Contents Notes
Expect somebody else to reduce your stress -- Decide not to change -- Act like a victim -- Try to play a new game by the old rules -- Shoot for a low-stress work setting -- Try to control the uncontrollable -- Choose your own pace of change -- Fail to abandon the expendable -- Slow down -- Be afraid of the future -- Pick the wrong battles -- Psychologically unplug from your job -- Avoid new assignments -- Try to eliminate uncertainty and instability -- Assume "caring mangement" should keep you comfortable. A Survival Guide to the Stress of Organizational Change shows employees how they can avoid 15 basic mistakes that create major stress in the workplace. If your organization is changing (and whose isn't?) you can bet that many of your people are reacting in ways that are dead wrong. The result is unnecessary job stress, and unnecessary costs that damage your bottom line. This easy-to-read handbook explains the sources of stress and provides practical, usable tips for reducing stress like: stop expecting somebody else to reduce your stress; use humor to lighten your emotional load; develop better time management habits; don't try to control the uncontrollable.
