Stress is a major factor in most of our lives today. It can involve an individual’s job, organization, family
environment or community.
Think of a stressor in your life – describe the factor or situation and think about how it can be
reduced. Indicate if the steps within the plan; will all steps be addressed by you alone or would help a
co-workers, management or your organization help you? Consider the larger picture of stress
management in the workplace. How important is it that organizations help employees manage stress?

related to the workplace itself?
