Being the boss isn’t so stressful after all

A new study just out from James Gross of Stanford University and six other researchers has shown that the higher people go as a leader, the less stress they experience.

It turns out that being the CEO is less stressful than being a senior manager.

It’s an intriguing idea, as it flies in the face of the current thinking about leadership, which has supported the notion that top leaders are under enormous stress.
