We would like to introduce our tool developed within project SMEs tool to prevent Burnout. The aim of the project is to prevent burnout at work and raise resilience, to help SMEs staff and managers to forecast burnout, to recognize the warning signs, to take steps to regain balance and to change peoples’ approach to a balanced life, to improve working conditions, and to reduce the cost of burnout, and stress.
THE TOOLKIT CONTAINS:
One of the tools is “the social styles” tool. It is the tool that we provide to strengthen your resilience with respect to personal coping.
Experience at work
When you’re experiencing prolonged periods of stress, it is important to recognize the areas where you do have control, so that you can keep your stress levels within reason. Maintaining this focus is not always easy, which is why the American psychologist Stephen Covey developed a model that he called “the Circles of focus”.
Think yourself strong
The idea that stress cannot be avoided is wrong, nothing could be further from the truth. It is not the event itself that determines our behaviour and emotions; it’s the way we handle it and look at the event from the perspective of our own (irrational) thoughts….
Create resilience in your environment
In this toolkit, we want to work on your resilience and that of others by focusing on a ‘connecting way’ of communication by Marshall Rosenberg.
Creating resilience in your environment starts with connecting to your environment. How you communicate about your needs, feelings, problems and stress, has a great impact on how your environment and people will develop a connection with you.
Health and well-being
Stress can be seen as a type of load that you carry. Whether this load is experienced as positive or negative depends on the balance between capacity and load. You will experience negative stress when your load exceeds your carrying capacity. The carrying capacity and load capacity is different for each individual. So, the intent is to reduce your load and to make your carrying capacity as high as possible. You can do this by looking to the things that give you energy and the thing that eat at your energy.
