Stress Profile© in Business
Psychological & Physiological screening tools for everyone
Specialized personality tests in the workplace
"No stress balls required."
Stress Profile© is a tool that monitors and counts each person's behaviour characteristics and habits, when combating stress comes into play. Using psychometric tools, we examine each participant's personality to find out his or hers personal limits against stress.
Utilizing special software and through the use of sensors and external devices, we take measurements in order to monitor the changes someone's body experiences when under stress (i.e. muscle spasm, sweat, heartbeat, breathing), while at the same time monitoring brain waves and specific activity on both hemispheres. The train of thought is also monitored, as well as behavioural patterns.
The procedure takes around 20 minutes, and the participants are tought how to:
Auto-adjust stress levels, through simple methods
Make themselves feel calmer by utilizing classic relaxation techniques
Take notice and recognize increased signs of stress
It's a small-duration, fast and friendly procedure, where participants get to experience and see in live time the changes that happen in their bodies when they get stressed. It's essentially a fully structured profile for anyone who is interested in discovering specific personality traits that expand both in the workplace and in their daily life.
What the Press has to say about Stress Profile
Stress Profile has multiple uses. It can be an employee valuation tool, a program to combat stress, or even as a guide to health prevention in the workforce.
