You might get questions in a program about how women and men compare when it comes to pressure. While this requires a much bigger explanation than what space permits me here, look for IHHP's white paper on Women Under Pressure to gain more insight. There is unique features about the female brain that allows women to manage pressure situations differently. Continue to article

ELT portal for product updates, marketing support materials and so much more.
Women have a brain based difference that predisposes them to weigh more variables, see more context and visualize a wider array of solutions and outcomes to a problem when they or their organization are under pressure.
Organizations that tap into this unique strength of decision-making and have more women in top leadership positions have stronger relationships with customers and shareholders, have a more diverse and profitable business, and outperform the competition in every measure of profitability: equity, revenue and assets.
Our study of 6,000 women under pressure found that women face a second layer of pressure not experienced by men, that gets in the way of organizations being able to leverage the unique skill-set woman offer, and acts as a barrier to a woman's career.
What the Women Under Pressure initiative will answer:
What is unique about a women's brain and why is that important to organizations?
What is the second layer of pressure that women face that is different from men?
What did we learn from our research study of 6,000 women?
What strategies can women learn to perform better under pressure?

IHHP is thrilled to have Kerri Dobszewicz from Allstate Canada join Bill Benjamin and our partners at The Institute for Performance and Learning for our June 21st webinar.
We asked Kerri a couple of questions about why Allstate Canada chose IHHP and what difference it has made to their company culture. Read about what Kerri had to say.
"We first were introduced to IHHP and the concepts of
Emotional Intelligence at our annual management conference in 2012 when
Dr. J.P. Pawliw-Fry was our keynote speaker. He inspired so much interest in EI, that we invited him and a group of IHHP facilitators to come back the next year and facilitate a mini-workshop for us.
Through the information presented over those two years, our Leadership Team agreed that a higher level of Emotional Intelligence was a necessary skill for us to develop at Allstate Canada.
certified as a trainer for the Performing under Pressure: The Science of Emotional Intelligence course in April, 2014 and began rolling out the 2 day workshop to all People Leaders at Allstate Canada in November of that year.
Getting started with a new program is never easy but I have received amazing support from my partners at IHHP.
Cranla Warren and
Christie Higho have been with me every step of the way. No matter what I needed or how many questions I asked (and there were a lot!), they were there to help.
Since I began offering the course, we have had over 170 People Leaders attend and the response has been amazing. The best part of facilitating this is that people want to attend. Word of mouth from participants has been so positive; I have people requesting to be in upcoming sessions.
The biggest surprise to those who have attended is how much they have used the skill in their personal lives as well as their business lives. The course has now been integrated into our overall Management Curriculum at Allstate Canada."
