New Study: Leaders Are Less Stressed Than Their Subordinates

New Study: Leaders Are Less Stressed Than Their Subordinates | Leadership and Productivity | Scoop.it

By measuring a stress hormone and asking questions about anxiety levels, researchers found that leaders experience less stress than subordinates. Published on Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

   

Excerpted:
   

To gauge anxiety levels, the researchers asked the subjects to respond to a series of statements like, “I get in a state of tension or turmoil as I think over my recent concerns and interests,” and rate them on a scale of one to four. The leaders’ responses to the anxiety questionnaire showed they were less stressed than the non-leaders.

 

A couple of other interesting things the study found: The leaders were more likely to be male and to have more money than the subordinates. They also exercised more, smoked less, woke up earlier, slept less and drank more coffee than the non-leaders.
      

Though the study’s findings may seem counterintuitive (DN: to some of us) —we think of leaders as pressurized workaholics, especially in these tight economic times—they are consistent with earlier research suggesting that people who have more of a sense of control, are less stressed.
