Success Over Stress

We Help individuals and organizations manage stress and become more productive

Jeff Gero, Ph.D. Stress Management Specialist, Sports Psychology Coach - Dr. Gero is a pioneer in the field of stress management and the creator of the Success Over Stress System. For over 35 years, Dr. Gero has worked with many organizations and individuals dealing with a variety of stressors and organizational challenges. He delivered the first stress management program for the California Department of Corrections at San Quentin Prison; he assisted the Los Angeles Times with the stress surrounding the 1984 Olympics; he helped Allied Signal with the stress involving a plant closing; helped JPL (NASA) deal with the stress after the failure of the Mars Project; and, he assisted paramedics in the California State Firefighters Association with job stress. Other clients include State Compensation Insurance Fund, General Motors, Sheraton Hotels, Dept. of the Army, Xerox, Amgen, Hawaiian Telephone, State of Hawaii Department of Health and Dole . He is former director of the Health Awareness Institute and the Stress Management Institute of California. Prior to entering the consulting field and working with individuals, Dr. Gero was a very successful Madison Avenue real estate executive. He has since been on staff at the University of Hawaii, Antioch University, Southern States University, The Institute of Business Management Entrepreneurship, The Union Graduate School, and the Hughes Institute for Professional Development. He is former director of the Health Awareness Institute and the Stress Management Institute of California. Dr. Gero researched and wrote his doctoral dissertation on meditation. As part of his research he began a self-imposed meditation program. He sat and meditated in a box daily and over a six month period built up his meditation time to 2 1/2 hours. Jeff realized that the nature of the mind is to keep busy, usually focusing on problems, worries, anxieties and fears, creating an unhealthy environment. The Yoga literature compares the mind to a drunken monkey that has been bit by a scorpion. Very Active! It becomes our challenge to refocus and calm our mind by meditating, which is holding the mind on one thought or object for a period of time. Researchers have found that meditation benefits both the body and mind by lowering blood pressure, drug dependency, cholesterol, anxiety levels, asthma and other psychosomatic dis-eases while increasing stress resilience, ability to fall asleep, brain hemisphere synchronicity and alertness. This experience and knowledge led him to teach stress management and meditation to organizations and individuals. Over the years thousands of people throughout the world have benefited from Dr. Gero’s programs and coaching. In his published book, Secrets to Success at Work, he uses his unique ability to weave vital success principles into a delightful story. Dr. Gero co-wrote and co-produced a relaxation and stress management video hosted by Dennis Weaver, has produced a variety of stress management, healing and peak-performance CD=s and has authored a manual for individuals to implement his Success Over Stress system. He has appeared on many TV and radio programs, has co-written two screen plays. Jeff was granted a United States patent for a computer biofeedback mouse that helps reduce stress while enhancing productivity. In addition to working with organizations, Dr. Gero coaches athletes to enhance their performance. At age 45, Jeff began competing in sprint triathlons and playing golf. He began to use the tools he was teaching others to improve his own sport abilities. His compassion for teenagers and love of sports led him to work with professional athletes and students from local high schools. (Agoura, El Camino, Westlake, Thousand Oaks, Grant, Taft and Newbury Park, high schools.) Athletes from various sports include baseball, tennis, golf, football, basketball, gymnastics, swimming and soccer. To help athletes develop their mental game Dr. Gero developed a systematic program which includes a audio CD that imprints positive mental programming for success. He was the sports psychology coach to the Newbury Park High School baseball team who won the CIF championship in 2012. His Popular CD for mental training is being used by professional major league baseball players and golfers. His training sessions includes, staying calm under pressure, building confidence, visualization, relaxation, affirmation and power words for getting into the optimal sports zone. Dr. Gero has served on the board of the American Society of Training and Development, and continues to serve on the board of two non-profit education organizations. He makes time to meditate and exercise almost every day. He also enjoys playing golf, hiking, and having a good laugh!

Stress vs Performance

What is the relationship between stress and performance?

