Dr. Terry Lyles’ work is focused on teaching groups of all ages how to navigate life’s storms and difficult situations through stress utilization and work/life balance training.

Terry has spent his life measuring and studying human performance. He holds a Ph.D. in psychology, has conducted extensive research in sports science, and is an expert in biotelemetry and psycho-telemetry. Terry is recognized as a national/international educator, author, and speaker to universities, schools, Fortune 500 Companies, world-class athletes, and public audiences.

Recognized as a thought leader in his field, Dr. Terry Lyles has appeared on NBC, ABC, USA Today, CNN, Headlines News, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, FOX News, and in U.S. News & World Report. He has also hosted a premier talk show sponsored by Success Magazine and was heard on-air as the “Stress Doctor” in south Florida.

Dr. Lyles has spent the past 20 years working with a diverse group of clientele in extreme settings. He has brought the vital tool of stress utilization to organizations like NASCAR Evernham Motorsports, DaimlerChrysler, Macy’s West, Pfizer, Universal Studios, ABC, ESPN, and Disney.

Perhaps the greatest teacher has been Terry’s own personal experiences. He has voluntarily placed himself into emotionally intense environments and situations like supporting fire-rescue workers in and around Ground Zero, helped international forensic medical teams in the Asian tsunami-torn area, and served regularly as a resource for other regions experiencing hurricanes and natural disasters.

He also has served as a caretaker for his own adult son—diagnosed with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, he wakes up every day facing an uphill battle against his physical limitations. Despite being given dismal odds, his son emotes joy and powers through the day with immense motivation. His son’s example made Terry ask an impactful question, “What is my excuse?” and then “What is your excuse?”

No one should live as a slave to his or her stress.  Terry knows without a doubt that his time- tested, scientifically-measured approach to stress utilization fosters creativity, cultivates motivation, and increases productivity.
