Resilience to Stress.jpg



Which of the following statements about stress do you believe?

  1. Stress is harmful to my health and well-being

  2. Stress is helpful to my health and well-being


If you agree with statement No. 1, you’re like most people. Stress is something we’ve come to see as a negative influence. Reporting on a study by Harvard and Stanford researchers, the Washington Post ran the headline, “Your Job Is Literally ‘Killing’ You.” Researchers found that 10 different workplace stressors–including low “job control,” high “job demand,” unemployment, and lack of high-quality work relationships–contribute to more than 120,000 deaths each year and $190 billion in health care costs.


While that news may make you want to stay home in your pajamas all day or escape to a beach in Hawaii and never return, the truth is that these studies, while useful, don’t tell the whole story about work-related stress. In fact, with a little effort, you can use the experience of stress, which many of us have in ample supply, in order to build up your resilience to it and even grow in other ways.

Growing Your Resilience to Stress is a 1-day interactive resilience training workshop that brings participants in closer recognition of their many stressors. Work stress is often cumulative and team members grow used to the level of stress in their work environment. However, constant tolerance of pressure and tension degrades morale, lowers productivity, and reduces profitability and sustainability. This dynamic resilience training workshop creates greater awareness of the draining factors and offers skills and insights for building mental, emotional, physical, social, and energetic areas of life.
