Learning how to control emotions in order to better manage stressful situations is the key to improving personal and professional skills in any workplace. Self-awareness is the first step to face daily tasks and to deal with overwhelming situations that are known to cause tension and conflict in professional environments.
During the course meetings the participants had the opportunity to empower their skills through both theory and practical activities, focusing on a high range of topics that went from technical definitions about stress and its main forms to relaxation techniques like breathing exercises, muscle relaxation and visualization.
First of all, the participants analyzed the main manifestations of stress on both cognitive and behavioural levels, also learning how to recognize all of its outcomes to exploit them in a positive and productive way.
Moreover, they took part in group activities aiming to increase their planning and time management skills in order to avoid time stealers and make the most of their efficiency at work.
In this context, coming from the same working environment was a treasure for this group of co-workers during their whole experience: they had the opportunity to speak up for themselves about important issues that affected their team, finally achieving innovative solutions to turn these problems into new possibilities of growth, both individually and collectively.
