When we think workplace strain and fatigue, we tend to think first about workers – those in positions other than management. But a recent Gallup report indicates managers are experiencing higher levels of stress and burnout than their reports, which impacts their own level of engagement and productivity, as well as their capacity to inspire higher levels of individual and team performance.
Gallup suggests stress-relief can come from following guidance from the best managers, those who coach and develop people, instead of directing and administrating. Through regular, meaningful individual and team conversations about goals and progress against goals, they create a coaching culture to facilitate employee learning & growth.
