Our approach to learning and development at Stress Management Plus, both for individuals and for businesses, is to ensure as far as is possible that what we deliver involves ongoing - and not just 'one-off - development and support, hence the combination in this instance of:

The purpose of the programme is to enable staff to
Delegates begin the planning process during the classroom session by putting together their Personal Resilience Plan: what they are going to do at work/at home to achieve their personal/professional goals.
The training and coaching we provide centres around
This is an empowering and positive process in which delegates are encouraged and motivated to acknowledge that we can and must take responsibility for how we think, feel and behave. We can as a result focus on our personal sphere of influence and what we can control, and move forward and make plans on this basis.
Examples of the Attitudes, Activities and Behaviours delegates typically choose to work towards: Be more assertive at work/home; Be more positive, confident, optimistic; Develop meaning and purpose at work/home; Believe in myself more; Exercise; Have realistic expectations; Set personal/professional goals; Nurture relationships; Be more sociable; Focus on the present and future (not the past)
These are just some examples. What links these actions is that they are all likely to contribute to improvements in performance, to benefit the individual and by extension the organisation.
To recap, the coaching element of the programme – typically involving a combination of listening, questioning, feedback and goal-setting - provides support, encouragement and motivation, and crucially ongoing learning and development for participants.
