Leader stress

“Leaders experience ‘power stress’ , or stress from three functions that could each overwhelm an average brain: having too much to do, dealing with uncertainty, and being seen by others. High stress reduces the capacity to think clearly, and reduces people’s ability to come up with creative solutions to complex problems.”  ~  David Rock
