Stress Management - Managing Stress before it Manages You

Many feel the demands of the workplace have become too much to handle. The financial impact of stress on corporate America is staggering.

Coping with change has become a common reality for most people in organizations today. Whether it is a change in your job role, department, or the entire organization, change requires both the resolve and the skill to adapt. Organizations typically put systems in place to manage change. However, there are also steps that individuals need to take, to ensure that they land on both feet. People must learn how to manage the personal side of change, as well as the organizational requirements. Personal change management can help individuals better manage stress, and can make them more productive throughout the transition. Understanding the natural phases of change is fundamental for individuals to recognize their own reactions, and then work to overcome their fears and resistance. As individuals consciously move through the phases of change, they can gain a sense of control and fulfillment from the process. This program is designed to help you develop critical knowledge and skills for responding to change in your job, department, industry, or your personal life. Request Program Proposal.
