Many people are ill-equipped to deal with modern-day stressors, causing them to react as though they are being attacked.Coaching for Resilienceuses the principles of positive psychology to show coaches, trainers and managers how to motivate and inspire people to build greater resilience to pressure.Adrienne Green and John Humphrey present seven key strategies for managing stress levels, based around the awareness and understanding of the two psychological drivers that underlie all stress. With practical exercises and examples, this comprehensive resource offers a clear understand of the psychology of stress and develops effective strategies for overcoming it.
