Steve recognizes what often remains invisible yet powerful within any organization – the perpetual buzz of anxiety. How we manage anxiety matters, and Steve provides wisdom for every one of us navigating the invisible forces at work impacting our work and our health
Chuck Degroat
I have struggled with anxiety all my life, and the only way I have learned to live with it is not to fight it away, but to invite God to be with me in it. That is exactly what Steve Cuss helps you to do. His words about inviting God into our anxiety resonate when they're applied to leading a team, a family, and ourself--often the most challenging person of all to lead. 
Laura Turner
Every leader faces a unique kind of anxiety that comes from knowing that we are not quite what we need to be. With disarming vulnerability and keen new insight, Steve invites us to look more deeply at the way we lead and the way our teams function. Through guided personal reflection and system analysis, Steve imparts wisdom that will help leaders last and churches thrive. 
Glenn Packiam
Not only will we become less anxious, we’ll become more whole, hopeful and fruitful. We’ll have a restored vision for how God is shaping and using us, limited and broken though we may be. A much-needed resource for the church in these anxious times.
Mandy Smith
Steve Cuss prepares us to unlock our leadership potential in profound ways in Managing Leadership Anxiety: Yours and Theirs. He diagnoses huge pitfalls and challenges and shows us how to lead well in the face of unknowns. 
Jud and Lori Wilhite
I have seen the power of genograms and differentiation in my own life. Steve takes these and many other tools to help us enter the world of noticing and moving through internal anxiety and group dynamics.

Can I go through the participant videos without reading the book?

The video collections only work alongside the book. It is available in print, digital or audible versions and you can purchase it here.  

Help! I need the book now.

You were born in the right era. You can get instant access through Kindle or Audible right now. 

Why choose streaming?

Streaming is like Netflix. The videos are online and you need internet to watch, but you can watch anytime as often as you like. 

Why choose download?

This is best for larger groups. You get the actual (large!) files and can share them easier and you do not need internet to access them.

Can I share the downloads once I buy them?

The downloadable videos and PDFs are all protected by copyright. You may only share them within your organization. 

I am a practictioner, what are my options?

I offer videos and PDFs as stand alone purchases that are useful to therapists, grad students and chaplains. 

Can I show a video to a paying audience?

You will need to contact me for a licensing fee to broadcast any videos to a paying audience (such as a graduate school class.) 

What do the videos offer that the book doesn't?

The videos have some new content, but mostly they give a step by step guide for a group to engage the book tools together. For example, the videos cover more depth on genogram construction etc.

The videos plus book are designed to lead you through a journey in 12 sessions.
