Sylva K. Leduc, MPEC Master Personal & Executive Coach SAGE Leaders

As someone who’s been involved in training for more than twenty years, I’ve never known a resource that’s as consistently valuable as Oak. I’m always amazed at their willingness to provide purchasers of their complete range of presentations regular updates and new training packages at no additional cost. That makes my purchase become more valuable all the time. And their speed in responding to questions is phenomenal. One of the sessions I often provide is a Training the Trainers workshop. In it, the very first resource I encourage people to purchase is the library of resources from Oak. These packages have made my job infinitely easier, and I recommend them to anyone who’s looking for the highest quality in training materials.

Course outline

We’ve been looking at ways we can do more when it comes to sharing our training content and ideas on how you can deliver this training course. This something people have been asking us to do for a long time.

Now, let’s dive into the content.

Stress and the workplace – For best results, use the content to examine how stress can impact on the workplace (e.g., reduced performance levels). We believe that all companies need to really think about the impact on their performance, the impact on staff, and how this will all impact the success of the company.

Our position is that these course materials are all about discovering how to reduce the costs associated with higher employee absenteeism and turnover figures. If you haven’t recognized it already, this course will also help to explore how lower motivation levels can have a direct effect on satisfaction levels amongst staff. And, how stress levels can result in burnout for some staff.

Factors – In this section, dive into best practices and opportunities to use the content to examine what factors can influence stress levels both at an individual and at a company level. For increased audience awareness, we suggest that you can highlight the impact of working conditions, work overload, and responsibility. When you’re delivering this part of the course to a group, somebody might ask you a question that leads to a discussion of other factors not listed in the course material. This is an excellent moment that should be encouraged as that can lead to new directions and discussions with the course material.

Get specific! When you make the content relevant, it makes it easier to discuss how interpersonal demands, relationships, and profiles can cause obstacles and lead to stress. Finally, use the content to highlight vital contributory factors like role ambiguity and role conflict. Once everyone in your audience reaches this point, you can use the content to discuss the impact of personality type on stress levels.

The General Adaptation Syndrome – Let’s explore couple of thoughts. So, what’s the easiest way to discuss the impact of stress on an individual? Well, there have been numerous approaches, but we believe that the General Adaptation Syndrome is by far the easiest to convey.

This section is for those of you that want to use the content to explore this theory and provide a particular focus on physical and behavioral symptoms that can exist. It’s less about “one-and-only steps” and your audience should be encouraged to see stress as a process that can be managed – it’s just about being really focused and clear about the impact of stress on the individual and organization.

Managing stress – We really believe companies have to take a hard look at the impact of stress. And, let’s face it most members of your audience will be interested in how they can handle stress. These are people who really should be capturing your attention – either because of their desire to learn, their awareness, presenting need, or all of the above.

We believe that your audience will need to gain an awareness of where they may be in relation to the different stages of stress. This section examines the role of management and the individual in managing stress. That way, your audience will start to build a better picture of what will work well and what doesn’t work for them.

Support programs – Whether it’s getting support from friends and family, company initiatives, or external support structures, people for as long as we’ve known have sought out ways to cope with stress.

But you might be surprised to learn that few companies are investing enough time and dedicated resources into support programs. We end this course by exploring support programs that will help to manage stress levels with organizations. We’ve learned that once your audience reaches the point where they know that they can improve their situation then they will appreciate what types of solutions exist to suit them.

Remember, this course is about offering content that improves the skills of your audience. Spend some time reading the content provided and remember that you don’t need to have every solution at your fingertips or endless resources to start helping people to better manage stressful situations. In fact, this section is an opportunity for you to introduce employee counseling, communication forums, and listening skills as sources of support. Another insight is to use the content to discuss the role of management, stress reduction teams, and company event planning. Next, we would use the content to explore personal coping strategies, anxiety management, and cognitive restructuring.

One of the things we’re most excited to share is that you can use the content to discuss the use of performance appraisals as one of the best ways to reduce the costs of stress and problem/emotion-focused coping strategies. People always ask us whether appraisals are a source of stress for some people. Of course, they can be, but if they are introduced correctly they can be easily converted as vehicles to reduce stress and create greater clarity across a whole organization.
