Career Consultants often tell workers to master computer skills, improve their communication style, and dress for success. However, the ability to perform well on the job in stressful situations is equally, or more important. Consider the following:
Stress-related incidents cost U.S. companies about $200 billion a year in workplace mistakes, bad decisions, and lost time, according to the International Labor Organization.
Each time you become upset on the job, you take approximately 10 minutes off your life.
Acute stress can cause brain damage, and a host of other life-threatening physical conditions according to Drs. Janet and Ron Glaser at The Ohio State School of Medicine.
The following quiz is not meant to provide a medical diagnosis. Instead, it will give you a quick snapshot of how effectively you manage workplace stressors.
