Stress: The Silent Stakeholder
Network:9920



Stress is a silent killer and sometimes called a killer without a face (DrLam Cooaching, 2018).

If stress can have a very negative effect on the body, it surely can have a negative effect on the project. If PM's allows this team member to take control, your project could be impacted.

There are two types of stress, the positive and the negative one. You want to control both, if either come out of PM hands, it can silently crash your project.

Stress is usually a sign something is wrong with a project that needs to be fixed. Even on projects involving a lot of work one shouldn't feel stress.

Morten Emil Berg & Jan Terje Karlsen wrote of Managing Stress in Projects Using Coaching Leadership Tools.

Abstract: The work of engineering project managers can be perceived as demanding, challenging, difficult, and stressful. Engineering project managers have to interact with new colleagues, the project framework is unclear, the context of the project is often unknown, and they have to deal with time pressure. The purpose of this article is to study coaching and the use of several leadership tools as effective stress-coping strategies. A case study from Norway is presented based on interviews with two project managers. Results show that positive self-talk, visualization, clear goals, feedback, the ABCDE method, empowerment, and resilience are tools that project managers find valuable and effective to reduce and cope with stress.
