Working And Living Successfully With Stress, Pressure And Change

This one-day management training course is focused on giving participants ‘time out’ to help them understand the pressures that can be generated by organisational change, and recognise their own and other’s behaviour when working through change. We will also be examining the physical and emotional signs of stress and adopting actions to help manage those pressures. There will be a number of opportunities for self-assessment, aiming at supporting participants in understanding their own personal pressures, their individual responses to those pressures, and the effect stress may be having on them.
