As the pace of business change quickens it becomes even more essential to reduce stress and operate with heightened awareness, vitality and enthusiasm. Stress affects everything we experience and most people are generally unaware of the skills and strategies to manage stress and pressure at work.

Increased responsibility, pressure and role uncertainty can lead to unprecedented levels of stress in the workplace, affecting performance at the office and health and happiness at home. As the cost of stress to the employer continues to grow internationally, organizations must recognize stress in their employees and train managers to better manage stress productively. Surveys continually show that more and more employees report their work to be very or extremely stressful, citing the nature of their role, relationships at work or their employer as the cause.
