Overview

Coping with pressure and stress can be a challenge at any time. It can be very difficult struggling with the constant demands of time and output, work while trying to juggle some sort of work-life balance, and people are not always able to cope. This means sick absences may rise, behaviours may change, conflict rises in the workplace and productivity is affected adversely.

Understanding how you can build resilience and enhance your wellbeing, or provide support for others can be a game changer.

This training seminar addresses the differences between pressure and stress, what they mean, how they impact, how they can manifest in you and others, and why it is imperative to do something about it.

Who is the course designed for?

Everybody!

The course helps people to identify strategies to manage your own potential stress factors and come away with an action plan. It aims to deal with increasing your influence at work to cope with unreasonable demands, as well as coping techniques to deal with pressures which are outside of your control or influence. It is also for people within organisations who have responsibility for helping, supporting and developing colleagues. 

How will you benefit from attending?

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

• Identify the difference between stress and pressure
• Understand the manifestations of stress
• Understand why it is important to address it, and how to do something about it
• Strategise how to deal with workplace and outside work pressures
• Action plan individual strategies to apply at work and beyond
