#WorkTrends Preview: Using Empathy to Reduce Anxiety in the Workplace

Whether we like to admit it or not, stress and anxiety levels in the workplace continue to rise. And these levels do impact the workplace. According to the American Institute of Stress one million US employees miss work every day due to stress. On top of that 56 percent of employees who are stressed or suffer from anxiety say it impacts their performance in the workplace.

Using the power of empathy, brain science, and cognitive behavioral therapy provide people with a comprehensive self-help tool to lessen stress and create life balance. So how can using this tool help employees to be more productive, focused, collaborative, and more relaxed in their job?

On Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 1pm ET #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro and her special guest Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli discuss the importance of using empathy, brain science and cognitive behavioral therapy to advance our mental well-being and workplace relationships.
