Reducing Overload Stress Workshop

When: May 6, 2011 (8:30am-5:30pm)
Where: Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Makati

Available Seats: 9

Workshop Overview

In today's complex and fast-paced work environment, Supervisors are exposed to a constant barrage of pressure from top management, fellow Supervisors, Subordinates, customers, and suppliers. Indeed, medical research studies have shown that corporate executives including Supervisors are severely vulnerable to the damaging effects of unregulated and uncontrolled overload stress. Hence, Supervisors must have the skills set and the right attitude to achieve and maintain an optimal level of stress.

This workshop will develop a cohesive set of mental, behavioral, and psychomotor skills for the participants to reduce their work-related overload stress. Specifically, the participants will gain skills in detecting of the early warning symptoms of stress overload, classifying stress, defining the basic components of stress, isolating sources of the stressor, planning specific interventions to control stress, and monitoring the effectiveness of these interventions.
