Is Stress Contagious?

Is Stress Contagious? | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it
When the person next to you yawns, chances are you're going to break off a tonsil-rattling exhale, too. And when your stressed-out colleague is demanding a meeting right now, the alarmed face quickly incites yours to mimic it.

John Michel's curator insight, October 25, 2013 9:22 AM

Researchers have long known about the infectious nature of stress. Pass-along strain runs rampant in relationships and work settings. Studies have shown that there is "crossover" stress from one spouse to the other, between coworkers, and "spill over" from the work domain to home. The stress contagion effect, as it's known, spreads anxiety like a virus. Our mirror neurons help suck us into the emotional eruptions of others.

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, November 1, 2013 8:50 PM

"As a social animal, we are built to relate to others, so much so that we physically reflect back their expressions and movements. The urge to echo is triggered by what are known as mirror neurons, brain cells that mimic the actions or emotions of others. While they help the species learn, understand, and bond, they can also be your undoing when the channeled behavior is the emotional contagion of stress."

How Comfortable Are You with Silence?

Diversity Management Is the Key to Growth: Make It Authentic

Diversity Management Is the Key to Growth: Make It Authentic | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it
Diversity management is the key to growth in today’s fiercely competitive global marketplace. No longer can America’s corporations hide behind their lack of cultural intelligence. Organizations that seek global market relevancy must embrace diversity – in how they think, act and innovate. Diversity can no longer just be about making the numbers, but rather how an organization treats its people authentically down to the roots of its business model. In today’s new workplace, diversity management is a time-sensitive business imperative.

In a day and age of more connectivity, is it not surprising that isolation appears on this list?

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 18, 5:29 PM

Pessimism, fear, pressure, isolation, and narrow-mindedness all kill creativity - and all can be present in struggling schools.  No wonder America continues to have schools that year after year fail to succeed.  We need creative problem solving - therefore, we must build school cultures that minimize the fear, pressure, and pessimism that come with being in a struggling school.
