Please help me to help others. Stress at work is a problem, and it is worsening rapidly. I did years of research on how to tackle and prevent work stress, and I am 80% finished with my book. I just need some funds to finish writing and to publish the book.
You are helping a good author: My first book, published by ATD press, and coming out in October, is doing well and is already pre-selling (it's on coaching).
Stress is a problem
According to the American Institute of Stress, workplace stress has become so commonplace that 80% of workers feel stress on the job. Nearly half of workers say they need help in learning how to manage stress, while 42% say their co-workers need such help. This book represents a multi-year search for the best resources related to stress and leadership, supplemented with a healthy dose of my own expertise and experience.
I researched the solutions
I did a lot of research, and there are lots of solutions. I am 80% finished with the book. Self-help and business books can be lengthy and replete with unnecessary verbiage and fillers. I wanted to offer a short book of 40,000 words, teeming with action-driven solutions. And I expressly wanted to write a book that was an enjoyable read with scores of tools, techniques, tips, and solutions for the reader on the personal, team, organizational, cultural, and global levels. I learned long ago that people learn best when they are relaxed, engaged, and having fun.
Who am I?
Who am I to tackle such an important subject matter? My multi-faceted background has afforded me a skills and experience that makes me a prime candidate. First, as a Ph.D. psychologist with a doctorate in clinical psychology specializing in trauma, I’m an expert in understanding and addressing stress. Second, I’ve spent several years in the throes of leadership. Not only have I held multiple senior leadership positions in non profit and publicly traded companies, I also hold another doctorate in organization development. I first served as the CEO of a health care company at the age of 38.
