Stress is part of the ontological structure of today’s leadership. We see it on high-performance teams to those pushing the competitive edge as well as executives working long hours with demanding deadlines. Stress pushes us to excel, it increases our resiliency and makes us stronger. With the right amount of stress we can think clearer and express ourselves better, literally our brain functions better and when our brain functions better, we function better. This kind of stress is called eustress. When we move towards overwhelm a chain of events go off: We make poor choices, we make snap decisions, our muscles tighten, we run from difficult conversations. This stress we call distress. Somewhere between eustress and distress is a magical point called the optimal stress zone and it holds the perfect amount of stress for peak performance.
