The Thinking Person’s Guide to Stress Management On-Demand Webinar

We partner with other training organizations and share our work with their audiences. After so many years of creating, broadcasting, and recording webinars, we have a decent inventory of free and fee-based programs out in the ether. We will start tracking them down and linking to them for your convenience. The free programs are a great way for you to audition some of our work, and most of the fee-based programs are reasonably priced. (The ten-year-old webinars are simple, but the ideas are still sound.)

The Thinking Person’s Guide to Stress Management

A corporate client asked me to craft a stress management program maybe 17 years ago. I quickly realized that most of the popular stress management models were really limited to “respite” tactics. Translation: Pause during the day while you continue to burn yourself out. Also, every author had their own favorite approaches, which might not fit the realities of the diversity of customers I serve. So we created a different model – a framework of four main ideas where participants could plug in their own ideas to complete. So, regardless if you work in a rural library, an urban business, or a suburban agency, you can create your own stress management model.

In January 2013, I broadcast a webinar using this model for the Public Library Association.

Although I like the webinar format, this program is well-suited for face-to-face staff meetings; most of the work is accomplished by the participants, sharing ideas with each other and the larger group. I have facilitated the program for hospice workers, government bookkeepers and accountants, librarians, and religious workers in hospitals.
