Managing Stress in Others

Stress can be defined as demands on physical, mental and emotional energies. Such demands can be normal or exceptional, and are experienced both at home and at work. People who consider that stress is both inevitable and helpful are partially correct. Reasonable levels of stress at work are necessary for people to perform well, while low levels of stress can lead people to become demotivated and lethargic. Excessive stress levels, however, are not acceptable, and seem to have a cumulatively harmful effect on people.


As a manager you are responsible for monitoring your own stress levels and those of the people who work for you. You should be aware of how your style of management and personal behaviour patterns could cause stress to others, or give them a poor example of stress management. Your role is central in acting as a buffer for your team, giving them support, and helping them to manage and cope with work and other life pressures
