We live in a work and life environment surrounded by stressors, which can cause chronic stress in us. Left unchecked, chronic stress and daily stressors can deteriorate our well-being as well as instantly lower our IQ and ability to respond well. This presentation will walk through how our brain reacts in the face of daily stressors and what mechanisms can be utilized to emotionally regulate our brains and achieve resilience in individuals and in teams.
