Stress Management Course ProgrammeThe course content may include many of the exercises listed below, and any additional material that the trainers feel is relevant to the delegates on the day.
The morning sessions are designed to give you an opportunity to identify where pressure begins to tip into stress, what physically happens and your default positions and patterns of coping with stress. It will also give you a chance to see where you already handle pressure and stress well.
Exploring Stress and PressureYour individual workload
This exercise looks at your own on-going workload when you're handling things. It then begins to explore the things that cause increasing pressure to tip over into stress. There is then discussion about how this is individual for each person.
Stress Its effect on usAn opportunity to look at the last time that pressure tipped over into stress. What happens to you and we glimpse some of our physical reactions.
Personal Pressure AwarenessIn this part of the day you will construct a personal pressure scale a snapshot of where you are now. As the pressure increases what do you see in yourselves and others. We move into the realms of patterns of behaviour that can emerge under pressure. What do you display on the outside versus what's going on in the inside.
Handling Stress Tool BoxThe afternoon sessions will consist of a variety of tools and techniques to help you deal more effectively with your pressure and that of others. We have brought together a wide selection of easy, quick tools that equip you for those times when the demands are high.
Reducing Stress by Saying 'No'Doing less or being less accommodating
In addition we have taken one of the key areas from our assertiveness course to manage saying no (or just being less accommodating) in a way that suits you our art of saying 'no' programme.
Pre-Empting PressureThis is an exercise that allows you to preview a project and pre-empt and prepare for possible outcomes. Our view is the best surprise is no surprise!
Handling Other Peoples StressThroughout the day you will be given opportunities to take a personal view of stress management and also to unpack, discuss and finally equip yourself to deal with colleagues stress.
This part of the day deals with managing other people's stress and stress in the work place. You will look at productive ways to engage with stressed colleagues, working to create empathy and understanding - and hopefully make the working environment better as a result.
