5 February 2018 10:17 am - 0     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


We are experiencing more stress today than ever before in human history. And, it is costing us. The World Health Organisation identifies stress as the second leading cause of disability worldwide costing the world economy US $ 287,956,200,000.00 every year.

Stress is also harmful to our physical and psychological health. Unmanaged stress is now known to be the second leading cause of cardiovascular disease and can increase the risk of dying from a heart attack by 250 percent. Psychologically, stress is related to anxiety, depression and work absenteeism. ‘Thriving! Positive Energy at Work for Leaders’ is a full-day highly informative and interactive workshop that helps participants identify how stress is affecting them and learn specific methods to transform the negative energy of stress into the positive energy of thriving by learning how to:


Discharge stress from your body and mind

Develop vitality through the mindful movement exercise of FlowMotion

Embrace your positive emotions by learning self-compassion

Increase your positive mental energy by discovering and maximizing your strengths

Envision your ‘best self’ through developing your best-self portrait.

Thriving! Positive Energy at Work for Leaders is conducted by Karl LaRowe. For most of his life, Rowe has been fascinated with achieving personal excellence, as a martial arts fighter and teacher, mental health therapist, manager and director, professional speaker, author, trainer and coach. He helps leaders and organisations thrive by assisting them in discovering and maximizing their strengths and positive energy. His unique perspective as a mental health professional, who incorporates positive psychology and appreciative inquiry into his talks and trainings, is forged from solid theory based on sound psychological principles and immediately applicable techniques that provide real solutions. 

Since 1997, he has given over 1000 full-day trainings to more than 50,000 professionals across the United States, Canada, Southeast Asia and the Middle East for clients such as the United States Army, Navy, Air Force and Veterans Administration, hospitals, banks and oil companies including Mubadala, the National Bank of Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Lili Pharmaceutical Company.

In Singapore, he has worked with the National Council of Social Services, Singapore Training Institute, National University of Singapore, Singapore armed forces and Trauma Recovery and Corporate Solutions. 

He has also authored a book for healthcare professionals called ‘Breath of Relief: Transforming Compassion Fatigue into Flow’ and is co-authoring a second book for corporate leaders tentatively called ‘The Stress of Success: Re-claiming Your Life as a Leader’. Rowe completed his Masters Degree at the University of Chicago, is licensed in the United States as a mental health professional and expert witness. He is a positive psychology coach. He holds a fifth degree black belt in Karate and is a Qigong instructor. 

Drawing from his own experience as a professional who has recovered from burnout and depression, Rowe will provide you a wealth of information and specific tools you can use the very next day on transforming stress and burnout into positive energy and engagement.
