Power, status, stress and your leadership

Power is considered the extent to which you control or have access to important resources; status is considered the amount of deference or respect you receive in your work; stress is defined as a negative psychological and physiological response to events in your environment; and leadership is the behavior you show to help others achieve a shared goal.

During this event we will explore how your position might be affecting your stress levels and the leadership behavior that you demonstrate at work. In order to participate, you will need to complete a questionnaire online ahead of time. This questionnaire will ask about your role and your experiences in that role. You will also need to have at least one direct report answer a few questions about you. Both questionnaires will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.


how power and status (otherwise considered positive aspects of the working environment) might be negatively affecting your health and leadership behavior.

methods for getting the most out of the positive effects of your power position and alleviating the negative effects.

that the goal is not to reduce your power or status but rather to buffer yourself from their potentially insidious effects.

Target audience

Managers at all levels of their career who feel like their hierarchical position at work might be causing them some negative physical, psychological, or behavioral effects.
