In the last byte, we completed the discussion on performance management with a summary of the discussion. In today's byte, we look at the concept of stress and begin discussion on the same with a few basic definitions.

Stress: Is the unconscious preparation to fight or flee that a person experiences when faced with any demand.

Stressor: Is the person or event that triggers the stress response

Distress: The adverse psychological, physical, behavioral, and organizational consequences that may arise as a result of stressful events

Strain: Is another name for Distress.

With this basic understanding, we begin the journey to understand stress better.
