Stress Management Workshops by Karen Cromwell

 

Karen Cromwell has delivered twelve Stress Management Workshops for us recently, in company, to various levels of supervisors and management.

 

Feedback from those who have participated in the workshops has been excellent. Many staff have commented how much they enjoyed the training, benefited greatly from attending and will be using the techniques Karen has introduced them to in their everyday lives, both personally and professionally. A number of staff were also noted as saying the workshop was the best training day they had ever attended!

 

I wholeheartedly recommend Stress Management workshops by Karen Cromwell.

Dear Karen

 

I have been meaning to sit down and write you and Frances a short note of thanks following the recent Stress Awareness Training you conducted for Horton Automatics Ltd.

 

The response to your training within the organisation has been remarkable.  I had really expected a lot of cynicism across the board, and while there was some, I believe that by the second training day a lot of that had evaporated.  While there are a hard-core few who believe they got nothing out of it, a lot of employees have remarked to me how useful it has been for them, not just in recognising their own limits, but also in being able to recognise the symptoms of stress in others.  I have had one senior manager remark to me that using the breathing and ”checking in” techniques helps deal with the stress before it becomes a major problem.

 

The positive results of your training have manifested themselves to me in the forms of better communication between individuals and departments and by people willing to seek clarification and ask for help.  For one individual, the “lightbulb” was recognising that the day-to-day job is all about the team finding solutions and not just individuals on their own in a “them and us” situation.

 

I have no doubt that the work started by yourselves has benefitted Horton Automatics immensely already.  People definitely feel far more positive about tackling problems, knowing colleagues around them understand better the pressures they are working under.  This is translating into improved morale and motivation at the individual level, and ultimately into better customer service, which is what Hortons is all about.

 

 

I look forward to working with you in the future.

 

 

Best regards,

 

 

Brian
