Insight-driven training to move your company beyond stress
Is stress a significant challenge within your business and sector? Do your employees cite this as a key concern in your Pulse surveys, and do you lose valued employees to stress-related leave each year? On the flip-side, do you need to balance this challenge with the pressure to maintain competitive advantage, and to do more with less?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you're not alone. Stress is one of the biggest challenges faced by businesses today. The key question that remains is are you ready to help your employees understand why stress plays out so they can move beyond it?
If so, please read on to discover how you can help your employees thrive under pressure, and get in touch if you would like to find out more.
According to the Mental Health Foundation, 17 million working days are lost each year to poor mental health at a cost of £2.4 billion to the UK economy. In 2017 Mind found 40% of employees took time off for their well-being, with 48% saying they have felt anxious at work on several occasions over the last month. In addition, stress inhibits productivity, creativity and decision making, meaning the impact of a high-stress culture on your business performance and bottom line can be profound.
We live in a fast-paced, uncertain and complex world, and haven't yet up-skilled our teams to be able to handle the pace of change. Managing stress is no longer the answer. We have to help employees understand why it plays out, so they can move beyond it and thrive in the new environment.
Each company is unique, and the culture, challenges and opportunities distinct. I therefore tailor my training to your business and a detailed consultation at the outset ensures we establish and meet your objectives.
Drawing upon my expertise in Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence, this cutting-edge training will share the principles and thought patterns that underpin stress. Real-life workplace scenarios will then be used demonstrate how employees can move from a typical stress reaction to a proactive response in even the most high-pressure environments. The insights, principles, and tools shared will deliver behaviour change far beyond what's possible through standard stress-management programmes.
