Workplace Stress: What Drives It and How to Alleviate It
Dr. Dave Sharar
Managing Director
Chestnut Global Health
"Business leaders here and abroad are starting to understand the need for systematic, scientifically proven approaches in alleviating the behaviors and conditions that compromise employee performance. Managing the stress and the counterproductive behaviors that often result, is critical -- but the key to success when engaging different populations in different parts of the world is to place these programs in a 'culturally aware' context, which lowers barriers and improves both engagement and outcomes."
Dr. Sharar can speak to the cultural/social/economic drivers in the U.S., as well as in China, Russia, India, Brazil, etc., and why a "culturally attuned" approach is key to engagement, utilization and positive outcomes. He has written articles for over 70 publications, many peer-reviewed, and based in Bloomington, Ill.
