We all have to face and deal with professional stress through our career a way or the other...
This is true regardless of the size of our company, its business performance or our position...
So, let us ask you a few questions here:
When was the last time that you had reassessed your EPIC limits?
Who are the members of your Personal Advisory Board?
How much can OsCAR help you manage the next critical discussion with your boss or key customer?
Have you clearly set your sanity zone?
If you don't know what to answer to these questions, our course will surely help you to learn how to better handle your work stress.
About the course content
Our course has been designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of work stress management in a simple and pragmatic approach.
From a practical definition of stress, the identification of its impacts and its sources, to the discovery and exploration of real-life proven coping strategies, we will navigate you to what we see as essential concepts and coping techniques related to professional stress.
Our goal is to set you up for a work-stress reduction journey on the long-term.
To enrich your learning experience, we have carefully designed self-reflection and fictional case study assignments that will allow you to prepare or deepen the lectures' content.
And to extent your learning journey far beyond the course itself, we have also prepared a one-page executive summary and a special last assignment calling for transformative actions on the long run.
Finally, we strongly believe that everyone of us has wisdom to share.
So, we definitely encourage you, as for every of our students, to share with us your feedback on how the course has helped you reach your goals.
We are also excited each time we get additional experiences of positive coping strategies from our students or each time we hear their success stories in relation to personal development or professional stress management.
And, of course, we always welcome broader inputs on how to enrich or improve our class.
