Emerging Leaders Workshops and Webcasts

PROGRAMS FOR SPRING 2015:

Every Day Stress and Its Management

Guest Speaker: Brother Sean Sammon, FMS '70, Member, Marist College Board of Trustees

Date: Monday, February 9, 2015
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Location: Student Center, Room 3101

Most of us associate stress with final exams, a death in the family, the breakup of a relationship or some other striking event. Each day, however, we face periods of stress of which we might not even be aware. This workshop will define stress, describe the short and long-term toll it can take on each of us, our ability to give our best effort, our relationships, experience of faith, and sense of self-worth. More importantly, the workshop will offer some practical advice as to how to deal with stress: personally, interpersonally, and organizationally.
