Managing stress “not a solo gig on this trade”


Communication is on the heels of connection, said Lin, moderator of the Choosing Resilience panel at the upcoming Women in Insurance California event. For example, a practical way to manage stress is to avoid potential problems or problems. If there is a conference to plan or meetings to prepare for, work ahead, and communicate with those who can help, she suggests. These days there are new and varied stressors in the world of work, and understanding these changes is important in achieving general balance, especially for women who may work from home while managing their private lives, which includes taking care of children or other family members may include.

The pace of change over the past two years is “a constant reminder to only manage the things that are in our control – that’s key to finding that balance,” Lin said, adding that it is crucial To find ways to adapt and be agile. Lin gives her team flexibility and the ability to make their own changes by helping them manage their own day, especially in remote work situations. Many people still work with what appear to be fixed boundaries, “but we have learned over the past two years that we can still work and succeed in different versions of what we believed to be.”

Trying new things can be as simple as changing the schedule, which for Lin meant adjusting her schedule to suit her. She works best in the early hours of the morning, and when she ends her day earlier, she is more available when her children come home than when she was in the office and had a set schedule.

“We have the ability to be our own creators and guides within ourselves to manage the process,” she said.

Lin started her career in public accounting but wanted to get into a more performance-driven industry and moved on to sell. This is the best business to be rewarded for your efforts, she said, calling it “the truest achievement society, period”.

Lin is attending an industry event aimed at women in the insurance industry because, to put it simply, “we need more of ourselves to be differentiated and grow the industry,” she said.

“There is a great opportunity for women to take a seat at the table with our ability to communicate information or come up with different solutions,” said Lin. “It is possible to have it all, especially in these difficult times when we have learned that we can do anything – albeit in different ways – and still reach the finish line.”
