Eight Ways To Reduce Stress And Finally Get Some Rest

Eight Ways To Reduce Stress And Finally Get Some Rest | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Worrying about deadlines, work flow or employee issues is natural for people working in the business world. Stress happens. You have options, though, on how you deal with stress.

 

Sometimes, taking a moment to recenter yourself is all you need to do: By putting things into perspective, you can find the grit to keep going. That’s not always the best course of action, though. If you find that a particular task or job regularly leaves you feeling overwhelmed, drained or quietly angry, you may want to rethink how you approach the work or even consider whether you’d be better suited for a different sort of job or different company.

How to make change easier and smoother

How to make change easier and smoother | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

It is getting harder to change. We are surrounded by a heady concoction of accelerating technological change, unremitting global socio-political unrest, and persistent economic frailty. However you want to characterise the times we live in, social, economic and commercial stability is not a part of it. And against this backdrop, it is hard to find an organization that is not engaged in a change or transformation process of some sort.

Not every entrepreneur will become a success. Some will choose other things over their business. Others will burnout because, frankly, they burnt the candle at both ends. Worse yet, some will be completely ignored. However, Sheth believes if you follow each of these five habits, you can be found in the ranks of successful entrepreneurs who have realized it’s a little bit of strategy, a little bit of healthy and a little bit of family that makes up the whole part of the entrepreneur in the end.

2,000 Executives Weighed In On Embracing Change. These 7 Keys Were Most Important

2,000 Executives Weighed In On Embracing Change. These 7 Keys Were Most Important | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it
Through their research, McKinsey studied the organizations that scored the highest and found these seven traits of "good implementers."

1. Ownership and commitment to change.
If you're going to have a shot at sustaining change, you'll have to assign clear, organization-wide ownership. This includes every department at every level across the organization. Although it's a tedious process, ensuring that everyone has a role and is a part of the big picture is vital to driving commitment.

2. A prioritized set of changes.
Tackling too many changes at once will bog down your organizations and lead to employee burnout. An operational or strategy shift doesn't happen overnight.

It can take months if not years before the benefits of organizational change are realized. To streamline the process and save employee's mental bandwidth, roll out a prioritized list of changes in succession.
