How Can We Do Our Jobs Better?

 

How to Reduce Stress, Increase Focus, Wash Our Emotions Between Projects and Difficult People as Well as Learning How to Develop Empathy for Others

It is no secret that work can be very rewarding  but it can also be very stressful. In order to fix any problem you have to acknowledge that problem and when an employee becomes stressed and frazzled, work does have a tendency to suffer. So how do we overcome the stress that occurs with work? This program will address this through a four pronged attack. It is imperative that we reduce our stress through stress reduction techniques and learn how to increase our focus. The second step is to learn how to change our sometimes frazzled state and wash our emotions between projects and dealing with difficult people. The third step is to use strategic thinking, critical thinking and creativity techniques for clarifying our thinking. The fourth step is to understand what our fellow employees are experiencing. We will peer into the brain to see what exactly is happening to our brains and the brains of the people we can no longer agree with so that we may understand their point of view.
