For a multitude of reasons our lives are more stressful than ever and the pressure is likely greater than it has ever been to produce and succeed. The rate of heart attacks caused by stress among adults is once again growing. The patterns of our lives that develop over time perpetuate a mentality that we must always produce something in order to avoid job loss or gain a promotion or, more generally, succeed. When working in groups, the person who succumbs to the pressures of succeeding at any cost often accepts more responsibility than can be reasonably expected of any individual.
We hear similar anecdotes related to the concept of leadership. The so-called leader of a group may in fact get the job done—but at what cost? Placing outsized value on the end-product, and not enough value how the process is created can have negative consequences, especially on the person who takes on that undue responsibility.
Support For Changing Your Perspective
If that describes you in any way, you may be in need of an adjustment to your perspectives on working in the context of groups. Laurie Grengs is a licensed, experienced, and highly respected therapist based in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, can help you achieve emotional, psychological, and even spiritual balance to help you manage the stress that goes along with leadership roles. We take on responsibilities for many reasons, and most of them could be valid reasons. But it is also very easy to lose perspective and therefore lose sight of the impact that taking on responsibilities has on us.
Laurie Grengs Can Help Change Patterns Of Behavior
It’s likely we have all been there at one time or another. It happens frequently in the workplace: an executive assigns a project and you have the responsibility of putting the team together. You have the greatest investment in the success of the project and the level of help you receive is unpredictable. You may be able to justify your approach to that team project on occasion. But what happens if the pattern of doing most of the work in group settings becomes permanent? How do you manage the stress that comes from expectations placed on you by bosses? It is a basic fact of life that we strive to flourish and thrive in the world, but another fact of life is that there are forces that work against our best interests. Laurie Grengs can help you maintain perspective on such things. For more information about the services Laurie Grengs provides, call 1-(877) 572-2326 or email her directly at .
