After years of trying, in 2011 Stress finally became this country’s No1 cause of workplace absence! (CIPD). It’s little wonder, with more pressure than ever on modern workers: Achieving ‘More With Less’, constant change, role uncertainty, job insecurity, and technology that blurs the borders of ‘work’ and ‘home’, making it harder to switch off.
The need to ‘be seen to be able to cope’ becomes the blinkers we wear that allows stress to walk right up to us unchallenged. This session is designed to help you take those blinkers off, recognise stress, and help you manage yourself – and others – to avoid stress’ attentions.
We’ll explore stress, its warning signs and its impacts, and then examine the techniques you can use – and share with others – to ward off stress and keep you healthy and productive.
By the end of this training event you will be able to:
- State the different types of stress, and describe their physiological impacts
- Describe how to manage stress caused by time-constraints
- Explain how to avoid stress caused by conflict
- Define what you need to do to manage stress caused by fatigue
Cost: Free to Service Network members and £50 + VAT for non members. Includes refreshments.
