How to achieve high performance under stress | Jannell MacAulay | TEDxABQ
We all want to perform our best in every facet of our lives. In fact, each of us strives to maintain or even accelerate our professional success without sacrificing ourselves, specifically our health and relationships, along the way. But it is extremely difficult to do in reality! Dr. MacAulay, military leader and pilot, academic, educator, and mother of two, relied on her experience, education, and training to achieve high performance. After an unconventional wake-up call spotlighted her performance vulnerability, she realized how much of her moment-to-moment life she was missing and how it was adversely affecting her health and her ability to thrive at work and at home. How many of us struggle with this same dilemma? Dr. MacAulay shares her solution to high performance under stress, which also allows her to cultivate the skills for personal care and recovery. Dr. Janell MacAulay specializes in performance under stress and creating mindful leaders who thrive in their workspace and life space.

She is a US Air Force Academy graduate with a master’s in Exercise Physiology and a PhD focused in Strategic Health & Human Performance.
