I’ve noticed you’ve been under pressure lately.
You suddenly notice that someone in your surroundings is clearly suffering from stress. Months in advance, you predict the burnout of a family member, friend, or colleague months... yet you choose to do nothing about it. Or you want to, but don't know how. This learning journey offers effective methods for addressing the stress of others and/or your own stress. Transparency is paramount. Telling someone what you see and how it affects you, starts a dialogue about stress. And you make sure the other person is aware of his or her stress level. Which flag should you raise? Green, orange, or red?

Imagine: you suspect that a friend, who you've been planning to go on a fun outing with, is overwhelmed by stress. The cozy getaway could easily turn out to be a fiasco. How can you – subtly – find out if your suspicion of too much stress is true?
How do you respond to stressed-out people in your environment? Often you don't dare say anything because you're afraid this will overburden him or her. It's natural to avoid, or shy away from, the anger or stress of another. But this won't make you feel any better. In fact, there's a big chance it'll cause you stress. In this course, rather than looking away, you'll address the stress and talk about it. You'll learn not only how to provide comfort, but also how to help others identify their own stress and anxiety symptoms. You can use the "raising flags" technique in conversations at work or at home with family, friends, and colleagues: wherever you are working or living with people. You assign someone a flag with a specific color. Transparency is vital to the success of this technique.
Everyone has experienced stress. Perhaps in your environment you're not used to talking openly about stress. You may feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, or embarrass others, when discussing work-related stress or burnout symptoms. In any event, take everything you can use from this course and see what fits your situation and your surroundings. You're in charge, so you decide!
