About This Class

If we don't understand stress, we may become a slave to it.

Stress in the workplace is rampant.  How we manage stress for our own well being but also to more effectively address our objectives in business is key to being a valuable employee, an effective manager and a strong leader.   Too often, we ignore the impact that unmanaged stress can have on the bottom line. This is because we may have a common tendency to overvalue results at the expense of relationship----with ourselves and with others..  Managing stress involves addressing the relationship with ourselves while we work as well as addressing how we are relating to others--down, up, or across the corporate hierarchy.  


In this class, you will learn the following:


  • A cursory understanding of stress and the nervous system.
  • How to identify signs and symptoms of stress in yourself.
  • How to identify triggers and scenarios in the workplace that lead to unmanaged stress.
  • Introduction to the first tangible point in the effective management of stress.
  • Learn one evidence based method to manage stress in the body.
  • Start an action plan to manage stress more effectively at work.
