Phenomenon of workplace stress
3
Occupational stress as a “global epidemic”
- UN International Labor Organization
3 of 4 workers are on the brink of meltdown
due to high stress
-Fairleigh Dickinson University
• 40% of workers reported their job was
very or extremely stressful - NIOSH
• 25% view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives
- NIOSH
• over half of the 550 million working days lost annually in the U.S. from
absenteeism are stress related
- European Agency for Health & Safety at Work
Stress mechanism (Psychological)
4
• What causes stress?
The conditions that trigger
a physical reaction from our brains
can be summarized as the acronym:
NUTS:
• Novel
• Unpredictable
• Threatening
If a situation is novel, unpredictable, or threatens either your survival
or your ego, and which you don’t feel you have a sense of control
over, the brain will start to release stress hormones.
Relaxation response
5
The counterbalancing mechanism to the stress response is the
relaxation response, of the parasympathetic nervous system.
• a physical state of deep rest that
changes the physical and
emotional responses to stress
(H. Benson)
• when you elicit the relaxation
response, heart rate, blood
pressure, and muscle tension
decrease.
However, given the reality of the majority of workplaces still operating
in the old fashion, one way to reduce stress is a "relaxation response".
as an "aspirin" to the fever: it certainly helps but it doesn't alter the
causes of the fever.
The quest for well-being and creativity
6
Some stress hormones continue to be produced until the
relaxation response is elicited because the sympathetic nervous
system dominates the parasympathetic nervous system.
Thus, it often requires conscious effort to initiate the relaxation
response, to re-establish metabolic equilibrium, allowing for a
sense of well-being to return.
What is creativity?
• Creativity is the
juxtaposition of
ideas which were
previously
thought to be
unrelated.
• It is your ability
to combine ideas
in a unique way
or to make useful
associations
among ideas.
7
Enabling Creativity and Innovation
• Many organisations
unknowingly stifle
creativity, by failing
to provide a
management
structure and work
environment that
empower employees.
• What counts is
whether the novelty
he or she produces is
accepted for inclusion
in the domain.
(Csikszentmihalyi)
8
What changes could be made to facilitate creativity in the workplace?
How Creativity Translates into Innovation
• To be creative, you need
to be able to view things
in new ways or from a
different perspective.
• Tests of creativity
measure not only the
number of alternatives
that people can generate
but the uniqueness of
those alternatives
• George Domino created a
Creativity Scale that is
based on the Adjective
Checklist (Gough and
Heilbrun) to identify
creative abilities.
9
Implications of enhanced creativity
Innovation:
• Allowing ideas to
arise from all
employees as a
result of optimised
use of employee
creative potential.
Intrapreneurship:
• Enhanced
intrapreneurial
activity as a result
of the greater
number and quality
of generated ideas.
10
Discussion
11
Is our traditional mindset conducive to well-being and creativity?
 In what ways?
 What alternatives might be possible?
Alternate mindsets
12
Ideas of well-being as a good life trace
their origins to Aristotle’s concept of
eudaimonia (human flourishing).
Several types of alternate mindsets:
Equanimity: a state of mental or emotional
stability or composure arising from a deep
awareness and acceptance of the present
moment. (Mathieu Ricard)
Resilience: ability to cope with stress
and adversity. Resilient individuals use
positive emotions to bounce back from
negative emotional experiences.
(B. Fredrickson)
Mindful: paying attention in a particular
way; on purpose, in the present moment,
and non-judgmentally. (Kabat-Zinn)
Examples of current approaches
13
Physical wellness programs:
Massage and relaxation at Google Fitness at SAS
Yoga at Dreamworks Tai Chi at Canadian Federal
Taxation Office
Techniques
14
Can we devise an
organizationally-
feasible method to
enhance employees’
well-being and
creativity?
One method,
meditation, has been
known both
theoretically since
classical times and is
practiced in
companies aiming at
entering people into
an alternate mindset.
Where to go from here?
15
How would you suggest to bring
about alternate mindsets in the
workplace?
What challenges might employees
and managers encounter in making
such changes?
Whant to know more about these issues ?

