About the Authors

Allie Edwardsson began her career as a trainer in intercultural communication, Business English and presentation techniques.

She became interested early on in how stress and performance pressure affect communication. Her clients might complain about their English or presentation skills when the real problem was time management or performing under pressure. Sometimes, for example, they had not prioritized preparation time.

Despite her interest in time management and stress, she herself experienced burnout in 2013 and wants to help others understand the importance of recovery and how to avoid burnout.

Allie works as a skills coach and trainer for managers and leaders, and with Learning & Development. She has also written the e-book Intercultural Fluency for Bookboon.

Mona Edwardsson is a certified teacher (Ethics and Leadership, Psychology, Philosophy, Religion) and has worked with education at all levels from secondary school to the School of Economics. She has also worked internationally as a consultant in communication skills.

Mona has lived and worked in Sweden, England and the USA. At the end of 2011, she had a stress breakdown and has since done research on her own within stress, diet and exercise. She has trained as both a nutrition consultant and exercise instructor. Mona’s poetry collection “Poems for Grief Recovery” was published in 2015.

Mona wants to continue helping others manage stress and prevent burnout. In 2020 she attended vocational training and is now a Certified Stress and Relaxation Educator with a cognitive orientation and a focus on stress management and recovery (Sverige Hälsan AB, 2020).
