Ethical Personal Power Effectiveness™

Practical Skills to Reset Your Relationship With Power for the Better...

Stop Being Harmed by Our "Perpetual Stress Society" +
Uplevel Your Positive Impact & Leader Effectiveness

In today's Perpetual Stress Society, it's more important than ever to uplevel your skills for managing change, so you can keep your wellbeing strong while supercharging your succees with your goals. How? By getting your personal power stronger than the stress and anger that surrounds you. In good ways. In your personal life, your business life, and your community life.

2 Big Keys to Keeping Your Power in a Perpetual Stress Society

Here's an important secret: Mostly people get stressed and angry when they feel like they have little to no impact... on their quality of life, in enhancing their cherished relationships, in magnifying their business success, in their contributing to their communities' wellbeing, in forwarding the causes that matter most to them, and/or in doing their part to help restore sanity to society.

Here's another important secret: Optimizing your Impact Effectiveness in a Perpetual Stress Society requires developing vastly different strategies and tactics for dealing with stress and anger than the vast majority of stress management and anger management programs provide.

Stop Being Harmed by Reptile Brain Takeovers
Most of us don't realize that how easily overtaken people are by the hyper-emotional non-rational "animal" part of our brain, whose job is to take control of us when it decides we are in an extreme stress situation. This part of our brain (our limbic system, also nicknamed our "reptile brain") is capable of only four responses: 
  1. Fight fire with a bigger fire ("fight")
  2. Run as far away as possible ("flee")
  3. Become paralyzed like a deer in the headlights ("freeze")
  4. Play possum in the hope that the danger will pass if we hold our breath and lie still for long enough ("faint")
How do Reptile Brain Takeovers occur? Chemically, that’s how. When we allow ourselves to become over-stressed, our body reacts by releasing "emergency response hormones" (adrenaline, norepinephrine, and cortisol). Most people don’t realize that these chemicals biologically turn off the spiritual and thinking part of our brain and hyper-mobilize the reptile-reactivity part of our brain. And few people adequately appreciate the profound damage that is created in our personal, work, and community lives when reptile brains are in charge.
What Most Stress & Anger Management Programs Don't Teach
If you're like most people, you haven't had access to skills that:
A) Prevent Reptile Brain Takeovers in yourself and others;
B) Enable you to quickly recognize when a takeover is occurring despite your best prevention efforts;
C) Minimize a takeover's damage; and
D) Restore effectiveness in yourself and others after a takeover has ended.
Succeeding requires going far beyond good intentions, mindset, and mindfulness... and far beyond what most stress and anger management programs teach. What's needed is skills, procedures, and accountability that:
  • Protect you, your people, and your enterprise from Reptile Brain Takeovers
  • Uplevel effective ethical power in you and your people
  • Make it far more possible than ever to bring about your highest intentions at work, at home, and in your communities.
What's needed is Resetting Your Relationship With Power™ so you:
  1. Have the upper hand on your reptile brain
  2. Effectively enact your personal boundaries in respectful ways, even when you don't have someone else's cooperation
  3. Co-create mutually beneficial agreements with people who have the willingness to collaborate... instead of feeling like you have to resort to coercion or compromise
  4. Successfully repair complications that arise in implementing those agreements so collaboration increases... instead of resentment building, conflict escalating, and agreements not being successfully completed
The Key to Succeeding With Your Goals in a Perpetual Stress Society
Succeeding with your goals at work, at home, and in your communities, will hugely depend on how effectively you:
  1. Immunize yourself from the profoundly damaging effects of our Perpetual Stress Society;
  2. Uplevel your Ethical Personal Power Effectiveness™ instead of remaining trapped in power tyranny, power rebellion, or feeling like you have no power to have positive impact.
If these things are valuable to you, it makes magnificent sense to invest in this course, which could turn out to be your most valuable secret success key for attaining your goals in the near term and over time.
