In companies, non-governmental organizations and government agencies I work with, there are two types of people – those who acknowledge stress in their lives and those who are denied. Both may suffer, while the latter can not discuss what is important workplace issues (in the UK, the health and safety manager has made it a legal condition for employers to deal with what is considered so important regardless of). Congratulations on mechanical attitudes are dying out when people realize the effects of stress can affect health (most Western murderers are stressful), efficiency / productivity (research shows that stressed people do not work well) and relationships at workplace and at home.
Stress training is recognized by companies as valuable and if it is successful, it is the turnover of staff turnover (increase in volume), increases efficiency and reduces inability. In addition to being a moral position, agencies save money to provide stress management. What are some obstacles related to stress training? Regardless of prejudiced beliefs that stress can make one weak, it's also a misconception that people work well stressed. Some positive stimulation or eustress can of course be beneficial – but most of the modern organizations I see are well above this daily and work on adrenaline and move towards breastfeeding. The term "sustainable work" is often useful for managing stress, as is a distinction between "living relaxation" (like athlete) and "dead relaxation" (as unconsciously drunk).
Other obstacles to stress management include time and cost. Short-term courses funded by government grants can help both of these.
What makes stress training effective?
Some stress training is effective, some are not (as recommended by participants in comments or "hard actions" such as employee illness). Here are some of the things that make workshops effective if included:
Select an Experts
Do you want to do dentistry at home or ask a mechanic for it? Of course, it does not pay for a specialist to deal with stress at work and the same goes for investing in experienced and specialized stress training practitioners. Of course I'm biased but the real test is to pay a customer agreement.
Comprehensive assessment completed
Stress training will only work if it is considered by the institutions. General stress tests are possible but if a coach is talking directly to the concerns of a representative after doing thorough research, this is great. Questionnaire for management stress would be a minimum measure.
Stress Factor Has A Comprehensive And Overall Pattern
Talking about theories of stress is not enough because stress is an exemplary phenomenon and this will be discussed a lot. Equally, looking at some angle of stress is insufficient because psychological, biological, social, cultural, environmental and organizational factors all need to be considered as these factors are all involved. Ken Wilber's coherent model is the most complete theoretical overview I know.
Stress training is interactive and fun!
Interactive and experience training will ease the problem of tired and bored delegates who do not take anything and get critical shopping.
Stress Management Training Expects Real World Transfer
Training often has a bad reputation, and in many organizations people will attend a course and immediately forget about everything they have learned. It is important that stress training involves learning in real-world home programs. Follow-up of email and revision times are also effective.
This article is, of course, just a brief introduction to stress training and what makes stress manager successful, but I hope it was a good help. There are several government sponsors for stress training that are available in the UK so please get in touch to benefit from productivity, health and relationships.
