Stress and unchecked pressure has financial, mental, emotional and physical consequences.

Resilience is the antidote to stress.


Stress is part of living and working in the digital age. Information overload and an accelerated pace, it seems impossible to avoid  frustration, distractions and uncertainty.

Because of how we are hardwired, the stress reaction disrupts creative thinking, decision making and the ability to relate in a positive way to those around us. Your energy is your capacity and when drained, you cannot show up as an effective leader.

Resilience is the antidote to stress and ensures you have access to your highest level of thinking and decision making possible.

Dr. Cynthia Howard created the resilience pyramid after working with hundreds of individuals and discovering a path that activates resilience.

The Resilience Pyramid was developed after working with thousands of leaders who navigated pressure and stress successfully.
