Coaches come in all shapes and sizes, they have different styles, processes and experience. Many are trained or accredited others are experienced in life/business but with no formal training. Some cost the earth and some seem too cheap to be any good.. 
Picture the scene if you will -. A Saturday afternoon in Oxford with a little retail therapy, I walked past a well know high street chocolate shop, known for its good quality chocolate. 
I advanced towards the chocolate counter, eyeing up the choices from which I could choose. However, because of the relaxed mood I was in, I couldn’t make a quick decision on my purchase…so blow it I thought and I asked the very pleasant lady behind the counter to give me two of each chocolate she had on display in a bag please…then I asked if she could repeat this order so that I could share with these with friends. 
So here we are, the last month of 2017 and the stress of Christmas and New Year to be with us soon. We thought it would be a good time to look at stress, its causes and our reactions to it. 
A favourite definition of stress here at The Business-Box is that “Stress occurs when someone thinks that the demands on them exceed the personal and social resources that the individual is able to mobilise.” (Richard S. Lazarus). 
Our reason for this is it places stress and the ability to manage it straight back within our control.
