Eighty-eight percent of leaders report that work is a primary source of stress in their lives and that having a leadership role increases the level of stress. More than 60 percent of surveyed leaders cite their organizations as failing to provide them with the tools they need to manage stress. More than two-thirds of surveyed leaders believe their stress level is higher today than it was five years ago. Nearly 80 percent of surveyed leaders state they would benefit from a coach to help them manage stress.
