Growing your Resilience to Stress
Today, many people find they are working to shorter timescales, and with more volume and task complexity in the work they do. This often means we have to work to higher expectations, and learn to handle the demands this makes on us. This means developing personal resilience and an ability to work well in pressure situations. This workshop is designed to help participants identify how they react to pressure situations at work, and how to increase their capacity to maintain performance and enjoy their work.
Participants will learn how to manage personal reactions, and develop mental toughness and resilience when encountering challenging situations. The workshop will improve people’s ability to recognise signs of pressure and have the techniques to handle this.
