Master Classes and On-Line Training

Successful organisations equip their people with the skills to do their role well. But one of the most powerful, flexible skills your people can develop is often overlooked or taken for granted. Their ability to deal smoothly with stress.

Because no matter how talented, dedicated or experienced they are, every one of your people deals with stress every day: Competing priorities, difficult customers, tight deadlines; or issues from outside work, like relationship problems, health challenges or money worries.

Any one of these stresses has the potential to seriously affect an employee’s wellbeing and effectiveness.  But there’s more to stress than its down sides...

Stress becomes a problem when the total amount someone’s facing exceeds their resources for dealing with it. It can be uncomfortable, and disruptive.  

But below that problem threshold, where it’s matched by the resources, the stress can be really useful. The challenges we rise to, leading to focus instead of fight-flight. Our useful stresses give us energy rather than draining it away, even if they’re something we wouldn’t have chosen to face. 

In my National Survey, 34% of people said they enjoy the stress of their role - these useful stresses bring out your people’s very best. 

The FAST Pathways Master Classes and online training are designed to build those inner resources, raising the problem threshold so that your people can take more of their stresses smoothly in their stride. To embed the skills to keep stress useful, and improve Mental Health across the organisation. Topics include

And it’s not just about what your people learn on the day.  I've a wide range of on-line resources to include in your training package, enabling people to re-visit, refresh and add to their skills whenever they like.

Training can also be completely on-line, offering maximum flexibility and anonymity (a common barrier to effective intervention).  Each skill takes around 10 minutes to learn - there’s no fluff or faff, just what’s needed, so it’s easy to fit into busy lives.  Colleagues learning the FAST Pathways skills also develop a shared language, becoming better able to signpost and support each other through challenges.
