Recognizing Triggers of Pressure

1
Experiencing Pressure

It's almost certain that you'll have to deal with high pressure situations during your career. Some professionals, such as airline pilots or firefighters, deal with very high levels of pressure. Regardless of the scale of pressure – whether you're trying to land a plane suffering engine failure or trying to meet a production target – it's important that you manage the pressure effectively.

2
When Pressure Becomes Stress

Often, people say that they perform well under pressure. Or that they can't reach optimum performance without some element of pressure. It's true that pressure can be both energizing and invigorating. However, pressure can have a seriously negative impact when it isn't properly managed.

3
Situations that Trigger Pressure

Everyone reacts differently to pressure. And everyone's pressure trigger is different. There are four work-related factors that can trigger pressure: time pressure, work overload, relationship strain, and a necessity of balancing competing interests.

The Stress Response to Pressure

1
Responding to Stress

Pressure can cause you to react in different ways. Sometimes pressure can be an invigorating force that helps you achieve excellent results. But, on the other hand, pressure can be debilitating and hinder your ability to perform. It can be an opportunity for you to thrive, or a threat because it may lead to excessive stress.

2
Factors that Influence Your Response

Factors to consider in relation to your response to stress.

3
How Stress Affects You

To complete your understanding of your response to stress, you should be aware of the different ways stress affects you. Stress can manifest itself in physical, cognitive, emotional, or behavioral ways. These symptoms may have other origins than stress, but they are potential indicators of stress that should be considered nonetheless.

4
Pressure Responses

Experiencing excessive stress triggers different emotions in a person that cause an imbalance to occur. Instead of being calm, a person becomes worried or begins to act in an uncharacteristic manner. To restore the balance and neutralize the impact of stress, the human body releases endorphins.

Manage Attitude to Optimize Performance under Pressure

1
Having the Right Attitude

Work-related pressure can occur in any profession or industry. In some situations, it can lead to stress and this can cause suboptimal performance. Maybe you know a colleague who is very competent and efficient. But in pressurized situations, that person's ability and judgment becomes seriously impaired.

2
Taking Control While Under Pressure

Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you'll find that you can't control all the external factors that cause you to experience pressure. However, you can control your reaction to pressure. This will help you avoid wasting energy on negative emotions that can impede your performance at work.

3
Cultivating a "Success Mentality"

The second principle when managing your attitude is to cultivate a "success mentality." This involves using your emotions to your advantage, boosting self-confidence, having a "go to" statement prepared, focusing on what you can achieve, and cultivating an attitude for success.
