"Let’s just say that we entrepreneurs aren’t always the most relaxed people.  It’s tough to run a business.  But Dr. Nadine Greiner breaks it all down for us in this seminal book.  I recommend it to my clients and to everybody." 

- Doug Bend, Legal Counsel, Entrepreneur


"As Nadine points out in this fascinating book, stress is multigenerational as well as situationally contagious.  Having worked with Nadine, I was pleased to see that she has committed her work to paper and that her readers can benefit from her research and experience.  In my work, I am continuously building resilience in my leadership team, as well as with our children and families." 

- David Newell, President and CEO at PromiseShip


"This book does an artful job of conveying the tools and processes that keep CEOs like me awake at night.  More and more, our jobs are about tomorrow.  Tomorrow’s workforce, tomorrow’s state of health care, and tomorrow’s organizational relationships.  But the planning starts today.  Nadine Greiner’s book gives step by step instructions on how.  My team and I have engaged Nadine throughout the years to assist us with critical matters.  I am happy to endorse her book, and I recommend it highly." 

- Bimal Patel, CEO and President of Epic Care


"As leaders are called to solve more complex issues, faster, and with a leaner staff, I keep a lookout for leader stress and burnout in my colleagues.  Since they lean on me and my HR team for support, Dr. Nadine Greiner’s chapters on talent review, succession planning, and the organizational costs of stress were singing my tune.  This is a pivotal book at a pivotal moment in time." 

- Cindy Johnson, Chief Human Resources Officer at Providence Healthcare Network


"I often say that I am stunned at how little we knew just yesterday.  The workforce is changing a high rail train speed, and keeping our employee experience positive and productive is key. Yet, due to societal, health, economic, family, work, and other reasons, our employees and leaders are often stressed.  This book helped me understand where I, and where my organization stands.  The tools here are well presented and are best in class.  I use them in my work.  Bravo to Nadine for an inspiring and practical book for leaders at all levels."

- Debbie Shotwell, Chief People Officer at Saba Software


"I have had the pleasure and benefit of working with Nadine on several occasions. I was not surprised to see that her book contains numerous helpful evaluations for the self-diagnosis and levels of stress and other challenges.  Nadine is an expert at identifying, quantifying, and fixing human problems and internal challenges. In my roles as an entrepreneur and a leader, I found the sections on leadership development, performance, and culture particularly helpful."

- Patrick Browning, Vice President & Medical Director, Specialty Services at Magellan Health


"This book offers accessible advice for those who are confronted with stress in their personal lives and at work.  Running a small business in San Francisco, I found Nadine’s tips on engaging employees and bringing out the best in the culture resonated with what my team and I are always striving for.  Thank you for a great book, Nadine."

- Kathleen Kennedy, Small Business Owner at Quality Eyecare


"Leading a workforce is part art, part science, and 100% self-leadership.  This book gives ample advice and real-life examples of how to do this in a reliable way. This is a powerful book for leaders at all levels."

- Maynard Jenkins, Vice President of Human Resources at Sutter Health


"I oversee a lot of money and millions of customer transactions.  Even with automation, it’s the people who run the show.  When people are stressed, things do not go well.  This is when Dr. Nadine Greiner’s book comes in.  She has created a book packed full of solutions for personal well-being to company performance.  Thank you, Nadine!"

- Karen Introcaso, CEO at Kaiperm Diablo Federal Credit Union


"The chapters on the physiological impacts of stress are very well laid out and cathartic.  This is a clear call to action, not only for the reader, but to society, in my opinion.  In my work, I see a lot of the negative results of stress.  In her book, Dr. Nadine Greiner tackles the important questions around what we can do to help others and to help ourselves. In applying this to the nurses and staff I lead, self-care and safety always come first. And that starts with me.  I had the honor of working with Dr. Nadine, which I recall with great fondness and gratitude.."

- Candy Canga-Picar, Chief Nursing Officer at St. Charles Health System
