The workplace is becoming ever more demanding and hectic, resulting in increasing time pressures and levels of stress - and the negative effects of stress in the workplace are well known: increased sickness and absenteeism, decreased productivity and avoidable, costly mistakes. Developing skills in time and stress management can have a real impact on productivity, and can help to ensure that individuals and teams remain healthy and motivated.
This course provides delegates with the practical support to maximise efficiency and productivity.
