1. How to handle stress as a Project Manager?

I'm not the type of person that becomes stressed very easily. However, if in an extreme circumstance I did start to become stressed, I would look to the cause of it and attempt to identify a solution. I would certainly not be afraid to look to others for their input and assistance. In a working environment I think stress comes around from pressurized situations. In such cases the best solution is often one of situation management until the crisis abates.

I hardly ever get stressed; however, I do encounter different kinds of challenges. The recipe for me to overcome those challenges is to get to the bottom of the problem and deal with it immediately before it becomes a disaster.
