Professionals are under tremendous stress, and it’s affecting them personally in health, relationships, and business. According to the American Institute of Stress:
- 48% of Americans feel their stress has increased over the past five years
- Stress is the basic cause of 60% of all human illness and disease
- 54% of Americans say stress has caused them to fight with people close to them
Stress-related healthcare and missed work time cost US companies a whopping $300B annually. Leaders, especially women professionals, need a new way to be in the work world. Typically they try to do everything they expect of themselves and most of what they imagine others expect. They are too good, for their own good, at getting things done. Many are HyperCompetent: overdoing beyond what’s healthy. They are burning out at an alarming rate. At this talk, participants learn to lead from their unique definitions of success, so that their lives become easier, they achieve satisfying goals, and their energy becomes more of a naturally renewable resource.

Dear WLGO members,
Happy 2014! After an excruciatingly long winter for those of us not blessed to live in temperate climes, spring is finally around the corner. And with it, our first newsletter of the year. Please check out all the upcoming WLGO events, find out more about some of our members, and laugh a little (cry a little) reading “Recline, don’t lean in (why I hate Sheryl Sandberg).”
Thank you so much to our 2014 newsletter volunteers – Grace Overlander, Emily Chang, Charlie Lieu, Michele Parrish, and Cindy Closkey.
As always, if you would like to dedicate a teensy part of your life to helping out with this, let me know!
