Manage Stress

CEO’s and other top leaders often find themselves in very stressful situations balancing the

“needs of the business” and the “their personal lives”.

 

Continuous pressure to perform at a high level can take a toll on even the most self-reliant people and when all is said and done executives are people first and leaders only part of the time.

Stress can be an insidious condition that “sneaks-up” on us…we are simply not aware of it or we just ignore the early warning signs. This can of course lead to serious physical and behavioral consequences.

MayoClinic.org Stress Information  provides us with an excellent list of some of the effects on our bodies and behavior.
