“Meet others, share your stories and learn how to attend to stress differently.”
Workplace change and demands, problems with colleagues and difficult life circumstances can be stressful. It can make us wish there was a magic wand to take it all away. The truth is managing stress when we are in situations we have little control over is complex. It requires a tool box.
There are an abundance of quality resources available in the world to help people manage their stress and yet the support to explain why, what, when and how to use them is not integrated.
This one day workshop will help you to:
- Understand stress
- Gain greater awareness of the impact stress is having on you
- Change your perception of current circumstances
- Identify new ways to calm yourself down.
- Find resources that support you
Workshop Cost: $395 per employee (food and refreshments provided)
In Australia mental health has overtaken physical injury as the cause of the largest absences from work (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2014).
Work related stress affects the wellbeing and health of employees. When people are unable to calm their stress, physical, mental and emotional difficulties arise. The workplace signs and symptoms of unmanaged stress include:
- Decreased job satisfaction
- Increased absenteeism & staff turnover
- Increased employee conflict (counter claims of bullying and harassment)
- Decreased client satisfaction
- Workers compensation claims related to mental illness
