Do Your Audience Have the Skills to Keep Stress Useful?

Useful’s not how most people describe stress.  But as long as the stress someone’s facing doesn’t exceed their resources for dealing with it, those stresses can bring out their best.  The challenges they rise to and grow from, even if they’re not ones they’d have chosen.  The stresses which give them energy instead of draining it away.

Most presentations focus on ways to manage stress.  But whatever method you choose, managing requires doing something differently, consistently enough to maintain the results.  And we don’t always do what’s good for us – so the stress tends to yo-yo.  By working deep inside the thinking, the skills which Sue shares are designed to re-train the brain with new, more helpful habits.  So the results last, without having to keep on doing anything differently.

Introduction to 'Ditch the Fear and Then Do It Anyway'

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!
