“CHANGE is inevitable. CHANGE is constant.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli
Modern American life is overwhelmed by change. Life, work and even technology seem to be changing in the blink of an eye. It is a well-established fact that change, any change, causes stress. It stands to reason then, that in our culture where change is ubiquitous America leads the developed world in stress related disorders. This has a measurable effect on companies, organizations and families. Stress affects worker productivity, satisfaction, physical and emotional health…in other words the bottom line! How can we alleviate the stress? Simply “trying harder’ by ourselves is not the best answer. The real solution may surprise you. Dr. Will Miller’s presentation is grounded in the best that social science has to offer. It has personal impact and will effect real change in your organization. With the humor that only a professional stand-up comic can bring, combined with the authority of five graduate degrees (the most recent in Health Psychology, the biopsychology of stress & coping) and years of experience as a therapist and teacher, Dr Will Miller has enlightened audiences all over the country.
Enhancing Your Team’s Emotional Health and Improving Workplace Wellness
It is undeniable that stress is a significant problem affecting every company and organization. The United States leads the world in stress-related disorders, with over twenty-five percent of us suffering psychological difficulties. The consequences are significant on worker productivity, work-days lost, retention and family stability. This is an issue with bottom-line implications and therefore of critical interest to managers and other leaders. Dr. Miller’s presentation on wellness and creating a healthy lifestyle is important for you to hear and experience. This engaging keynote will change your organization’s perspective on how to improve and sustain the well being of your team.
Managing A Healthy Workplace Culture: A Forward Looking Perspective for Companies, Organizations & Individuals
Last year 45 million Americans relocated. This means that your organization is increasingly represented by individuals who are living far away from their family & home of origin. In addition we look at television & computer screens for well over 25 hours a week. The American worker is living a lifestyle of increasing individuality and profound media distraction. Have you factored these realities into your formula for success? Few organizations have paid enough attention to these critical variables. Your staff are not robots – they react powerfully to the stresses of their jobs and from within their personal lives. This means productivity is profoundly affected by the state of their emotional health. Individuality & media distractions play a key role in driving their stress. What does your organization do to keep your people balanced and healthy, so they can focus on the critical tasks at hand? This is precisely what Dr. Will Miller’s presentation addresses – bringing insight to each individual about how the lifestyle they are living is helping or hindering their capacity to produce.
Dr. Will will bring your group a stimulating & engaging keynote or seminar presentation, grounded in research, that will:
– Energize your group to step up to new challenges & goals through insights that dispel common ideas about the causes of stress
– Teach your staff the solutions to life balance and change based on research and accepted therapeutic principles
– Give your staff expert insight into the real causes of work stress that goes beyond routine motivational speeches
– Arm each person with a practical approach to make changes in their lifestyle that will empower their work, lift their mood and last a lifetime
-Have the audience laughing while they learn
The Center for Disease Control says that more than one out of three American workers describe their jobs as “extremely stressful.” That means you and your staff. What are you doing about it? Entertaining them with a feel-good speech based on pop psychology and self-help nonsense? Why not bring in a real expert on human behavior and interpersonal relationships?
– And who – by the way – is also a professional stand-up comedian…

Keeping Leaders Healthy
No matter what career you pursue – whether business, health care, public service or non-profit – we share a critical connection. We are working in a culture of mobility, competitive individuality and media saturation. The result is that Americans lead the developed world in stress related ailments. Enjoying one’s work, contributing and leading is the desire of every productive person. Much of the current advice we hear is focused on self-help and based on popular psychology. These approaches seldom work and rarely last. Into that mix comes a new approach – based on solid research & practical application. Dr. Will Miller will offer the group a perspective that promises to leave your people energized and changed for good. And, oh by the way, they will laugh as they learn.
