The Stressors on Managers at Work: an Overview

Abstract

The success of any effort to minimise stress and maximise job satisfaction for managers will depend on accurate diagnosis, for different stressors will require different action. Any approach to stress reduction in an organisation which relied on one particular approach (e.g. transcendental meditation or job enrichment), without taking into account the differences within work groups or divisions, would be doomed to failure. A recognition of the possible sources of management stress therefore may help us to arrive at suggestions of ways of minimising its negative consequences. It was with this in mind that we decided to bring together the research literature in the field of management and organisational stress in a framework that would help us to identify more clearly sources of stress on managers.
