Optimism is measured by the way you define events. And it requires training the voice in your head to see the light in things. But once you make it a habit, you’ll start to view stress as a jumping off point. A springboard to the bigger, better, more rewarding bits of life.

> I’m not going to get any better at this.
> It’s too radical a change.
> It’s an opportunity to learn something new.
> I’ll tackle it from a different angle.
> Necessity is the mother of invention.
> I wasn’t able to fit it into my schedule, but I can re-examine some priorities.

This is an excerpt from The Stress Report.
The Do Lectures is holding a one-day event called ‘Do Stress’. It will deliver insights, future strategies, and will examine the zeitgeist for ‘human-based companies’ and how ‘work’ is going to change. And what that means for your business?
There will be 10 talks from entrepreneurs, thought-leaders, change-makers and visionaries. As Dan Pink reminds us all: “Talented people need organisations less than organisations need talented people”.
That is why smart companies are creating human cultures, not corporate ones in order to thrive. How you stay ahead in the future is not the same as what kept you ahead in the past.
It answers the question of who leads the way in look after their people, what are they doing, why is it working? How does culture help your business? How does your purpose? How does the design of your office? Even, how you sit at a computer?
How does a human culture prevent burn out? How does it help you win the talent war? And how, just as importantly, does it help you retain your people too. What perks are the most important?
The good news is companies who look after their people are also the best businesses over the long term. Human based companies are the future. So how do you become one? Our one day event is designed to give you the answers.
