Join the conversation as top leaders from the industry discuss how they are driving their businesses forward amid significant disruptions and learn how they are using technology to prepare for what’s next.

Information about the coronavirus seems to be changing by the hour — creating unprecedented uncertainty. There is an excellent reason to feel unsettled, anxious, or jangled.

Under stress, our brains depend on instinct rather than rational thought because the part of the brain responsible for critical thinking is busy dealing with the psychological reaction to stress.

This program is based on Eliz’s new book, Stress-Proof Your Heart, as well as her research on stress.  It offers four implementable strategies to:

  • Shut down the stress reaction and recover
  • Be kind to yourself
