Leaders Coping With Workplace Stress Using Interpersonal Skills
September 17, 2021
Coping with workplace stress is real and especially relevant for leaders today. Not only does on-the-job stress affect leaders, it also has cascading effects on those around them. Have you ever wondered why some leaders cope better with on-the-job stress than others? The answer may come from recent research which showed leaders using interpersonal skills to cope, without even knowing it or understanding how it helped. If leaders could intentionally utilize these skills through a program called Creating Cultures of Coping, the increasing workplace stress leaders experience may decline, affecting the whole organization in positive ways. Participants will gain knowledge about using these skills to help them cope with workplace stress.
