Stressed? Could be your business chemistry – Chicago Business Journal

A newly-released study by the Deloitte Greenhouse Experience asked more than 23,000 professionals about their stress levels at work and found their responses to stressors might have something to do with business chemistry, a system for understanding individual work styles. It also found that business chemistry type affects how individuals experience stress at work, with guardians reporting the most stress, followed by integrators, drivers, and pioneers. A second study with a sample of more than 17,000 professionals found people also cope with stress differently, depending on their business chemistry type.

Key Takeaways:

  • Faced with the same trigger, one person may remain cool as a cucumber while another melts down.
  • The top stress triggers in today’s work environment include workplace errors, a challenging workload with long hours or multiple responsibilities, and moments of conflict.
  • Action is the most popular strategy overall, used by 83 percent of respondents and all Business Chemistry types. As the famous saying goes: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

“Cognitive strategies, like considering the big picture or thinking through possibilities, are also common. Nearly 90 percent of pioneers reported using these methods to cope, while less than 70 percent of guardians did.”
