Stress is both a mental and physical reaction to our surroundings. It is a highly useful evolutionary trait that helps us prepare to fight or flee when danger arises. In the work environment, we need just a little bit of stress to keep boredom at bay and to help us keep performing at a high level.
However, the problem is that in our modern age, stressful situations may continue for days, weeks and months rather than a few hours. We may find ourselves stuck in a response pattern that is inappropriate, damages our work performance and causes problems for our health.
All Midas stress management workshops are highly practical. Our materials have been designed by trainers with backgrounds in psychology and business. All our trainers maintain an understanding of current thinking on this topical issue. Our workshops have been highly successful in helping teams that work in a wide variety of high-pressure environments to cope with stress effectively, before it becomes a problem.
Because there is such a wealth of information on this topic, we can offer you several different approaches and options for a training course. We will normally suggest that you include some elements from our Time Management workshops in your agenda for the training day, since this is a core technique in managing stress levels. There are also a number of other add-ons we can talk you through that are appropriate for teams and individuals in different situations and with different experiences of stress. Get in touch with us today and we can discuss which option may be best for your team members.
