Stress and anxiety are hurting the performance of the people in our care – especially younger employees. According to a 2019 study published in the Harvard Business Review, more than half the millennials and 75 percent of Gen Z reported they had quit a job for mental health reasons. Over 50 percent workers say that anxiety negatively affects their work performance.

In today’s volatile, fast-paced, and ever-changing global climate, organizations and their employees are under more pressure than ever to perform. This program is designed for leaders at all levels who want their teams to thrive. Based on this bestselling book, Anxiety at Work: 8 strategies to help teams build resilience, handle uncertainty, and get stuff done , Chester Elton provides 8 tactics for managers to help their employees build resilience and thrive.
