Coping with Stress and Pressure at Work

You’re constantly being asked to do more with less – get more done, achieve improved results, provide greater levels of customer service – all while your time available stays fixed and your resources dwindle. If that isn’t enough to take you over the edge, add in increased responsibilities on the home front – childcare, eldercare, household tasks – and it feels like you’re in a vice that is being tightened from day to day, week to week, month to month. If this sounds even remotely like your life, then you’ll get immense value from this program. In one fast-paced (yet particularly reflective) day, gain a greater understanding of why you respond to stress the way you do. And then, perhaps more importantly, learn specific and practical tools and skills that you can use right away to make you more mentally tough – to help you cope with and rise above the stressors and pressure in your workplace.
