How can you reframe stress and use it to build your resilience? Dr. Deborah Gilboa is on a mission to transform how people think about stress and change so they can accomplish what they need to in the world. She is a resilience expert who works with families, educators, executives, and businesses to identify the mindset and strategies to turn stress to an advantage.

Known to many as Dr. G, she is a board-certified attending family physician and a leading media personality seen regularly on TODAYGood Morning America and is the Resilience Expert for The Doctors. She is also featured frequently in the Washington PostThe New York TimesHuffington Post, and many other media outlets.

Today we’re going to discuss her new book, From Stressed To Resilient – the guide to handle more and feel it less. Why our brains hate change, the truth about stress, and eight key skills to build resilience in your life and career.

Dr. G has used these principles with her patients and in helping turn around hundreds of organizations including a group of banks that were suffering from a high staff turnover and a major construction company that was imploding from a lack of loyalty.

To replace one of your employees’ costs 2-3 times their annual salary. Bleeding talent leads to bleeding cash.  Teaching your people to move from stressed to resilient stops this from happening and leads to greater productivity, happiness, loyalty and profitability. Listen as Dr. G shows us how!
