Key Benefits of the Stress Management for Manager's Course

With full participation managers will:

  • Support the organisation in meeting legal and HSE compliance responsibilities
  • Understand the risk implications of stress for employees and the organisation
  • Recognise the early warning signs of stress in order to identify problems early
  • Appreciate what influences individual vulnerability and risk to organisation
  • Be proactive about stress by learning to use frameworks and practical approaches/tools      

Organisations are currently adjusting to new ways of working as they grapple with the stress and anxiety triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.  Effective leaders and managers acknowledge and appreciate the stress their colleagues are experiencing and recognise the importance of having support in place.

The Stress Management Training for Managers provides managers with the knowledge, resources and confidence to reduce the risk of stress for those they work with, particularly their own teams.

Delegates have the opportunity to discuss situations they are confident with and others they are challenged by.  In addition to acquiring new skills and resources, delegates are also able to share best practice strategies with each other.

The training provided on the Stress Management Training for Managers course is very practical and uses a number of specially developed diagnostic and proactive tools to minimise the effect of stressful situations on both people and the organisation. The content covers stress-related legislation and HSE initiatives.

The course is highly interactive and contains a variety of group and individual exercises; including case studies, scenarios, personal reflection and action planning.
