CourseFree Webinar: The Stress Equation

In Sweden stress is the leading cause for sick leave and mental health issues for academics and knowledge workers. What sets stress apart from other areas of occupational health, is the focus on individual susceptibility and personal coping strategies, rather than proactively fixing the stressful work environment.

The Stress Equation is a model for categorizing and analyzing stress from an organizational level, rather than from a personal perspective. It helps teams and leadership of companies talk about stress as a system problem.

In this presentation Marcus Lagré talks about his observations from numerous organizations and teams on how pressure, complexity, and a sense of security affects the stress level and why he created the Stress Equation.
