  OPTION 1 - ORDER THE "STRESS MASTERY PROGRAM"  
   

The Stress Mastery Program enables employees to identify the source of their stress, pin-point important stress “warning” signs and risk areas, and provide a clear and easy to understand guide for less stress and greater resilience. There are three components of the Program: Assess Stress, Feedback on Stress Risk areas and Learning How to Master Stress. Each person who participates in the Program receives all three [3] of the following Stress Mastery Products

1ST - STRESS RISK ASSESSMENT WITH THE "SMQ"

Assessing one’s stress “risk” areas is the first step. Change requires knowing what to change. Without this The Stress Mastery Questionnaire (SMQ)* is used with each employee to accomplish this goal. This valid and reliable tool uses scientifically develop questions to provide specific information and feedback on the11 SMQ “risk” scales; such as: Anger/Intolerance, Perfectionistic Thinking, Disappointment, and others. Each employee is emailed a link to take the SMQ, along with a unique Access Code. By entering the code, the SMQ assessment is initiated and the employee takes the confidential assessment.

2ND - GET FEEDBACK - KNOW WHAT TO CHANGE

Immediately upon completing the SMQ, employees receive a confidential one-page Stress “Risk” Profile and, shortly thereafter, a seven page Detailed Stress Report that is e-mailed directly to each person. The Profile gives employees a snap-shot how they scored, from High to Low “Risk,” on each of the SMQ Scales, while the Report gives details for each scale. The SMQ provides feedback in three main areas; Stress Warning Signs, Stress Effects and “Stress Triggers” or Stressors.

3RD - LEARN THE KEYS TO STRESS MASTERY

Knowledge is key to taking action for positive change. While the SMQ and the Reports provide the foundation for change, but more is needed. We provide each person with the Stress Mastery Guide: A Road Map for Change. The Guide provides the knowledge, tools and proven effective techniques to help them reduce and master stress. The Guide is an essential component of the STRESS MASTER PROGRAM because it provides the necessary information and research-based strategies to help master stress! The Guide can be used in a stress management training program, coaching or counseling session or for self-study and self-development. The Guide also provides an Action Plan that gives clear direction for personal development and stress mastery.

HOW TO ORDER THE STRESS MASTERY PROGRAM

Ordering the Stress Mastery Program your employees is simple. First, determine how many employees will be participating. This usually requires talking with your employees, discussing the merits of offering the Stress Mastery Program and getting a census for who will be participating. Employee engagement in the decision is always a good idea.

Second, discuss with management and employees about what they would like to see in a their Stress Mastery Program. There are three main types of programs typically offered, but there others approaches that can be considered, depending on the goals and needs of the employees and company. Contact us to discuss other options. Here are the three model programs:

-> Employee Self-Guided Learning - No Coaching or Training

In the Self-Guided approach, each employee is provided with an explanation of the program and agrees to participate. An email is sent to each person with a brief explanation of the program, along with instructions to click on the assessment link and enter their unique and confidential access code to get started and take the SMQ. Upon completing the SMQ, the employee immediately receives his/her Stress Profile and, within 24 hours or less, their Detailed Stress Report is delivered by email along with a link to download the PDF of the Stress Mastery Guide: A Road May to Resilience. Follow up motivational emails can be provided to keep each person focused on positive change.

-> Employee Learning - With Internal or External Training

The process of taking the SMQ is essentially the same as in #1 above, with the addition of a stress management/mastery training workshop or seminar component provided by corporate trainers, wellness professionals or EAP personnel. The Stress Mastery Program is essentially integrated into the workshop/seminar. An external training professional can also be brought in to conduct the workshop. Stressmaster International has a team of Stressmaster Associates who are highly experienced in facilitating such a workshop.

-> Employee Learning - With Personal Coaching

In this scenario, the Stress Mastery Program is used in the same way as #2, but instead of a stress mastery (management) training program, each employee is assigned to a stress, health or wellness coach. The coach or EAP person meets with the employee to go over the results and to help him or her to establish an Action Plan that can be followed. Follow up coaching or phone contact is advised.

Third, based on the size of the group and the format for the program, either place an order or contact us to answer questions and discuss logistics. Learn More...
