Lincoln professor shows how to reduce stress


A University of Lincoln professor recently addressed a national conference for business leaders held in Birmingham.


Professor of Direction and Leadership Colin Coulson-Thomas addressed leaders in organisations at the Thought Leaders Event. The talk aimed to encourage leaders to consider the role they can take in reducing people’s stress in the workplace.


The event was organised by Investors in People UK for chief executives and human resources directors.


Professor Coulson-Thomas spoke about how the jobs of front line staff can be made less stressful.


He said: “Delegates shared the findings of national research on the needs for people to be properly supported. I was able to show how practical support tools based upon the principals of my research can reduce stress by making it easier for people to do difficult jobs.”


Professor Coulson-Thomas is an experienced chairman of award winning companies, and the author of Winning Companies: Winning People (Policy Publications, 2007). He has reviewed the processes and practices of more than 100 companies, helped more than 100 boards to improve board or corporate performance, and spoken at more than 200 national, international and corporate conferences in 35 countries.
