On the day we will explore the difference between pressure and stress. Personal triggers/stressors and internal responses to external circumstance will also be examined and where strategies can be utilised, or developed to eliminate, or ease the pressure of the working day, or environment. Individual strategies will also be discussed and explored to support the staff in managing the pressures of the work environment, and dealing with organisational responsibilities, and change.
Although the knowledge and skills learned on the training will support the staff in working more effectively, the training is also designed to support people on a personal level, as the strategies can be utilised outside of the working environment too.
The training will be supported by the staff learning a variety of easy to learn exercises and practices, such as relaxation, breathing and meditation exercises, backed up with a comprehensive audio/visual presentation, and experiential learning processes. Hand-outs and worksheets will also be provided, and post training resource information will also be forwarded by e-mail to all those attending.
