Stress in the work place:
Don’t let the stress of the job get you down. Learn to manage stress, to cope with stressful situations that may arise in your life. Stress in the work place is increasing at an alarming rate,which arises when the demands and expectations on a person exceeds their capacity to meet the expectations. Some stressful situations in the work-place may involve an intimate working relationship, lack of control. Stress leads to emotional and psychological, physical, distorted cognitive thinking and fatigue, lack of job satisfaction, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, irritability, bullying and harassment. Stress is on everyone’s mind these days. However, whilst almost everyone seems to feel “stressed”, most people are unaware that stress comes in two forms – positive and negative.
Positive stress: is the result of good management and excellent leadership, where everyone works hard, is kept informed and involved, and – more importantly – is valued and supported. People then feel more in control of their lives.
Negative stress: is the result of a bullying climate where threats and coercion substitute for non-existent management skills. When people use the word “stress” on its own, they usually mean “negative stress”.
Bullying ‘The Silent Epidemic’ : Work place bullying is continued and deliberate unfair, unjust or abusive treatment / aggression of an individual at work by one or more co-workers, supervisors, managers or customers. Bullying leads to increased stress, accidents, low motivation, making mistakes, loss of confidence, low self – esteem which leads to illness and increased absenteeism.
