Turning Stress into Success

Transforming stress into success by using stress as GPS. Create a roadmap to help you focus and be more productive and have more clarity. Refocus your stress energy.   Everyone is different but you can learn to master your own stress. Tildet will teach hacks to help you feel and embody by knowing and doing. 
Example of a hack: When stress comes (not enough business or not creative enough),  it takes you to survival mode because the brain wants safety. When you are there, you can't be creative.  Breathing exercise is a hack.  Taking a deep breath can tell you that you are okay.   Filter your emotions and focus on the ones that help you.  Tildet will teach you the "SAFE Method" -  Stop, Acknowledge, Feel/filter, and then Empower. It can transform stress in 60 seconds or less.

Bio: Tildet is an inspirational speaker and business coach, is fiercely committed to guiding leaders and human-centric organizations to achieve success and to maximize their potential.

She has spoken to all types of audiences ranging from start-ups to nonprofits to Fortune 500s, helping with issues such as loss of engagement, ineffective communication, and stress. Through this work, the staff and leadership become inspired, engaged, and empowered.  Tildet has paved a multidimensional and highly effective path to transformation. She integrates the knowledge gained by starting and running three successful companies, by having a degree in pharmacy, and by achieving expertise in the famed Demartini Method of human behavioral work.
