Stress comes in many forms, sometimes positive and useful for peak performance and sometimes counterproductive when built up over a period of time.
Stress shows up as higher absenteeism, higher workcover claims, poor performance, bullying behavior, harassment, and a negative toxic culture. Whilst most companies have preventative safety programs, they fail to provide managers with an understanding of what happens to a person when affected by a critical incident or cumulative stress at home or at work and what to do about it.
In this suite we offer three distinctly different, yet complimentary programs.
The Daily Grind – A Manager’s role in reducing stress in the workplace
Understand the different types of stress and the physical, emotional and cognitive effects on a person. Discover what successful (and non successful) coping mechanisms can be applied (for yourself and those you lead) and what to do about reactive and cumulative stress at an individual, team and organisational level so it does not negatively impact the person and therefore organisation.
Outside What’s Normal – Managing extreme stress reactions in the workplace – Managing Critical Incidents
We work with many industries with high risk environments, where fatalities and long term injuries may occur. We know if you dont deal with the physical and emotional issues that result from incidents, your organisation can develop serious systemic cultural issues which impact individuals and the bottom line. In this program discover what individuals, managers and organisations can do after a critical incident in the workplace (or at home). Also called Emotional First Aid, discover what physically occurs in your body after a critical incident and equip managers with the tools and understanding of what to do when a team member is affected.
It is not the role of managers to be counsellors, nor are they trained for this, however managers are required to support their team to perform effectively and guide them appropriately.
