Stress Management Workshops

Working Mind has been delivering skills-based stress management workshops to workplaces around Australia since 2006. Participants learn through a combination of face-to-face training and ongoing support via the Working Mind app.

Why support your staff to reduce stress?

Stress is a normal, expected and necessary part of everyday life. In fact, we can’t achieve anything in life without experiencing a certain amount of stress arousal. The stress response is our in-built performance mechanism and it allows us to get things done. Stress is only ever an issue for us when it’s prolonged or excessive.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that 1 in 3 adults suffer from moderate to extreme levels of stress, and workplace stress is now costing Australian employers more than $10 billion per year*. (*The Cost of Workplace Stress in Australia, Medibank Private, August 2008)

The consequences of excessive workplace stress include:

  • Decreased productivity
  • Loss of motivation
  • Lack of teamwork
  • High staff turnover
  • Dissatisfied customers and clients

Through our range of experiential stress management workshops we’ll empower your staff to mobilise their inner resources – to improve their health, maximise their performance and build more effective workplace relationships.

What’s unique about our stress management workshops?

Our stress management workshops are skills-based and highly interactive. We’ll train your staff in practical self-management strategies for minimising stress and maximising personal and professional performance. Your staff will learn how to:

  • Recognise stress symptoms before they become an issue
  • Use stress reduction techniques while they work
  • Think more clearly
  • Stay calm under pressure, and
  • Get more done in less time.

All our stress management workshops include training in practical stress management techniques. Via the Working Mind app participants take away mp3 audio files of the techniques delivered during the workshops to facilitate ongoing practice of their new-found skills.
