Key Targets

Embrace Change

As humans it is natural to resist change because change represents the unknown. Our ego does not like the unknown because it questions our ability to survive – therefore resisting change is our protection mechanism. However, resistant employees can sabotage the changes the organization wants to implement. Our training teaches employees to embrace the unknown. Once an employee realizes they can handle the unknown they are empowered to take personal responsibility and be part of the changes, making creative and innovative suggestions, helping your organization succeed.


Research shows that supporting employees with their mental health is not only the right thing to do but can also be one of the most profitable activities a business undertakes Willingness to invest in employee mental health helps staff to re-engage. The organization benefits from increased employee satisfaction and increased enthusiasm in their role – leading to overall company growth. This growth is measured in higher retention and lower turnover; higher productivity; increased profitability; less absenteeism, and increased employee loyalty. Investing in the Feel the Fear Training System sends a clear message to your employees, that you care about them as an employee and are also prioritizing their mental and emotional wellbeing. This training system isn’t just about teaching them how to do their job better; it is about empowering them to manage their stress.


Changes to roles and responsibilities within organizations can create uncertainty and fear. However, fears are incomplete views of what is actually happening – which can create office gossip. Sadly, fear-mongering like this can cost the organization time and money as they focus on people issues rather than the positive processes that are trying to drive change. Our training helps employees identify the fears triggered by change and allows employees to reality test their own fears through empowered action, such as having honest conversations or seeking out the true reality of what is really happening. Once the staff feels more empowered, they can then re-focus on the organisations goals and objectives.


The challenges of the modern workplace can cause staff to feel overwhelmed and disengage. When employees feel de-motivated this can affect morale, performance, and profits and failure to achieve their targets, Our training course addresses the reasons why they have disengaged and teaches staff how to take personal responsibility to commit to their role and responsibilities.


To run a successful business, leaders and employees need to be pulling in the same direction. However, in today’s competitive corporate society, challenges are part of the journey and it’s easy for employees to become overwhelmed leading to a culture of anxiety and fear. Our training course enables employees to overcome their anxieties and move forward confidently and successfully. This is achieved through owning and recognizing the nature of their doubts and fears.

Creativity and Innovation

When we are fearful of change, we become overwhelmed by anxiety and emotion. Rationale and logic disappear, and our work environment can become fraught with tension and anger. Our training system educates all employees on how to balance both their creative and innovative selves with more logical linear thinking, resulting in an employee who operates from a more balanced reality.

Take Responsibility

Taking responsibility for our behavior in the workplace is essential for our own personal development, and for the growth of the organization. Blaming others such as another department or other people in the organization, including management, means the focus is taken away from achieving the goals of the organization. Our training empowers employees to stop blaming and start owning. Once employees own their inaction or negative attitude, then they can choose to change their behavior, resulting in positive affirming results for all.

Handle Challenges

Employees, including team leaders, may fear they do not have the intellectual savvy and skills to make the right decisions at the right time. Fear of criticism, failure, and conflict can prevent decisions from being made, resulting in procedural stagnation, preventing the organization from moving forward. Our training equips employees with the courage to make decisions knowing they can handle the illusional fears in existence. Once an employee realizes they can handle their inner fears whilst remaining focused on the organization then productivity will occur.

Honest Conversations

Honest conversations are often needed in the workplace but are equally avoided. This is due to the individual having fears about the consequences of having such a conversation. Fears of not wanting to upset others, be seen as a bully or even not being liked by the other person can prevent these conversations from taking place. Our training teaches all employees how to have an honest conversation, which is kept positive, productive, and beneficial to all involved. This is achieved through each staff member taking responsibility for how they deliver the content of the conversation, ensuring a satisfactory outcome for all concerned.

Personal Development

Employees who have a positive home life bring their best self into the workplace, ensuring increased productivity and less absenteeism. The Feel the Fear Training System empowers individuals to make decisions that improve their life at work and at Our training teaches employees to understand how life experiences are causing their anxieties, and the actions needed to resolve these frustrations – leading to improved workplace performance and harmonious home life too.


Employees are individuals, meaning that they all have different value systems. It is therefore understandable that leaders struggle to know how to motivate all of their team members. Our training passes the responsibility of motivation to the individual since it not only allows the employee to name their reason for being de-motivated but also gives them permission to take action to resolve the frustrations, which are the root cause of the de-motivation.

Productivity and Performance

Employees facing company restructure or redundancy are troubled by anxiety and fear. Staff faced with uncertainty can easily become overwhelmed with emotion preventing productivity and performance. When staff are overwhelmed, they spend more time worrying about their survival, rather than completing their tasks. Teaching employees how to manage their worries, whilst still focusing on their role ensures your organization survives the changes the economy is demanding.

Supporting employees to tackle anxiety in the workplace is crucial for three key reasons:

By addressing anxiety in the workplace, companies can create a more productive, positive, and stable work environment, ultimately benefiting both employees and the organization as a whole.

Improved Productivity and Performance:

Enhanced Focus and Efficiency: When employees are anxious, their ability to concentrate and perform tasks efficiently is compromised. Addressing anxiety can lead to improved focus and better work performance

Reduced Absenteeism: Anxiety often leads to increased absenteeism due to mental health days or physical health issues exacerbated by stress. Supporting employees in managing anxiety can reduce absenteeism and ensure consistent productivity.

Positive Work Environment and Culture:

Increased Morale and Job Satisfaction: Employees who feel supported and understood by their employers are more likely to have higher job satisfaction and morale. This positive sentiment can spread, fostering a more supportive and cohesive work environment.

Enhanced Team Collaboration: When anxiety is reduced, employees are more likely to communicate effectively and collaborate well with their colleagues, leading to better teamwork and a more harmonious workplace culture.

Retention and Talent Attraction:

Employee Loyalty and Retention: Supporting employees’ mental health needs can increase their loyalty to the company. Employees are more likely to stay with an employer who prioritizes their well-being, reducing turnover rates and the associated costs of hiring and training new staff.

Attracting Top Talent: Companies known for their supportive and healthy work environments are more attractive to potential employees. This reputation can help attract top talent who are seeking employers that value mental health and well-being.

What do people say about this Managing Anxiety Workshop?

“Highly recommend this course as I attended it few weeks ago, hence felt I should spread the message. Sandra is amazing as she provides a hand-on learning experience. Worth your time & money. I had actually attended it to give company but got to self-reflect which felt therapeutic. ”

“This workshop highlighted that as creatures of habit, we often find ourselves stuck in unhealthy patterns. These patterns stem from our needs, values, and priorities. However, what worked for us in the past may not serve us in the present. Lack of awareness and inner connection can perpetuate these patterns, leading to unhealthy outcomes. It’s essential to cultivate mindfulness and self-awareness to break free from these cycles and lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.”
