Stay in control under pressure
A big presentation, a difficult conversation or an angry customer and suddenly your stomach is queasy. Or your voice goes funny. Or emotions hit you out of nowhere and your head goes blank.
Here’s what’s happening: Your instinctive or survival brain has taken over your body and your higher, thinking brain. You’ve been thrown off.
Your lower brain is preparing your body to get out of there. Chemicals are flowing, blood is pumping, nerves are firing. Your muscles are ready for action.
Only you can’t move. You freeze and your brain goes offline. No wonder you can’t think clearly, or remember anything, or even speak.
Physical problems need physical solutions. Shayna can help you find the right solutions for you, through workplace training, coaching, or counselling.
