Description: Do you often feel stressed? Is it affecting your work, relationships or health? It doesn’t have to be that way. You can "Get Better at Stress". The latest science shows that stress doesn’t have to be harmful. When we understand stress we can change the way we think about it and this means that we can turn stress into our friend, not our enemy. Together with better self-awareness and self-management you can, not only change the way you handle stress, but learn skills that will benefit all areas of your working and personal life.
During the workshop delegates will:
- Learn how to recognise stress and your unique response and how to identify stress in others.
- The new science – how changing your thinking actually reduces your body’s harmful response to stress.
- How to stop the 'amygdala hijack' (flying off the handle) and keep your power, no matter how provoked or stressed you are.
- How developing the skills of Emotional Intelligence enable changes in unhelpful habits and behaviours.
- Discover the value of mindfulness in the recognition and change of obstructive thought patterns.
- In fact, all the skills you need to change your thinking, shift your perspective and take control of stress.
By the end of the workshop delegates will:
- Experience a shift in their thinking about and attitude to stress
- Be able to recognise their stress response and intervene early to positively influence their reaction.
- Understand how the skills of self-awareness and self-management enhance their day to day stress management
- Have a basic understanding of the importance of Emotional Intelligence
- Be equipped with a range of practical exercises and tools to increase Emotional Intelligence and begin to practice basic mindfulness techniques.
