50% of senior executives experience loneliness and a kind of isolation, a survey by RHR International showed. Most of them are confident that this affects their performance. Stress, pressure and loneliness distinguish the work of a top manager, experts say.
Ambitious employees who dream of becoming a CEO should know that such a great prospect has pitfalls, writes BusinessNewsDaily.
Consulting company RHR International interviewed 83 top managers in the United States, managing companies with annual revenues of $ 50 million to $ 2 billion, and found that those in high positions have a sense of isolation, and the actual working conditions are seriously different from expected.
While 87% of top managers said they were ready for what awaits them in a leadership position, 54% admitted that the working conditions of CEOs were different from what they expected. The number of such answers is even greater among those who first became the first person of the company. According to the survey, 91% of the top newcomers were ready for anything that a new position implies, but 72% said that the work was not quite what they imagined it was.
Another challenge for the CEO is the kind of isolation that a high position entails. The study showed that 50% of managers feel loneliness caused by their position, of which 61% believes that this loneliness undermines their productivity.
“This is a very common occurrence,” says Thomas Saporito, president of RHR International. “Stress, pressure and loneliness together make the work of a top manager unlike all the others.”
The study also found that the conventional wisdom about the tensions between the CEO and the board of directors is not consistent. 98% of the top managers surveyed said they had a good relationship with their boards of directors. 95% of respondents emphasized that the board supports many of the decisions they made, while 59% called the board of directors the best source of feedback.
