    Tips for Handling Your Stress While Studying

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Is your PMP exam looming on the horizon? If so, you may be experiencing more stress than normal. Having anxiety about your upcoming test is normal, but it’s important to not let your worries get in the way of your PMP exam prep. Anxiety can unravel your efforts to be well prepared on exam day, so keep in mind the following tips for successful stress management:

    Learn with a Friend

    If you happen to know someone else who is also undergoing PMP training, you can study together. Even if you don’t have a project management training partner, you can still enlist a friend to help you through your long study sessions. Studies have found that spending time with friends can lower stress levels. Also, having a friend close by can help thwart moments of anxiety. Instead of letting you worry over your future test outcome, a friend can make you laugh and forget your stress.

    Take a Break

    Whether you study with a friend, in a group, or on your own, don’t forget to put your books down every once in a while. Extended study sessions may result in diminishing learning returns, so schedule periodic breaks to ease your mind. Since studying typically requires long bouts of sitting, be sure to get in some exercise to break up your inactivity.

    Compartmentalize Your Materials

    Telling yourself that you need to memorize an entire PMP textbook is likely to increase your stress levels. Committing yourself to learning a chapter a week is much more manageable. By dividing your work into reasonable increments, you will soon have your materials mastered and be ready for your PMP exam.

    Velociteach wants you to achieve the highest levels of vocational success. That’s why our PMP training services provide the most comprehensive study options for students.

    Essential Traits of a Business Leader

    Last updated 8 months ago

    If you’re interested in undergoing project management training to become a better leader, you should understand what that goal truly entails. Being the person to which your employees and coworkers turn for inspiration, knowledge, and leadership requires more than simply knowing the practical needs of project management; it also demands that you learn those intangible qualities that can set you apart from others in your position.

    Communicate Effectively

    You cannot be a successful business leader if you do not know how to communicate with those around you. Clear and effective communication requires far more than simply telling your employees what to do; it involves listening as much as talking. Good communication may also mean the difference between happy employees and disgruntled ones. When in a position of leadership, one of the greatest challenges is distinguishing between what people mean from what they say. This skill can serve you well in project management.

    Demonstrate Reliability

    Being a leader means having people willing to follow you. If you do not prove yourself to be a reliable person, you may find your employees less than accommodating to your strategies and workplace needs. Cultivating reliability typically falls back on what you say and do. For instance, when you make a promise, keep it. By becoming a person who others can look up to, you can rely on their loyalty and hard work.

    Dedicate Yourself to Success

    You must be the person who encourages others to achieve. As a leader, it’s your job to keep your employees motivated on days both good and bad. The best way to secure their unwavering devotion is to be passionate yourself. When you make a standing commitment to being the best at what you do, you are more likely to become the example off which others model their own behavior.

    Velociteach of Atlanta can help you realize your business leadership dreams. Our PMP boot camp classes will get you ready for your PMP test in a matter of days. To learn more about our PMP exam prep options, call (888) 568-2527.
