Presentation Summary:

High-stress environments change how leaders perceive and appraise their situations,
as well as the decisions they ultimately make. Popular understanding of stress tends to
focus on its negative outcomes – or is used as an explanation for why even the most-talented
leaders can sometimes make choices that are detrimental to the organizations in which they
work. In this Webcast, however, award-winning Organizational Psychologist and Leadership Expert Henry L. (Dick) Thompson, Ph.D., will explain in clear terms how individuals can actually harness the power of “The Stress Effect” to become better leaders, make better decisions in stressful situations and, ultimately, improve their organization’s bottom-line results. Dr. Thompson also will share key decision-making tips and techniques from his groundbreaking organizational development resource—The Stress Effect: Why Smart Leaders Make Dumb Decisions & What to Do About It..
