Different reasons for stress
Lack of well-being and stress are familiar issues in many companies and organisations. Causes can vary greatly and may be due to personal or work-related challenges, or a combination.
Stress is not an illness as such, but it can make you ill and cause you to take time off work. Stress is a condition that is caused by pressure and it can occur when people experience imbalance between demands and resources, relationships and values. It can arise abruptly and be short-lived. It can also be chronic.
Well-being creates results
Well-being and performance are closely linked to good and clear leadership. There is no doubt that people who thrive achieve the best results, are less sick and find it easier to navigate when they meet challenges and changes.
Well-being and stress are complex issues. Therefore, it is essential that both manager, colleagues and the person affected by a stress/failure to thrive are aware of the danger signs and make their own active efforts to get to grips with the problem.
