Summary

An overview of the most recent ideas on managerial stress is presented along with worksheets and exercises for a program to help educational administrators, their staffs, and secretaries cope with and reduce organizational and personal stress. Research cited includes the author's survey of 1,200 Oregon school administrators and over 200 secretaries from schools and district offices. The first part of the program involves completion of stress logs to note all the different kinds and sources of stress as well as to observe the daily patterns and weekly cycles of stress. This is followed by a series of exercises to identify all possible on-the-job stressors, assess the relative impact of each, list the most bothersome ones, and decide the amount of control one has over each. A stress management program can begin with the self-diagnosis of stressors. The top five stressors are to be listed and categorized into external and internal control factors. For those stressors where internal control is possible and the actual cause of the stress can be attacked, the "Seven Steps to Managing Stress" process is recommended. The process is explained and work sheets provided. (MLF)
