Stress Awareness for Managers

Every employee, and manager, who has varying degrees of responsibility will at some point in their working lives experience situations that put them under pressure. These situations may be sporadic or sustained. How proactively the individual and organisation identifies and deals with potential areas of pressure and minimizes the effect will determine the level of stress incurred and ultimately the health of the individual and the organisation.
