CIRCLE Recruitment & HR – Business & Behavioural Essential Skills
CIRCLE Recruitment & HR believes that teaching and building on fundamental business and motivational skills is an effective way to maintain employee motivation and increase the productivity of your workforce. Nurturing your employee’s skills and knowledge is key in achieving business goals and maintaining an efficient workforce.
The following training sessions are available:
- AP011 – Building Resilience
We believe the ability to manage and cope with stressful environments and situations stems from a mentally strong workforce. The key to maintain this mentally strong workforce is providing employees with the skills and knowledge to adopt a more resilient and tough mindset. This allows then to overcome stressful situations and increase their ability to cope with challenges while simultaneously improving productivity. By taking a psychological approach, this session provides employees with the skills and knowledge needed to respond to pressures that may lead to stress. Through learning these skills to cope better with stress, further benefits for your business will include better workplace communication, increased productivity, job satisfaction and employee confidence as well as reducing absenteeism and employee fatigue. By working alongside degree-qualified counsellors or registered psychologists, this program has been carefully constructed by professionals with vast experience in training. Participants will learn about the benefits and characteristics of resilience, analyse practical management models of internal and external reactions, discover theories behind energy allocation and will be taught key exercises for reducing stress. The flexibility of this seminar also means it can be delivered in-house at your convenience.

This session is a must in understanding and managing difficult customer behaviours and effectively dealing with and responding to challenging situations.

This program will provide employees with the ability to discover the common causes of such behaviour, teach them how to respond and de-escalate interactions as well as how to respond to mental health concerns, while maintaining their own safety and well-being.
