„Knowledge Workers and the taboo of Stress and Depression” mit Gitte Klitgaard

Stress and stress-induced depression hit many knowledge workers, and yet it is still a taboo. “I am stressed” has become something we hear every day, and it has almost become prestigious to say so; it shows that we are busy, important people. On the other hand, it is a bit embarrassing to be really stressed and not being able to handle it. We feel awkward when people are stressed or come back from sick leave. We try not to talk about it. It is so much easier with a broken leg; we can carry stuff for them, hold the door, get coffee etc., but what do we do with a person with stress?

Gitte has been sick with stress and it took nine months to come back. It was the second time and it had to hit me hard before she took it seriously. She believes strongly in talking openly about stress and depression. It is the only way we can learn from it; the way we can make it okay to say “I need help!”.

In this talk Gitte will discuss the taboo and explore why it hits knowledge workers so often, as well as come with tips and trick to prevent it.

The talk will be in english.

Bei der Lean DUS #42 beschäftigen wir uns mit Stress in modernen Arbeitswelten. Dazu haben wir Gitte Klitgaard, Agile Coach aus Dänemark, eingeladen.

Gitte Klitgaard is quite active in the software community, speaking at and organizing (un)conferences. Her focus is on agile and she has a huge interest in the people aspects: communication, listening and creating a safe space for people to be themselves. She believes in and helps teams to find joy and purpose at work, and uses glitter and hugs to make every day a bit better.

Since 2013 Gitte has had her own company and worked across Europe as an agile coach; latest at Spotify where she finished a long assignment at the end of September.
