JOB STRESS & SATISFACTION

Motivasi Talk from Dr. Hj. Sulaiman

Before the seminar begins, our mind have been filled in with something useful...something meaningful and refreshing our mind...

JOB STRESS

- How people feel about the job overall and about different aspects of them – the extent to which they like their job (bagi aku….not a problem at all...i love my job)

- Stress is not necessarily something bad – it depends on how u take it. (yup…if u take it badly, it will become bad and worst for you, if u take it positively…it will make u move faster)

People feel stress when they have:-

· The time

· The experiences and

· The resources

· They feel great stress when

· They think they can’t handle the demands put upon them

(The degree of stress depends on ourself….it depends on the degree of our perceptions…if u think that u cannot handle it, then u become more stress though the demand is just a simple demand or task)

Stress is therefore…a negative experience

It depends a lot on people’s perceptions of a situation and their real ability to cope with it

(the ability to handle certain job or task will determine the level of stress)

Response :

Instinctive response : beyond our control( responses that cannot be controlled when someone stressed out)

Short-term “Fight-or-Flight” responses – basic survival response – brain will not working at this time…no rational thinking, just do the action:-

· Run faster and fight harder

· Excitable, anxious, irritable and jumpy – which will reduces our ability to work with people, find ourselves to make a god decision, difficult to execute precise, controlled skills

· Is a normal part of everyday life and a part of everyday stress, although often with an intensity that is so low that we do not notice it

General Adaptation Syndrome – long term effect of exposure to stress – testing to animals:-

· Alarm Phase – they reacted to the stressor

· Resistance Phase – the resistance to the stressor increased as the animal adapted to and cope with it

· The way we think and interpret the situations

SIGNS OF BURN OUT

· You find yourself being more cynical, critical and sarcastic (tegur dalam bentuk destructive) at work

· You have lost the ability to experience joy

· You have to push yourself to work and / or you have trouble getting started once you arrive

· You face insurmountable barriers to work

· You lack of energy, motivation and / or ambition to be consistently productive

· You can no longer laugh at yourself or your mistakes at work

· You feel disillusined about your job

· You have to use food, drugs or alcohol to feel better or to simply not feel

· Your sleep pattern have changed

· You have loss of appetite – habit makan berubah (kurang makan atau terlebih makan)

· You have started to experience more headaches neck pain or back pain

· If you use a keyboard, do your fingers feel as though they do not want to move over the keys

RECOVERY FROM JOB BURNOUT

The terms and cons, in order to recover from the job burnout :-

· must admit that we’re burnout to address the issue, but it takes you to admit to yourself it is occuring

· to determine the cause

· take the appropriate action to solve your problems

sometimes just simply believing enough in prayer and talking aloud (in a secret place of course) and express all the thing you feel – mengadulah kepada Tuhan Yang Maha Esa, Dialah tempat sebaik-baik pengaduan.

HOW WE MANAGE STRESS:-

· Action-oriented – seek to confront the problem causing the stress, changing the environment

· Emotionally-oriented – manage stress by changing the interpretation of the situation and the way we feel about it

· Acceptance-oriented – focusing on surviving the stress, accept the fact that different people has different behaviour...n
