The Practical Approaches to Handling Pressure course enables participants to understand the meaning of stress and how to differentiate it from healthy pressure. They will learn to recognise the signs and sources of stress; assess their wellbeing and work-life balance; understand the importance of individual factors such as perception; and discover how to apply relevant coping strategies.
The course is practical and engaging and includes a variety of individual exercises. Delegates will also benefit from revisiting the exercises after the course when they have the time and space to think fully about their life and the issues raised.
If managed well, pressure is extremely positive as it provides the incentive and motivation that enables us to meet our targets and achieve professional satisfaction. However, if managed badly, pressure can become excessive which can lead to a reduction in motivation, poor performance and a threat to our health and work-life balance.
