Praise for Working Well

A comprehensive guide to reducing workplace stress.

This latest book from corporate trainer and consultant, Berryman (Nine Strategies for Dealing With the Difficult Stuff, 2016) aims to help readers identify the effects of stress in their own lives and in those of the people around them. She then offers ways for readers to change their responses to stress, reduce it, and increase their productivity. Berryman's strategies draw on the author's personal experience helping clients in her private practice. 

In all cases, Berryman emphasizes enhancing self-awareness and taking the time to step back and notice harmful and beneficial patterns. This comes into sharpest focus in a chapter on creating positive new habits; she describes habits, in general, as "the brain's way of saving energy," and throws light on the fact that many stress-inducing elements are, in fact, merely bad habits--which are, of course, susceptible to change. She also notes that people often don't realize how much power they're giving away to harmful people and situations; in essence, the steps that she outlines here effectively aim at taking that power back.

A thought-provoking and optimistic set of tactics for stress elimination.

This is an excerpt from Working Well: Twelve Simple Strategies to Manage Stress and Increase Productivity.

From the introduction:

“I’m Stephanie Berryman and I’m so glad you’ve bought this e-book. You’re going to learn some excellent strategies to help you strengthen your working relationships, have difficult conversations and deal with conflict.

I’ve spent the last ten years running my own business as a coach and a leadership development consultant. I’ve used these strategies to help thousands of clients improve their working relationships. Most people have also used the strategies I teach to improve their personal relationships as well.

One of my clients was on the verge of getting fired when I started working with him. Three months later, he was promoted. Another client said to me after just two sessions of working together, “I wish I’d started working with you years earlier. I could have saved myself thousands of dollars in therapy.”

These strategies work. As long as you use them. That’s the key. I’ve put questions and action items at the end of each chapter to encourage you to take action. I know it can be hard to make a change but if you keep taking the same action, you’ll get the same results.”
