Gostick & Elton provide 8 Strategies to help teams build resilience, handle uncertainty, and get stuff done!
The rising levels of anxiety in the workplace is unprecedented, and a significant contributor is how we manage our people. Toxic workplaces increase anxiety in high-performing employees and can plant the seeds of uncertainty in usually confident workers.
Anxious workers burn out at more than twice the rate of other employees, tend to leave their jobs early, and will never recommend their workplaces to others.
Gostick and Elton’s research shows that almost half of workers say anxiety affects how they do their jobs, and three-quarters say their supervisor is the top reason for their anxiety.
Gostick and Elton detail these issues in their bestselling book, Anxiety at Work: 8 Strategies to Help Teams Build Resilience, Handle Uncertainty, and Get Stuff Done. When you bring them in to speak at your event, they can touch on essential resilience strategies.
