Stress is an interesting word. We can stress the need to take extra time, to get that report done or we can be stressed, that we need to get that report done. In one case, stress is a constructive concept to help us manage our time more effectively and grow, in the other it puts a lot of pressure on you.
In exercise we use stress (load) to build muscle, strength & resilience. Stress can be a very positive force in our lives. As a leader, your role is to manage stress in a way that helps build strength & resilience in your team.
