Stress is a major issue in the United States. One out of every three Americans live with an unhealthy level of stress and nearly half of Americans say their stress has increased over the last five years.
There are all kinds of health problems related to the unhealthy levels of stress Americans deal with everyday.
The Stress Source Profile will tell you your specific level of stress. Not only does this test tell you your stress level, but it explains the specific source of your stress. Once you know the cause of your stress, you’ll better be able to do something about it.
Imagine knowing your greatest stress is caused by a lack of role clarity? You’ll immediately be able to address that issue to lessen your overall stress level. You can see an example of the result page for the Stress Source Profile Assessment.
The Stress Source Profile will also measure:
- Work-Life Balance
- Role Potential (feeling of stagnation and lack of growth)
- Alignment of Expectation (conflicting demands)
- Role Shift (feeling utilized)
- Workload Level
- Team Support
- Competence Perception
- Culture Alignment
- Role Clarity
- Resource Availability
Now, it’s one thing to take this test as an individual, but imagine taking it with your whole team? The SSP is one part of the AMP informational database. AMP builds upon info found in the SSP by examining and measuring 30 job stressors. Once your team takes this assessment, we’ll be able to go much deeper than the information given by the SSP.
On a personal note, I wish I could make this a mandatory assessment for pastors. If you’re a pastor, elder, church planter or denominational leader, it’s utterly essential to keep tabs on the level and specific source of your stress and that of your leaders.
