Building Resilience
Eat Grass or Run for your life!

The World Health Organization has declared stress to be one of the biggest health risk factors of the 21st century. In today’s organisations stress has become a key factor in the management of human resources. Studies show that the number of stress related sick days has dramatically increased in the industrialised countries over the past decade.

Absenteeism and presenteeism is costing Australian businesses over $10 billion a year with an average of 3.2 days lost per employee per year due to stress related causes. The burden of workplace stress on employees is significant and represents an area in which preventative measures produce strong economic and productivity gains for employers and the broader economy.

How to be a trusted advisor
(CPD Accredited)

Developing trust is one of the key success criteria for any advisor. When it is present it strengthens client relationships, builds loyalty, promotes advocacy and increases revenue.

When we study the most trusted and least trusted industries in Australia, the financial services industry is ranked as one of the lowest. This has significant implications not only for advisors but also for the many Australian’s, who due to their scepticism, don’t accept their sound advice.

With the understanding on how to build a higher-level trust, advisors are enabled to shift this perspective and be perceived as the custodian of their client’s financial wellbeing and the “Trusted Advisor”.

Meiron says, “As a young healthy and fit 45-year-old male I never would have imagined that one day I would be given news that I have an aggressive cancer so invasive that it could take my life.

Naively I thought that cancer happens to other people and that somehow I was immune to contracting such a severe illness.

The irony is that I was an advisor for over 11 years specialising in risk sales and authored a book D-Stress, Building Resilience in Challenging Times only two years prior to my diagnosis.

Little did I know that I would be claiming on the policies I sold and would be using the resilience techniques I wrote about to get through such a challenging time…”
