We all feel stress about our work from time to time. It’s normal (and even healthy) to feel stress occasionally at work during a particularly busy time or in anticipation of an important upcoming event. But if we’re constantly experiencing stress at work, we will eventually burn out.
As a manager, you can help create an environment where stress and burnout aren’t the norm. Stress can be contagious, so work to manage your own stress to avoid negatively impacting your team. Once you feel in control of your own stress level, proactively work to manage stressors that could be dragging down your team (such as a number of changes all happening in the same month).
