Stress & Personal Resilience for HR

One Day Training
Nairobi, Kenya

08 Oct

More >

Why?

Your staff are the most valuable resource of your organisation. They are fundamental to productivity and the success of all projects.

By the nature of the work, your staff is exposed to stress and at risk of seeing their capacity to deal with stress and adversity slowly erode. A recent longitudinal study on the psychological impact of humanitarian work found that as a result of high stress environments and often the lack of perceived organisation support, aid workers were significantly at risk for burnout, depression and anxiety.

In the light of this, HR has a huge and growing role in the implementation of staff care. Staff care ranges from personal emergency preparedness and response to staff wellbeing on a day-to-day basis.

Staff care requires an institutional culture, with management playing a key role, to create an environment where staff can seek assistance when needed. A culture where HR is actively involved in monitoring and maintaining high levels of wellbeing at work, employee engagement and happiness.

HR however need to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills so that they can safely and confidently address staff care challenges within their organisation. At the same time HR are at risk themselves of seeing their capacity to deal with stress and adversity erode. 

How?

InterHealth offers a one-day training course that will help HR managers to understand the dynamics and the impact of various forms of stress, to recognize common stress reactions, and equip them with some basic skills on how to care for others and for themselves by building up and maintaining personal resilience.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Understand the nature of stress
  • Identify how to recognise stress and burnout symptoms within themselves, their team or workplace
  • Identify how to prevent an unhealthy and stressful workplace
  • Develop strategies to effectively manage and reduce stress within themselves and/or their staff
  • Take away a practical action plan aiming at reducing stress levels within themselves and in the workplace

InterHealth uses a variety of learning methods suitable for adults to cater for different learning styles. This training uses:

  • PowerPoint
  • Brainstorming
  • Group discussion and feedback
  • Drawing
  • Brief games
  • Scenario-based work
  • Working on personal output to take away

To take away

At the end of the training each participant will take away:

  1. An InterHealth workbook on ‘Stress & Personal Resilience’ as well as any other relevant resources to remind participants of their learning and extend their thinking.
  2. A Personal Resilience Review including identified action points to strengthen personal resilience.

Who is it for?

We have designed this workshop primarily for human resources professionals; for those that make every single international aid organisation work – it’s people.

Stress & Personal Resilience for Staff

One Day Training
Nairobi, Kenya

15 Oct

More >

Why?

For many of us, stress is part of the job. It is in fact an aspect of the work that most of us are attracted to as it challenges us to perform difficult tasks in challenging circumstances. This means that to a certain extent, we may perceive stress as positive and motivating. It prompts us to take action and to shift our thinking patterns to new perspectives and possibilities.

However, in the long run stress can takes its toll, and our capacity to deal with it and adversity can slowly erode. It can have a detrimental impact on our physical health as well as in our professional and personal lives, and in some cases, can lead to burnout. Because of this, it is evident that learning how to deal with stress is an essential part of providing efficient and effective humanitarian services, as caring for others without caring for yourself is an impossible task.

We believe that caring for one self includes actively building and maintaining your capacity to deal with stress and adversity, also known as your ’personal resilience’. Evidence shows that there are identifiable factors which boost resilience that can be developed through time and training.

How?

InterHealth offers a one-day training course that will look into a variety of approaches to stress in order to increase resilience and prevent burnout.

In the morning we will be looking into stress, its symptoms, and tools to reduce them. We will also discuss ways of reducing stress in the workplace for both yourself and your team. In the afternoon, we look into resilience and explore the factors that positively contribute to a person’s resilience.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Understand the nature of stress;
  • Identify how to recognise stress and burnout symptoms;
  • Develop strategies to effectively manage and reduce stress;
  • Understand what is meant by personal resilience;
  • Have an overview of the five themes for personal resilience and be able to use them to review resilience factors and support needs;
  • Develop the capacity to understand resilience factors as a risk assessment marker.
