Event description
Skills to keep stress useful

About this Event

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, underpinning better mental wellbeing.

In this session, we’ll explore the Stress Converter Process, designed to embed the skills to convert the disruptive into neutral or useful stresses. It gently builds on what’s already working, underpinning increased wellbeing, and often resulting in people worrying less, sleeping better, feeling less overloaded, and dealing more smoothly with challenging relationships.

Speaker/company profile

Sue Evans has delivered Operational Excellence and culture change for several international organisations. Highlights include leading a programme which more than doubled site productivity, and delivering £1.9M waste reduction in under 5 months. Leading these kind of changes, she experienced a fair amount of stress – and it wasn’t always useful!

But it laid some solid foundations in understanding how we don’t always do what’s good for us, even when we recognise that what we’re doing isn’t working. Changing mindsets and behaviours isn’t easy - that’s why trying to manage stress gives such patchy results. The skills Sue works with are a powerful alternative.

The skills have been honed over almost 10 years of working one-to-one and with groups, and have underpinned numerous breakthroughs. Most take only around 10 minutes to learn, and many people start to notice differences right away.

Sue is a Master Practitioner and Trainer of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and an Approved Havening® Practitioner, trained in each by the original creators. She has a Diploma in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), a combined Diploma in Hypnotherapy, Coaching and NLP; and Institute of Leadership and Management certification as a Mentor and Coach. Sue created the FAST Pathways® programme to share powerful skills for better Mental Health.

Tea, coffee and light sandwiches will be available from 6pm arrival.
