The Science of Stress

by | Apr 8, 2020

A crisis may leave us feeling almost paralyzed. And our stress levels rise. Recent study of stress teaches us that there is a way to move past that immobilizing feeling, to restart our belief system that our behavior can make a difference.

Shawn Achor performed innovative research that shows we can help people use their stress to an advantage, by understanding that their stress has meaning. And it is what we do with that meaning that makes the positive difference.

After watching the video, read the article below, a Harvard Business Review summary of the research conducted by Alia Crum, Peter Salovey and Shawn Achor to explore the idea of Stress Mindset. While reading, think about how you can apply this innovative thinking to the stress your employees may be feeling from the current coronavirus crisis.
