Stress affects all but the lucky few in the modern workplace – but most of us are unwilling to admit just how much. As such it remains the biggest elephant in the room, especially in highly competitive industries.
The physiological and psychological effects of stress can not only have a negative impact on our health but also erode our ability to think clearly and creatively and to act authentically. So in order for your business to thrive, you have ultimate responsibility for managing the levels of stress in your team. However, you can only do this if you have honestly addressed its impact on yourself first. Coaching can help you build resilience to and create strategies for coping with inevitable pressure, freeing you to think creatively and objectively in any situation.
