Tackling senior executive stress has become urgent due to the increase of prominent cases of stress in senior leaders. Commonly used stress and leadership development inventories do not always pick up on stress issues due to the taboo of executive stress. The Webinar was organised around real-life cases and introduces insights from psychodynamic theory on tackling stress. It started with insights on workplace stress and its effect on work performance and health. After exploring the difficulties that might arise when evaluating executive stress, participants were presented with the coaching protocol that outlines how a psychodynamic approach can be used to get a deeper understanding of the stress experience, and how this approach can also help later on in the coaching process to determine the knowing-doing gap. Participants applied the learning to real-life cases and left with expert advice on how to make use of the insights in practice.
