Stress Management Training for Managers

In-House Training Courses > Stress Management Training for Managers

This course enables delegates to:
identify signs of stress in their team members;
discuss the employee’s stress triggers with them;
and agree individual strategies to be reviewed at a later date.

 

"A more 'human' approach to the subject as opposed to a guidance and risk assessment document as a more 'academic' exercise."
