Coping With Stress - Live Instructor-led Virtual Course

To avoid the peaks and valleys of productivity created by high stress levels, employees need to know how to respond to increasing demands in the workplace. Research shows that people who develop and use relationship coping resources manage their stress far more effectively than people who rely only on personal coping resources like diet and exercise. This program focuses on Problem Solving, Communication, Connection and Flexibility to manage stress effectively.

Our online instructor-led Coping with Stress program requires minimum time away from one’s office duties. The individualized Coping & Stress Profile® helps each participant create an Action Plan for improvement and the reinforcement module enhances ongoing behavior change.
