Why Book This Speaker

Stress is an inevitable challenge that every person has to learn to overcome if they truly want to maximize performance, but many don’t. Instead, too often stress causes overwhelm, blame and dissension within teams, and leads to lowered productivity. If not managed properly, stress can even cause individuals and teams to self-destruct.

Based on in-depth scientific research of how the human brain and body processes stress, working directly with hundreds of clients from some of the most intense environments imaginable, and his own challenging personal experiences, Dr. Terry Lyles has pioneered the field of stress utilization. He has empowered countless people to overcome the fatigue and dejection that accompanies stress by implementing simple, tangible ways to use stress as an advantage—not just manage it.

Dr. Terry Lyles is the perfect guide to get you on the path to move out of being stressed and into being a super-achiever.
