According to a poll picked up by The Daily Express and Metro today (10/04/2012), 6 out of 10 women report that stress at work is ruining their sex lives.The same poll extrapolates that a million women are taking medication as a result of stress at work and half are considering having a baby to get a break from work. (Rather an accomplishment when it has already ruined your sex life, or maybe that is the other half). Despite these strongly negative findings, two thirds of women believe that success comes from a job they love rather than the money they earn. So why are they let down so badly, and more usefully, what can you do about it?
In March I gave a talk entitled ‘Building resilience and managing stress: how to achieve more and strain less’ at Santander’s HQ for the APM. No wonder it booked solid without even being advertised. I will be delivering the same talk later this month in Leeds then across the country – look out for dates on the ‘Talks‘ tab of www.nlp4pm.com.
I have also launched a related website: www.Stress-Man.co.uk where you can find the slides and also a pdf of the feature article on managing stress from ITNow magazine which was extracted verbatim from my book ‘NLP for Project Managers’. I will be delivering a one day workshop demonstrating techniques to build resilience on the 12th September.
Maybe I should bill myself as ‘The love Doctor’?