Relaxation response 5 The counterbalancing mechanism to the stress response is the relaxation response, of the parasympathetic nervous system. • a physical state of deep rest that changes the physical and emotional responses to stress (H. Benson) • when you elicit the relaxation response, heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension decrease. However, given the reality of the majority of workplaces still operating in the old fashion, one way to reduce stress is a "relaxation response". as an "aspirin" to the fever: it certainly helps but it doesn't alter the causes of the fever.
  • 6. The quest for well-being and creativity 6 Some stress hormones continue to be produced until the relaxation response is elicited because the sympathetic nervous system dominates the parasympathetic nervous system. Thus, it often requires conscious effort to initiate the relaxation response, to re-establish metabolic equilibrium, allowing for a sense of well-being to return.
  • 7. What is creativity? • Creativity is the juxtaposition of ideas which were previously thought to be unrelated. • It is your ability to combine ideas in a unique way or to make useful associations among ideas. 7
  • 8. Enabling Creativity and Innovation • Many organisations unknowingly stifle creativity, by failing to provide a management structure and work environment that empower employees. • What counts is whether the novelty he or she produces is accepted for inclusion in the domain. (Csikszentmihalyi) 8 What changes could be made to facilitate creativity in the workplace?
  • 9. How Creativity Translates into Innovation • To be creative, you need to be able to view things in new ways or from a different perspective. • Tests of creativity measure not only the number of alternatives that people can generate but the uniqueness of those alternatives • George Domino created a Creativity Scale that is based on the Adjective Checklist (Gough and Heilbrun) to identify creative abilities. 9
  • 10. Implications of enhanced creativity Innovation: • Allowing ideas to arise from all employees as a result of optimised use of employee creative potential. Intrapreneurship: • Enhanced intrapreneurial activity as a result of the greater number and quality of generated ideas. 10
  • 11. Discussion 11 Is our traditional mindset conducive to well-being and creativity?  In what ways?  What alternatives might be possible?
  • 12. Alternate mindsets 12 Ideas of well-being as a good life trace their origins to Aristotle’s concept of eudaimonia (human flourishing). Several types of alternate mindsets: Equanimity: a state of mental or emotional stability or composure arising from a deep awareness and acceptance of the present moment. (Mathieu Ricard) Resilience: ability to cope with stress and adversity. Resilient individuals use positive emotions to bounce back from negative emotional experiences. (B. Fredrickson) Mindful: paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. (Kabat-Zinn)
  • 13. Examples of current approaches 13 Physical wellness programs: Massage and relaxation at Google Fitness at SAS Yoga at Dreamworks Tai Chi at Canadian Federal Taxation Office
  • 14. Techniques 14 Can we devise an organizationally- feasible method to enhance employees’ well-being and creativity? One method, meditation, has been known both theoretically since classical times and is practiced in companies aiming at entering people into an alternate mindset.
  • 15. Where to go from here? 15 How would you suggest to bring about alternate mindsets in the workplace? What challenges might employees and managers encounter in making such changes?
  • 16. Whant to know more about these issues ? • Marie Holm lectured about Personal Development and Innovation during an Executive MBA Master Class the 10th of April. • Her lecture has been webcasted on www.youtube.com/telecomEM • Learn more about Telecom Ecole de Management Executive MBA on www.telecom-em.eu/emba 16

Editor's Notes

  1. The nature of work stress and managerial skills for well-being at work. The session begins with a discussion of the nature of stress at workplaces—most of which lack true leaders—and its negative consequence both for people and organizations. In the second part, students will learn techniques and skills to manage stress and achieve well-being.
  2. Stress, while up to a certain level can enhance productivity and creativity, has reached such high levels within organizations that many are nearly not able to function at all. Thus, current levels of well-being, creativity and other factors liked to psychological well-being are sub-optimal as a result of this stress epidemic. For instance, Presenteeism: when people come to work but underperform because of illness or stress.
  3. Where do NUTS conditions come from? Tasks? Managers who give these tasks? Ie, what are the root causes of these NUTS conditions? Illustrate how stress sets in because of the NUTS condition when searching for the first job – Novel – having been a student for years, the domain of career and jobs seem foreign and unfamiliar, like stepping into new territory and a different lifestyle Unpredictable – lining up job opportunities, contacts and interviews, and yet not really knowing what will happen, where you will end up working, and even where you will be living, what you will end up doing, how long it will take to secure a job Threatening – financial stresses, career pressures, harsh competition, fears playing out as to whether you will be selected or not... and how the stress ‘feeds’ off of itself, often leading us into a downward spiral if we don’t counteract the direction of this momentum we could go NUTS! ;) Dr Lupien, Globe and Mail
  4. How can relaxation help me to deal when I'm in stress under an attack?
  5. When these stress hormones remain active in the brain for too long, they injure and even kill cells in the hippocampus, the area of the brain needed for memory and learning. My research delves into the mechanisms that can be used in organizational settings to effectively elicit the relaxation response, and change the participant’s mindset.
  6. Explain what a traditional mindset is and then engage people in the discussion (let 3-4 students give their opinion, search for the one who gets it right).
  7. Give the example of when I worked at Google and describe how I was involved with and felt with their wellness programs. Ask about their experiences and ideas regarding wellness programs.
