Eliz Greene Biography



Hectic pace, chronic high-stress, uncertainty, and unavoidable negative influences can threaten productivity, creativity, and suck the fun out of even the most enjoyable professions. Protective gear is important in many work environments, wouldn’t it be nice to have protective gear for stress? Professional speaker, Eliz Greene shares insights from her job stress research and strategies to limit the impact of stress by developing what she calls an “emotional hazmat suit.”

Eliz survived a heart attack at age 35 while seven months pregnant with twins and knows limiting stress is essential to a long, enjoyable and productive life.

This engaging and humorous program details how to develop a system to protect your health, sanity, and relationships by:
-Deconstructing the impact of stress physically and mentally.
-Developing protective methods to cope with high stress.
-Understanding how to address what “keeps you up at night.”
-Practicing simple strategies to reset and restore.
