Course Description

Concerns about stress and the adverse impact of immense work pressures are not new, but, for various reasons, work pressures seem to be growing in many areas. Supporting people who are under such immense pressure is a huge leadership challenge. This course has been developed to help leaders to rise to that challenge as effectively as possible.

It is based on ten principles, each of which has the potential to ease the burden and contribute to a healthier and happier workplace where staff feel empowered to tackle the pressures they face.

1. Pull the team together

2. Boost morale

3. Don't overload

4. Address team culture

5. Direct pressures appropriately

6. Encourage reflection, creativity and learning.

7. Encourage confidence and assertiveness.

8. Encourage self-care
