Stress Management Training Course
This workshop sets out to put a positive slant on how to approach worry & stress. Rather than make worry and stress the bogey man of the 21st century professional, AXIO’s Controlling Worry & Stress programme coaches participants to take advantage of stress in order to enhance performance.
Whether from the same organisation and profession or from diverse backgrounds, disciplines and professions we all react to stress in different ways. So be it an in-house run workshop or one that has drawn participants from several organisations the AXIO coaches make a virtue of the diverse personalities present and facilitate a programme that meets individual needs by drawing on the experience of everyone present.
Without dismissing the harmful implications of stress AXIO coaches put a positive emphasis on stress which turns this workshop into a constructive experience. Participants have commented that what they expected to be a “damage-limitation” session – at best giving them coping strategies for the inevitable, unavoidable incidents of stress – actually left them feeling energised, motivated and in control.
This interactive course sets out to ensure participants’ are able to control excessive worry & stress in their own way for their own benefit. This is achieved by following the AXIO tried and tested facilitation process which identifies a participants’ individual circumstances and then through group interaction and feedback integrates these with the whole group so each individual benefits from everyone else’s experience. One person’s stress is another’s excitement. Interacting with others and sharing experiences put worry and stress in perspective causing them to be viewed objectively.
Participants identify their specific worry and stress triggers, determine when they experience a positive reaction and when the stress they experience has a negative impact and see how a stressful situation can be turned to personal / professional advantage.
The objective is for participants to have an understanding of positive & negative stress; be able to differentiate between the two and discover how top performers use stress to their advantage. To turn anxiety into excitement, dread into eager anticipation.
