How Stress Resilience Helps Performance

Stress resilience

Can stress resilience help performance? We already know that stress can have a negative impact on performance in a number of ways:

Negative impact of stress

  • Poor decision making
  • More errors made
  • Increase in irritability and therefore conflict
  • Impact on teamwork
  • Increase in absenteeism and presenteeism
  • Negative effect on customer satisfaction
  • Risk of burnout or breakdown of your most valuable resource

All create a negative domino effect.

How stress resilience helps performance

The bottom line cannot flourish in such conditions.  So stress resilience – the ability to deal with and even transcend negative stress – has got to help:

  • Effective decision making
  • Fewer errors and more efficient recovery from any errors made
  • Increased capacity to positively influence, even in contentious situations
  • Less reactivity and more responsiveness through an ability to see and work towards the big picture
  • Healthier and more engaged, productive workforce
  • Happier customers
  • Healthier profits

A strategic advantage

But we are not machines and life – or business – is not predictable.  So, the ability to be stress resilient is a  strategic advantage.  It doesn’t happen on it’s own though and it’s often misunderstood.  That’s why I am running a Stress Resilience workshop on the 3rd April.  Essential if you feel you are hitting a brick wall more often than you’d like and need a way through.
