New Book Hot Off the Press

Journaling with Lynda allowed for quiet reflection (even in the midst of a large group) and took me to a place I haven't had the opportunity to visit for a long time.  It reminded me how important it is to get in touch with my thoughts through writing and offered a valuable perspective.  I hope to keep up my writing.  Thank you.

There are many factors that can lead to stress within a working group or team.  At the moment, many individuals are concerned regarding the economy – this worry and fear can become a stress and a common conversation among colleagues.  With recession talk prevalent, even if a person is not worried about a recession, they can also feel anxious being surrounded by the worry of others.  It is important to address team stress – regardless of the source of stress that team members might be experiencing individually or as a group.   Consider reducing tension with these ideas:  1)  Maintain a patient and positive tone of voice - a reassuring voice is a simple and effective way to help reduce stress; 2) Encourage optimism - those who are able to maintain an optimistic and hopeful outlook in the midst of adversity tend to be more resilient and they help others be resilient too; 3)  Focus on what feels right - during a staff meeting ask people for their suggestions regarding what makes a “great day”, reminding each other what the team needs to be happy at work.  

To less stress at work, Lynda
