Stress in the workplace!
Dealing with stress. Stress balls, love em! Something to do with your hands will often switch off your brain, just enough to work through. Best way to overcome stress is to know what is happening. What is the trigger for that stress? Can you remove that trigger?
I think outside of the office this it may be easier to remove this trigger. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are lots of stresses outside the office that can cause you grief, and sometimes those triggers cannot be stopped. But normally at work, for example if the stress is caused by deadlines, and you’re in a deadline driven environment, well that stress isn’t going to go away easy.
So, let’s just look at the deadline situation for a moment. I worked in an environment where there were multiple deadlines every day and they all had to be met. The best way to deal with that was to ensure I was doing everything I could to make sure that we didn’t hit that deadline. When you see a deadline, imagine finishing it an hour before, or a day before. Already you have yourself in a better mindset to get things sorted. I remember being at school and having assignments to do. I’d leave them not done, like most teenagers, but instead of starting on the project, the night before, like most of my mates. I started two nights before. That way I had a little contingency should things go pear shaped, but I still did it in the night.
Don’t Ignore Stress
The worst thing you can do about stress is to ignore it. I used to worry in the night about things at work and what I could do about them. I decided to put a pen/paper beside my bed (nowadays it’s the ipad). So if something came to me in the night, well I just wrote it down and knew I would be sweet in the morning, and it allowed me to easily fall back to sleep. Even if I didn’t have the solution, jotting down things that were bothering me just seemed to help. Although sometimes, I couldn’t read what I had written the next day, so I put it down to, it mustn’t have been that important anyway.
Keeping calm and under control as a manager can get pretty tricky. I have been very lucky in my career, that I had managers who I could let off steam with. Having someone in your life that you can do this with is important. In many workplaces swearing is “out”. I know of workplaces where if you swore, you would receive a letter of warning, and others where the “f” bom was used as an adjective in almost all sentences.
So what do you do as a manger. Someone is just pushing your buttons and you just want to explode….WELL DON’T! This is a great leveller for some people, because now all of a sudden you’re not a boss, your just some joker who can’t hold their temper.

Document document document
How can you keep great documentation? Yes I know, tricky. I used three different methods. I used a simple spiral notebook to keep notes of appointments and meeting. I had a password protected word document used for all HR, staff or personal issues and on my desktop I would have a “to do” list.
