Who Is It For?

Any staff member within an organisation would benefit from Stress Management Techniques. As stress is subjective, people need to observe and learn a variety of strategies to enable them to select those that will work best for them.

This course has been developed around the ‘PIC’ formula approach 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 wellbeing.

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."
