Who Is It For?
Any staff member within an organisation would benefit from Stress Management Techniques training. As stress is subjective, people need to observe and learn various strategies to enable them to select those that will work best for them.
The course content and capacity can be customised for individuality and to ensure organisations’ specific learning criteria are met. Consultancy to manage stress is also an option either as a standalone service or in conjunction with training.
A testimonial for the Stress Management Techniques Course:
"Syngenta ran the training sessions at various locations around the UK and found it to be valuable and well received by both managers and individuals.
In Equilibrium were able to adapt their style and material to the needs of the local areas without compromising the content.
The content included a good mix of theory and practical discussion and the workbooks and other resources are useful materials."
The course commences with a comprehensive review of stress awareness and how participants can recognise its signs and symptoms in themselves and in their colleagues. The legal responsibilities of employers and employees is reviewed and the course is put into context with the organisation’s existing health and well-being policies and support systems.
The ‘PIC’ formula approach is covered which gives participants a choice of tools and techniques they can use to focus on the things in their lives that can minimise the risk of stress and enhance their feelings of well-being.
