Understanding and Managing Stress – Social Enterprise

Last year we were asked to develop a training programme for a Social Enterprise.  We were chosen as the provider as the organisation felt our proposal had been the most comprehensive and practical.

The brief was to help people managers across the organisation to identify workplace stress and to be provided with a range of tools and techniques to manage it sensitively and effectively.

We delivered workshops to their managers over a period of 6 months.

The one-day course was divided into 3 sections – Stress Awareness, Proactive Stress Management and Reactive Stress Management.  Each section included practical exercises and valuable discussion time.  All participants came away with a course handbook and were able to download stress management resources from our website which they could use and refer to after the workshop.

The organiser confirmed that, following our training, there was an increased understanding of the issue and managers displayed an enhanced confidence using key tools and techniques.

We were delighted with the feedback received from both the organiser and the delegates.  The training delivery and quality of our trainers both received top scores.  Delegates’ comments included;

  • “Practicing the knowledge/skills will take some time, but these tips and guides have given me a good foundation to implement support when needed.”
  •  “I am now more aware of the impact you have on others around you. Fantastic course, took so much away from it.”
  •  “Scientific explanations were excellent and reaches people in a different way to what can be perceived as ‘fluffy’.”
  •  “Exceeded my expectations. Really useful course and time very well spent.  Many thanks.”
