  • Decreased medical costs
  • Reduced "down" days and absenteeism

Targeted Challenges

All the teleforum coaching groups use the methods in Mastering the CEO's Greatest Challenge as the foundation. Special focus groups, as described below, integrate the particular needs noted.

General work stress problems

Job stress is a natural and expected part of the workplace. As you advance in your career, the pressures typically increase. Rather than teaching people to reduce stress, my approach trains you to increase your ability to effectively take on more pressures with less distress. This enables you to improve your performance and advance in your career while increasing your personal satisfaction.

High functioning executives with gaps in crucial areas

Everyone has areas of strengths and limitations. People that are high performing may be unaware of gaps in their performance that affect other important areas.

Coaching can help you groom your capacity to work effectively. The result? Not only is your personal satisfaction increased, but your enhanced performance adds a solid sense of well-being for whatever you undertake.

Stress-related physical symptoms

Symptoms such as migraine headaches, high blood pressure, and digestive system difficulties are often signs of stress. Typically these occur in very high functioning, conscientious people with an exceptional work ethic and impeccable performance.

When distress overwhelms your coping skills, the result is increased physical symptoms, which can undermine performance and cause unplanned absences.

Coaching can help you to cope more effectively with stress for optimal work performance. With my background as a Health Psychologist, I have worked with many individuals with stress-related medical symptoms to meet their goals and function at their best

Medical problems that are a source of stress

Acute or chronic medical problems place special demands on people and often detract from their ability to perform their duties. The challenge is to manage the balance between work responsibilities and personal self care. Coaching provides specialized support that can make the difference between keeping and losing your job.

My Three decades of experience as a Health Psychologist provides me with the broad expertise needed in this coaching specialty.


Coaching Workshops

As a Coach and a Clinical & Health Psychologist, I combine the powerful methods of personal coaching and small interactive groups with stress management techniques to create an approach that gets results.

I help you develop a work ethic and a lifestyle that are truly synergistic. The result is a solid base of health, life satisfaction, and recovery that measurably enhances work performance.

Small teleconference group coaching workshops enable you to systematically step back from your work challenges and gain insights from peers in order to identify and improve:

(1)Aspects of your job where your capacity to manage pressures is less than needed;

(2)Facets of your working style that you want to improve;

(3)Ways to insure that your non-work time provides the restoration needed to re-engage work reliably and effectively.

I consult with you in an individual session to determine your specific needs and the appropriateness of the workshop for you.
