Few would argue that life and work are hard enough without the complications surrounding self-defeating emotions, behaviors, and habits. The multiple forces that bear down on us every day can eventually take their toll; no wonder people often feel anxious, resentful, taken advantage of, and even trapped. This one-day class is intended to help participants understand how to stay focused on their goals—whether work or personal—while ups and downs occur around them. Participants will gain insight into developing personal flexibility to deal with uncertainty and to find meaning in what they are doing. This seminar will focus on the important personal skill of self-control and self-determination. Participants will learn to recognize their personal stressors and to deal with stress. Over the course of the day, the class will learn how to make better choices at work and elsewhere, how to practice self-discipline, and how to prioritize. In addition, others issues to be covered include:
- What stress is and when it occurs
- The toll stress takes on physical and mental health
- Identifying vulnerability to stress
- Developing skills to respond to stressors, including organizational and time management skills such as establishing goals, analyzing how time is spent, controlling interruptions, improving meetings, and conquering procrastination
