Tensions in the Workplace

Tackling tension can cause anxiety. Finding the confidence to speak to your peers or management can be harder than it sounds if you don’t have a comfortable open relationship with them. From an employee point of view, finding the source of tension is where you should start and seeing if there’s anything you can do yourself to help the situation. Whether this is taking yourself away from the problem or finding coping mechanisms that help you. Finding common ground with your colleagues is a good way to get to the bottom of the situation as more times than not each party may have a similar concern.

From an employer’s point of view, holding regular meetings and checking in with everyone is always a good way to get conversations flowing and problems out in the open. Treating everyone fairly and avoiding favouritism will reduce any anxiety and stress for your colleagues.
