Carole Spiers, author of Show Stress Who's Boss!, noted that Excessive pressure is nearly always the root cause of stress, so bosses need to ensure that they know and appreciate individual capabilities.
"Clear tasking and monitoring is the best way to achieve a balance and to ensure that excessive pressure does not turn into stress. Where an employee is struggling to cope, it is time to find a way to relieve some of the pressure," she explained.
Ms Spiers added that, once the stress is removed, the employee will invariably bounce back with increased productivity, which is exactly what every organisation wants to achieve.
Employees do not necessarily mind having to work hard or sometimes longer hours, but they need some acknowledgement of their efforts, she noted.
Managers hold the key to getting the most out of their team by communicating with them on a regular basis and making time to acknowledge work well done, the expert explained.
