Course Description

Managing Your Well-being at Work 0.5 day course Overview Pressures at work effect people in different ways. Some people are able to identify and report problems in their job whereas others tend to internalise the problems, which can result in changes in behaviour and physical and psychological symptoms. Individuals need to understand how to identify potential stressors within their work. Once the stressors have been identified, individuals need to evaluate the effectiveness of their coping mechanisms and to establish strategy for improvement. Simply asking people to stop, consider the subject and examine the factors is often a great step towards improvement.
