  • Resilient to the Core: How to Improve Your Default Response to Stress to Boost Performance & Happiness

    Stress has become one of the biggest barriers to high performance on and off the field, yet new research shows 91% of us could improve our default response to stress using simple positive habits. In one of the largest studies on stress of its kind, researcher and bestselling author Michelle Gielan has identified the three major dimensions of your stress response that predict your well-being and performance, and how to quickly shift from stuck to empowered. She shares the new research coming out of positive psychology and strategies for achieving 31% greater energy and 23% fewer stress-related symptoms. Attendees will learn how to identify the three major responses to stress that waste energy and leave us stuck, inoculate their brains against common stresses and negative people, use unavoidable stress to their advantage to boost performance, develop three habits to retrain their brains to be more resilient and optimistic in minutes, and cultivate interconnected teams to create cultures of high performance, optimism and sustainable resilience.

  • The Optimism Quotient: Strengthening a Mindset that Fuels Happiness and Success

Weaving together poignant stories, interactive experiments and her own novel research, Michelle presents a compelling, engaging science-based case showing that being positive and sharing that optimistic mindset with others is central to success. During her session, you will learn how authentic, rational optimism significantly increases performance and business success, a proven tool to inoculate your brain against stress and negativity, practical, researched 2-minute habits proven to retrain your brain to be more resilient in minutes, and how interconnected teams can create cultures of high performance and sustainable resilience.
