Stress and anxiety are an indispensable side effect of our professional and personal lives. Almost no one is exempt from these. It is estimated that 20% of the people experience a mental health issue at some point of time in their lives. About a sixth of employees take off from work or school to deal with a mental health issue. If stress levels are such that they have consequences of such a profound nature, isn’t it time to do something about it?

Anger, irritability and anxiety are but a few manifestations of stress. Stress is a fact of life, and nothing can be done about it. But we certainly can change the way we look at it and handle it. It requires resilience, focus and support. This webinar will explain how to attain all these using the S-O-S method. This method is aimed at helping people harnessing their energies and become resilient, which will help cope with bad situations.

Difference Between Mentor Coach and Manager in Motivating Employees to High Performance


Executives, Leaders, Managers, HR, and those in Operations, Marketing, Engineering, Accounting and other technical departments often tend to think of coaching and mentoring as being one and the same. These personnel are often confused about the nature of these two, which are not the same as each other.

Many employees need to be coached, while some other need to be mentored. It is necessary for managers to not only understand the difference between the two, but to also know how to apply these two approaches and effectively use each style to improve employee engagement. Understanding the two in their entirety is the basis for managers who want to retain employees and increase what is called their “social capital” and reputation as leaders and managers.

Managers that work effectively and make a difference to the organization and the people around them rely upon many skills and draw from them to lead their teams. For managers to become effective and successful, it is important to know when to use mentoring and when to use coaching to improve employee engagement and give constructive feedback.

A webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, will explain this crucial difference and how to apply which of these under which situation. Valerie Pelan, President of Integrated Focus, will be the expert at this webinar.
