Stress is recognized as the most pervasive and potent toxin in the workplace. Recognize the symptoms: absenteeism, low morale, apathy, substance abuse, increased rates of illness and disability, workers comp claims, accidents, tardiness, leaving early, reduced productivity. If you are stressed, others are, too – it is infectious. Stress management is a leadership responsibility. Why not create a corporate climate that minimizes stress? An environment that is relaxed, participatory, that allows people space and territory. Adequate reward mechanisms, which focus on what has gone well. Realistic job content, hours, and working conditions. A flatter structure that minimizes bureaucracy, and gives people more control over their work. Programs that enhance health, fitness, nutrition, and balance. People will take their cue from you. Observe and adjust your attitude toward change, your management of time, the way you work with others, and how you maintain a balanced life.
