IT’S GOOD WHEN STRESS GOADS YOU FROM YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Are you settling for your current situation in the business world instead of striding ahead on the path to increased success? Then it’s time to stretch the size of your comfort zone by taking on a special kind of stress. Though it may seem counterintuitive, pressure can actually put you in a better place professionally, as Jason explains in his recent column for Entrepreneur.com. Read an excerpt below:
“Someone approaching the microphone for the speech of their life or taking the court for the NBA championship will experience a healthy rush. In times like those, pressure is our friend providing increased drive, focus and intensity. This good pressure is called eustress and is vital to growth and productivity for individuals, teams and companies.”

JASON FORREST (two time Stevie Award winner – 2014 Silver Stevie Award for sales training program of the year, and 2013 Gold Stevie Award for sales training or education leader of the year) is an expert at creating high-performance sales organizations through sales training programs, management training programs, and cultural awareness training. He addresses beliefs (not just behaviors) to increase sales, develop leaders, implement cultural accountability, and transform companies into sales organizations. A sales professional at heart, Forrest believes in both the art and science of the sales process. Forrest’s competitive distinction is his behavior-modification approach (which focuses on people, process, and presentation) and his focus on beliefs, not just behaviors.
FORREST PERFORMANCE GROUP is a global leader and designer of corporate training programs, leadership training programs, and sales training programs. Forrest PG’s unique distinction and edge is its belief that true, permanent change begins from the top, transforms from the inside-out, and requires long-term coaching and accountability, rather than short-term training. Too many organizations are short-sighted regarding training and only provide one-day motivational events to entertain sales pros, giving them only short-term boosts in energy and temporary performance lifts. One-day events can be valuable for rejuvenating or jump-starting performance, but a complete training program with coaching along the way makes all of the difference. Increased sales, measurable ROI, accountability, tangible and relevant sales tools are just a few of the results of an FPG training program.
