State Employees: Training for ND State Employees
This Month's Spotlight on Training: Taming the Dragons
The busy summer season is here. There’s nothing like stress this time of year; money runs short as we pay for vacation expenses, camps and activities for our children, and it’s time to start purchasing school supplies/clothing!
In the course, “Taming the Dragons”, we explore stress and time management. We say “Dragons” because we have some internal dragons that are about to bite us. We believe that time and stress management are very closely related – if one of those might be “out of sync”, there’s a fair chance the other one is not far behind. To keep these ‘dragons’ at bay we help participants find their dragons and ways to begin limiting their effects.
We take a look at what stress is; what its symptoms are; identify personality factors that can influence our tendencies towards stress; and help you develop a stress management plan. We then take a look at the issues of time; self-discover your time management style; learn the symptoms of ineffective time management; and learn the “Golden Rules” of time management.
We all experience stress; and perhaps this course might give you some ideas on how you can better manage your “Dragon” before too many of them catch up to you!
