From Stress to PROGRESS! : Insights on Working and Winning in a World of Change

How to deal with or relate to the stressful stimuli in this high-tech, low-touch world of speed-of-light change is a vital and important topic that desperately needs discussion.
Check this: Stress not only limits your progress; stress can and will kill you (if you don’t take action)! - The American Medical Association says that stress is now the basic cause of over 60% of all diseases and illnesses (cancer, heart problems, etc.). - Stress-related problems, according to the American Institute for Stress, are responsible for 75 % to 90 % of doctor visits. - A study conducted by the University of London found that unmanaged reactions to stress were more likely to lead to cancer and heart disease than either smoking cigarettes or eating foods high in the bad kind of cholesterol.

Often, we invest so much time dealing with stress that we don’t take time to progress.

Dean Lindsay's "From Stress to Progress" program based on his book, The Progress Challenge, offers tips and strategies to go from stress to progress!!

Chief Executive Officer Independent Insurance Agents of Iowa

“Thank you, Dean Lindsay! You did an outstanding job speaking to the Independent Insurance Agents of Iowa's 101st Annual Convention. You delivered a highly entertaining and motivational presentation and really hit it out of the park! Thanks for investing the time in getting to know our group. Your blend of sales, customer care, and relationship building insight was right on the money, and you are a blast to watch – super funny. The feedback from our members was outstanding and we are happy to refer your name to anyone needing a first rate professional speaker. Thanks for 'being progress' for IIAI.”

“Dean Lindsay was asked to speak at our sales leadership conference to support our theme of “a new day for new thinking”. Dean took the quality time up front to understand the deliverables we needed for our specific audience and he delivered as promised. His style, material and overall delivery and facilitation hit the mark for our group. Many participants later commented about enjoying the 4 hour session but also benefiting from it by getting new ideas to bring back to their territories to go after additional sales. I would certainly work with Dean again and recommend others to as well.”