#DrJeffGero #SuccessOverStress #StressSurvivalKit

[08/06/18]   Most of the stress we deal with today is self generated by our mind in the form of worry, anger, fear of the future, thoughts of negative experiences, relationship problems, money problems, traffic and on and on. By realizing that our thoughts create the stress response we can develop awareness and learn not to focus on and not be controlled by stress producing thoughts. We can also make the time each day to relax, let go of stress, lighten up, feel peaceful and create the balance we need in our lives.
#DrJeffGero #SuccessOverStress #StressSurvivalKit

The subconscious mind is where impressions of past experiences are stored and results in conditioning. Every impression arouses the ego sense and it is this identification with the ego sense as the impression that causes most of our emotional pain and suffering.

Stress Meter is a biofeedback device that measures your degree of relaxation through changes in skin temperature. Use it at room temperature. (About 72 degrees) It will rate your current level of stress or relaxation. Simply place your thumb or forefinger on the black square for about 15 seconds, relax and watch the color change. Under stress, muscles tense and blood flow decreases. Relaxation expands the capillaries; increases blood flow and temperature rises, which changes the color. Using the Stress Meter you can observe changes in your level of relaxation and begin to associate a specific color with that feeling of relaxation or stress.

Skin temperature below 84 degrees is black
Skin temperature at 84 degrees is red
Skin temperature at 87 degrees is green
Skin temperature at 91 degrees is blue

If you are in the black use a breathing technique to relax.

One of the joys of what I do is helping companies and organizations incorporate meditation into their work environment. It has been my experience that meditators make much better leaders than stressed out and aggressive ones. They understand their reactions to stressful situations and understand their impact on others. They are far better at inspiring and motivating employees to take on greater responsibilities, having greater self-confidence and at aligning them around common missions and values. They lead by example and employees don’t even feel like they are being led because they feel empowered, appreciated and confident.

[07/29/17]   TRANSFORMATIONAL THINKING
Improving Personal Effectiveness
Jeff Gero, Ph.D.

We need to look at the way we think and develop new, more effective beliefs and behaviors so we can react to life situations from an objective perspective. This will increase our ability to function optimally. The goal is to give up old patterns that don’t serve us, or get us the results we want. . As Albert Einstein said, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
Transformational thinking is a reprograming process of the old system.

Developing this transformational quality begins a process of becoming more detached by observing and being aware of which part of us is reacting. Detachment is the ability to think and act objectively, clearly and responsibly. This doesn’t mean you are cold and uncaring. Let’s say we are two beings. Our personality, with its specific programing and the being that strives to react from our higher, more conscious self. We have to give up being right and wanting to win for the change to occur. It becomes more important to hold the space of kindness and compassion. If we change the way look at and react to life situations the outcome will change.

The three steps toward transformational thinking are changing perception, breaking from past programing and viewing situations objectively by having a detached attitude. By integrating transformational thinking, decisions and actions will now flow naturally from our higher self. Yes, there may be conflict with the old self, but surrender its hold on you. This is your challenge and a vehicle for growth. Allow your desire for change and to be a better person to lead you down the correct path. I like what William James the psychologist and philosopher said, “The greatest discovery in our generation is that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”

20 Qualities of a Transformational Thinker

1. Not judging, blaming or criticizing
2. Releasing unproductive beliefs
3. Living in the moment; choosing happiness
4. Trusting in the process of life
5. Not defending your position
6. Having an attitude of gratitude
7. Being willing to take a risk
8. Seeing obstacles as opportunities
9. Making daily contact with your peaceful self
10. Taking responsibility for your reality
11. Following your joy and excitement
12. Being proactive, not reactive
13. Forgiving and releasing anger quickly
14. Maintaining balance, having fun
15. Knowing and respecting yourself
16. Seeking fulfillment inside
17. Becoming comfortable not thinking
18. Developing detachment
19. Expecting and honoring change
20. Serving others
