Turning Pressure into Performance

In close cooperation with Danny McGuigan and Stephen Williams of the United Kingdom, this innovative program helps individuals, teams and whole organizations to deal with stress. Based on the premise that stress cannot be avoided in today's work environment, we are faced with the fact that it can either deteriorate our performance or be used to enhance it, depending on the coping mechanisms we employ.

During this workshop participants come to understand better how they are currently coping with stress and are guided to expand their effective coping strategies. When whole teams or organizations decide to participate, aggregate data can be used to help the organization identify culture change opportunities.

Typical workshop length: 1 - 1½ days

Usual number of participants: 10 to 60

Methods: In advance of the workshop participants are asked to complete a 30-40 minute Pressure Management Indicator. During the workshop each participant has a 30-40 minute individual feedback session with a specially trained coach to explore her or his own individual results. Techniques useful for everyone are presented in the workshop.
