Role strain refers to the stress experienced in a particular role, social or professional. It's not the same as role conflict, in terms of definition, but role strain may be based on role conflicts which add extra strain in the performance of a role. Role strain may also be experienced in the form of expectations, either one's own or that of others, creating unwelcome demands for performance in the role. In business, role strain can refer to the stress of holding a position or the requirements of the position.
