Some employees feel panic attacks coming on just thinking about an important deadline. Ease their concern with these three steps:
- Provide organization. Prepare all needed information before assigning a project to an employee prone to anxiety.
- Offer steps and information. Outline steps and offer resources for the project from the get-go.
- Check in. Provide reassurance or guidance as needed through regular check-ins with the employee.
