TRAINING: Coping with Stress

Surviving and Thriving in Modern Life

Stress is endemic in our society with people facing anxiety and pressure both from work and from home. Most of us face a barrage of digital information, have high expectations and too many things to do in too little time. On top of this, managers hold the responsibility of delivering targets, looking after their staff and dealing with their own issues - when they can find a moment. It’s no wonder we can all become overloaded.

Coping with Stress looks at the underlying reasons that people experience stress and offers delegates an opportunity to assess their personal responses. The course empowers them to make positive changes to the way they react to and cope with stressful situations.

What participants can expect

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

  • Recognise the physical and mental signs of stress
  • Identify their own personal triggers
  • Explore the process of DOING stress
  • Cope with challenging situations
  • Use techniques and choices to control their stress levels.

Coping with Stress will give you new options for handling and coping with stress and will enable you to cope better with any specific stressors you face; be they personal, work-induced or both.

Pre-course work includes submitting a Stress Audit Manager (SAM) survey. If you like, you can do two - one in the context of work and a second one in the context of your private life. The results of the survey are confidential and will be given to you during the course. You will also be working with some poignant pre-course questions.

On the day itself, you will enjoy individual, pair and group work. No one is required to say or talk about anything they would prefer not to disclose. All discussions in the training room will remain private and will not be disclosed to anyone outside the group.
