Stress Management in the Workplace

Course Overview:

Not All Stress is Harmful - Stress affects people differently.  Some people seem to thrive on extremely stressful lifestyles, while others struggle to cope with everyday life.

Everyone has an optimum level of stress.  Too little excitement and too few challenges may lead to an extremely dull life, yet too much stress can lead to health problems.  Nevertheless, a certain amount of stress can actually prove to be good for individuals. 

However due to an ever increasing pace of life for all it becomes even more essential to remove negative stresses and operate with heightened sensory acuity.

Synergy’s Stress Management in the Workplace course is the fastest and most efficient means for you to do this. Delegates will be taught the latest psychological techniques to manage stress.
