Feeling stressed at work? If so, you’re not alone: the 24/7/365 nature of Silicon Valley work life can take a toll on performance, health, and happiness. Join us to learn science-based practical ways to reduce and manage stress; cultivate resilience; enhance energy and focus; and boost performance, productivity, and job satisfaction.

Dr. Azarow received his master’s and doctoral degrees in counseling psychology from Northwestern University, where he was a University Scholar. He then spent four years investigating stress and resilience at Stanford University in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences as a postdoctoral fellow and staff researcher. Dr. Azarow has taught stress management and leadership skills for many years in Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and elsewhere. He designed the first comprehensive stress management and employee wellness programs at several well-known Silicon Valley companies. He currently advises a wide spectrum of client organizations on team-building and leadership development. Over a thirty-year period, he has helped numerous organizations and their employees to collaborate better and be more resilient, healthy, and productive.
