Crazy Things Happen Only 10% of businesses are able to take advantage of situations after bad stuff happens (Gulati HBS). No surprise right? Nature strikes relentlessly with record-breaking disasters and wild temperatures. COVID hits and upends daily routines throughout the world with rolling bouts of danger, death & restrictions.  Add in a political climate with epic divisiveness and social unrest on a daily basis. Almost everyone has been impacted in some way.


Prepare For More  - 2024 is already showing us not to expect life to get easier. Plus - we're hard-wired to react to stress in ways that make it harder to stay on track to achieve our goals. Now, add in any ambition or goals we might have. These difficulties add up until we're now facing one steep climb to get ahead. When all three are in motion, it's no wonder we find ourselves easily distracted, stressed, and losing it with loved ones and others.


What's Most Important? It really makes little difference if you choose to challenge yourself or life challenges randomly happened. The truth is... we all have limits. Yet, why do two people react differently to the same exact conditions? Experience and research tells us we can push our mental and physical limits with the right training, skills, and tools. We either invest in ourselves by preparing for what's ahead or know and accept the cost not to prepare. Are you willing to pay the cost in your relationships and mental and physical health when you're not ready to handle stressful situations? 

Big Benefits These 3-hour+ sessions have helped clients handle choices to take on huge challenges like attending a rigorous military academy or move past extremely stressful situations to include bullying, terrible bosses, decisions to quit their jobs, divorce, family challenges, and more.

Get Mentally Tough
Put STRESS to work for YOU
 In 2024
Is your team
Tough Enough
to handle
what's ahead?

Welcome to the Get Mentally Tough Live Coaching Program Opportunities. Instead of stressful times holding your team back, learn the essential skills to successfully and consistently put stress to work for you! During this training, you and your teams will unlearn things that no longer serve you and identify the best ways to continuously strengthen your stress skills. Just like any emergency steps you might take before a storm, this training helps you handle stresses you face today, and prepares you to successfully handle even bigger stressful situations the future holds.

Your Default Perspective Is Not Your Fault. Have you realized that we're all hardwired to see stress as bad and react to it using survival-mode thinking (fight, flight, or shut down)? When we do so, it makes it harder to achieve our goals. When we can't, won't or don't know how to handle the stress in our lives, we and our loved ones pay the price. We hold ourselves back and may trigger mental and physical pain. 

Discover why stress skills are key to improve employee & leader well-being, to achieve your goals, and to put stress to work for you and your team. Sign up today to enjoy up to 300% greater productivity, greater confidence, improved communications, and stronger teams.
