    Jo Yarker - Is Managing Work Stress an Individual or Team Sport?

    Jo Yarker is an organizational psychologist and director at Affinity Health at Work. She also runs programs at Birkbeck University.
    In conversations about work-life balance and managing work stress, the burden is often placed on the individual: wake up earlier, commit to a better schedule, drink more water. What if we approach the issue as a collective: where the more individuals feel supported in their work, the more they will support others?
