FROM OVERWORKED, OVERWHELMED AND OVERSTRESSED

To On FIRE, On PURPOSE and On Your GAME

TUNE UP YOUR CHEMISTRY TO GET FROM “OVER IT”…TO “ON IT

Have you noticed that stress is crippling your employee’s performance at work? (Not to mention their life at home?)

HERE'S WHY

----------------------------

People think they can reduce their stress.

But have you ever met someone who is having responsibilities taken OFF their plate right now? I haven’t!

Life is additive. If you’re like most people, then your job, your kids, or your life is not going to ask LESS of you. So it’s not about, “How to reduce my stress?” It’s, “How do I become more resilient in the face of it?”

People think stress is just something that happens in their heads.

Stress is not a psychology problem - it's a chemistry problem! Many people think “I should be able to think my way out of this stress. I can reframe it. Do some breathing...try a visualization." What they don’t realize is that these solutions only treat the side effects. 

The chemistry of stress blocks the rational, thinking part of your brain, so you don't even have access to traditional, cognitive "stress management" techniques.

People think they can ignore it, and one day it’ll go away. 

We’ve all heard it : “I just have to get through this, and then things will get better.”

“This” being the project, summer break, COVID, Q2, etc... We think after “this” we’ll have the time to exercise, cook better meals, take care of ourselves, prioritize what’s important.

But the only time we have is now, so isn’t it more important to focus on what we can do now, instead of wasting time on “someday” without a guarantee?

People think stress is their fault and they’re the failure.

Have you ever made a bad investing decision? You invested too soon? Too late? In the wrong thing? It sucks, but you know you were doing the best you could with the information you had.

Right now, most of the people in your company are stressed and believe their inability to deal with it is their fault. They think the fact they can’t successfully adapt and change makes them a failure! But they’re just doing the best they can with what they have until you introduce them to a new way. 

"The inability to overcome stress is NOT a personal shortcoming. It’s not your fault. It’s a chemical problem that’s baked into our hardwiring. We’re all this way and you’re not the only one who can’t figure it out."

The MOST effective way to go from over it to on it is to take control of your chemistry with 60-second micro strategies.

THAT'S WHERE JENNY COMES IN.

Imagine employees who...

  • Are are more productive than ever backed by strategies to thrive in moments of uncertainty
  • Say, “I can’t believe how much these resiliency strategies are improving my focus, mindset and productivity!”
  • Actively use 60 second Micro Strategies to tame the stress monster when it’s small.
  • Communicate in a shared vocabulary on how to ask for support when stress occurs.
  • Hold each other accountable to creating the work/life harmony they desire.
  • Are free from the guilt that comes from believing stress is their fault.
  • Publicly appreciate the company for investing in their ability to handle stress in the age of COVID. Hello, Glassdoor!
  • Vote their company the “Best Place to Work”.

Imagine a leadership team that...

  • Has solutions that improve employee commitment, performance and engagement.
  • Models the work-life harmony they encourage their employees to find.
  • Develops company culture that’s supportive of the whole human, and they never want to leave.
  • Hires because the company is growing (not because people are leaving due to burnout.)
  • Is creating a culture where employees feel valued and appreciated, and that they matter.
  • Holds each other accountable to the standard of the company they seek to create.
  • Smiles on performance goal evaluation day: Employees are working on what’s important, not just urgent, and it shows!

WHAT CLIENTS SAY:

MEET JENNY  

▶ MEET JENNY  

RESILIENCY Rx:

STRESS-PROOF YOUR BRAIN & BODY

 

The stress you’re feeling is not a psychology problem, it’s a chemistry problem - and it’s easier than you think to fix! 

With a forehead-smacking paradigm shift, Jenny will explain how to get the chemistry of stress to work FOR YOU instead of against you.

 

"Macro results come from the micro! Shrinking things down into Micro Strategies works with the biology of how your brain is designed to function best, rather than the ALL-IN, overwhelming, ineffective mentality that’s so often preached."

The following 5-Part Resiliency Series can also be done as standalone options. 

PART 1

Micro Bursts: Your Pharmacy For Stress in 60-Second Doses

Managing or reducing stress isn’t possible, so instead, we can learn how to be more resilient to the stress we all face - 60 seconds at a time.

  • Get Play It Out: how to use the stress response to their advantage. 

PART 2

Micro Beliefs : From Overworked, Overwhelmed & Overstressed to On Fire, On Purpose & On Your Game

After this keynote, your team will...

  • Connect the power of purpose with chemistry, resiliency and engagement, so that productivity and balance hit new heights.
  •  
  • Clearly define what professional and personal success means to them.

PART 3

Micro Climates : Optimal Defaults...the Way That Requires No Will

Why is behavior change so darn hard?! We get it - change, innovation, flexibility, adaptability are important. (Duh.) But what’s with the gap between KNOWING and DOING?  This session eliminates those gaps completely! (So prep for your most productive quarter yet.) 

After this keynote, your team will...

  • Use neuroscience to hack their way to easy, positive, lasting once-and-for-all change. 
  • Understand why willpower is not a reliable tool for making change.
  • Make small tweaks to their environments that nudge them into new, more desirable behaviors.

