Managing Your Executive Stress by Robin Jacobs

About the training

#stress management

Businesses increasingly have to adapt themselves to exponential levels of change in the world today. The impact on those responsible for managing today’s businesses – executives - is immense. Increasing levels of data to process, faster decision making, long hours, needing to operate simultaneously at both a strategic and tactical levels, managing an increasingly well educated and demanding workforce and customer base; all combine to ramp up the pressure on executives to perform at levels beyond anything experienced by their predecessors. According to research, part of the reason for continually increasing levels of executive stress is that we mostly try to deal with the symptoms; we don’t address the psychological causes, which of course go much deeper. This course will take a more serious approach to the whole subject by delving into the psychological causes of stress and how to address them. Based on the most up to date research on the subject, it will provide delegates with insight into the likely causes of their own stress as well as suggest practical techniques and tools that they will need to reduce their stress successfully in the long term.
