Only 5 of the 100 managers Norway encounter stress at work as often or all the time, while just over a third (36.6%) felt this occasionally. Only one out of ten managers (11%) regularly or anytime encounter contradiction or conflict of roles between work and private life.
Managers that feel they can control the situation of his work and have the freedom to decide, subject to less stress on the job and feelings, and they are also less stress on the role of work than the managers do not have much control over it. These factors contributed most to the large volume of work and the stress of the job of a manager is the extent not predictable in companies and units they manage, along with a number of changes change was made in the course each year.
These relationships may help prevent stress
managers work under pressure showed high working efficiency and their effectiveness at high levels, according to a study suggests. This may be because they simply spend more time working.
It should be noted clearly that the manager will feel less stress when they feel have good relationships with their employees, and employees express a positive attitude and confidence in the manager.
“The best thing that people can do to manage stress prevention at work is to develop a good relationship with his subordinates at work”, Astrid M. Richardsen recommended. Richardsen also believe that employees will feel happy that your boss is someone who knows and understands the difficulties listening from his staff, and then the manager will feel less stressed. This may be because the manager believes in staff more and more work assigned to them. So work pressure will drop.
Four common factors causing stress
The stress can come from many sources. Here are four factors that cause stress are that:
• The stress may be related to factors at work (eg the work requirements that managers face).
• Stress can be caused by the manager’s response to a specific work situations (eg worried about how people react, feel tired or exhausted).
• The tension may be about how to tackle the challenging tasks or fatigue (eg: work harder, work overtime, giving the home).
• Conflict in the balance between time spent in work and time spent on self, family.
According to the researchers, the stress can affect agencies and organizations in the form of eg reduced productivity and business results worsen. Awareness of the large workload and the stress of the role can reduce loyalty manager for the organization, making them depressed will likely lead to find new jobs elsewhere.
