Mastery Course on Stress

Mastery Course on Stress

Equipping employees, leaders, and organizations with a nuanced understanding of what stress is to them and how to master it through self-awareness. 

The paradox of stress management  

Maybe you as an individual or organization find tackling stress akin to the Sisyphean myth, where putting a lot of effort and time merely leads you back to the beginning or even to a worse state. Then (unfortunately) you are not alone. 

Never have we googled, researched, or offered more courses on stress and how to manage it. Yet, never has the proportion of people reporting feeling stressed been higher. This apparent paradox raises the question: “What expertise is needed for reverting this trend?” 

Having now surveyed more than 50,000 employees and leaders across several industries and countries on how they experience meaning at work and explored the concept of meaningfulness and its relationship to stress for over seven years, Voluntās’ data points towards two answers: 

  • We need to nuance the discourse around stress   
  • We need to foster a culture of self-awareness    

This is exactly what we at Voluntās teach in our Stress Mastery Course and what we will dwell upon in our upcoming webinar.

The complexity of tackling stress 

When organizations today are called upon to tackle stress, they face an overwhelming challenge as it is, firstly, difficult knowing where even to begin, and, secondly, stress has become a victim of mainstream and uninformed notions about the concept. This situation leaves organizations vulnerable, and they end up going for a stress management strategy that is either too broad or too narrow, too collectively or individually oriented, and, more importantly, not tailor-made to their specific culture. 

To back this up, although people are inclined to regard stress as something bad that should be avoided, stress is an inevitable part of the culture in some of the most meaningful organizations we at Voluntās have worked with. Yet, the reverse also holds true in that: 


  • People reporting low levels of meaningfulness are five times more likely to experience unbearable stress. 
  • People reporting unbearable stress experience 12% less meaningfulness
