Anxiety, anger and fear - that's what people are feeling with the recent political games and the relentless natural disasters. However, people are finding relief from the emotional turmoil by enhancing their Emotional Intelligence skills, enabling them to weather the storm unhinged.

Online PR News – 30-September-2011 – – To help people navigate the emotional roller coaster of these turbulent times, Wabash Friends Counseling Center is featuring Byron Stock in its 19th annual Day of Healing educational and experiential conference. Mr. Stock is offering a program for business people titled, "Building Resilience for High Performing Leaders and Organizations." In addition, participants can get information, resources and inspiration from 35 other sessions such as bipolar disorder, financial peace, forgiveness, learning to feel good about yourself, parenting through divorce, simplifying your life and more. The conference will be held at the Honeywell Center in Wabash Indiana on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 8:00 am until 4:15 pm.

People from all walks of life are fed up with the politics in Washington. While the politicians play "political chicken," their constituents are feeling their elected officials care more about their "political muscle" than the people they represent. Compounding this school-boy, playground mentality is the stress people are feeling about the economy, job loss, loss of financial security to say nothing about the anxiety and economic impact of the latest natural disasters such as hurricanes, wild fires, drought, flooding, and earthquakes.

Numerous studies have revealed that between 60% and 80% of all doctors visits are related to stress. Additionally, the major portion of health care costs for business and industry is due to employee stress and stress-related issues. These costs and absenteeism negatively impact productivity and teamwork in the workplace.

Stress is the result of negative emotions and beliefs that occur when people feel unable to cope with the demands of their work and home environment. So to address the true cause, not just symptoms, people need simple, proven techniques and methods to be aware of and manage their emotions in-the-moment.

In his session at the Day of Healing Conference, Mr. Stock will help people understand how enhancing their Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills enables them to manage negative emotions such as anger, frustration, fear, and anxiety. When people manage these negative emotions, they are able to make more thoughtful decisions, interact constructively with others and tap into their capacity for increased personal productivity.
