- Certain things make us all anxious. That's normal. Presenting to a group, getting feedback, or dealing with sudden changes at work may make everyone a little jittery. But when you get up with a knot in your stomach, day after day, or suddenly start panicking, anxiety can take over your life. In fact, anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric disorders. You are not alone. I'm Dr. Srini Pillay. Welcome to my course in Managing Anxiety in the Workplace.
I'm a Harvard-trained psychiatrist with a background in clinical psychiatry, brain imaging research, and executive coaching. As the former director of an anxiety disorders program, I can tell you first-hand that people are so relieved when they realize they don't have to live with anxiety forever. In this course, we'll examine the difference between a bad day and anxiety that needs clinical attention, when and where to seek help, how to talk to your colleagues about this, what to do to assist in your recovery, and how to manage and lead with anxiety in mind.
I hope this primer in managing anxiety will give you the guidance you need to help you life the fullest life possible.
