Stress and Change Management Workshops

Laughing at Stress: Humour in Times of Change!


The only constant...is constant change.

How we respond to change and stress is a personal choice when operating and managing your business.

Keeping your sense of humour and adopting some simple philosophical perspectives might be the healthiest approach to dealing effectively with stress and change.


Stress happens ... but maintaining your positive attitude and a sense of humour really helps. In fact, how we choose

our responses (personally and professionally) through times of stress defines who we are and who we will become.

This humourous look at change and stress is appreciated by those who expect the road ahead will continue to have many twists and turns!

The Stress Survival Kit


More and more we seem to live and work in an environment that makes demands on our every fiber of being. Stress comes from what we perceive others put on us, and what we seem to put on ourselves. Managing stress is about learning and using proven and common-sense strategies every day in our personal and professional lives. In this comprehensive look at stress, we discuss diet, task and job balance, keeping paperwork under control, ensuring daily time to relax and rejuvenate and to ensure a simple and manageable stress management support system.

required as we endeavour to operate a productive and profitable business.

The Stress Busting Summit


As our lives get busier and often more complex with work, life and family pressures and stresses, the importance of responding to various stressors become increasingly more important. Join for a "stress busting day" and learn everything you need to know about stress so you can develop a personal plan to ensure that you cope with it in a positive, proactive and productive manner. It is an unrealistic expectation that you will have a "stress free" life and in fact, we need healthy amount of stress in our lives to be able to function.


What can you do when your world seems overwhelmingly stressful? How can you put stress in a healthy perspective and what "tools" can you draw on to mitigate your personal, professional and interpersonal stresses?


Throughout the "stress busting summit", you will likely laugh and chuckle as you learn positive and insightful ways to deal with stress and definitely think about committing new approaches and solutions so you can live with stress and various stressors in a productive manner. The reality is ...the human experience is a stressful ride in life but we must build "shock absorbers" and framework for healthier living, a positive support system, a capacity to live a more balanced life and an ability to laugh and put stress consistently into a useful perspective.





The Abundant Life "Buffet"!


Because of the new diversity of the staff within todayís contemporary workplace, we created full-day workshop. Our approach for this workshop is to present a wide range of skills with something

to satisfy everyone. Our common threads will be on improving communication between people and inside team environments, working together and collaboration, developing a positive attitude and a philosophy of gratitude as an outlook in life, tolerance and sensitivity to people of different approaches to work. The day concludes with a session on how we can all work together to ignite more joy and purpose in our careers and support the people we support with greater purpose.
