Stress Management Talk For KSCGP Juris LLP
I was warned prior to entering the room that it would be a very challenging task to squeeze all the participants in, especially considering the confines of the narrow room. Yet miraculously, despite all the chairs and all, we managed to start on time while packing the room to the brim. In fact, response was overwhelming and some of the participants spilled into the corridors outside.
From the moment I was greeted at the reception to the moment I was introduced to the participants, it truly felt like a gathering of old friends. Extremely comfortable would be the adjective I would use to describe how I felt inside. Forget about what others label as butterflies in the stomach, but I just felt so at ease.
Perhaps it’s got to do with the topic today which was stress management. But I have to give credit to all the ladies in the room who really made me feel at home.
Wearing their name tags with pride and smiling warmly, I felt inducted into the KSCGP Juris LLP family. With infectious laughter and active participation which any trainer could only dream of, the stress management talk took on a totally different meaning for these ladies. Indeed, if these ladies were stressed, then I think we really would have to redefine the definition of stress.
For an organization that holds weekly meditation classes for their staff, it’s remarkable what this has done to boost the morale and empower them with a sense of calmness not felt elsewhere. Bravo! It’s a law firm and yet people are happy…Truly remarkable! If only all organizations can learn how to make their employees feel more appreciated and less stressed, then the world will be a better place to work and live in.
Frankly, I really felt reluctant to leave after the talk but I had to as I had another meeting in town. If not for that, I would have loved to stay back to mingle. Maybe next time when they invite me back 🙂
