Baseline levels of stress have been kicked up a notch by the daily challenges of the global pandemic – and that Groundhog Day feeling is kryptonite for our mojo.
We all know what to do to reduce the spread of the virus but how can we boost our psychological batteries? How can we make sure we perform at our best during difficult times?
This session provides a quick starter guide on stress and a practical focus on mindset and motivation. With insights from behavioural science and neuroscience, this interactive session will explain some simple steps you can put into practice today to get stress under control and boost performance.
With lessons from Navy SEALs, NBA All Stars and Star Trek.
