1. What steps of the general adaptation syndrome will I experience? Well I think at first I would hit the Alarm reaction. The boss seems to be putting on a lot of pressure and to me it sounds a little alarming because I just wouldn’t know what to do. Then I would definitely go right into the exhaustion stage because I would be putting my body through so much work on top of stressing out over getting the promotion. 2.

If there is anything I learned at work it is that upper management like to see when lower management seeks out help instead of trying to be an over achiever all by themselves. So I think that by asking for help or discussing the issue with my manager would actually better my chances of getting the position and at the same time help me stay stress free....
