Stress is something we can all relate toespecially in the events and catering industries. But is that a good thing? Does being stressed make us feel successful? Maybe that's something we need to explore.

Pilots deal with stress all the timeand yet, we joke about the fact that pilots always sound so calm that they're almost bored. How is that possible, when they are traveling at lethal speeds with hundreds of lives depending on their every move?

In this session, we'll explore how pilots are trained to manage stress and thrive in an environment that would be overwhelming for most. You will:
1. Learn how pilots are trained to process and manage informationwithout stress.
2. Convert pilot procedures to be applied to your own industry, projects, and workflows.
3. Learn about the importance of efficient, targeted communication.
4. Explore how prioritization and compartmentalization can make a BIG difference in how you feel and operate.
5. Feel more productive, focused, and calm, as you approach goals and projects more systematically.
