Wednesday webinar at one: Managing your stress

Wednesday 11 May 2022 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

This session is brought to you by CFA UK’s Soft Skills working group

PQ, the Physiological Quotient, represents the 3rd dimension of executive performance management, sitting alongside IQ and EQ as a fundamental determinant of personal and collective growth and impact.

Expertise from elite sports science and the increasing precision of consumer wearable technologies are offering powerful insights into the complex drivers of productivity in the contemporary workplace. Issues of wellbeing, resilience, mental health and broader diversity can now be additionally addressed empirically.

This session will show how data is collected non-invasively, what samples of stress and recovery look like across professional workforces and suggest measures for self-management that will support individuals sustain performance, based upon scientific profiling.

At a strategic level, it is clear that boards of directors and senior leadership face new ESG challenges relating to executive physiology. Are they sufficiently informed to lead in this area? How can the shortfall be remedied systematically?

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
