Suitable for:       All What does this mean?

In this session we will learn why calmness is so important to effectiveness: how hurrying is counter productive and what we can do to remain calm even in the busiest of times in order to ensure we are always most effective.

Stress is a very real issue that we all need to be able to deal so it doesn’t build up and overwhelm us. It can be to do with your work life, your personal life, or everything in life. Work is more demanding and complex than ever. Many of us now work in 24/7 environments and that can affect our home life too. In our high-pressure workplaces, staying productive and engaged can be challenging.

It can be tough enough to manage your own stress. But even tougher to help your team.

    This session will look at how we can help ourselves and others deal with stress and overwhelm. We’ll cover what to say as well as what not to say and how we can ensure our minds and working practices do not affect our team’s performance.

    This is a pragmatic session (not a therapy session) about how we can acknowledge, take responsibility for and ultimately deal with the things that are holding us back.

    Who’s it for?

    Everyone struggling with stress or being overwhelmed at the moment, or who has suffered in the past.

    Everyone who manages a team who would like to help themselves and others deal with the pressures of everyday life and work better.
