Human Function Curve
The Human Function Curve helps us identify if we are stressed or stretched.
When we are stretched, we may be facing challenges, but we feel confident that we can deal with them. This could include leading a big project at work, or going through a company restructure. Stretch helps us meet many of our needs, most notably Achievement, and Meaning & Purpose.
If we are over-stretched, i.e. when we feel we have taken on too much, this can lead to stress, which in turn can lead to burn out.
The opposite of burn out is rust out – when we are not challenged enough, and therefore feel we are not achieving something in our lives.
The Mental Health Toolkit is here to help you and your team deal with stress. Our interactive Stress Management workshop increases awareness of stress within the workplace and how it can affect the daily lives of your team.
If you’d like to find out how our qualified trainers can equip you with practical tools to support them, while helping to reduce the cost of stress-related absence, please contact our team.
To help you handle conversations around workplace wellbeing sensitively and with confidence, The Mental Health Toolkit equips you with a powerful communication tool we use called RIGAAR. This framework was developed by the co-founders of Human Givens, and all our trainers are Human Givens practitioners.
RIGAAR represents the elements needed for a supportive conversation with someone experiencing mental health challenges. The acronym stands for:
- Rapport building
- Information gathering
- Goal setting
- Accessing resources
- Agreeing strategies
- Rehearsing success
