The Stress Coach

Jordan Friedman uses his remarkable stress-to-success story to motivate and teach participants the most  effective stress-to-success strategies that fortify personal health and job performance. Jordan demonstrates his Stress GPS, Quick Calm, Mod Squad and more stress-busting tactics so that attendees are better prepared to deal with today’s changing work realities, challenging relationships and competing work-life responsibilities. Much more than just a motivational speech, The Stress Coach provides simple and effective  techniques for immediate use on and off the job.


Headaches, bad moods, poor sleep and most other Stress-fueled side-effects can be prevented by “checking our dashboards” and briefly acting to stop stress in its tracks. This is why Calmcast teaches participants how to instantly recognize stress symptoms and use simple strategies to neutralize them before they cause fatigue, anxiety, refrigerator raids and other roadblocks to feeling and working  better.  All of us experience some of these symptoms on a regular basis which makes Calmcast a smart and popular webinar or in-person program.

Peak Performance Under Pressure

Public speaking is feared more than death by most, and interview stress gets in the way of expressing your best self and getting the job. Composed and compelling presentations are key to professional success and provide an unparalleled competitive advantage. Peak Performance Under Pressure teaches participants sure-fire ways to give their audiences what they want, boost speaking confidence and reduce performance anxiety–the three vital ingredients for presentation power.

The Schmooze Cruise

Small talk is a big deal because deals, decisions and introductions are made during events, at the buffet table and even while waiting for the restroom. Many partygoers dread saying hello, soft selling themselves or proposing a meeting to “strangers”, thus missing opportunities to advance themselves, their work and their fellow guests. Partly staged as a reception in progress, The Schmooze Cruise program serves up real-time techniques that de-stress the networking process to maximize its business-building potential.

Relaxation’s Greatest Hits

This cool crowd-pleaser is like a day at the beach or spa. It teaches and transports participants with breathing techniques, guided imagery, muscular relaxation, and other methods that produce the same deep states of tranquility as an ocean breeze or soothing massage. The measurable benefits of these classic techniques are immediate, and investing just a few hours to learn them yields a lifetime of payoffs for personal health and professional endeavors.

Real Leaders Reduce Stress

The key traits of true leaders are also the essential strategies for successful stress managers: assessment, communication, problem solving, helping and action. Working solo and in groups, program participants learn and apply concrete strategies to strengthen each of these characteristics. Real Leaders Reduce Stress delivers high value to both individuals and their employers by reinforcing important leadership attributes, connecting tested stress management actions to leadership success and providing new approaches to use with teams and projects.

The Mindful Meditation Advantage

Mention “meditation” and many picture bearded old guys sitting cross-legged and burning incense. In reality, most meditators are CEOs, athletes and others who get balanced, better sleep and less bent out of shape over everyday stressors from brief daily focus on a word or sound. This training teaches participants how to meditate for sharper concentration, recall, problem-solving, creativity and performance under pressure, which are all immensely powerful assets for meditators and their employers in an increasingly competitive and stressful world.

Stressbusters: The Workshop

Using methods from Jordan Friedman’s acclaimed national Stressbusters training program now at Harvard, St. John’s, the University of Missouri and other schools, this highly interactive session teaches participants the top Stressbusters seated backrub techniques. Attendees learn and practice Bladerunner, Squeezing Lemons and The Texting Treatment along with communication essentials for healthy touch. Touch is increasingly linked to decreases in stress hormones, greater feelings of trust and better performance, making Stressbusters: The Workshop a super-relaxing experience that also strengthens communication, teamwork and output.
