There are two main reasons we do what we do: The first, because our passion is to see people away from any kind of conflict, happy and enjoying life. The second, because we know by achieving the above we can make your business, the business you are passionate about, more successful than it currently is. Our passion and yours teamed up, make for a winning combination.

We don’t get taught how to deal with conflict, stress and anxiety at school. Unless our primary care givers were given this type of education by their primary care givers or from school, they don’t know how to pass it on to us.

We often bumble through life coping, thinking it will go away, and thinking that if we ignore the emotions we are feeling that they will vanish.

They don’t. They sit quietly until we have so much unprocessed emotion that we begin to falter. Imagine a PC that has too many pages open, it will eventually freeze and that is what we do, we fail to function or we don`t function as well as we could.

We can recognise if we get to this point because some of the following may happen:

  • We become more emotional
  • We begin to forget things
  • We become snappy
  • Mood is low
  • Anxiety is high, we develop more nerves than usual
  • We become tired with low energy
  • Our mood doesn’t really match our good fortune
  • We struggle to see positives


Management Standards

The Management Standards cover six key areas of work design that, if not properly managed, are associated with poor health and well-being, lower productivity and increased sickness absence. In other words, the six Management Standards cover the primary sources of stress at work. These are:

Demands – this includes issues such as workload, work patterns and the work environment.

Control – how much say the person has in the way they do their work.

Support – this includes the encouragement, sponsorship and resources provided by the organisation, line management and colleagues.

Relationships – this includes promoting positive working to avoid conflict and dealing with unacceptable behaviour.

Role – whether people understand their role within the organisation and whether the organisation ensures that they do not have conflicting roles.

Change – how organisational change (large or small) is managed and communicated in the organisation.

The Management Standards represent a set of conditions that, if present, reflect a high level of health well-being and organisational performance.

The Management Standards:

  • Demonstrate good practice through a step by step risk assessment approach;
  • Allow assessment of the current situation using surveys and other techniques;
  • Promote active discussion and working in partnership with employees to help decide on practical improvements that can be made.

Help simplify risk assessment for work related stress by:

  • Identifying the main risk factors for work-related stress;
  • Helping employers focus on the underlying causes and their prevention;
  • Providing a yardstick by which organisations can gauge their performance in tackling the key causes of stress.
