Working Under Pressure (WET06)

It happens to everyone: a delivery date changes, and you have a week’s less time to work. Or an unexpected extra workload arrives on your desk. When the clock is ticking and a deadline looms, it can feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Under pressure, some people panic or waste time, others produce poor-quality work.

The ability to stay calm, remain focused, and get into a productive state despite increasing pressure, is a valuable skill for individuals working alone or as members of a team. If you’ve prepared in advance and you have a few tools in your back pocket, even when it’s crunch time, your productivity will remain high and you’ll meet your deadlines.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Identify potential risks that arise when working under pressure
• Implement strategies to prepare for a pressurized work situation
• Apply tools and techniques to support you under pressure

Why take this course?

You may have found yourself choking when the pressure’s on, or regularly entering situations in which the final stages of a project become a scramble to the finish. This course will guide you through better strategies to prepare and valuable techniques to smooth the path to your goals.
