Stress Management

Can you afford NOT to support your team with a Stress Management Program?

Job stress is costly. Job Stress carries a price tag for U.S. industry estimated at over $300 billion annually as a result of:

  • Accidents
  • Absenteeism
  • Employee turnover
  • Diminished productivity
  • Direct medical, legal, and insurance costs
  • Workers’ compensation awards as well as tort and FELA judgments

– The American Institute of Stress

Do you think none of these issues face you? Think again.

Which of these scenarios sound familiar to you?

Susan is exhausted and accidentally cc’s a client in an email that revealed sensitive information. The client, enraged, withdraws their six-figure contract.

Paul slips and falls on his way back from the conference room because his mind was on his never-ending to-do list. He’s now flat on his back and on worker’s comp.

Steve was recently promoted but overwhelmed by a lack of clear directives. He has a hissy fit and alienates the very same people he’s supposed to lead.

Chris, a rising star on the sales team, just got swooped up by a competing firm, simply because the new work culture is deeply committed to their employees having a greater work-life fit.

Jenny can’t focus because she doesn’t know how long she’ll have a job.

The tragedy is, each of these employees is innately terrific at what they do; they are smart, hardworking, and committed. They have one thing in common—they are dealing with seismic stress during unprecedented times, and they simply don’t have the skills or support to manage their stress. More and more time, productivity, and money is lost due to the above reasons.

The great news is I’ve worked with many clients and organizations through the years and have found that implementing a few simple but substantive tools can turn things around.

What Clients and Participants Are Saying:

“I had the pleasure of attending Lois’ “Stress Less…Sparkle More” half-day workshop at my conference through my union.

I immediately felt her Sparkle from the get go! She had such a upbeat and energetic personality. 

The combination of heartfelt and entertaining stories, practical strategies and exercises, mixed with with her insightful LOIS-isms (lessons, opportunities, insights, and solutions) on how to deal with stress in a positive way really made a difference! 

Luckily we received her book, Courage to SPARKLE, which has been so helpful to me in so many ways both personally and professionally. Lois, her book, and her Sparkle came to me at a time in my life when I needed it the most and I am thankful for getting the opportunity to experience it. I NEEDED the Courage to SPARKLE!!

We all need to SPARKLE! Especially now. Lois can show you how!”

-Tracie Ross- Claims Specialist

“I met Lois today at a Lead-HER-Ship series and felt compelled to write a recommendation. Her exercises were perfect for my personality; high energy and I laughed all my stress away. I haven’t felt this great in years. I highly recommend her!”

– Lorraine Bucheroff, Membership Services, National Minority Business Council

“Lois came to Grace Institute to share her time, talent and treasure with our students. She presented her fabulous “Stress Less, Thrive More” workshop to a group of about 30 women who are unemployed and attending Grace to gain the skills they need to make a better future for themselves and their children. Lois has a true gift of being able to make people feel safe being authentic and vulnerable – a gift that many of our students may not have encountered in a very long time, if at all. Her very presence, and the practical, relevant topic she presented on, was invaluable.”

– Jessica James, CEO of Jessica James Consulting, LLC.

“I started working with Lois because I wanted to increase my confidence, manage my stress become a better leader to my staff and establish a better overall work/life balance. After only a few sessions, I already started to experience growth. Not only am I a better leader, but I have more confidence in the decisions I make.

Overall, my company is working better together as a whole and my employees are happier and more motivated. Lois worked with all of my employees one-on-one and not only are they appreciative that I care about their personal growth and professional development, but I’ve seen amazing progress in a relatively short amount of time. I wanted to take myself and my company to the next level and Lois has given us all the tools to do it.”

Maureen Lowe, President and Founder of FTF

“Lois tailored her Stress Less Thrive More presentation especially for our division, understanding our work/life balance and our stress factors. She was very motivating and showed us her techniques, which we tested out and brought an immediate calmness to everyone in the room. For weeks after the event, people were still talking about her fun loving style and how helpful the presentation was.”

“I would recommend Ms. Barth to other employers that have employee issues that span beyond the workplace but also into whole-person issues that perhaps an executive or business coach is less suited to handle. Hyperlink to testimonial page.

– Jennifer Duncan VP HR at Arthur J. Gallagher

“As an HR Leader for Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., a world leading insurance brokerage agency, I am often looking for qualified external partners to help support the development of our talent. Recently, we had a long-service and high-performing employee experience some challenging life events that were affecting her work product and behaviors. We contracted with Lois Barth to provide her consulting expertise with our employee with the intent of providing guidance and support to this individual in dealing with very personal and difficult issues and learning how to balance these emotions so not to negatively impact other areas of her life. The employee in question found great value out of these sessions and took away as much about being more effective in the workplace as she did general life skills. There was also an increased engagement level of the employee in her appreciation of Gallagher’s support and investment in her by providing her with Ms. Barth’s services. Ms. Barth handled a difficult situation with the upmost professionalism and appropriately balanced keeping the situation confidential for the employee while providing Gallagher with high-level but non-confidential progress updates.

SELF magazine tapped Lois Barth as the featured life coach for the annual, highly successful SELF Challenge program. I highly recommend her as a Speaker, Consultant, and Expert.”
