From Chaos to Control: How to Be Resilient to Workplace Stress

Price: $149


It’s not the actual work you do for your job that is stressful.

What is usually most stressful is the bombardment of pressures that are unavoidable and beyond your control, such as excessive workload, a difficult boss or colleague, repeated adaptation to restructuring, budget cuts, and so forth.

Some people are finding it harder than ever to deal with the challenges at work, while others are sailing through with ease. The #1 factor that determines how well you perform under stress is your ability to cope with the stress—not specific job conditions or the amount of pressure you face.

You experience stress to the degree that the challenges you face seem out of your control.

Resilience refers to your ability to handle and rise above the multiple stresses in the workplace, by controlling what you CAN control. With the right toolkit, you can develop resilience quickly.

How can you manage yourself so you can stay focused, confident, and calm despite these everyday stresses? How can you manage yourself to affect positively those around you and protect yourself from the negative impact of others' stress? How can you take control of politics or workload issues to lessen the friction and overwhelming pressure?

Attend this webinar to discover tools to combat the pressure cooker!
