“What Anxiety Does to Us at Work.” A good, short list by Alice Boyes at HBR.org of negative tendencies when under stress:
- You misjudge the view others have of you.
- You’re defensive about feedback.
- You avoid situations then get perceived as difficult.
- You react negatively when presented with unexpected ideas.
As a good reminder, if the anxiety is office-wide, it’s likely others are exhibiting the same tendencies. Definitely worth a quick read for the detail and helpful suggestions.
