Effective Time and Stress Management at Workplace


Course introduction

Do you realise that we are constantly faced with challenges of dealing with incoming “stuff” such as emails, calls, messages and difficulty of having to say “no” while our thoughts having to handle too many tasks at the same time?

At work, do we really respond to these stuff in an effective and efficient way? If not, then it will require techniques and skills in making better choices and decisions within the available time.

In our jobs, we also experience work-related stress due to lack of time. Too much pressure over a sustained period can, however, lead to a negative stressful situation. We should realise that stress is an “invisible disease” and can affect us, our colleagues, our employer and those closest to us.

By signing up to attend this one-day intensive course, you will improve your present quality of life and be personally effective at a workplace. The essential tools and techniques provided in this course will greatly assist you to manage both time and stress management in your daily life.

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.”
Michael Altshuler

“Stress is not what happens to us but rather how we response to what happens and the response is something we can choose.”
Maureen Killoran
