What happens to people when pressure builds?
What if we could turn it around?
Learn the original research. Apply powerful solutions. Laugh along the way.Â
Pressure at work. Pressure from looking side to side. Pressure to be someone. Pressure to produce an outcome. High expectations, in a high achieving environment, with frantic effort to be good enough, is leading to burn out, low productivity, conflict, disconnection, and isolation. Mental isolation. The Under Pressure Project is your solution.
More connection, more productivity, more peace, and more confidence -- in leadership, in teams, and in yourself.
In 2008 Karen Eddington launched a research program called The Under Pressure Project gathering 572 surveys about pressure, and spent the next 8 years looking for patterns. It started as a research project to understand pressure. Ten years later it's an unexpected mission to extend the solution to you.
Today, 'Under Pressure' is your custom keynote experience.
You can watch Karen's Tedx talk "The Connecting Power of Shared Laughter" to learn about the research. Jump to minute 7:00 if you are pressed for time. https://youtu.be/JPnH-OY0DaM
The Under Pressure Project is a customizable keynote experience.
Not only will you learn about Karen's original research, including the biggest pressure we face, the best solution for getting through, and the most universal and dangerous experience we can have, you can get specific to your needs.
You can choose an emphasis on:
1. Laughter: Using humor to cope with pressure.
2. Effort: Exploring solutions for work life balance, stress, change, fatigue.
3. People: Team-building, community, connection, and leadership.
