Are you ready to beat burnout? Biz Chem’s lead researcher offers insights

Suzanne Vickberg 2018 E WebIf you’re feeling stressed too often, maybe it’s time to consider whether you’re in an environment where you thrive?  If not, how can you find one?

Thrive Global has published a new article with Business Chemistry lead researcher, Dr. Suzanne Vickberg, “Essential Questions to Ask When You’re Stressed, Based on Your Working Style.”

“Our research with more than 40,000 individuals has shown that the four Business Chemistry types experience stress differently. Guardians, who value stability, feel stressed more often than their opposite type, Pioneers, who value possibilities. Integrators, who value connections, are more stressed than their opposite, Drivers, who value challenge. We’ve also found that the types use different methods for coping with stress,” writes Vickberg.

“We experience stress when we perceive a threat to something we care about. And because we don’t always differentiate between big threats and little threats, many of us walk around in a state of heightened stress much of the time,” she said.

Have you ever struggled to communicate with someone who spoke a different language? Did you perhaps end up raising your voice, hoping to make yourself understood? Chances are it didn’t help get your point across. It’s the same with working styles. When faced with someone who’s different, turning up the volume on what’s most comfortable for you won’t get you very far. Worse, if you’re dealing with a whole team of people, the problems with that approach are amplified.
