Positive Under Pressure Course


If you are feeling the stress of more work and less time to do it, you are not alone. Research indicates that people are working longer and longer hours. In fact, nearly 40% of Americans work 50-plus hours per week, and estimates project that the number will increase to 60 hours by 2010¹. Furthermore, the workplace has become more challenging due to the current economic climate. The result is record levels of burnout, stress and depression. With laptops and cell phones, the 24/7 workplace takes over your life (your home, your weekends and even your vacations). Without even realising it, we end up in a state of continuous ‘partial attention’ in which our quality of life suffers as we constantly fight distractions. As the working culture becomes more high-speed, we find ourselves overwhelmed as we attempt to manage it all.

This new course examines how you can harness pressure and make it work for you, even in these difficult times. Through interactive exercises, discussions and observations, you will learn specific techniques to help you stay resilient and focused under pressure. You will also leave the seminar with specific tools to re-motivate yourself and succeed in today’s digital world of distractions. Finally, you will identify how to re-engineer your attitudes and work style to get you on the path from burnout to balance.
