Spot on
I would recommend this course to anyone who finds themselves worn out with 'coping' at work. Although I thought I had insight into what drives my stress reactions, Shona's Resilience dashboard has given me new ways to tackle my anxiety levels and my new understanding of my personal stress drivers is also helping me keep calm and carry on.
I would recommend this course to anyone
