  • 2. Hello!
    Dr. Daniel Crosby
    President, IncBlot
    www.incblot.org
    Organizational Psychologist = Business Shrink
    Select, Perfect, Persuade
    Need a new head shot
  • 3. “Discovering” Stress
    First coined by Hans Selye in the 1930’s
    Thought he’d discovered a new hormone
    The process was the problem
    Met with skepticism
  • 4. WHAT IS STRESS?
    Specific response by the body to a stimulus, such as fear or pain, that disturbs or interferes with the normal physiological equilibrium of an organism.
  • 5. “If you are a normal mammal, stress is the three minutes of screaming terror on the savannah, after which either it’s over with or you’re over with”.
    - Dr. Sapolsky
  • 6. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy (things) we don't need.
    We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place.
    We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives.
    We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars.
    But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very (upset).
  • 7. Stress and Modernity
    Many professionals have secured their basic physical needs but wrestle with more enduring, ethereal needs such as belonging and meaning.
  • 8. Anatomy of Burnout
  • 9. (Trick Question)
    Is Stress Good Or Bad?
  • 10. Good Stress?
    Eustress
    Distress
  • 11. Stress and Performance
    Having too much stress ends in results that are identical to being lazy or bored (and isn’t nearly as fun).
  • 12. Stress and Retention
    A survey of 1,626 people showed that over 50% were looking for new jobs that were less stressful – Envisia Learning
    People will often flee a good/insecure job for a worse/secure job
    “The Devil that you know…”
  • 13. Stress and Wellness
    75% of all visits to a GP are caused or worsened by stress
    Imagine the impact on health costs
    Consider the impact on absenteeism
    Reflect on wellness and engagement
  • 14. Stress and Wellness
    Causes us to store visceral fat
    Shown to stunt children’s growth
    Increases risk of CV disease
    Intensifies symptoms of diseases with autoimmune components (e.g., arthritis)
    Root cause of much anxiety and depression
    Implicated in hypertension, ED, infertility, colds, and insomnia
  • 15. Stress and Smarts
    Studies show that we lose IQ and EQ points when under stress
    When we need our smarts most, they are least accessible to us (without proper coping mechanisms)
  • 16. Stress and Leadership
    A Swedish study shows that people who worked for bosses that were poor leaders were more likely to die of a heart attack
    The Five Tools and Stress
    Leaders must make extra efforts to manage stress to avoid “stress contagion”
  • 17. Stress and Profitability
    Stress-related missed work and underperformance is estimated at 10% of GNP
    That’s a whopping 1.47 trillion dollars/year
    That’s trillion, with a “T”
  • 18. Stress and Creativity
    On average, our minds can hold seven “chunks” of data
    Think about a phone number for an example of “chunkiness”
    Worry literally takes up space in our head that crowds out creativity
    Stress makes you mean, stupid and dull
  • 19. In Summary
    Stress = Getting out of balance
    Can be good and bad
    Too much is as bad as too little
    Has an enormous, measurable impact on profitability, engagement, retention, leadership, creativity and intelligence
    Be prepared to speak to the quantitative impact of stress to get buy-in!
  • 20. Any Questions?
    Ask away!
    I’m more approachable than my headshot would suggest.
    Think of ‘em later?
