Stress management for business owners, directors & managers

Reduce stress now, manage stress positively going forward & build your resilience to stress over time (at work, in business & in life)

Overview

This course is a practical action oriented course designed to give you the tools to reduce your current stress and to enable you to manage stress positively going forward and to be more resilient to stress over time. 

This course aims to give you an insight into stress, its impact, symptoms and causes, as well as to give you practical steps to follow to reduce your current stress. The course will also give you a wealth of stress management tips and strategies to help you to tackle the root causes of your stress and to help you to manage stress more effectively going forward. As you go through the course you will be able to apply the learning and develop your own personalised stress plan. 

The course is designed to be practical and relevant to real life. It includes a straightforward process that you can follow to reduce your current stress and lots of ideas, tips and strategies as to how to reduce and manage stress. The course takes a holistic view of stress management with stress management strategies for all areas of your life. It is not a theoretical or academic course on stress.

Who is this course designed for?

This course is designed for you if you are a business owner, director or manager:

* Who is currently finding it difficult to cope with high levels of stress at work or in your business. Whether you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, you are going through a very stressful and challenging period or your stress has been building up over time, this course is for you.

* Wanting to learn more about stress management, how to manage stress positively at work and in your business and wanting to learn practical stress management tips and strategies. 

Please note if you are not a business owner, director or manager but are looking for a general stress management course then I would recommend that you take my other course ‘Stress management for life: how to reduce & manage stress’ rather than this one as it will be more relevant to you. There is an overlap of content between the two courses so please choose one or the other, not both.

What are the course aims?

The course aims to:

* Give you an insight into stress, its impact, symptoms and causes.

* Show you a process that you can follow to reduce your current stress.

* Provide you with practical stress management tips and strategies to help you to tackle the root cause of your stress and to help you to manage stress positively going forward and to build your resilience to stress over time.

* Enable you to develop your own personalised stress plan during the course. 

What is included in the course?

The course has the following sections: 

* Introduction, including an introduction to the course and the tutor

* Stress, including what is stress and can stress be good for you?

* Reduce stress now, including a stress management process to reduce stress, the symptoms of stress, the causes of stress and taking action to reduce your stress

* Practical stress management tips and strategies, including a whole range of tips and strategies to help you tackle the root cause of your stress, to manage stress positively going forward and to build your resilience to stress over time.

* Your stress plan, including your own symptoms, causes, actions and strategies.

We have also included introductions and summaries throughout the course to help with learning.

The course is in short bite sized lectures and you can see the detailed course content in the course curriculum.

Developing your own personalised stress plan

There are also worksheets to complete as you go through the course to develop your own personalised stress plan. These include identifying the symptoms and the causes of your stress, as well as actions to take to reduce your current stress and strategies to follow to manage stress positively going forward and to build your resilience to stress over time. You will need to allow additional time in addition to the duration of the videos to complete the worksheets.

What will you cover on the course and what will you learn?

As you go through the course you will be looking at your own stress, how it is manifesting, the impact on you, your work and your business, the causes of your stress, how to manage stress and stress management tips and strategies.

By the end of the course you will have a better understanding of stress, understand the root causes of your stress, have an action plan for reducing your stress levels and have stress management strategies in place to support you to manage stress positively going forward and to build your resilience to stress over time.

Even if you are not stressed at the moment you will have the opportunity to review you, your work and your business and to decide on actions to take to support you in managing stress positively going forward and building your resilience to stress over time.

Important notes & more about the course

If you are already very knowledgeable about stress and stress management, this course may not be for you. It includes an insight into stress (including what is stress and whether stress can be good for you), its impact, symptoms and causes, a stress management process to reduce stress, practical stress management tips and strategies and an opportunity to develop your own stress plan, some or all of which you may already know a lot about.  

You can choose to complete the whole course or just watch the lectures that are most relevant to you, whichever you prefer. You can watch each lecture in full or just the elements you want to watch and you can stop a lecture at any point if you want to study the content in more detail.

Good luck

Good luck with the course and I hope you find it invaluable.
