What is this course about?
The aim of the course is to give individuals the opportunity to examine the pressures they face at work. They will identify their reactions to a range of situations and people; develop awareness and establish personal strategies to maximise their personal performance. This is necessary for their own benefit and that of the organisation in which they work. It is also relevant for those who manage others and have a ‘duty of care’ towards them.

Key topics covered

  1. Pressure and stressful situations
  2. Measuring the result of excess pressure
  3.  Planning and strategy
  4.  Behavioural patterns
