Suitable for:       All What does this mean?

We live in demanding times and people want to be seen to be able to cope with the pressures that are placed upon them. Sometimes it is difficult for individuals and companies to acknowledge how stressful things might be.

You, a colleague or a member of your team may be entering a new role, experiencing a step-up in your responsibilities, covering for someone who is off, coming back to work – or maybe you just have a lot to do!

This course aims to identify, support and equip you to deal with pressure before it reaches a critical point and becomes stress. Participants will have the opportunity to explore practical and realistic tools to add to their self-help toolkit and ‘get to grips’ with the difficult situations that trigger stress.
