Some of us thrive on stress. Others of us only seem to. For some, we seek to avoid it at all costs.
Stress in projects is inevitable. Many projects are inherently ambiguous and uncertain, and all projects have some level of risk – which means that things might go wrong. Added to this we have the complexities of dealing with politics, tight deadlines and trying to manage unreasonable expectations. These are the critical ingredients that contribute to us experiencing stress.
For each of us, however, we experience stress in different ways. What we respond to as stress and how we respond to it is not consistent. For all of us, however, it does impact us – and we are often less aware of the impacts than we might like to think.
While we need to manage under stress, we need to make sure it doesn’t manage us. In this presentation, Mark Mullaly explores the subject of stress in a project environment, and how we can manage it more effectively.
