In your journal this week you will be discussing your own experiences with job stress. You may also discuss the stress you have experienced from school related work. Please address the following in your entry:
- What are some of the stressors you experience at work?
- How do these stressors relate to the job stressors discussed in the text and lecture? For example, are the stressors you experience related to role ambiguity or conflict, quantitative or qualitative work overload, etc.?
- How did you resolve these stressors? Do you think these stressors caused short-term or long-term strain (TIP: look at the five step model of the job stress process)?
- What steps could organizations take to prevent the stress process from occurring?
- How can employees better deal with strains (e.g., stress management techniques)?
