Proactively Managing Teacher Stress

๐Ÿ†˜ International school leaders - what are you doing to help your teachers manage their stress (and manage your own, too)?

๐Ÿ’ป๐ŸŽง Many of us are still in lockdown and getting ready for more virtual learning in the next few weeks.

๐Ÿ˜ซ Teacher stress results in rising cortisol (stress hormone) levels in students,* so it benefits everybody when you proactively manage stress as an organisation.

๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ How can we do this?

๐Ÿ—๏ธ Build your staff's psychological capital.

๐Ÿงฐ Psychological capital (PsyCap) is a set of internal resources that can be developed through short and simple interventions.

๐Ÿฆธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ The four components of PsyCap spell out HERO:

- Hope

- Efficacy (confidence)

- Resilience

- Optimism

๐Ÿฅ› When teachers' own cups are full of these resources, they have plenty to pour into students.

๐Ÿซ We build PsyCap every single day in Positivity School, our membership community for international school employees.

๐Ÿ‘‡ Curious? Send me a chat message at the bottom of the screen to arrange a demo for your leadership and wellbeing teams.
