Relaxation techniques

Stress-reduction techniques must be applied according to the situation and the cause of your stress. In fact, we can distinguish two types of stress : long-term stress, caused by lifestyle and environment, and short-term stress, involved by special events or sudden anxiety.
Long-term stress reduction

Reducing long-term stress often implies a change in your lifestyle and organisation :
Very busy people are often subject to stress.
To keep control of your life, you need a good time management method : anticipate problems by planning your schedules, use the goal-setting method to improve and motivate yourself.
Try to work and live in the best environment possible (establish a pleasant personal space, reduce noise, air, keep everything clean enough)

If your job is stressful, try to have some peaceful moments out of work (reading, listening to music, walking…)
Your attitude in life has a great influence on your stress : always try to find the positive side of things (view mistakes as gaining exp…

Keep relaxed !

Calm can have different causes, depending on the person and their background.
External calming factors

They are often related to your environment.

Conditions such as long-term employment is a common example.

Internal calming factors

They are related to your character and psychology

Preventing stress at work

Limiting or avoiding stress in the workplace depends on the employee AND the employer : the employee can reduce their own stress, while the employer is able to eliminate stress factors in the workplace.As a worker, the most important thing is to have a good personal organization, which allows you to respect priorities and deadlines without anxiety problems. Always try to be positive : celeb…

Time management tools

Time management tools

Classical toolsClassical time management tools are the well-known organizers, calendars and other planning tools. A simple paper sheet is often sufficient, for example to apply all the techniques we talked about on this site
(activity log, setting goals, list of things to be done ).

Discover classic planning tools on Franklin Covey website!

Modern toolsHowever, technology can be very useful to plan and organize your life : palm pilots, electronic planners or organizers, are a good alternative to paper. Timesheets or calendars, goal-setting and project management tools... now a lot of software programs offer these features and often combine several tools to create useful time management solutions.


Of course, the first aim of every method of organisation is to save time... but it can even help you to create more time! Just apply the following principles as a basis for your own method of organisation...
Some simple rules to save time...
Try to respect your different energy levels while planning your schedules (determine these levels with an activity log )
Get the most out of your meetings : don't be late, keep attentive, take notes...
Avoid waiting time : confirm the day before and don't arrive too early.
Use waiting and travelling time : keep busy, you'll get your work done sooner!
Learn to read documents more efficiently : go to the essential, depending on what you're looking for.
Avoid procrastination by eliminating its causes : too much perfectionism, boredom, reluctance to perform a task... For example, don't hesitate to drop unnecessary tasks, which are not motivating enough.
Avoid distractions (phone calls, visits...)

... and some others to create more time!

Organizing time

According to the Pareto principle, 80% of our time is spent on 20% of our problems. Let's see how to use your time better!

How do you use your time?

Before organizing your time, you have to analyse the way you use it now. However, you have to do this very seriously : don't try to remember what you did in a week, it is definitely the best way to forget all the little things that make you lose so much time...
A good technique consists in using an activity log for several days, showing everything you did in one day (see our page about the activity log). This simple technique will help you to see the variations in your energy level during the day (to thus know at which moment(s) of the day you are the most effecient) and you will find out how much (too much!) time you are wasting time because of interruptions, distractions and procrastination... this is a first step toward organizing time better!

Setting goals and priorities

Now work out what you precisely want to achieve, and think a…

Priority management

Priority management

Priority management is a significant part of time management : it allows you to take control of your day by favouring important things instead of non-productive tasks. It will help you to improve your productivity and avoid stress caused by missed deadlines.

List of things to be done
Writing a list of things to be done is a first step in priority management : this is a simple but powerful tool to bring out what must be done everyday.
To make a list of things to be done, just write down all the tasks you would like to complete today. You should breakdown big tasks into several smaller ones. Getting that on paper (for example in your daytimer) will help you to see them more clearly. It will help you to focus on one task at a time and give you an idea of the total amount of work that ought to be done.

First things first!

Priority management is not only enumerating tasks but also sorting them out, according to deadlines and priorities. It is thus necessary to prioritize you…

Coaching for leaders

It is meant for the leaders who wish to benefit from a professional training, and consists in helping them to face confidently the various steps of their activity, such as making decisions or doing important oral exercises in their firm (meetings, interviews...). It also helps them take office, and encourages them to increase their relationship and communication potential. It guides them in order to improve their judgement and the efficiency required for their post.

It strengthens team spirit. In a recently set up team, coaching enables each member to find their own marks to raise collective productivity quickly. On the contrary, it reinforces an old team whose results and efficiency tend to decrease.

What is it?

Generally, the word "coaching" refers to the conditioning or training that an athlete performs, helped out by their coach.
However, it is not the only meaning we can assign to this term.
In fact, coaching also refers to the professional training given by consultants who have big experience of the corporate world, and whose goal is to enable everyone to increase their communication potential and their skill to determine solutions to their problems at work. It is also known as a "feedback-giving" activity.
Over the last decade, the coaching field has grown hugely, not only in firms but also next to the individuals who wonder about their professional prospects, and it is now regarded as the reference with respect to professional training.

The skills developed during the coaching sessions, such as communication, leadership, organization, relationship potential, but also self-confidence and perceptiveness in making decisions, are approached as the major assets fo…

An interview of Patrick Taranto by Christophe Caron, ESCEM for his searching thesis on expatriation.


MEDIA JD carries out missions of international recruitment to make it possible to the employers to recruit young graduates or trainees on the international market (and in particular on Europe). It also organizes formations and conferences on international recruitment.MEDIA JD acquired its reputation through the edition of guides of the first employment.
Customer category
The customers of Media JD are overall polycentric and geocentric companies, the ethnocentric ones proposing true statutes of expatriates for the tested frameworks. Their objective is of course to develop their market toward the international, a saturation of the national markets being able to be observed (in the case of the great distribution for example). In the companies of the ethnocentric type, the voluntary candidate for expatriation will have to wait long years be…
