Dealing with stress more effectively

How do you react under pressure? Which signals do you recognize?

We all have developed our own ways of coping successfully with stressful situations. To protect ourselves and hide our insecurity. Some might react irritated or sarcastic in an exciting situation, where others remains too nice or tries to hide their discomfort by giggling nervously or talking too quickly.

To discover the reactions to stressful situations of your clients, coachees, participants, employees, or yourself in a very accessible way, we have developed the coaching cards; Stress! Do you recognize the signs?. Using the 50 beautifully illustrated coaching cards enables you to quickly identify your protection mechanisms. Use of the provided exercise included in the card deck, or with the help of the exercises you’ll find here on the website to get started more effectively with stressful situations.

Card of the month

Suddenly feeling sleepy

Picture this: you’re at work, desk piled high. Emails flood in on your screen, while around you, colleagues shout back and forth.

Tensions are running high, and yet… you can’t stop yawning.

If you’ve ever felt your eyelids droop with a big presentation looming, or craved a lie down before a critical meeting, you’re not alone.

Any time bad news makes you want to sleep your troubles away, or a tight deadline triggers weariness, stress may be the cause of your unwelcome sleepiness.

Today I’ll explain why that happens and what you can do to get back in the zone.
