How do you handle stress? For example managing multiple clients at the same time. Explain how you'd react to a stressful situation, using examples from your work experience.

How to answer this question

When dealing with multiple clients, I prioritize tasks and break them down into smaller, manageable chunks. I then create a timeline to ensure that all of my commitments are met. I also take a few moments throughout the day to step away from my work and take a few deep breaths to clear my head. I also find that talking to a trusted colleague can help me to better manage any stress I may be feeling. For example, when I was working with two clients at the same time, I found that creating a detailed timeline of tasks was the most effective way to keep on top of my workload and ensure that both clients were receiving the attention and care they deserved. I also took regular breaks throughout the day when I was feeling overwhelmed or stressed. Talking to a colleague allowed me to gain a different perspective on the situation and to brainstorm possible solutions together.
