As a leader, you set the tone for the team, department and organization. Under stress you may appear and act differently than you intend. This impacts you and your team significantly. The “5 Steps to Reducing Stress” can help.

I received a call from a very stressed-out young lady. She had just started a new job and was feeling more than a little overwhelmed. She asked me if I would help. She was a new supervisor, eager to succeed, and she knew that as a new leader, she might fall victim to the common mistakes new leaders make. She did not. What she did face, however, was stress – stress in the staff, stress in her own supervisor and of course, stress in herself.
