The Impact of Workplace Stress
- 40% of job turnover is due to stress.
- Healthcare expenditures are 50% greater for workers who report elevated levels of stress.
- Job stress is the source of more health complaints than financial or family problems.
- The average cost of absenteeism in a large company is more than $3.6 million per year.
- Depression is the most significant single predictor of absenteeism and work-related performance.
- Depression, a common side effect of job stress in employees, is associated with 10 annual sick days.
- Insurance data shows insurance claims for stress-related industrial accidents cost twice as much as non-stress-related industrial accidents.
as a result
Your employees aren’t as
healthy, productive, or creative
as they could be.
Companies pay higher medical and insurance costs because of stress-related issues.
Stress costs U.S. businesses roughly $300 billion a year due to absenteeism, reduced productivity levels, and employee turnover.
Sixty percent of lost workdays each year can be attributed to stress.
How Much Stress Is Costing Your Business
what we know
Most People Struggle with Stress in 4 Ways.
- They believe there isn’t anything they can do to keep from getting stressed. It’s like stress is a virus or bacteria that they catch, like a cold, and suddenly they’re stressed.
- They don’t know how to turn stress off.
- They have no idea how to prevent stress from happening in the first place. Preventing stress isn’t an option.
- They have symptoms of stress that won’t go away – headaches, sleep problems, frequent illness, pain, burnout, depression, and a long list of health problems that get worse, not better.
How things would be different if…
- Your employees came to work each day feeling refreshed from a good night’s sleep.
- Your employees experienced increasingly better health, rather than increasingly worse health.
- Your employees struggled less with headaches, getting sick so much, irritability, missing work, feeling miserable.
- Health problems like heart disease, hypertension, burnout, depression, and other chronic conditions started going away.
Imagine how things could be different if your employees really knew how to reduce and even prevent their stress.

Examples of Stress Mastery Workshops
A broad base of knowledge is the key to success with stress. Advance your stress management skills with these highly customizable workshops by Dr. Michael Olpin.
Understand the Root Cause of ALL Your Stress
Once you learn the real source of your stress and start learning tools to prevent your stress, you start on the road to stress-free living.
You probably think stress is inevitable, that the world is stressful, and there’s nothing you can do to change either. Most people
In this workshop, Dr. Olpin explores the reality of all of our stress as he busts the myth that there’s nothing you can do to reduce or even prevent stress.
Once you understand how stress really happens, you immediately get a foothold on doing something about it.
In this workshop, you’ll also understand why up to 90% of the ills and maladies of today have a stress component — stress makes them worse. You’ll be motivated to make positive changes to improve your health.
Preventing Stress is the smartest approach to gaining mastery over stress. Learn the powerful prevention skills so you can eliminate stress from your life.
In this workshop, you learn how to control stress from a cognitive level. Stress ultimately starts with our thoughts.
When you figure out the type of thoughts that activate stress and the way of thinking that prevents stress, you gain real control over stress — you prevent it from happening at all.
Mindfulness – The Master Stress Management Skill
Once you’ve learned the power of living in the moment, everything changes … for the better. Mindfulness is the heart of everything related to stress mastery.
You’ve probably heard a lot these days about mindfulness; it’s being talked about everywhere.
Unfortunately, you’ve never really learned what mindfulness is or how to be mindful all the time.
When you learn how to be mindful, everything changes: You experience everything more deeply, you perform better at everything, your relationships improve, you enjoy each moment as it happens.
Mindfulness is a game-changer!
How to Meditate
A chaotic mind is a scattered mind. A still mind is a productive mind. Learn the simple skill that brings stillness and peace
Meditation isn’t some strange practice that yogis do for 20 years before they notice a difference in their stress. Meditation is powerful practice of quieting the mind, deeply relaxing the body, and waking you up so you can do everything you want to do with new levels of enjoyment and focus.
And you notice the effects the very first time you meditate.
