Performing Under Pressure – Doing Your Best When It Matters Most

We all experience pressure; whether at work, home or play. Pressure provides the stimulation we need to take action, perform at our best and achieve our goals. This sort of pressure is healthy and rewarding. However, when pressure becomes excessive and we feel inadequate or unable to cope, that’s when we experience stress.

Stress has a detrimental effect on our performance and, in the longer term, a damaging effect on our health and well-being. In order to enjoy life and guarantee our well-being, we need to be able to cope with short term stress and avoid chronic stress.

Benefits of this 1 day workshop

This workshop is aimed at people who want to learn how to perform better under pressure and by doing so reduce the stress in their lives. Less stress leads to greater physical and emotional well-being. The workshop provides an opportunity for you to learn and develop a suite of valuable life skills.

Participants with gain an understanding of how we experience pressure and stress and will be better able to recognise when they are nearing the tipping point - the point at which pressure turns to stress. Once we pass the tipping point out performance and well-being suffers.

By the end of the day participants will be able to:

  • understand how we experience pressure, stress and anxiety
  • apply this knowledge to recognise the sign of stress in self and others
  • use a range of new skills, strategies and techniques to manage pressure, short and long term stress more effectively
  • experience a greater sense of control
  • reduce their stress level
