Managing Work Related Stress: Engaging the older generation

Is age just a ‘numbers game’ or is it more of an attitude and mindset? Do we really start forgetting things at the age 50 or is this an excuse for being lazy and not keeping our minds active?

Getting older happens to everybody and it should be seen as a new chapter in one’s life, says Motivational Speaker Carole Spiers.

The Key to Success: Plan for a Stress-free Retirement

As retirement becomes a new chapter in your life, it is important to approach that lifetime change in a positive way. One issue that many people fail to consider when planning for their retirement, is the potential stress that can come from a fundamental lifestyle change coupled with an often new environment, as explained by Motivational Speaker Carole Spiers.

Listening is the Secret Weapon of Good Leaders

Do you ever feel awkward in conversation with others – either at work or at home? Are there times when you are at a complete loss as what to say next? Have you ever been accused of interrupting or finishing other people’s sentences for them? If so, you are not alone.
Being a good conversationalist is an art. For some, it comes naturally and the words flow without effort but for many others, it is often a challenge.
If I sit back and listen to a discussion that is flowing well, I can actually hear the specific techniques that are being used quite naturally.
These inter-personal skills can be learnt and here are some tips to help you become a better communicator.

Stressed? How to say ‘No’

Many people find it difficult to say ‘no’ to any request. Being assertive is an art and, as with other arts, we need to learn the skill of how to refuse a request without affecting the relationship. The ‘yes/no’ response may appear to be an uncontroversial subject but in fact, our decision to agree, or to refuse, a specific request may impact not only the outcome of a particular issue, but also our profile and reputation – and possibly upon our own self-image.

Therefore, Motivational Speaker Carole Spiers says, it is important to learn how to be confident and direct in dealing with others and being able to say ‘no’ without giving offence.

Stress Tips: Glass Ceilings Can Be Shattered

Stressed? The pressure of managing a work-life balance is a reality for most women in the workplace – whether she is a director or a secretary. Even with support, there is often a role conflict in being a working mother. And in today’s high-tech, high pressure workplace, women have to find a way to assuage the inevitable feelings of guilt that sometimes rise to the surface.

Coaching

Stress at Work: Making time for your colleagues

Carole Spiers, Motivational Speaker’s trip to Dubai, this month, has been an interesting time of meeting new business people, catching up with some ‘oldies’ and delivering Boardroom briefings to companies who want to know how to better manage, or minimise, stress in the workplace.

Coaching Session

Hard work never hurt anyone! Need some stress relief?

Are you being asked to work longer for no more money?
Would you like your team to put in more hours without feeling resentful?

How can you ensure people still put in the hours without feeling resentful or become stressed? Three simple solutions come to mind from, Stress Management expert, Carole Spiers.

Stress management can be good for your heart

A healthy person can respond to pressure and enjoy the stimulus. However a person who has been under intense pressure over a long period is unlikely to have sufficient coping reserves to manage cumulative stress. The first signs that they are not coping will inevitably show up in their work performance, in their behaviour and, ultimately, also in their appearance and persona. It is rather like a car trying to run on an empty tank.

Managing the Royal Pressure at Work

It has been announced, in Britain, that the heir to the throne, Prince William, is to marry Kate Middleton, next year.
But Carole Spiers says, ‘Marriage is a major decision for any of us to make but Kate will be joining the British royal family, and will become the wife of a future King of England. And that means that she will also be starting a new job and there will be enormous stresses to overcome, at least in the beginning.’
