Course outline

1. There’s more to stress and the workplace

Put yourself in the shoes of your audience.

Ask these questions:

  • What is it like to be them?
  • What do they struggle with?
  • How do they unwind?
  • What causes their stress?

The deeper your understanding of your audience’s experience, the more likely you’ll be able to assist them.

Here’s where it gets interesting:

  • Examine how stress can impact on the workplace (e.g., reduced performance levels). Outline how the impact on employee performance, will affect the success of the company.
  • Examine how to reduce the costs associated with higher employee absenteeism and turnover figures.
  • Explore how lower motivation levels can have a direct effect on satisfaction levels amongst staff.
  • Discuss how stress levels can result in burnout for some staff.

2. Introduce your audience to key factors

Makes sense to keep the needs of your audience in mind throughout this course.

Think about it.

If you know how your audience behaves in stressful situations, and what they want from you, it allows you to make informed decisions when presenting this content.

Over the long run, this will help you connect better with them.

With that in mind, dive deep into best practices:

  • Examine factors that can influence stress levels both at an individual and at a company level.
  • Highlight the impact of working conditions, work overload, and responsibility.
  • Discuss how interpersonal demands, relationships, and profiles can cause obstacles and lead to stress.
  • Explore contributory factors like role ambiguity and role conflict.
  • Discuss the impact of personality type on stress levels.

3. Highlight the General Adaptation Syndrome

Discussing stress can be hard; it’s even harder when your audience doesn’t understand the stages involved.

With that in mind, highlight the General Adaptation Syndrome. And, focus on physical and behavioral symptoms that can exist.

Simply put, this section helps your audience feel more connected to the content. And, they will build more practical skills.

4. Learning how to manage stress

Now that your audience understands more about stress management, let’s talk about how to manage stress.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Share an awareness of where people may be in relation to the different stages of stress.
  • Examine the role of management and the individual in managing stress.
  • Build q picture of what will work well and what doesn’t work for them.

5. Focus on support initiatives

Support initiatives for managing stress can be incredibly effective, and also incredibly easy to introduce.

It’s important to take advantage of some simple steps.

End this course by exploring support initiatives that will help to manage stress levels within organizations.

This section is an opportunity for you to introduce employee counseling, communication forums, and listening skills as sources of support.

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.