People who meditate get sick less frequently; they age more slowly; everything feels more relaxed.
Once you’ve finished this meditation workshop, you’ll be an expert at the easy skill of meditation.
For many, the most important thing they can do to benefit their health and feel some sense of control over their well-being, is to learn how to turn off their chronic stress.
If you have many or any symptoms of stress – headaches, muscle pain, health problems, difficulty sleeping, emotional challenges, or any other sickness that’s caused by too much stress, this is the workshop for you.
Learn what works (and what doesn’t) to turn off your stress — experience how it feels to be in balance, calm, and relaxed.
When you finish this workshop, you will have a whole toolbox of tools that work to turn off your stress, anytime, anywhere.
And once you turn off your stress, your symptoms of stress also go away.
Once you become conscious of how your everyday thoughts lead to how you feel and how stressed you are, you gain control over how you feel.
Our dominant thoughts become our realities. In this workshop, we focus on how we work with our subconscious mind to gain control over this process.
More than 95% of the things we do each day happen below conscious levels — from eating and taking care of ourselves to how we heal from a cut or scrape. The subconscious mind is the force, the engine that makes most things happen.
We habitually say things to ourselves about ourselves; our self-talk happens without our conscious mind taking much notice. If our consistent thoughts are mean or degrading, the subconscious goes to work creating those realities. For example, if our thoughts are consistently fearful or depressing, we find ourselves feeling afraid or depressed.
In this workshop, you learn how to work with the subconscious mind so you can rise above the habits that keep you stuck.
Empathy & Understanding
When we understand what the other person’s needs, desires, and challenges are, we are in a better position to help.
In this workshop, you learn when and how to use empathy.
Empathy is all about being a good listener. You may think you are a good listener, but by the end of this workshop, you will surprise yourself how much better your listening skills can become.
People who function at optimum levels consistently do a few things that set them apart from everyone else. Learn what Olympic athletes and top performing business executives do to perform at maximum levels.
Peak Performers aren’t gifted or more talented than any else. They simply do specific things in specific ways consistently.
In this workshop, you will learn the five peak performing behaviors, how to incorporate them easily into your daily life, and how to train others to do the same.
Whether you are a business person, an athlete, an artist, a coach, or anyone else who wants to perform at your peak, or help others, this is the workshop for you.
And much more
Let’s get together to discuss your needs. I’m confident the tools I present in trainings, workshops, or coaching sessions do work to help people feel a lot better.
My biggest stressor was never getting enough sleep because I was constantly doing things, out late, never sleeping through the night, always having a million things on my mind and just always going, never sleeping. You really helped me with that, especially when I would do those relaxation exercises right before bed. Once I put everything down and away, those exercises really helped me fall asleep; they helped so much I was usually asleep before I could get 10 minutes into the exercise. I also have become more relaxed, and not so easily irritated.
more peace and Joy
I did not expect there to be such awesome benefits. I have relieved symptoms I have had problems with for years such as sleeping problems and physical pain. I can have “sensitive” discussions with my children and husband with amazing results. I am finding that I am being “aware” of my surroundings and enjoying my days, not just “running around, with my head cut off, like a chicken.” I also am feeling more peace and joy in my days!!
I have been searching for peace and emotional healing for the about 15 yrs. Even though I have learned
a few tips, I have never been introduced to the variety of healing and peaceful techniques that Mike has shown me.
Between meditation, yoga, empathetic listening and being mindful, I see my life in a different way. I am finding that I am being aware of my surroundings and enjoying my days.
“When I started this, I had no idea that it would be life-changing for me. I was honestly at a low point coming out of one of the hardest years of my life. I feel extremely blessed to have learned so much about myself and how I can take control and manage my stress!”
I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder about three years ago. Since then I have been on and off medication, seen psychiatrists and therapists, and nothing I have tried to help manage it has been nearly as helpful as what I learned here. The information is so valuable and I wish everyone could take it.
