    Stress Keeps You Unemployed (Ep 244)

    Stress Keeps You Unemployed (Ep 244)

    Corporate stress is a pervasive issue in today's work environment, significantly impacting the physical and mental well-being of employees. Recent data highlights the severity of this problem, revealing alarming statistics that underscore the urgent need for effective stress management strategies in the workplace.
    In this episode we discuss the complexities of corporate stress with Dr Randy Brazie, a board-certified psychiatrist, and Dr Geoffrey VanderPal, a seasoned business professor. Randy and Geoffrey's partnership began over a casual dinner conversation about three years ago. Geoffrey's curiosity about psychology and Randy's expertise in somatic experiencing led to an enlightening discussion on integrating these concepts into business leadership. This sparked the idea for their book, "The Steadfast Leader," which delves into applying psychological principles to enhance business decision-making and leadership.
