One of the most talked about workplace topics of the last decade has focused on how management can better learn to work with modern workers made up of Millennials and Generation X who don’t respond to the classic job stimuli.
But what if there was also training that focused on how modern workers can learn to manage their own stressors and work fears? That is the goal of the Retrain Your Brain Seminar, which is the collaboration of two experienced business and performance coaches, Dr. Ann Holland of Strive Performance Coaching and Liz Parker of LT Consulting.
According to a recent article by Dr. Holland in Forbes,stress is growing in the workplace.In one generation, the number of hours worked increased by 8% to an average of 47 hours per week.
• More than a third of workers (35%) say their jobs are harming their physical or emotional health.
• Of those surveyed, 38% say they are feeling more pressure at work this year than the year before.
• Job pressures interfere with personal relationships for 42% of workers.
• Nearly 50% of workers say they need help learning how to manage stress.
The nature of work is changing. Workers need to produce more with less and get it to market quicker than the competition. The first Retrain Your Brain seminar will occur on Friday, July 26 at Serendipity Labs in Greenville. The event starts at 7:30 with networking and registration and the program will run from 8 a.m. to noon. To register for the seminar, go to www.striveperformancecoaching.com. Two more seminars are slated for August 23 and September 20th. Seating is limited to 30 people per seminar.
Retain Your Brain will focus on helping people to understand the science behind what causes stress and how to develop real-time methods to destress. As part of Retrain Your Brain, each attendee will take a personalized stress assessment that will help them identify their own unique triggers. A key outcome will be learning how to take power back in managing stress and burnout.
