Strategic Women’s Leadership and Productivity Keynote

The Trouble With Busy

Shattering the myth of work-life balance 

Forget about work-life balance, it is time to stop BUSY from crowding out creativity, productivity, and wellness.

Built with humorous and engaging stories, this high-energy and high-content program explores the challenges of busy and provides real-world, immediately implementable strategies to reduce stress, improve focus, and get more of what is important done.

The Trouble With Busy reveals:

  • Original research exploring how men and women manage job stress differently (part of Eliz’s book to be published in 2017)
  • Surprising insight into high stress work environments.

Participants will:

  • Utilize a copyrighted assessment tool to explore the unique stress environment faced by the audience.
  • Uncover the elements of their personal stress environment.
  • Differentiate between busy and productive through interactive activities
  • Practice stress management skills* — including laughter!

*Warning: There may be dancing.
