It is based on the ARSENAL Model (below) of seven best practices that are key to resisting the negative effects of stress
ARSENAL results include a personalized plan to help you become more Stress Resilient.
“As economic pressures at home combine with an ever-changing global economy, the demands on leaders will continue to mount, as will the stress levels in organizations.” ~Henry L. Thompson, Ph.D., author of The Stress Effect: Why Smart Leaders Make Dumb Decisions—And What to Do About It
Stress is a normal part of life. While positive stress triggers motivation and desire to accomplish goals; negative, chronic stress can decrease the quality of life. Persisting high stress can be damaging for leaders’ brain, impair cognitive performance, increase levels of cortisol, the blood sugar, blood pressure, lower immune system, increase memory loss and trigger certain emotional and cognitive responses to stress. Stressed leaders are unable to make quick and effective decisions. Incorporating ARSENAL Assessment and additional training works as resilience building block and helps in acquiring stress immunity. These 7 practices (Awareness, Rest, Support, Exercise, Nutrition, Attitude, Learning) widened by practice of Mindfulness and meditation are the foundation of ultimate balance and well-being.
Leaders make decisions all day every day. Too much stress has a huge impact on a leader’s ability to access Emotional Intelligence and cognitive ability (IQ), two essential components of decision making. When stress goes up, the ability to use them to make good decisions goes down. Poor decisions contribute to lost jobs and profit and to leader derailment.
Use ARSENAL to stop the downward spiral that stress can cause in decision making. Leaders must be able to use their Emotional Intelligence and cognitive ability in tandem to make the best decisions.
