Optimism and resilience
‘we may not be responsible for the world that created our minds, but we can take responsibility for the mind with which we create our world.’ Gabor Mate
Elizabeth takes an all-encompassing approach to managing stress which can occur due to a number of factors. Elizabeth identifies practical ways in which leaders, managers and employees can best balance their stress levels and develop their resilience in order to prevent problems before they occur, reduce high levels of stress and address any underlying unhelpful patterns of thinking and limiting beliefs. It really is better to avoid an employee feeling that they can’t come into the workplace due to stress – this is tough to deal with for both you and your employee (and if that’s not enough, it can be very costly and time-consuming to address). Elizabeth encourages people to address any area of their lives that may be contributing to their stress levels with a focus on ensuring that they have sufficient time to recover and rejuvenate. Elizabeth also considers whether there are any organisational factors that need to be looked at.
