Yesterday I ran my third free workshop introducing the competencies managers should have to enable them to effectively identify stress at work and to take action to prevent and reduce stress in the workplace.
I love running these workshops, delegates are generally all new to me, although I did have one face I knew which is always lovely. Every workshop is slightly different as I update the content in line with new thinking and the delegates will always bring something they can share with others.
The workshops always start with defining the employer’s responsibility to address issues of stress at work, and a definition of what stress is and why we become unable to cope in situations that we may previously have been OK in. We then talk about the competencies required to effectively prevent and reduce stress before moving on to some skills training, and this is when the room gets rowdy with talk and laughter.
My main aim is to educate and have fun, reading through the feedback forms I can see that everybody has taken something from the morning, everyone noted strategies they will use at work to help themselves and their managers, some made notes of follow up action points (e.g. must review Stress statement in the H&S policy) and everyone seemed to have a good time.
My favourite comment on the feedback forms:
“Great course, nothing could have been improved. I have attended 2 other stress courses, this was by far the best.”
