Going From Stress to Strength‘Building Resilience in Times of Change’
Most psychologists agree on one fact: that prolonged periods of stress or continued change in the workplace, will result in burnout, fatigue, job dissatisfaction, depression and ultimately create retention risk to employers. Pressure is a normal, and in fact can be a motivating part of a working life when managed correctly. If this pressure passes a certain threshold there is a real risk of experiencing some of the above conditions. The good news is, it is preventable and when you discover the key strategies to managing your resilience levels you can reduce your work stress dramatically.
The ‘Going From Stress to Strength’ course is designed to help you discover the key strategies to manage stress in work and in life.
