Three top level stress researchers built something unique
Dr. Judith Andersen, a Canadian professor of psychology, Dr. Harri Gustafsberg, a former operative commander of the Finnish Special Unit and Dr. Joseph Arpaia, an American psychiatrist. By combining their expertise, they have created The URSUS Program, a unique scientifically-proven stress and resilience coaching method.
The method has been tested by the Finnish special unit, and it dramatically improves performance and resilience in extreme circumstances. It is even more helpful for everyday stress management.
The URSUS Program coaching method was previously available for the Special Unit, top level executives and other professionals. Now the method is available for everyone online.

TRUSTED BY PROFESSIONALS
Dr. Harri Gustafsberg worked for over 20 years in the Finnish Special Unit. As an operational commander, he wanted to understand why they kept making mistakes and lost their situational awareness during critical operations. The reason was the stress reaction.
He realized how little he knew about the mind-body connection and handling stress in extreme situations. He developed a scientifically proven coaching method together with high-level stress researchers and the Police Special Intervention Unit.
This method dramatically improves performance and resilience in extreme circumstances. It is even more helpful for everyday stress management. That why after his career in the Police Special Intervention Unit, Harri received his doctorate in this method.
He began coaching professionals from various fields around Finland. The impact on people's stress management, resilience, and quality of life was so impressive that Harri wrote a book about the Police Special Intervention Unit and the method and it became a bestseller book in Finland. It was so popular that it was made into television series bearing the same name and aired already for two seasons.
Since the method has been so successful in Finland, Harri wanted to make it available to everyone around the globe. Are you ready to succeed more than you ever imagined?

"I worked for 12 years in the Finnish Special Unit, and the last years as an Operational Commander. After URSUS training I was able to adjust my own physiology and emotional state to the level that the task required. I was also able to decrease the increased stress level which leads to higher performance, perception and better decision making I could also raise my alertness when it lowered on long lasting missions. Knowing my own physiology and body better improved the recognition of mind-body connection. Now after practicing URSUS method for longer it has become a part of me. When my body alerts me of increased stress levels, I automatically start to adjust my own physiology unconsciously. This skill has helped me to perform better on difficult tasks and recover faster from strenuous work. My overall awareness, situational awareness and focus have increased and sharpened."
Gary, 45 Operational Commander
"The Ursus Program gave me great tools for both working and personal life. Now I can manage pressure and stressful situations better. The education expanded my aspects and thoughts about things. I also noticed how extensively stress management helps us in different areas and situations. I would go over the program anytime again and I highly recommend it.”

"I recommend Coaching Program to everyone! I have a 40-year career in corporate world behind me and now moving to a new phase in my life. I have seen several coaching programs for leadership, stress management, emotional intelligence, social interaction, “take care of yourself” etc – you name it. This is the best – it summarizes the essential aspects and gives well proven and easy-to-apply tools and practices to connect your mind and body for a better life. Better everyday life! Now it is clear to me of how to manage stress, how to keep my mind clear and focused whatever happens, how to interact with my emotions, how to listen to my body, and how to change my unwelcome habits to the better ones. Thank you Harri, Joe, Judith and Teemu!"

"I have always been interested in the human mind and how we humans react in different situations. Inspired by this, I started the URSUS program to educate myself more. A year and a half later, I can say that it has definitely been one of the best investments of my life. I knew I was going to get a lot of hard facts, but I never expected how much it could shape me as a person - in a positive way. This is not only my experience - I have received many praises from my family, my company’s Board of Directors and many others after going through the program. I absolutely recommend the professionalism of these coaches!"
