How Stress can Catalyze Your Company’s Growth & Become a High Performing Enterprise

For many years we have been told that stress is toxic and unhealthy, but many studies reveal that stress can be transformed into a vital source of helping us enhance our performance, productivity and improve our very basic health and vitality. Join us to learn how changing this perception and approach to stress can modify the entire dynamics of a company and save it a huge amount of money.

Stress is costing US businesses more than $300 billion each year. Turnover, accidents, absenteeism, medical, legal, insurance costs, workers’ compensation awards, and other expenses can be limited, managed, and controlled.

This program will demonstrate the methods and tools for a comprehensive innovative approach to identifying, acknowledging, embracing, and harnessing stress as a bona-fide means to enable employees to become more performance outcome oriented.

Studies have shown that a focus on trying to reduce and/or relieve stress is highly ineffective over the long term. We will explain why these coping strategies are inadequate in terms of impacting the health of the workplace. We will share effective solutions and how they can be implemented.

All measurements, data and conclusions shared in the presentation material is 100% empirically based evidence and supported by academic research from higher education institutions such as Yale University and Stanford University. Research results and published studies are free of charge available online.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand stress and describe what tangible impact it has on individual productivity and motivation, as well as on organizational performance and productivity
  • Leverage proactive techniques to harness stress and impact the workplace and a company’s overall health as well as bottom line
  • Describe what techniques, methods, and tools can be used to impact teams and employee engagement
  • Reduce conflicts with your teams and empower your communication with them

About the Speaker

Sophie Clement, CPC, ELI-MP
Certified Workplace Stress & Behavior Coach and Strategist
CSA - Clement Stress Alternative

Sophie was born and raised in Dijon, France. Always eager, enterprising, and self-motivated to pursue higher education, Sophie earned a bachelor’s degree in both marketing and advertising. After a few nascent professional years ensconced in a big governmental organization, she threw caution to the wind and made way from her native country to explore the Globe and landed eventually in TX.

All her professional adult life, Sophie had been employed in mid-level positions across various industries. She was always mindful of that elusive, albeit imminent, one perfect fit; that professional career role that would compel her to do what she always knew she could do – improve individual and thus organizational performance through the sound practice and application of social science within the context of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Always eager to serve others; and, driven to understand the human behavior behind corporate culture and performance, she found her joy and fulfillment in organizational and enterprise coaching.

In 2012, Sophie established an event planning company to organize strategic corporate occasions. Her approach was to design these events in a structured effort to motivate disaffected employees, to re-engage them in their work with a renewed commitment to themselves and to their company. But this was simply insufficient. So, she decided to take classes, become professionally credentialed, and develop her own methods and tools related to new strategies and skills that would help her incorporate a higher level of service offerings to her corporate clients. After only a few months of intensive education, she realized she had discovered her perfect fit. Sophie decided to shut down her corporate planning and event business and focus strictly on corporate and enterprise coaching. Employee engagement being her primary concern as an organizational behavior practitioner, she implemented her services through workshops focused on stress management and resilience training. Her services have made a huge impact on the professional and personal lives of employees who she has trained and coached.

She began to make research her emphasis until she discovered a new and emerging science relative to stress, its impact, and how to make it both instructive and a benefactor to promoting positive results from those who see its value proposition and impact on their performance in life. Sophie’s findings and commitment to stress management practices that she has developed have dramatically altered the trajectory of her life. Stress is now a completely accepted and critical part of her life. Since then, she has been studying and creating programs to help others learn and experience her amazing methods and approach to stress.
