Prevention in the Workplace

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The path to preventing addiction
Prevention of addiction is a particular concern of the Grüner Kreis. The department for addiction prevention develops individually tailored, preventative concepts for public and private companies, in order to help where the preliminary stage of the path to addiction can be averted.
Many companies wish to support members of staff who have an addiction problem. Colleagues or superiors often have feelings of powerlessness and helplessness in dealing with those affected.

We help and support
We devise addiction-prevention measures to sensitise staff and show strategies for a constructive approach to addiction problems. The repertoire in this area is diverse and individual at the same time, adjusted to the difficulties and requirements of the respective company and its staff.

We offer

  • Se­mi­na­rs on the foundations of addiction and addiction prevention
  • Out­door work­shops
  • Special offers in the fields of personality development, dealing with stress, communication, and conflict strategies
  • Team­-building measures


A solution with the right “tool”
Our work-related addiction prevention helps to get learning processes going. It aims to sharpen perception in order to facilitate early recognition of the risks of illness, and to assist in developing meaningful internal company solutions. Against this background, the acquisition of knowledge and competence for action, the training of apprentices, members of staff and managers are decisive measures.
Here it concerts providing the necessary “tools” for the correct approach to people as the occasion demands, for the consistent offer of assistance and for an improvement in management behaviour.
