The #1 Trick to Hiring a Stress Management Speaker
Who Meshes With Your Team
When your team is facing increased pressure and stress in the workplace, the last thing you need is a stress management speaker who simply doesn’t “get it.”
The root causes of stress are hyper-specific to your team, their dynamics, and their work environment. The speaker you hire needs to become intimately familiar with what makes your team tick, the different types of stress they’re facing, and how those stresses impact individual performance.
In order to find a stress management speaker who meshes with your team, you need to thoroughly vet your speaker before you bring them in. This goes beyond a simple phone call or a quick visit to their website. Instead, you must work with the speaker to dig deeper, clearly identifying those personal qualities and relevant experiences that will enable them to successfully lead your team in the area of stress management.
Look for a speaker with experience not just in speaking about stress, but in actually overcoming stressful situations in the workplace. Real world experience enables the speaker to empathize with your team, and offer solutions based on what’s worked for them in the past.
The speaker should also be able to provide you with a resume, references, and specific examples of how their stress management methods have helped other teams like yours overcome their toughest problems.
