Fight, Flight or Freeze

This presentation will explain how our built-in Fight, Flight, or Freeze response throws us into survival mode and shares three tools to short-circuit that response and get us back to a place of reasoned thought. These tools take anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes and will help you start your day off powerfully, keep your energy running strong all day, and bring you back to a place of power when the inevitable “hits” of life come your way.

Organized in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Survey Center.
