LEADING CAUSE OF DISABILITY: DEPRESSION & STRESS (2020)
We are fighting a new war, an internal war that threatens us all.
The World Health Organization reports that depression and stress related problems will be the biggest cause of disability IN THE WORLD by 2020 (their original forecast of 2030 has been stepped up by 10 years). Statistics tell us that someone you know, lead, work for or love is suffering from the physical, emotional and/or cognitive decline attributed to depression and stress related problems. The most common reason for death of men between the ages of 50 and 60 in both the UK and Canada is suicide.
What we are doing is NOT working.
The smartest and fastest among us are dropping like flies. $10 billion+ a year is spent by American corporations on executive stress related physical and emotional ailments, addictions, burnouts, and breakdowns. $300 billion+ is the total stress related price tab for the general USA working population.

It is a passion that began when I was the first woman CEO in my field, and that continued as I was forced to start my life and career from ground zero two more times. No one thought I could or would survive, and I surprised them all. While the crises in my life were something that most people will thankfully never face, they did teach me a skill set that was made for these times. That skills set was 3Q.

Do you believe in the power of human being better not simply doing more than ever before?
I do, and I believe in the power of three strengths (3Q strengths) that helped me and have helped my clients achieve breakthrough results because they are strength we can develop in the face of change, challenges, crises and failures.
Strengths that helped me survive and thrive when thrown from the mountain of success to a dark abyss where my ability to simply survive was in question. While few of you will related to being cast from a very successful business career to the abyss of struggle, I can tell you that it was the best training ground for developing a critical skill set that I believe can help many.
