Dr Karl Albrecht published his model of the four common types of stress in his 1979 book, “Stress and the Manager.” These are:
- Time stress.
- Anticipatory stress.
- Situational stress.
- Encounter stress.
While everyone experiences different physical and emotional symptoms of stress, it’s important to understand how you respond to each one. When you can recognize the type of stress you’re experiencing, you can take steps to manage it more effectively.
