08:50 "The key to this is to be able to have that capacity, to be able to have that ability to reframe and use that really powerful prefrontal cortex that all humans have that makes us so smart and so capable, is we need to know how to manage our stress levels."

11:12 "Stress can be a good thing but if you're not in touch with it, if you're not aware of it, if you don't have tools in your toolbelt to manage it, it's going to be really hard and draining on us because sales is a tough profession."

14:53 "We both know from growth mindset, you can literally strengthen muscles in your brain and change how your brain is operating by executing on things like gratitude."

22:12 "Fundamentally, you're building a culture where the individual needs to reward itself first to feel safe, as opposed to operating from a mindset where you want things like cooperation, collaboration, trust to exist."

34:24 "You need to start tracking well-being metrics and you need to start empowering people to get a better idea of where their stress levels are on a regular basis so that they can start actioning some of these strategies."
