STAY CALM UNDER PRESSURE
ReBoot® is a program that helps leaders to rewire their brains responses to stress by creating new, healthier habits and techniques to manage under pressure. Identifying triggers is the first step, and then understanding if we need to “dial it up” or “dial it down”.
Utilizing a reappraisal process is super useful in situations when we are “on” and need to “perform” at our best. For instance:
Story #1. You have a big presentation coming up, you have butterflies in your stomach, your heart is beating a little faster, YOU ARE EXCITED about what a POSITIVE outcome could mean.
Story #2. You have a big presentation coming up, you have butterflies in your stomach, your heart is beating a little faster, YOU ARE EXTREMELY NERVOUS about what a NEGATIVE outcome could mean.
Nervousness and excitement are both high arousal emotions and illicit the same physiological response. However, according to *Alison Wood Brooks from Harvard University, individuals who reappraise their anxious arousal as excitement feel more excited and perform better.
Other stressful situations may require different approach. For example, you are about to let go of some people on your team due to a downsizing... Not necessarily something you want to reframe as “excited”. In this case we want to dim down the brains limbic response and communicate from a place of calmness and empathy.
The ReBoot program combines contemporary neuroscience and ancient yoga traditions to provide a holistic approach to building resiliency and helps you to understand when to “dial it up” or “dial it down”. It involves a combination of cognitive reframing, growth mindset and mindfulness techniques, to address stress and negativity.
This training will help empower individuals with the tools needed to handle challenging situations more effectively, leading to improved well-being, better relationships, and increased productivity and more engaged teams.
