    • FOUR GREAT HORMONES TO STIMULATE WELL-BEING ¿WHAT DO YOU PERCEIVE IN YOUR MIND AND YOUR BODY WHEN YOU ARE STRESSED, AS OPPOSED TO WHEN YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF. 5
    • NEUROCHEMISTRY OF WELL-BEING A feeling of personal well-being depends on the combination of neurotransmitting hormones stimulated in the brain. 6
    • MAIN NEUROTRANSMITTERS CORTISOL: an adrenaline alert and energy rush in the face of a threat. It is valuable for survival (fight-flightparalyze) however, its excess is the source of stress. ENDORPHIN (Endogenous Morphine): relieves pain, stimulates physiological immunity and strengthens resilience to stress. DEVELOPING RESILIENCE AND REDUCING STRESS DEPEND UPON THE COMBINATION OF 7 REDUCING CORTISOL AND INCREASING ENDORPHINS
    • RESILIENCE Personal Resilience (Stefan Vanistendael,1994) a the combination of: • Innate human capacity to face adversity and resist destruction • The willingness to grow, evolve and develop in spite of adversity, and… • The use of adversity itself to learn and transform oneself. 8
    • RESILIENCE ALSO DEPENDS ON CONTEXT: • • Interpersonal Development Factors • Strategic Thinking Factors • 9 Individual Development Factors Vision Factors
    • INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT THE CULTURE OF THE TEAM AND THE ORGANIZATION STIMULATE AND REINFORCE RESPONSIBLE AUTONOMY: 10 • Valuing both the person and the behavior: the being and the doing • Supporting a sense of personal identity and role • Asking for perceptual and behavioral flexibility • Stimulating self-awareness and self-correction • Facilitating self-esteem and self-confidence • Helping people distance themselves from negative messages, behaviors and conditions.
    • INTERPERSONAL DEVELOPMENT THE CULTURE OF THE TEAM AND THE ORGANIZATION STIMULATE AND REINFORCE THE SPACES AND PROCESSES OF MEANINGFUL CONVERSATIONS: • Valuing inclusivity and diversity • Stimulating dialogue to gain understanding, make decisions and transform conflicts • Reinforcing expressions of affection and mutual help • Listening empathically and attentively • Having a sense of humor that does not belittle anyone 11
    • STRATEGIC THINKING THE CULTURE OF THE TEAM AND THE ORGANIZATION STIMULATE AND REINFORCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF STRATEGIC THINKING • Promoting transfunctional collaboration • Practicing reflection and group self-correction • Setting challenging and realistic goals • Asking for help when it is needed • Measuring and evaluating results. 12
    • VISION FACTORS THE CULTURE OF THE TEAM AND THE ORGANIZATION STIMULATE AND REINFORCE THE CODEVELOPMENT OF A RESPONSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE FUTURE: • Sharing core values • Facilitating the internalization of the corporate mission and team purpose • Expressing expectations of a promising future • Integrating corporate goals and aspirations with those of the people and their social systems. 13
    • PRESSURE, TENSION, STRESS Pressure Tension Two or more equal and opposite pressures Stress 14 A physical or mental force that makes contact with us. Systemic impairment that results from facing a prolonged and/or intense period of tension
    • HOW WE GENERATE ENDORPHINS IN OURSELVES AND IN OTHERS MENTAL-EMOTIONAL PHYSICAL • • • • • Exercise Massage Consensual sexual relationships Balanced diet Deep breathing SOCIAL • • • • • Meaningful Conversations Strengthening family networks Participation & consensus Good, close friends Co-Creation & synergy • • • • • • Smiling Positive thinking “Alpha” relaxation Using creativity Flexibility New learnings, challenges SPIRITUAL • Praying & meditating • Contact with pets and nature • Singing & dancing • Helping others • Defining and living values and purposes 15
    • DEVELOPING RESILIENCE AND REDUCING STRESS DEPEND UPON THE COMBINATION OF REDUCING CORTISOL AND INCREASING ENDORPHINS
    • “PREMIUM” NEUROTRANSMITTERS DOPAMINE: it is generated in the system by the achievement of a personal goal, the satisfaction of a “job well done”, and also by eating or enjoying a sexual activity. Any excess can be addictive. SEROTONIN: generated by public recognition and by receiving “Warm Fuzzies” It creates feelings of pride, well-being and achievement. It is the necessary “regulator” to avoid excesses and maintain a good life balance. OXITOCIN: generated by trusting relationships, physical expression of appreciation and acts of generosity. It gives a 17 sense of total personal fulfillment and “wholeness”.
