Vexation management aka stress handling

To whom:

For business and organizational directors and specialists with easy-to-use techniques and methods for reducing daily psycho-emotional stress and regaining balance.


We are accustomed to saying the word stress with negative meaning.

In the workplace employees stress about deadlines and ASAPs, from manager’s incomprehension and colleague undone and too much tasks, from lacking time and too much or less consumed coffee.

Situation in home is not better – wife/husband, children, parents, relatives and friends ask for attention. Here someone get ill or get in car crash, or daily quarrel, or politic nonsense, or even worse – economic crisis.

The vicious circle is forming - bad at work, bad at home, and vice versa.

A large proportion of employees suffer from excessive stress and even burn-out syndrome. For businesses, this means long-term low productivity, worker sickness, a tense atmosphere and disagreements, more frequent errors, low motivation, employee leaving.

This workshop is about stress being good! It is punctuated and controlled. Stress is like electricity – if you don't know how to use it, it can kill you, but if you know how to use it, it is a great way of achieving great success.

In the workshop we will look at the methods of controlling stress, putting stress on a useful role and applying it in productivity, creativity, relationships, and good mood.
