human systems operate under STRESS.
There are two principal types of stress:
is caused by conflicts that arise among character
parameters; that is conflict within the human system. For
example, some people have double or even triple sided characters.
While we can only have one true character, people with multiple characters
operate under stress since they are acting out of character a lot
of times dependent on environmental influences. Optimax uses the
Character Assessment to identify these and other character conflicts.
Once these conflicts are recognized, Optimax can direct a person to
understand they can properly deal with this tension so as to reduce
internal stress levels.
STRESS develops from conflicts between a person and
environmental factors related
to work, family or even hobbies. For example, working in a job or
profession that does not align with a person's competencies or for
a manager with whom you cannot communicate
is common, yet stressful for many people. Personal relationships
are often stressful because parents do not understand their unique
characters, that of their children and how different character types
interact. Relationships with friends can be stressful for similar
reasons. External stress can also result when there isn't a proper balance
in time committed to the three primary activity areas of life. An
example would be a busy executive who does not spend enough time with
his family or in doing things that relaxes or rejuvenates his body and mind.
Optimax is able to identify solutions to these types of
stresses through an understanding of character and an evaluation of a
person's current state of balance with the use of our
Life-Balance Assessment tool.
Regardless of the type of stress or its root cause it is essential that
it be identified and remedied. Energy used to combat stress can then be
directed to productive activities that will enhance individual performance
