“Sometimes we get stuck in the things that trip us up, our stumbling blocks, and this was a great opportunity to hear that somebody else has experienced those issues too.”

A Simple, Effective, Stress Management Approach...

Hi, I'm Barbara May!

My team building seminars and leadership training programs help people discover new ways of solving problems in the workplace such as dealing and communicating with co-workers and bouncing back from mistakes with confidence.

I'm a Leadership Communication Expert, Team Building Facilitator and Public Speaking Coach.

Is Stress Affecting Your Team's Performance?

Most People Don't Like Stress—But In Reality, The Best Teams Know How To Deal With It Effectively!

As your team building facilitator, my purpose is to create a safe learning environment where you and your team can discover new ways of solving problems in the workplace such as dealing and communicating with co-workers and bouncing back from mistakes with confidence. 

My method involves teaching a variety of strategies, tools and techniques, which you can use outside of the team building seminar, to help you build a stronger, more resilient team.

Here are some of the stress management strategies we can work on during your training:

  • Dealing with pressure and stress—how to stay calm and in control, even in the face of chaos.

  • Setting boundaries: How to say “no” without creating hard feelings or feeling guilty.

  • The keys to building trust between team members and team leaders under pressure, crisis and change.

  • Recognizing how personal values and attitudes impact your team's ability to deal with stress.

  • How to discuss the impacts of stress in a way that is accessible to all. 

What makes my team building seminars different? 

In my team building seminars, I share and teach the Stumbling Blocks philosophy—the belief that you can get past your stumbling blocks—to help people in the audience understand and embrace my key message: If you get back up, anything is possible.

Turn Your Stumbling Blocks Into Building Blocks For Success!
