- Building resilience
The negative consequences of stress have been shown to decrease where people are supported by managers who understand them, and where people have control and autonomy over their workload.

- Increased performance, better results
- Reduced distress and conflict, improved morale
- More effective use of time and resources
- Practical measures to remain resilient, even under pressure.
