Chloe Pillans Rapid Stress Reduction workshops, although designed for business persons, anyone who experiences day to day stress will benefit and get results. Chloe has sculpted her RSR workshop using enterprising, hypnotic methods of active imagination. Cultivating dual hemispheric communication of the brain, necessary for higher order cognitive processes.    

Stress in the workplace costs the Australian economy $14.81 billion a year. Not to mention; the costs of staff turnover which is estimated to be $3.8 billion in lost productivity annually.

In 2013, Safe Work Australia released a comprehensive report detailing the prevalence and impact of work-related mental stress claims in Australia. The report found that, due to the long periods of absence from work, mental stress claims are the most expensive type of workers’ compensation claim, with the majority occurring as a result of ‘work pressure’.

The dynamic nature of the modern workplace means that individuals, and the organisations they work for, are exposed more than ever to the challenges of work-related stress. But, while most of us understand the effects of stress on individual wellbeing, its consequence at an organisational level is barely understood.

In fact, we’re only starting to totally understand the economic repercussions of workplace stress and how building resilience can improve the bottom line.

In addressing this issue in 2015, former chairman of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) Professor Allan Fels, said: “Poor resilience is more significant for our economy than tax and micro-economic reforms.”

With this in mind, it’s essential that individuals learn how to develop and build resilience in their workplace. What is resilience and why are some people more resilient than others?

Resilience is:

The capacity to handle life’s ups and downs, to bounce back from challenges, obstacles and trauma. Individual people will have varying levels of resilience, but the amount we have, often depends on how much stress we’re exposed to and our own unique coping abilities.

Having higher levels of resilience allows a person to recover more quickly from stressful situations.

Employees with lower levels of resilience within organisations are more likely to experience:

  • reduced productivity and efficiency

  • lower job satisfaction, morale and cohesion

  • worker burnout

  • increased absenteeism

  • lower client satisfaction

  • Increased health care expenditure and workers’ compensation claims.

The economic impact of poor resilience and high levels of work-related mental stress claims means there’s a strong business case for enhancing workplace resilience.

ASSOC Professor Sam Harvey, a psychiatrist at Black Dog Institute, has studied the impact of building resilience and states; “Enhancing resilience removes the notion that employees are passive recipients of workplace stress without anything they can do about it." This serves as a positive reminder that resilience is a dynamic skill that can be learned.

By arming individuals with the right psychological skills, strategies and resources, they are better equipped to tackle the challenging situations they encounter and take them in their stride. Individuals will experience higher levels of engagement, better health, and improved morale. Translating to decreased levels of absenteeism and internal staff turnover. This enables higher levels of profitability, innovation, productivity and customer loyalty.

RSR is a 2 hour workshop that includes a one hour informative presentation on the functions of the mind. The power of belief, suggestions and the imagination. 

Chloe will discuss how you can program your mind to produce desired behaviour using NLP techniques and self hypnosis.

After the presentation Chloe will guide you through some gentle stretching exercises to loosen up before beginning breath-work methods. Conscious breathing is a necessary component of RSR, it activates the body's relaxation response which reduces blood pressure, improves cardio vascular health as well as aiding digestion and general immunity which becomes impaired by stress. 

Chloe will end the workshop by guiding you through different levels of awareness using verbal suggestions specifically designed to encourage deep relaxation whilst building mental and emotional balance and resilience. Think of RSR as an exercise for your mind. Training it to produce the results that you want, so you can have the ultimate display of control.

You will also receive take home material to concretise the RSR benefits with easy at home exercises. 

Chloe also offers individual one on one sessions, as well as corporate 1 hour RSR sessions for companies and organisations.
