Compassionate Ways for Managers to reduce stress in their teams

Compassionate Ways for Managers to reduce stress in their teams

A note for managers who are used to delivering results in measured numbers: This may require a shift in mindset toward another kind of success metric, but surviving, healing, and being seen are important parts of being human right now.

Humanize deadlines and evaluations

Do your people have dependents: children or parents or neighbors or friends or … anyone? Do they have obligations outside of work? Are they a human? Do they read the news? Whatever a person’s situation, it’s stressful simply being alive right now. 

The human who depends on you in some shape or form could use a break. A break from expectation and scrutiny, from deadlines and pressure. And you can give it to them. So you should.

Take the heat

Every manager has some level of autonomy, and that is a power dynamic that can trickle down to your team. If you can take the heat for someone, do it.

Let them miss the meeting. Let them show up late. Let them step out early. Let them take an afternoon to get groceries.

Plan from abundance

Make decisions around your team from a place of abundance. There is not a finite amount of kindness, care, creativity, or even power.

What do you have as a manager that your team does not? Power to make decisions. Autonomy to arrange your schedule. Access to other people with those things. If we can give from the sources that make us strong, we lower the ladder and give others strength, too. Encourage connections and the sharing of strengths and resources between your team members rather than division or unnecessary competition.

Let them cope the way they need

Your job as a manager is to help people get out of their own way. Sometimes folks need to dive into their work, and sometimes folks need to step away. If your manager isn’t giving you the same reprieve? be the buffer. That’s the job.

Ask for what you need

The truth is, most people don’t know what you need without you telling them. It’s important to bear this in mind for both your reports and yourself. 

When we achieve something for ourselves as leaders it trickles through the organization as the realization of accommodations we didn’t know were possible for everyone.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
