Coping With Stress

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. It shows how coping resources in one area can be used to decrease stress in another, and how stress, coping resources, and overall satisfaction are closely related.
