Reduce Stress, Increase Energy, Strengthen Focus

How can we meet our tasks at hand with high energy rather than feeling fatigued, frustrated or unmotivated? How can we reduce our stress levels to be more effective in our performance? Taking charge and being in control is essential for our personal effectiveness. The key to quality performance lies in our personal effectiveness and responsibility, in our “self-management”, our ability to make decisions, to keep ourselves fit and to come to work fully engaged for high performance. According to psychologists Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz, we perform at our best when we are physically energised, emotionally connected, mentally focused, and aligned with our values. These four areas comprise the quantity, quality, focus and force of our energy.
