Keeping Your People at their Best when the Pressure's On

Successful organisations equip their people with the skills for their role. But one of the most important skills your people can develop is often overlooked or taken for granted:  Their ability to deal effectively with uncertainty, challenges and change.

So how do you keep your people on top form? At their best, they can be amazing, but day-to-day pressures, disagreements and worries can easily erode that away. Performance has a lot to do with people’s state of mind.

Sue's talks and masterclasses equip your people to stay at their resourceful best, even through challenges and change.

"Making Wellbeing Work" delivered at the Disrupt HR Conference.  This was a particularly challenging format - exactly 5 minutes, with slides automatically changing every 15 secs. I like to practise what I teach - it was a venture beyond my comfort zone, so the skills I share for keeping stress useful were at the heart of my preparation...  I hope you enjoy watching

I attended a helpful talk by Sue which helped me to consciously reflect on the stress in my work. She discussed helpful techniques for managing both difficult situations and internal struggles that have proved useful already.

Sue has some really insightful and thought provoking ideas, which she delivers in a really engaging and fun manner. Her sessions on addressing stress are fantastic. Would definitely recommend her if you want to address this as an issue.

P Parry, Heritage Lottery Fund

Sue is fantastic! Charming, excellent presentation, warm, has high positive energy, and has practical advice/suggestions. It really helped me start to fix an issue I had for a long time, stress eating, and give me great strategies.

I tested her advice in the same evening and it worked. I still have moments when I am overwhelmed, but going back to what she suggested restores the balance.

Sue is an amazing trainer, speaker and facilitator. I have a short attention span, but Sue’s talk on “Skills to Keep Stress Useful” was was engaging, captivating and intriguing. Her presentation skills are second to none.

The session helped us (me particularly) gain clarity on the biggest drawbacks to managing stress, and the framework for stress success. She impressively kept everyone’s full attention for the entire session - entertaining, yet point driven!
