Our Managing Personal Stress Challenge course covers the following topics.

Stress and It's Causes
Stress and It's Causes
What is stress? Every job brings its pressures and demands but when we are pushed beyond our ability to cope, stress can be the result. By studying the scenarios of various fictional employees, the course shows how stress can affect anyone in any workplace, and how important it is to recognise what is triggering it.
Signs and Symptoms
Signs and Symptoms
Everyone has a different experience of stress but the most common signs fall into four categories. This course covers these signs and symptoms of stress and how they might affect people in different jobs and circumstances. Learners are encouraged to watch out for these signs in themselves.
What Can You Do?

The Importance of Stress Management Training

Millions of working days are lost to work-related stress and its associated health problems every year. When our stress is allowed to continue unchecked, it can lead to depression and anxiety, which can have devastating effects.

Controlling work-related stress is a shared responsibility between employers and employees themselves. It can help workers cope if they know how to recognise the signs of stress in themselves and the steps they can take to control it.

How do you manage stress at work?
There are many techniques for managing stress at work. Ideally, you should discuss the situation with your line manager and see if there is anything that can be done to lessen the stress burden on your role. Personally, you can take positive steps too, such enjoying hobbies and family time to wind down after work.
Is stress a reason to be off work?
Stress-related mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression are among the leading causes of sick time away from work. However, if stress is tackled proactively by the employer and the employee is given the support they need, their symptoms may be less severe and their recovery faster.
How does workplace stress affect health?
Workplace stress can have an effect on both mental and physical health. When it is prolonged or particularly strong, it can lead to conditions such as hypertension (raised blood pressure) and heart problems. Both the mental and physical effects of workplace stress need to be treated very seriously.
