Andy Bernstein Biography

Andy Bernstein is the author of The Myth of Stress/Breaking the Stress Cycle and the founder of the Resilience Academy. He teaches people a simple yet powerful 7-step process that changes the way you deal with challenges, with no jargon, stigma, or “touchy-feeliness.”

Since 2007, Bernstein has taught regularly at Wharton Executive Education, where his programs have been audience favorites for thousands of leaders because they are eye-opening, practical, and just as valuable personally as they are professionally.

Bernstein’s clients include Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, UBS, Wells Fargo, Raymond James, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Google, Coca-Cola, Genentech, Patagonia, and many others.

Bernstein also works pro bono with non-profit organizations addressing cancer, addiction, discrimination, and social change.

A former writer for the Muppets, Bernstein brings a combination of humor, intelligence, and relatability to his programs. He speaks from his own life experiences dealing with unexpected change, helping audiences handle even big challenges with a light touch.

Bernstein graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the Johns Hopkins University and lives in New York City with his wife and young children.

Andy Bernstein Speaking Topics

  • Breaking the Stress Cycle

    Where does stress really come from? In this eye-opening re-examination of the modern stress concept, attendees discover that our understanding of stress is based almost entirely on the work of one man — stress research pioneer Hans Selye — and why he was fundamentally wrong.

    We see the disastrous consequences Selye’s mistake has had on global well-being.

    Then we learn a new way to stop managing stress and start eliminating it at its source, leading to immediate and surprising improvements in how you think, feel, and lead change.

  • The Most Important Thing

    What matters most for happiness in life? Money? Achievements? Love? We start by examining the world’s longest study of adult well-being, and then we see why the real answer isn’t any of these things.

    We also look at the most important thing for high-performing teams (again based on data), and why it’s not talent, will power, and other common assumptions.

    And then we discover a tool that helps attendees begin to develop both greater individual well-being and stronger team performance in just seven steps, with no blame, stigma, or “touchy-feeliness.”

  • Crucibles

    How can you build mission-focused leaders able to deal with personal, organizational, and cultural challenges more effectively?

    Crucibles are high-temperature vessels used to melt metals, but in this session we use the term figuratively to represent adverse experiences that have the capacity to transform us.

    We see why crucibles matter, how they work, and the internal dynamics that gives them their power to make or break us as leaders and as human beings.

    Then we leverage a tool that harnesses the power of crucibles to transform challenges without saying a word, building the empathetic, clear-minded leaders your organization needs.

  • The Why and How of Great Teams

    In this special session for teams, we discover what matters most for team performance based on data, and why it’s not talent, motivation, communication, and other common assumptions.

    We look at the two most validated traits of effective leadership around the world, and we see why “crucible” experiences can produce better leaders and stronger teams.

    In the interactive portion of the session, we use a 7-step re-framing tool to change how people think about a common conflict, and can do a 10-minute exercise in small groups of 2 or 3 to give people a firsthand experience of some of the skills that great teams need to master.

    If you are serious about improving team performance, this session gives participants a framework and practical tools to get there. It is not a one-off. It’s the beginning of an ongoing commitment to use the team itself as a springboard for growth and performance.

    Note: Pre-work for this workshop can include an online survey to quantify team dynamics and make the session more tailored, and post-work can include an online interactive course that helps team members deepen and practice the skills that matter most for team performance.

  • The Indispensable Advisor

    Wealth management is changing. Financial advisors used to be people who were good with money. Now they also need to be good with people.

    In this session, we see why changes in client demographics and values, market volatility, and increased disruption are creating a demand for a new breed of advisors who prioritize empathy, client well-being, team dynamics, and non-financial value.

    Then we learn how to build this capacity across a team to increase the advisor’s value, referrability, team performance, and personal sense of well-being.
