While interviewing a potential employee, I asked her to tell me about a time when she was stressed at work and to explain how she handled that stress.
“Well,” she began, “we just had so many deadlines. Everyone was asking me to do so many things. They, they were just pressurizing me…”
That was all I heard. No matter how hard I tried, all I could imagine was her exploding like a pressure cooker left unattended. KABOOM!
