“The ability to get greater results and preserve well-being amidst change and challenge is the defining skill set of our times. Read this book—it is packed with life-changing insights and practical tools to put you in control of your own success.”
— Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times bestselling author of MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
Overflowing email. Endless to-do lists where everything is a “priority.” Pain-in-the-neck colleagues. A crisis suddenly dumped on your desk. Nagging guilt. No doubt about it: For most of us, stress is “the new normal.”
Each day amid a steady stream of anxiety-producing events, it gets harder and harder just to stay afloat—and keep the tension from affecting your personal life—let alone achieve your next level of success. Conventional wisdom says we should eat right, get enough sleep, and take a deep breath. All good. Yet, even these don’t always seem sufficient now. And anyway, who has the time?
Business psychologist Sharon Melnick spent a decade researching tools and techniques for staying resilient and productive even under chaotic and ever-changing circumstances. In Success Under Stress Melnick supplies a treasure-trove of the most effective quick-fix tools that you can use immediately to:
Get back to sleep in 3 minutes if you wake up at night worrying about work
• Increase the time you have to think—and to finish your high-priority work
• Boost your productivity dramatically by following one simple, but very powerful rule
• Turn obstacles into opportunities by getting the emotion out of situations
• Keep a cool head—even when others drive you nuts
• Turn self-criticism into self-confidence, and speak up more powerfully at meetings
• Increase your focus during the day (and keep things from falling through the cracks!)—and have more energy left at night.
Success Under Stress provides a veritable arsenal of “magic bullet” solutions for increasing your productivity and minimizing your stress. It will help you turn down your internal pressure-cooker, remove friction from any relationship, and derive more career satisfaction than ever...all while exuding a level of calm and confidence that you’ve never known before.
SHARON MELNICK, PH.D., is a business psychologist and stress-resilience speaker dedicated to helping professionals “get out of their own way.” Her practical tools are informed by 10 years of research at Harvard Medical School, and field-tested by more than 6,000 training participants and clients.
