Everyone will experience anxiety at some point in their lives. Anxiety is a normal reaction characterized by feelings of fear or apprehension. One of the leading places that individuals will experience anxiety or excessive stress is the workplace. While it is normal to have some fear or feel out of place at work occasionally, it can become a serious problem when the anxiety becomes unmanageable and keeps you from performing your everyday activities. Anxiety can have a negative impact on your quality of work, work performance, and affect your relationships with colleagues. Identifying your workplace anxiety and learning powerful coping strategies will help you to work with your anxiety, rather than against it.


With our Managing Workplace Anxiety workshop, your participants will learn resources and effective skills that will help them recognize and manage anxiety in the workplace. Participants will feel more confident in their professional environment, as well as more prepared to overcome the challenges that the workplace may bring.
