Peak Performance and Stress Management
The current context in which most managers operate is characterized by high pressure that often translates into physical, emotional and mental manifestations of stress. Therefore, resilience and strength to cope with pressure has become one of the most relevant qualities for sustaining executive performance at work and well-being in general.
In this morning session, Professor Alberto Ribera will share insights on this topic combining medicine, psychology and neuroscience with practical applications that will enhance your understanding of what resilience entails and how to prevent and manage stress both for you and your team.
