Weapons Of Stress Reduction

This energetic staple of Jordan Friedman’s training programs teaches participants a variety of strategies to prepare for and combat the stress of today’s changing work realities, financial insecurities, challenging relationships and competing work-life responsibilities.

Peak Performance Under Pressure

Public speaking is feared more than death by most, and interview stress gets in the way of expressing your best self and getting the job. Composed and compelling presentations are key to professional success and provide an unparalleled competitive advantage. Peak Performance Under Pressure teaches participants sure-fire ways to give their audiences what they want, boost speaking confidence and reduce performance anxiety--the three vital ingredients for presentation power.

The Schmooze Cruise (a.k.a Small Talk, Big Deal)

Small talk is a big deal because deals, decisions and introductions are made during events, at the buffet table and even while waiting for the restroom. Many partygoers dread saying hello, soft selling themselves or proposing a meeting to “strangers”, thus missing opportunities to advance themselves, their work and their fellow guests. Partly staged as a reception in progress, The Schmooze Cruise program serves up real-time techniques that de-stress the networking process to maximize its business-building potential.

Training objectives include: Developing emotionally stimulating personal and/or professional tag lines, understanding how to prepare for networking situations, identifying a demonstrable service or skill, and dealing skillfully with common party personalities.

Relaxation’s Greatest Hits

This cool crowd-pleaser is like a day at the beach or spa. It teaches and transports participants with breathing techniques, guided imagery, muscular relaxation, and other methods that produce the same deep states of tranquility as an ocean breeze or soothing massage. The measurable benefits of these classic techniques are immediate, and investing just a few hours to learn them yields a lifetime of payoffs for personal health and professional endeavors.

Training objectives include: Identifying stressors and symptoms that can be helped by the techniques presented, learning the steps for using Quick Calm, Instant Vacation, The Tranquilizer and other exercises, and developing a plan for using one or more of these techniques at home, work and on the streets.

Real Leaders Reduce Stress

Working solo and in groups, program participants learn and apply concrete strategies to strengthen each of these characteristics.

The Meditation Advantage

In reality, most meditators are CEOs, athletes and others who get balanced, better sleep and less bent out of shape over everyday stressors from brief daily focus on a word or sound. This training teaches participants how to meditate for sharper concentration, recall, problem-solving, creativity and performance under pressure, which are all immensely powerful assets for meditators and their employers in an increasingly competitive and stressful world.
