Top 3 Emotional Struggles Facing High Performance Leaders Today
TOXIC STRESS & TRAUMA
At the top of their game, high performance leaders face immense pressure. While healthy stress can facilitate greater performance, toxic stress and trauma can be difficult to manage, often leading to a decrease in overall performance, and an increase in a host of mental health issues, including burnout, depression, and anxiety.
2. RELATIONAL DISCONNECTION
Being on the top can be lonely. Feeling like someone seeks you out for your success or “what you can give to them” can make it difficult for many leaders to develop satisfying and trusting relationships. While typically seen as successful, these leaders often struggle in their personal relationships with friends, spouses, and children.
When stress or the pressure to perform increases, leaders can find themselves reaching out for ways to ease or distract from the difficult emotions happening on the inside. Addictions and negative patterns can become a core part of these individual’s lives, often leading to a breakdown in their ability to lead and perform.
