PQ has identified that patterns of work do drive Strong physiological responses. Long hours, absent Daytime Recovery and unfocused management practices have measurable consequences.
Stubbornly persistent levels of Accumulated Stress impair the Capacity to carry intermittent high loads of Strain. Additionally, the elasticity of Peak Stress Response is eroded, potentially limiting the quality of focus and judgement.
The productivity Potential clear if the issues are addressed.
This is an unmanaged epidemic, analogous to functioning alcoholism.
There is no short cut to address Accumulated Stress.
