Stress Management for business owners


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - The Kirkwood Small Business Development Center, Cedar Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce and Project Recovery Iowa together will host a stress-management presentation on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. at the Clark Alumni House on the Coe College Campus.

The presentation targets small business owners who were affected, either directly or indirectly, by the flood in June of 2008. On top of helping the community rebuild, local business owners have had the added stress of rebuilding their own businesses or otherwise keeping them intact. The ability to manage stress of owners and employees in the workplace can make the difference between success and failure.

The presentation will cover recognizing the signs and symptoms of stress in the work environment and how to deal with it effectively. It will also give businesses a chance to meet and network with other business owners in the area who are in the rebuilding/recovering phase. 

Representatives from Project Recovery Iowa will be on hand after the presentation to answer any questions about stress management in the workplace as well as provide assistance to small business owners, if needed.

The event is free of charge for small business owners and a light dinner will be provided.  A reservation is required. Call the Kirkwood Small Business Development Center at (319)398-5623 to reserve a space.

Online Producer: Jason Mortvedt
