Don’t power through – Power up!

Don’t power through – Power up!

There are typically two ways people try to deal with stress at work. One is to simply ‘head down and power through’ — to focus on getting the stressful work done.

Leaders often have ‘action orientated mindset’ and want to find a solution quickly and can keep working despite feeling stressed and fatigued.

The other common behaviour is to retreat — to temporarily disconnect from work and get away from the stressful environment, go off sick or avoid the stressful work.

A third, more productive way is to focus on learning. Small bitesize learning to power up a new skill and gathering new information. Psychologically, taking time to reflect on what we know and learn new things helps us develop feeling of achievement and self-esteem.

Learning also helps connect us to an underlying purpose of growth and development.
