Potentially stressful situations are a fact of life in the fast-paced world of work. However, stress can become a serious condition, adversely affecting lives and costing businesses millions in lost hours due to sickness when it is not managed properly. This short online course is designed for individuals and organisations who wish to implement strategies to positively manage stress with the aim of making the workplace a happier and more productive place.
What Does the Course Involve?
You’ll begin by exploring what stress actually is and how it can affect different people in different ways in their day-to-day working lives. Next, you’ll look at ways that stress can be managed and overcome, both for you and in your interactions with your colleagues. Importantly, there is a focus on the fact that problems and difficulties will always occur but it’s the way we react to them that matters when we are trying to reduce stress.
