Time and Stress Management

"Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow."

24 hours.  We all have the same amount of time available to us each day.  And that time is valuable. Once it has passed, it is gone forever. Quite literally, time is life. If you can master how you spend your time, you can master your life.

These days stress has become a common topic of conversation. The way we deal with stress is the main difference that separates us, and the degree to which we are affected is also a major variable. Not only can stress affect your ability to work, consequently affecting your business, but more importantly – your health. Stress is ‘taken’ by the individual and not ‘given’ by the pressure of work. In other words, it is not about being faced with pressure, but more how we react to pressure.

This workshop will provide the participants with the key skills of managing both their stress and their time. It will provide them with skills that will help them feel more in control of their lives and give them greater satisfaction at work and at home.
