We teach people to recognise and manage the signs and symptoms long before crisis point, preventing the many difficulties it brings; promoting wellbeing in the workplace, happier environments, team cohesion and productivity.
THE INNER MENTOR
We help Employers, Managers and those working in positions of authority to identify, understand and manage the signs and symptoms of stress, anxiety and burnout in the workplace, long before crisis point, preventing the many difficulties it brings to an individual, the team and to the company.
Based upon fifteen years' experience, working therapeutically in the area of Occupational Health and integrating the theory of Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychosynthesis Psychology, our training program teaches you a proven process, which enables the development of a sophisticated level of self awareness and personal growth, promoting self care, care of your team and greater productivity.
You will be able to identify the early subtle signs of stress in another, those vulnerable to work-related stress, and those who create the stressful environment. You will understand the psychological thinking which drives a person to work related stress, enabling you to support your staff and manage the issue long before it spirals out of control.
Such an approach helps to prevent performance issues, behaviour issues, days off, long term sickness, burnout, team conflict, morale issues, fear based environments, resignation, early retirement and financial loss to the company.
We teach you to understand and manage the psychological thinking which leads to work-related stress, anxiety, burnout and depression.
You will develop a high level of self awareness to identify and manage patterns of behaviour which until now have unconsciously driven and controlled you.
Such levels of awareness will not only enable you to recognise the signs and symptoms of work-related stress in yourself but it will additionally enable you to identify the vulnerability in others, sometimes before they have recognised it in themselves.
What you will learn is life-changing, because it not only affects your working life balance, it also impacts upon every other area of your life.
Work-related stress creeps up on you, slowly chipping away at your confidence and self-esteem. Identified by many as starting months, often a year before the point of incapacitation and burnout.
Does the following relate to you?
You are finding your work difficult. There is too much to do, you are feeling overwhelmed and you wonder whether anyone has noticed that you are struggling. You begin to isolate yourself from your colleagues and become paranoid you are being discussed, being thought of as a failure, incompetent, lazy and unable to cope.
You are unable to focus, forget things and make mistakes. Your worrying escalates, you cannot switch off and you cannot sleep, replaying conversations, actions and questioning yourself.
You stay late, take work home and go into work over the weekend to catch up. You are relieved Friday is here but become anxious because Monday is getting closer.
You become distant from your family and annoyed at your loved ones who have noticed your change in behaviour. You withdraw from your friends and colleagues and feel there is no way out.
Then one day you just can’t go to work.
The training program teaches a process of self-development which empowers a person to be more in control of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours in the workplace, and in their lives. Each person will learn to:
Identify and understand destructive patterns of behaviour developed in the past which unconsciously motivates and drives actions today; actions which create stress and anxiety
Recognise the signs when they or another have been triggered and are functioning psychologically from a more vulnerable, or destructive place
Manage such psychological processes in order to prevent the development and escalation of work-related stress
The training programme aims to develop within every person, a powerful resource referred to as the ‘Inner Mentor: an Internal Guidance System’; a psychological resource which positively supports, objectively notices and enables more control of the mind, incorporating the body and feelings as an early warning system.
The ‘Inner Mentor’ creates autonomy. It builds, self-confidence, self esteem, promotes self-care and enables an individual to become ‘Consciously Competent’ in the workplace and in their lives. Our aim is to reach many to create happier working environments which are not based on fear.
