From Stressed to Best


Stress is the number one culprit keeping you (and your clients) from reaching full potential. Reverse your stress and teach your clients to do the same!

Through a combination of lecture, demonstration and discussion, this course provides you with the tools to understand the predictable stressors of you and everyone around you. Using Personality Type (based on Carl Jung’s theories and the MBTI®), coaches can help their clients better understand: how their minds are hard-wired and how their Personality Type creates predictable and reversible stress patterns in their lives; their strengths and their stressors and then use the information to help them create strategies that work with their natural preferences.

You will learn how the different personality types react when they are stressed and what situations they are likely to find most stressful.

You will learn the Best Modes and the Stress Mode of each of the Personality Types and basic strategies for helping each of them shift From Stressed To Best™.

People make better decisions, have better relationships, and make more progress toward their goals when they can immediately recognize and reverse their stress and this course provides the proven tools so that you will be more productive and your clients will make more progress.

The "How to Switch From Stressed to Best" booklet that we ordered for this class will be very helpful. It's a great resource for using with clients and helping them understand how to use the knowledge of their personality type to better manage stress. This course reminded me that using personality type can help me be a more compassionate coach by working with a client's unique strengths. I also found the teachers to be very well informed/subject matter experts. I liked that they used a lot of anecdotes to help us better understand the reactions of different personality types. It really helped bring it to life.
