How Men And Women Respond Differently To Stress

How Men And Women Respond Differently To Stress | SPARKWIZE | Scoop.it

We all carry stress at one point or another. The feeling of being overwhelmed with responsibilities, to the point where our central nervous system begins to turn on us, is simply a part of life. Now new research suggests men and women tend to respond in markedly different ways.


Scientists from several international universities found that men under stress generally respond by becoming more withdrawn and acting more as an individual. Women, on the other hand, become prosocial. They share their stress with others, hoping to elicit empathy, and expect to be relied on when other members in their group are stressed, too. Where men become more self-centered, thinking their emotions are universally shared, women often become more compassionate, the team argues.

Stretched Too Thin? 5 Strategies For Coping With Too Much Work

Stretched Too Thin? 5 Strategies For Coping With Too Much Work | SPARKWIZE | Scoop.it

Having too much work has become the new normal. With the economy still volatile and employment opportunities still tight, the perfect environment exists for overwork. Employers keen on doing more with less keep resources lean and don’t give managers the budget to do otherwise. Employees nervous about dwindling options take on the extra responsibilities and don’t push back. Everyone suffers when there is too much work — decreased quality, lower morale, increased burnout. Ideally, the entire company is in on the fix – additional resources are brought in, emphasis is renewed on sustainable work/ life balance, key priorities are clarified. However, until there is a clear directive that the workplace will change, your work still needs to get done.

Developing Leaders in a Business

Developing Leaders in a Business | SPARKWIZE | Scoop.it

The shortcomings of command-and-control management are becoming ever more apparent. The hierarchy of bosses organized into ranks, with each superior exercising authority over subordinates who do exactly what their boss wants, has long been the dominant form of corporate organization. But recognizing that they are handicapped by their current systems, many companies are now questioning the way they manage themselves. They are striving for greater effectiveness and flexibility to cope with and capitalize on the fast-moving, ever-changing competitive conditions they see just ahead.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Winning the Customer

A Step-by-Step Guide to Winning the Customer | SPARKWIZE | Scoop.it

Let’s begin with a question: Who are your competitors? Take a minute to list two, three, or four companies. Then ask yourself how you know that these are your closest rivals. Are they the companies that most often pitch for business alongside your company? Do their brands sit beside yours on the shelf? Are they coming up close to your brand in search-page rank? Do they compete with you for resources and employees? Do they vie with you for the consumer’s dollar?


If a company or brand is truly your competitor, you should have answered yes to at least some of these questions. But ultimately, only one condition really determines a rival: whether your target customers include it among the brands they consider in relation to yours.
