Managers play a critical role in recognising and addressing workplace stress. Understanding the issues, the benefit of overcoming them and the legal requirements for doing so is essential for today's leaders.
This includes (but isn't limited to) H.R. personnel, health and safety representatives, line– and middle managers, team leaders and trade union representatives. In fact, this course would benefit anyone with managerial/supervisory responsibilities.
The schedule takes shape in 1–, 2– or 3–part workshops. Part 1, Understanding Stress, is compulsory. You can choose to do either or both of the other components, each 1½ hours long. Together, the course delivers the essential skills you need for building a healthy, productive workplace:
Part 1 of the course is compulsory. Understanding stress in the first instance is the springboard to the other two (optional) components of this training.
It uses simple tools that are designed to address, educate and reassure managers. The tools' aim is to teach delegates how to deal with stress in various ways, including action plans, basic coaching skills and examining the processes that facilitate higher standards in management.
In this first three-hour session, you will learn:
From those core lessons, you will take away new or honed management skills, including:

One of the most frequent statements of colleagues and peers after someone they worked with commits suicide has got to be:
“I'd never have guessed…”
This optional 1½ hour afternoon module is designed to prevent just that scenario. It's about managers spotting the signs, knowing what to do and how to approach an employee they think is drowning under the weight of psychological pressure.
Awareness of suicidality (suicidal intentions) teaches managers and supervisors how to:
It's one of those management skills you learn and hope you never have to use. But if you use it only once and it saves someone from serious harm or worse, you'll think it's the best hour-and-a-half you've ever spent.
Please don't forget, you must complete "Understanding Stress and Other Common Mental Health Problems" before this module.
The culture of discipline this third module talks about isn't a step back to Victorian workhouse discipline. Today, we need to learn when to step back from work as well as step up. We need to know that boundaries outside of work aren't necessarily the same as in the office or on the shopfloor.
This optional afternoon module is, like Part 2, 1½ hours long. Using genuine evidence as a base, our trainer leverages the best of modern psychology to help us examine changes we can make that naturally lead to cultures of discipline:
Please don't forget, you must complete "Understanding Stress and Other Common Mental Health Problems" before this module (but not necessarily Part 2!).
You can't take either Part 2 or Part 3 (or both) without first completing Part 1.
You can take either Part 2 or Part 3 after Part 1. Or you can take both Parts 2 and 3. Or neither. But whatever optional courses you choose, you must take them on the same day that you complete Part 1 of this course.
Each additional module you take costs £260 + VAT (for up to 20 people). Here are a couple of costing examples for you:
Part 1, compulsory, is £525. One optional course is £260.
So, if you took Part 1 + Part 2 or Part 3, the total cost of the training would cost you:
£525 + £260 = £785 + VAT
Duration for Part 1 + 1 optional module: 3 hours + 1½ hours = 4½ hours (plus breaks)
If you took Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3, the total cost of the training would cost you:
£525 + £260 + £260 = £1,045 + VAT
Duration for all three modules: 3 hours + 1½ hours + 1½ hours = 6 hours (plus breaks)
