Question of the Week: Stress and the Workplace
When I looked at my website stats last week, I took special note of the search terms used to help people find my site. One in particular caught my attention.
Is there a place for stress in the workplace?
With so much talk about workplace stress, it seems we’re always trying to get rid of workplace stress. I know when I present my stress management workshops I do discuss the “positive” side of stress, because in truth there is an upside! There is no such thing as “stress free”, however, there are methods you can practice to help use stress in a more useful way. Or as I like to say “turn stress into success”.
So, as you think about your work environment, whether you are a sole proprietor, freelancer or work for a larger entity, what do you think?
Is there a place for stress in the workplace? And what might that look like?
