The topic of this research, stress and its impact on Managers Success had and still dominating discussion in the field of management. 

This research exposes the multiple implications stress holds for Managers Success in particular and other dimensions of organizational life in general.

This study suggests how stress can be converted from seeing constraint to stimulating Managers Success.

Part of the myths that characterizes stress perception is that it is entirely a bad phenomenon. This was however vitiated by the series of literature reviewed in this work as well as interview conducted.

One of the successes of this research is the fact that it has provoke further inquiry by future researchers as the insights provided by the findings will be of immense value. Prominent in the list of findings is the fact that nobody is immune to stress.

It is the considered opinion of the researcher that stress with its bad reputation is not to be feared since it can be a catalyst for Managers Success. 




Two operative words emerged from the phrase-work of this

research topic, to wit, stress and Managers Success.

Dr. Hans Selye floated the idea of stress in 1936.  Since its discovery, organizational researchers have made several

attempts to assess its impact on organizational life but very little has been said about its positive effects (if any) on the life of individual and organization.  This forms the crux of this research.

Managers Success is the underlying objective in the employment of any factor of production.  This research will juxtapose stress vis-avis Managers Success with a view to finding out if there is correlation between these two recurring expression in the work place.

The increasing focus on the individual in the work place combined with a growing awareness of importance of health and safety and environmental issues has brought stress to the fore.

On occasions, all of us experience stress.  Beneficial stress can help derive a few of us to become champions, but harmful stress can drive others to despair.  Stress, therefore is a powerful force that should always be handled and investigated with respect.

Stress in an individual is any interference that disturbs a person’s healthy, mental and physical well-being.  It occurs when the body is required to perform beyond its normal range of capabilities.  The result of which is destructive to individuals, families, society and organizations, which can suffer from ORGANIZATIONAL


Stress has been called the “Invisible Disease.”  It is a disease that may affect the organization, and any of the people in it.  An organization with a high level of absenteeism, rapid staff turn over, deteriorating industrial and consumer relations, a worsening safety record, or poor quality control is suffering from organizational stress.  The causes may range from unclear or overlapping job descriptions to lack of communication, to poor working conditions.

The health and safety executives define stress as “the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them.”  The word “Pressure” from this definition needs a careful look.  It can create a ‘buzz’ and be a motivating factor, and the negative experience, which can occur when this pressure becomes excessive and the individual, is unable to cope.

Pressure is part and parcel of all work and helps to keep us motivated, but excessive pressure can lead to stress, which undermines performance, is costly to employers and can make people ill.  Although work related stress is not illness, the psychological impact of stress can contribute to problems with ill health.

The second coefficient of this research is Managers Success, which has

been defined by James A.F. Stoner and Charles Wankel (1988:214) as “The chief means whereby humankind can raise itself out of poverty to a condition of relative material affluence.”  The main way to increase output per capita (which normally translates directly into the standard of living) is by increasing Managers Success.  Managers Success then becomes the measure of how well an operation system functions.  The importance of Managers Success to our economic well being as a nation and to the survival of individual organization is demonstrated by the wide discussion it is currently receiving.  Such indicators of national economic health as inflation, economic growth and the balance of payments are related to the level of Managers Success and changes in this level.  For example, increase in Managers Success save scarce resources, since the resources requirement is less per unit of output.  Managers Success increases help mitigate inflation by counteracting the escalating costs of labour, materials, energy and other expenses.  Managers Success improvements also strengthen the competitive position of a firm or a country in the important international market.

For the individual manager, Managers Success is vital because it indicates the level of efficiency and competitiveness of his or her firm or department.

So, if stress can impact on Managers Success, to what extent and under what circumstances?


   Managers Success has     assumed       a       center       stage         in

employee/management relations in recent times.  It has become the yardstick with which remunerations and fringe benefits decisions are based.

In the light of this, organizational researchers are now concerned with factors that could enhance or mar Managers Success.  This research is an attempt to contribute to this topical and very important subject matter.

Prominent among the factors that have been identified as a sine qua non or an inhibition for Managers Success is STRESS.

Stress as a concept has received more negative connotation that its role as a catalyst to Managers Success.  This research therefore intends to find out positive aspects of stress.

The focus of the research shall be

-              How desirable is stress?

-              Is there any correlation between stress and Managers Success?

-              If yes, what is the equilibrium?

-              If no, then how destructive is stress?

-              What then are the yardstick of measuring Managers Success under stress and Managers Success without stress?


The study is designed to

1.           Evaluate the impact of stress on Managers Success.

2.           Suggest ways on how stress can be used as a catalyst for

Managers Success.

3.           Provoke or stimulate further research into the subject matter.


The study is important in that Managers Success is a determinant for measuring employee effectiveness and efficiency.

The study will highlight the negative and positive aspects of stress on Managers Success.

The study will expose employee’s reaction or behaviour when stressed.

The study is intended to significantly contribute to existing body of knowledge.  Also, the study will serve as a base for future researchers in the related field.


The study will concern itself with the impact of stress on Managers Success in organizations with particular reference to Star paper Mill Limited. The data for this study is mostly from Star paper Mill Limited, Aba. The study is also enriched through data from related literature text books.
