About the Course

Some stress is good for you, because stress stimulates an adaptive response and therefore can lead to progress.

But too much stress is bad for you, because too much stress can lead to feelings of anxiousness, worry and even burn-out and meltdown.

So this course is about learning how to harness the positive power of stress, whilst simultaneously avoiding the negative potential of stress.

The course content was very relevant for my work and applicable to my job. Lots of tools to use in my role, especially since a promotion from an operational to more strategic post. Trainer's presentation was very vibrant and interactive. Could have possibly left more time for discussion, however I understand why we needed to push on. Gez kept very well to time as a result.

Course Overview

There are two forms of stressors:

  1. Objective stressors
  2. Subjective stressors

Objective stressors; are the facts the environment: they are tangible: They include such things as temperature; heat, cold; any noise; problems with work; problem with customers; suppliers, colleagues, bosses and maybe even family.

Subjective stressors; are your emotional reactions to the environment; they are intangible. On the one hand, they could be emotions of worry, fear, anxiousness, concern, dread, anger, bitterness and resentment. On the other hand, it could be emotions such as excitement, energy, optimism, courage and motivation.

The total load of stressors on you are the sum of all your objective tangible stressors and your intangible emotional stressors.

Course content was good and varied, covered a lot of ground in a short space of time. Useful techniques to apply to real life situations. The trainer's presentation was enthusiastic, fun, relevant, and inspiring. Felt like he was being honest.

Stress Management - AM

Learn about the 'General Adaption Syndrome'

"The General Adaptation Syndrome” is the theory that underpins the whole science of stress management.

The general adaptation syndrome is a three-part model that explains the body’s reaction to a stressor.

  1. Alarm reaction
  2. Adaptation response
  3. Exhaustion

Learn about the "The total load" principle

Total load is the measure of all the stressors, from all realms of your life, which are acting on you at any given moment.

Examples

  • Work stress
  • Home life stress
  • Health
  • Relationships etc

You need to take account of the fact that you are an integrated being: you are not able to totally separate your life’s compartments. I.e. work stress is likely to affect home life, and vice versa.

Learn about the 'Optimum Zone' principle

The optimum zone is the target zone.

The optimum zone is the level of stress that allows you to work at your greatest efficiency, because you are balancing the:

  1. Intensity of the stress
  2. Duration of the stress
  3. Frequency of the stress

Understand the 'optimum zone' and you will have one of the solutions to the stress management problem.

Training course content: was very informative, useful skills for day to day management. Very useful conflict management and emotional management. Trainer's presentation: Good overall presentation, good communication.

  2. Your physiology
  3. Your environment

Learn about additional solutions to stress management.

More on the solution: “Recovery ability”

What is “Recovery Ability”?
Recovery ability is a measure of the team’s capacity to absorb, “metabolise” and bounce back from any intense, prolonged or frequent stressor.
Recovery ability is a conscious development, an important part of your management philosophy.

Recovery ability is composed of six elements:

  1. Organisational
  2. Social
  3. Intellectual
  4. Emotional
  5. Physiological
  6. Nutritional

They combine to produce a system of strength.

Physiology First

It is a fact that your performance under stress has a strong physiological element.
You are as strong as your physiology.

When there is change in the air, or there is a situation that requires you raise your game, solidify your physiology so as to give your performance a rigid base.
Those people who neglect their physiology, or who allow their powers to dwindle, pay a heavy price.
When the environment is piling on the pressure, get stronger by feeding your physiology everything it needs to compensate for the added intensity.

Specifically, your physiology needs:

  1. Oxygen
  2. Water
  3. Nutrition
  4. Rest and sleep
  5. Movement

When you need to reclaim your emotional state, remember, PHYSIOLGY FIRST.

Emotional Management

The definition of emotional management is: the art of controlling:

  • The focus of your mind
  • The physical state of your body,

so as to create the optimum emotional responses that are appropriate to the circumstances that face you.

Your body responds automatically, instantly and unerringly to the thoughts that occupy your mind.

  1. If you have bad thoughts you feel bad.
  2. If you have good thoughts you feel good.
  3. If you have mixed thoughts you will have mixed feelings.

A positive mental attitude relies on your ability to control and direct your thoughts:

  1. Consistently.
  2. For extended periods.
  3. Irrespective of what others are doing.
  4. Irrespective of what others are saying to you.

Consider this suggestion and ponder the implications.

“You are what you are, you do what you do, and you feel the way you feel, primarily because of the habitual thoughts that you allow to dominate your mind.”

  1. How to handle the stressor's that form a part of your environment.
  2. How to handle your physical response during stressful times.
  3. How to handle your emotional response during stressful times.
  4. How can you manage things so that stress works for the team as a stimulant to greater productivity?

Summary and personal action plan

The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
  6. (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

Course content: I found the content thought-provoking and helped breakdown what was probably already known into bitesize chunks that followed a logical path. Trainer's presentation: Confident and capable.