  • Explore how to create Micro Climates conducive to change in all areas of your life: Optimal Defaults.
  • Receive over 100 ways to successfully implement change and the secret fool-proof strategies to making these changes permanent. 

PART 4

Micro Meals : Take a Bite Out of Stress

We all have to eat every day, and our choices are often affecting our chemistry and levels of stress without us knowing it. In turn, our chemistry and levels of stress affect the food choices we make. Round and round we go, stuck on this stress cycle!

What if you could eat in a way that optimizes your chemistry, energy, cognitive performance, focus and health… and in an easy and convenient way?

After this keynote, your team will...

  • Consciously make the physiological connection between nutrition and the big five: stress, cognitive function, mood, decision making and appetite.
  • Uncover how they're putting stress into their mouths multiple times a day.
  • Break the chemical and biological feedback loops that can have serious negative consequences on their focus, concentration, productivity, energy, sleep, health and weight.
  • Realize how their environments shape stressful food choices and how to flip the script.
  • Grasp why willpower doesn't work when it comes to nutrition, and what to use instead.
  • Eat for resiliency in a way that's convenient, easy & sustainable.

No matter what food you have available, where you live, your travel schedule, or whether you cook, you can be resilient during trying times. 

 

PART 5

Put Your Stress to Bed

Quality sleep is the foundation for resiliency, performance and health, yet more than half of us struggle with it on a nightly basis. When we’re stressed, it’s even harder: it creates a vicious cycle of being stressed about not being able to sleep, which makes it even more difficult. 

 

After this keynote, your team will...

  • Know how to create the right chemistry and environment for great sleep.
  • Connect sleep issues with negative effects on the chemistry and physiology of your brain and body. (They’re not just a nuisance!)
  • Discover the connection between quality sleep and learning, memory, mood, energy, hormones, health and longevity.
  • Learn sleep hygiene strategies that will improve the quality of their sleep and leave them feeling more resilient, engaged, positive and focused. 
KEYNOTE:

KEYNOTE:

COMMANDER & CONTROLLER:

When stress hits, do you really feel in command & in control? 

FOR ENTREPRENEURS, BUSINESS OWNERS, OR MLMs

Success as an entrepreneur requires you to be self-motivated, persistent, consistent, courageous and committed to the long haul...all in the face of stress. Unfortunately there’s just one person standing in your way:

SNEAKY PETE.

Sneaky Pete is the primitive, caveman brain we all have that’s leftover from our humble beginnings as humans. He’s hardwired to:

  1. LIVE IN THE MOMENT & BE ALL ABOUT PLEASURE. Sneaky Pete doesn’t care about next month’s sales report – he wants a break from work RIGHT NOW to watch tv, eat a bag of chips, and have a glass of wine (or two).
  2. BE LAZY. Ugh, doing 5 outreach emails today is enough, right? Following up with 2 people is plenty, yeah? Sneaky Pete is designed to expend the least amount of energy possible.
  3. WANT INSTANT GRATIFICATION. Sneaky Pete doesn’t want to create a plan or follow a system for long-term success – he’s impulsive, reactive, and just wants some quick hits right now.
  4. BE FEARFUL. He doesn’t want to put himself out there or recruit...that requires talking to people and that could mean rejection! Sneaky Pete doesn’t want to take risk or do anything new or different. He’s afraid of failure, afraid of success, and afraid of the unknown.
  5. DOUBT. Sneaky Pete is the voice in your head telling you you’re over-shooting, you’ll never make it to the next level, never be at the top, and pokes holes in your dreams. Who are you to think you can be a big success at this?

In this keynote, learn how to get Sneaky Pete OUT of the commander’s seat, and plant your advanced, entrepreneurial mind firmly in control.

  • Understand how stress and cortisol negatively affect thinking, focus, decision-making, communication, mood and emotions.
  • Stop the loops of fear, negativity and self-doubt… for good!
  • Crisis-proof your mindset with a sense of confidence and control in uncertain times.
  • Stay focused on long-term goals, strategies and objectives.
  • Shift your mood to being proactive, positive and solution-oriented. Tap into a powerful source of inspiration and direction.

Jenny’s energy and enthusiastic presentation gave the conference the kick in the pants (or should I say skirt) for which we were looking! Not only did she have practical ideas for being “well on heels”, she did it in a humorous and engaging way with facts to back it up. She had women punching in the air, doing chair sit-ups and looking for more. Her energy on stage carried through to her conversations with many of the participants afterward.

Jenny really hit the mark when speaking with us at our annual all-employee meeting. Like many, we work in an industry that is fast-paced and often stressful. The practical examples Jenny shared about stress and resiliency were easy to relate to and understand. Positioning stress as a chemistry problem helped me personally reduce the frustration I feel when wondering why I can’t deal with stress more effectively. Her reassurance that we are hard-wired to resist change and challenge to keep ourselves safe made a lot of sense. Jenny offered practical techniques to overcome our natural responses of “fight or flight".
