Time and stress management
Our one-day intensive workshop on Time and Stress Management will encourage you to take stock of the direction your career and personal life is taking. Personal wellness comes from sensible choices you make about time usage. Making the right choices and grasping opportunities require objective analysis of your habits. You need to develop courage to replace the trivial with the vital things in life and to prioritise and delegate. Stress is not caused by a lack of time but by the inappropriate use thereof. In this workshop you will be guided to examine your time habits and then to diagnose "time robbers". Once you understand where your time is going, we give you tools to free yourself from these robbers and to plan and use your precious time optimally. Planning, particularly in your job environment, is the key to living a well balanced stress-managed life.
