Proactively Managing Teacher Stress
🆘 International school leaders - what are you doing to help your teachers manage their stress (and manage your own, too)?
💻🎧 Many of us are still in lockdown and getting ready for more virtual learning in the next few weeks.
😫 Teacher stress results in rising cortisol (stress hormone) levels in students,* so it benefits everybody when you proactively manage stress as an organisation.
🤷♂️ How can we do this?
🏗️ Build your staff's psychological capital.
🧰 Psychological capital (PsyCap) is a set of internal resources that can be developed through short and simple interventions.
🦸🏻♀️ The four components of PsyCap spell out HERO:
- Efficacy (confidence)
🥛 When teachers' own cups are full of these resources, they have plenty to pour into students.
🏫 We build PsyCap every single day in Positivity School, our membership community for international school employees.
