Stress and anxiety in the workplace is becoming more commonplace, but potentially even more increasingly ignored.
In our evolving 'always on' work culture where the lines between work and life become more porous, it is important to be able to listen to signals that denote rising stress levels.
Make sure you explore with your team how levels of increasing stress might manifest for them - and, potentially, more importantly, identify them in yourself as well to prevent burn out!
Stress is a natural reaction that occurs for one of two reasons. Either we feel like something we really care about, such as an important project or relationship, is under threat. Or we feel like the demands on our time or skills are exceeding our ability to cope.
