Getting Equipped to Work Under Pressure

A Short Seminar to Help You Understand Stress and Get Tooled-Up Appropriately

Intended for anyone working in a complex and demanding environment, this short interactive session is an opportunity to tame pressure at work:
• Understand the pressure-stress-needs relationship
• Know how to optimize one’s relationship with pressure and stay Ok
• Get ideas for developing your toolbox, to capture and increase your skills.

We discuss the mechanisms of stress, crystalising the discussion with an exercise to help you clarify your “preferred” sources of stress.

We show how individual needs profiles quickly lead us to understand reactions under light stress, what happens if things get worse and how to respond.

We introduce the metaphor of the personal toolbox and show how it can be used to boost professional development.

(duration of the session: approximately one hour)

We believe that the seminar will be of interest and value to:


Business Experts – both with internal roles and in customer contact situations
