The Red Zone is a state of being where heightened stress tips a person out of alignment. For most of us, stress used to gradually build toward this tipping point, but these days people almost feel as though they are on an emotional seesaw. Stress is affecting us at work and at home with a regularity that is leaving many paralyzed.
In this keynote, Clinical Psychologist and Transformative Speaker on Positive Psychology Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo (Dr. E) takes the audience on a journey to explore the Red Zone, applying her research-driven approach which breaks down the emotional obstacles we face each day and provides strategic tactics to better manage them. She explains how mindset can change in the Red Zone vs. the Green Zone, how individuals can identify when a shift is needed, and how it can be leveraged for greater communication and success at work and home. Her simple, yet unique method provides participants with a new “language” to gauge how they are feeling and provides different strategies to effectively lead themselves and others out of the Red Zone. Leaders find this talk invaluable as it helps them identify signs when they or their employees may be stressed out or need additional support. What’s most compelling about the Red Zone model for overcoming stress, is that it is something that can be done with consistency and when best practices become routines, that is when we can truly transform as people and organizations.
