How to keep stress useful - CIPD South West Collaboration Session

Event details:

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week, this South West Region collaboration webinar will show how to build resources to keep stress useful and prevent mental ill-health.

We all experience countless stresses every day, and not all that stress is bad. As long as it's matched by the resources for dealing with it, stress can bring out your very best (even if it’s not an experience you’d have chosen).

But when someone's stress outstrips those resources, it becomes unpleasant and disruptive - for both them, and the organisation. So building up those resources is one of the most powerful ways to keep stress useful, helping to prevent the most common forms of mental ill-health.

In this session, we’ll explore how to convert the disruptive into neutral or useful stresses to gently build on what’s already working. This will help to underpin increased wellbeing, resulting in people worrying less, sleeping better, feeling less overloaded, and dealing more smoothly with challenging relationships.

Key session takeaways include how to

  • Get the best from stress without spending time and energy managing it
  • Stop runaway worrying, and sleep more restfully
  • Make Helium your key to calm
  • Reduce the impact of dealing with difficult people

and avoid the biggest mistake which many organisations’ wellbeing programmes are making.

After the presentation

How often have you attended a great presentation, but by the time you came to implement what you’d learned, you’d forgotten what it was? This session is accompanied by comprehensive after-session resources to help CIPD Members put what we explore into practice, to improve both their own, and their organisations’ Wellbeing.
