Every second top manager is lonely

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 problem for CEOs is the certain isolation that high office entails. The study found that 50% of managers feel lonely because of their job, of which 61% believe that loneliness undermines their productivity.

“This is a very common phenomenon,” says Thomas Saporito, President of RHR International. "Stress, pressure and loneliness combine to make the job of a top manager unlike any other."

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.
