Many people are ill-equipped to deal with modern-day stressors, causing them to react as though they are being attacked. In Coaching for Resilience, Adrienne Green and John Humphrey use the principles of positive psychology to show coaches, trainers and managers how to motivate and inspire people to build greater resilience to pressure. They present seven key strategies for managing stress that are based around the awareness and understanding of the two psychological drivers that underlie all stress. With practical exercises and examples, this comprehensive resource offers an effective way to deal with stress that will enhance personal and work-related performance.
