Content-rich and customized:
This ensures your group will digest and apply learnings

Meeting Professionals have told me that I talk to the experience and the “insides” of their audiences. Even in these interactive, participatory workshops, there is often much quiet head-nodding as participants recognize concepts that apply to them – then digest these learnings. This results in long-term value for the individual employee and for their organization (much more than with motivational talks).

I look forward to your call to discuss my presenting or facilitating a training seminar or workshop for your group.

Prevent Overwhelm, Overload, and Burnout

Restore Daily Balance and Resilience

Hans Selye, the father of stress management, said that had he known English better, he would not have used the word “stress.” Instead, he would have used “strain.” You can learn to reduce the strain on your system – the daily wear and tear of stressors – by learning specific techniques to interrupt and manage the buildup of stress. Ultimately you can increase your stress tolerance, becoming not just resilient, but antifragile!

In this interactive workshop, Dr.Radde directs participants to discover and assess the unique stressors in their lifestyle, environment, and organization, including the digital tsunami. Next, participants practice three techniques to interrupt stress buildup. And they learn specific skills to reduce, reverse, and prevent stress and strain in the future.

Key learnings include making time in your day to recuperate and revive, to build up positive energy to support your daily activities, for enhanced living, and for long-term health. This is a practical workshop with an immediate and long-term positive impact for your participants – and your organization! Dr. Radde has worked with over 7,000 on stress management and professional burnout, including the NYPD Police Chiefs and NASA.

You Must Be Present to Win, Lead & Succeed

Craft an Authentic Presence

Your “attention” is a limited commodity. Advertisers get paid to capture and hold it. Technology and the world at large easily distract it. But maintaining your focus requires that you learn techniques to repossess and manage this precious commodity. And this focus is essential to maintain your presence on a daily basis.

A practical and eye-opening workshop, you will uncover the momentary and continuing distractions at play in your daily life. Next, you will learn techniques to begin stabilizing your attention. These mental practices are designed to bring you back to your presence, purpose, goals, and objectives.

The result? When you keep your attention, you will effectively invest your time and energy on a continual basis. You will stay on track and stay productive. You will advance – and complete – your tasks, projects, and strategies.

Appreciating the Trait of High Perception

Benefits of the highly perceptive trait in yourself and others

Do you – or does someone you know – pick up on subtle cues, nuances and contextual meaning? Are you empathic, intuitive, and creative? These are the traits of highly perceptive individuals. Representing about 15-20% of the population, these individuals are conscientious and self-managing, with high integrity.

Due to a finely calibrated nervous system, highly perceptive people notice more in their environment. In fact, they tend to be more sensitive to noise, lighting, medication, food additives, and effluents in the air as well as the moods of others. Plus, they have heightened needs for sanctuary, solitude, adequate sleep, and regeneration.

As a practicing psychologist, Dr. Paul Radde considers it vital for highly perceptive people to understand and appreciate their inherited trait and to consciously use their unique gifts professionally and personally.

If you are a highly perceptive person, you will learn how to tap into the strengths within yourself. If you are a supervisor with highly perceptive team members, this program offers insights to understand and support these employees – and bring out their best.
